A long, sweeping drive gives access to a generous parking area and integrated garage. The house opens into a spacious hallway through a solid wood linen-fold style door.
The blue-painted sitting room is large with a darker blue feature wall and polished stone fireplace, creating a welcoming focal point when entering. The coved ceiling and glazed double patio doors add to the sense of spaciousness in the room. The dining room is decorated in taupe and white, giving a lovely garden view and access to the conservatory. With full-height windows, the conservatory is constructed almost entirely of glass and offers a fabulous view of the paved patio areas and the lawn.
The kitchen is in two parts and is finished with white floor units and several glazed and white wall cabinets. Marble worksurfaces are extensive, and the L-shaped setting leaves plenty of room for preparation, plus space for a table and chairs. The cooking area and sink is located just beyond the main body of the kitchen, providing a separate and spacious area for serving and cleaning up.
The bungalow’s generous 136m2 means that its bedrooms are comfortably sized. The principal bedroom is painted blue to give a relaxing, peaceful feel. Striking white and mirror-fronted wardrobes create an attractive area for storage and the white vertical radiator and white joinery ensure the room is both cosy and stylish.

This room also benefits from a similar mirrored wardrobe and vertical radiator. The room offers plenty of space and is a comfortable and elegant-looking retreat.
The third bedroom is located just beyond the dining room. Its proximity to the dining room and conservatory creates the potential of a delightful suite of adjoining living spaces, echoed in its current use as an office. Decorated in robin egg blue, it captures the south-facing light beautifully and pairs well with the adjacent dining room. The shower room is finished in a blend of long grey tiles and stylish textured finishes, complementing the high-quality shower room fittings.
