Nestled in a charming private setting in this highly desirable exclusive location, this distinguished individual detached bungalow offers extensive but easily managed accommodation including particularly attractive reception rooms complemented by an exceptional conservatory, a superb fully fitted kitchen breakfast room and matching utility room, 3 double bedrooms with fitted wardrobes, en suite and guest bathrooms, a double garage and delightful sunny garden facing south and west.
As you will find when you visit, and we certainly recommend that you do, the refined, well thought out design is just a part of the appeal, the light and space is extremely attractive and throughout the bungalow is beautifully presented.
The Uplands has always been a desirable address where a series of high quality bungalows and a handful of houses are arranged off a wide avenue and this bungalow is one of a pair of differing later bungalows that were built by a respected local developer as recently as 1990.
In the intervening years, this bungalow has been carefully maintained and thoughtfully updated while the layout has been enhanced by the addition of a particularly attractive conservatory offering a versatile space suitable for sitting and dining for year-round enjoyment. Both the kitchen breakfast room and bathrooms have been tastefully modernized and the attractive decor adds to the contemporary feel of the accommodation.
Elegance and attention to detail define this lovely home and as you step into the welcoming mostly glazed hexagonal entrance porch a generously proportioned reception hall beckons.
The reception hall leads to the reception rooms, the Kitchen Breakfast Room and to a Cloakroom which is a rare and tremendously useful feature in a bungalow of any size. The hall then leads away to an inner hall and the bedroom wing of the bungalow nicely separating the two distinct areas of living space.
The spacious over square Sitting Room is a delight taking advantage of a bright triple aspect over the gardens and patio area. The simple classic fireplace has a living flame gas fire inset adding warmth and character, while built-in bookcases and cabinets flanking the fireplace offer both functionality and visual appeal.
Next, the living room was originally purposed as a formal Dining Room and this second reception area offers good versatility having been furnished as a comfortable TV – Family Room with an outlook through French doors that open to the conservatory.
The transition into the striking conservatory bridges indoor comfort with the allure of the outdoors and expansive glazing bathes this and the adjacent rooms with natural light. The floor here is ceramic tiled, plenty of transom windows allow good ventilation and there are double doors drawing you out to the secluded patio area with access then to the lawn.
The heart of the property is the Kitchen-Breakfast Room. In recent years the kitchen has undergone a complete transformation and has been extensively fitted with an impressive array of contemporary Shaker-style wall and floor cupboards. These cupboards hold secrets within—deep pan drawers and flex corner storage. The ensemble of integrated appliances includes twin ovens with a matching warming drawer. A five-burner gas hob is crowned by a stainless steel chimney hood and there is a concealed dishwasher and a larder fridge. The ample worksurfaces with an inset one and a half bowl sink and drainer contrast with the cabinets and a dresser with matching display cupboards is fitted to one side. In addition, there is more than enough space for a table, perfect for informal meals.
A doorway leads to the utility room that is fitted in the same style as the kitchen with a tall larder cupboard, a corresponding integrated fridge freezer and a concealed washing machine – tumble dryer. There is a stable door to a side porch with a further door to a courtyard and the drive.
The Inner Hall continues the feeling of space with doors to the bedrooms and bathroom, a hatch allowing access to the loft, a walk-in cupboard housing the gas-fired boiler supplying domestic hot water and central heating with a further walk-in airing cupboard.
The Principal Bedroom greets you with its understated charm. The bedroom's dual aspect enhances the feeling of space with French doors that open to the conservatory, extending your gaze to the patio and garden beyond.
There is an extensive suite of fitted furniture, including wardrobes, bedside cabinets, and chests of drawers all thoughtfully arranged, and a door opens to the En Suite Shower Room that is generously sized and has been tastefully refurbished with tiling to complement a close-coupled WC, a vanity unit with a wash hand basin and a spacious shower enclosure with a thermostatically controlled shower.
The Second Double Bedroom also has a range of fitted wardrobes, a chest of drawers and coordinated bedside cabinets.
The Third Bedroom includes a built-in triple wardrobe offering ample storage with a fitted desk and bookcase giving the room a dual function as a further double room or an excellent study.
The Guest–Family Bathroom is again well appointed with ceramic wall-tiling and a contemporary white suite comprising a panelled bath with an overhead shower, a pedestal wash hand basin and a close-coupled WC.
Outside: A lengthy private driveway shared exclusively with the neighbouring bungalow, leads from The Uplands to the courtyard-style drive of the property.
The block-paved courtyard provides parking space for several cars and leads to the detached Double Garage with remote-controlled up-and-over doors, lighting, power, storage space above, and a personnel door to the side.
A level lawn is arranged to the right of the drive and this part of the garden is screened by a reconstituted stone wall and a lovely selection of established trees, shrubs and bushes with shaped well-planted floral borders that come together to provide a considerable degree of privacy.
The lawn sweeps around to the west of the bungalow where the primary section of the garden enjoys sunshine all day. A gate opens in turn from the lawn to the particularly attractive shaped block-paved patio area that is perfectly situated to bask in sunshine from early morning until late evening. Once again, there's a broad selection of specimen shrubs and bushes, along with a pergola nestled in one corner of the garden.
There is pathway access all the way round the bungalow and a green house is tucked away to one side.
