An attractive individual detached bungalow enjoying a private but not isolated setting in a rural hamlet on the very edge of the parish of Backwell with gardens and a paddock area amounting to over 1/3rd acre and neighboured by several substantial properties that are also set in extensive gardens.
The bungalow was built in the early 1980’s replacing a much more modest structure that had been in the ownership of a sea captain and came complete with sea shells embedded in the render. The present owners saw the potential of the shack and that building was entirely demolished during construction of this property which has been a much loved home for almost 40 years.
The new bungalow was designed to take advantage of the position and offers a selection of light airy rooms that overlook the private garden. Over the years the property has been updated and improved and so offers the opportunity to acquire a comfortable home with extensive gardens and huge potential for extension if any additional accommodation is required, subject to any necessary consents.
The well presented accommodation includes a dual aspect entrance porch that opens to the spacious double aspect almost 21’ x 13’ (6.41m x 3.96m) living room that has a feature fireplace with a wood burning (multi fuel) stove inset and French doors opening to a wide terrace and the main lawns. The living room allows ample sitting and dining space though, the adjoining kitchen breakfast room, fitted in the timeless shaker style has a breakfast bar for informal eating. The kitchen also overlooks and opens to the terrace and lawn.
An inner hall separates the bedrooms and bathroom from the living room with both bedrooms arranged as double rooms with the larger room having a series of fitted wardrobes and French doors opening to the rear.
The spacious full bathroom has been attractively updated with a contemporary suite including freestanding bath and a separate shower enclosure.
The gardens are a particular feature with a pair of gates opening from the lane to a driveway that provides parking and from here a path leads to the front door. A second gateway just a few yards to the west opens to a paddock area with further parking and turning space.
The gardens and paddock are enclosed by established hedges and to the rear timber panel fencing that combine to offer a high degree of privacy while the broad sweeps of lawn are flanked by well planted borders creating a charming setting. In addition there are several small outbuildings.
