This magnificently extended and refurbished chalet bungalow really brings a surprise when you first walk through the front door! What may seem at first like an ordinary 1980s bungalow in a pleasant cul-de-sac of similar properties, is, in fact, a prime example of a 'Grand Designs' style bespoke home, for fans of open plan living, comfort and luxury features.
The lounge-diner has an inset gas fire and backlit display shelves. A big opening then leads through into the real highlight of this property: a fabulous contemporary style kitchen-breakfast room with bi-folding doors out to the garden. The appliances comprise an integral eye-level oven, oven-microwave combination, gas & electric induction hobs, electric plate warmer, extractor hood, dishwasher, fridge, freezer, large cutlery and saucepan drawers, and several larder-style cupboards, a waste disposal unit, boiling water tap, pop-up mains and USB sockets, and a water softener. There are plenty of LED spotlights, over the cooking area and the breakfast bar. The utility room houses the washing machine. A cupboard in the hallway has ventilation for a tumble dryer.
The loft was converted around 2007; this now accommodates a great size master bedroom with walk-in wardrobe, some remote-operated skylight windows and blinds, and a fully tiled en-suite with a bidet, double 'Monsoon' shower, and heated towel rail.
Other finishing touches include underfloor heating in the kitchen-breakfast room and en-suite, and heating upstairs on a separate zone. Throughout both ground floor bedrooms, the study and the hallway, there is a comprehensive range of fitted shelves, desk space and drawers. The 2nd bedroom has a basin and shower cubicle.
Vendor's comments: "I completed the build, from new, to my own designs. I've loved it here, but now it's time to start thinking about retirement... and my next project!"
