A fabulous individual detached bungalow enjoying a private, hidden away position in this highly desirable part of Backwell and offering a beautifully presented 4 double bedroom, 3 bathroom home that has been updated and improved in recent years with great flair and to a high standard.
The property was originally built in 1997 by a respected local building company to an excellent specification. However, since the present owners acquired the bungalow in 2014, they have had a number of improvements carried out that have transformed the feel of the property. The updates have included a good quality fitted kitchen breakfast room and new bathrooms together with the installation of genuine oak flooring and oak doors.
The neutrally decorated and very attractive living space is extremely versatile and includes a stunning reception hall that immediately gives an impression of light and space. There is a cloakroom, a doorway leading to the bedroom wing of the bungalow, doors open to a sitting room, the kitchen breakfast room and double doors lead to the living room.
The living room is outstanding, amply spacious and enjoying a dual aspect over the gardens to the rear. The oak flooring continues through from the hall. There are French doors to a patio and the garden and a feature hole in the wall fireplace with a remote control living flame gas fire.
On the opposite side of the hall a very attractive half vaulted sitting room overlooks a charming courtyard area at the front with full drop windows, Velux roof windows and a feature wood burning stove.
The kitchen breakfast room is fully fitted with an excellent range of wall and floor cabinets with ample granite worksurfaces, a Rangemaster range cooker, an integrated dishwasher and integrated fridge. The flooring in the kitchen is ceramic tiling that continues through to a utility room that overlooks the front and rear with further storage cupboards, appliance space and a door to the rear garden.
A guest bedroom suite includes a double bedroom with oak flooring and a full bathroom en suite.
The main bedroom wing of the bungalow is accessed via an inner hall that has a built in linen cupboard and an additional cupboard that houses the high output gas fired combi boiler.
The principal bedroom is an excellent size and includes a wall to wall range of fitted wardrobes incorporating hanging and shelf space. The bedroom in turn opens to an en suite shower room that in keeping with all three bathrooms is very well appointed.
The second (with a fitted wardrobe) and third bedrooms are again double rooms that are arranged to overlook the garden at the rear, while the family bathroom can also be found off the inner hall.
The bungalow is approached from Church Lane via a pair of gates that open to a long block paved drive that arrives at a forecourt providing parking and the attached Garage with an up and over door, light, power, overhead storage and a personnel door to the rear.
The trellis screens the forecourt from a private courtyard area and the drive is screened by local stone walling with brick planters stocked with a colourful variety of shrubs.
A gate at the side of the bungalow leads to the garden at the rear where a secluded paved terrace adjoins the back of the bungalow and leads in turn to the level lawn with shaped borders stocked with a superb variety of specimen shrubs and bushes. The garden continues around to the far side of the bungalow and has been designed to create various ‘outside rooms’ with all areas enjoying complete privacy.
The metal frame greenhouse, timber shed and raised vegetable beds are included in the sale and there are outdoor power points, lighting and an outside tap and sink.
All mains services are connected. Full gas central heating through radiators. Double glazing. High speed broadband services are available including Superfast cable broadband (500mb downloads and upwards), TV, and telephone services.
