A rare opportunity to purchase an attractive detached chalet bungalow located in a magnificent semi rural setting with large gardens and an adjoining paddock. The current owners have undertaken a number of significant improvements and modifications since purchasing the property in 2008 to include the conversion of the first floor to three generous bedrooms and a shower room. The ground floor comprises an entrance hallway with cloakroom, a spacious dining room opening to a double aspect sitting room, a re-fitted kitchen/breakfast room and double glazed conservatory. A door from the hallway opens into a 20'7 master bedroom with en suite shower room. Externally the bungalow stands amid established, south west facing gardens which extend to 0.25 acre being predominantly laid to lawn and screened by an attractive beech hedge. There is a thriving vegetable garden, a variety of established trees with stock fencing to the boundary. A gate from the rear garden opens into the stable yard with three stables and a useful field shelter, allowing direct access into the paddock which lies to the south side of the property. A large gravel driveway to the front provides ample parking a turning space.
