Property description

Our clients have lovingly remodelled and extended this detached bungalow leaving behind a beautiful contemporary bungalow packed full of everything you could possibly want. The modern, bright and airy kitchen with its utility room sits off the spacious, comfortable lounge, the master bedroom suite with its own shower room is complimented by two further double bedrooms and a stylish modern bathroom. Outside the glorious gardens are ready to be enjoyed and the pristine driveway leading to the attached garage makes parking a pleasure. But best of all the property is chain free meaning you could be the proud new owners sooner than you think.

Superb Living Space
Refurbished and extended by our clients the living space has been creatively reconfigured to bring a contemporary feel to the bungalow, which is both extremely practical but refreshingly comfortable. The side entrance door leads from the driveway into an attractive hall with laminate wood flooring. Off the hallway sits the spacious lounge with a feature fireplace housing a living flame gas fire, glazed bi-fold doors separate the lounge from the newly installed dining kitchen allowing easy access or the ability to close off the space when required. The contemporary fitted kitchen has an array of white units with attractive worksurfaces and features a single drainer sink unit with swan neck mixer tap, an induction hob/electric oven with concealed extractor hood and a dishwasher. A window looks out over the rear garden and French doors open onto the garden offering a great connection with outside. Off the kitchen there is a utility room, with plumbing for a washing machine, which houses the new gas central heating boiler.

Bedrooms and Bathrooms
The comfortable master bedroom has a range of fitted wardrobes and a door leads to its own en-suite shower room with tiled floor featuring a new suite comprising a shower cubicle, low level wc, a contemporary wash basin with mixer tap housed in a vanity unit and a chrome ladder style radiator. The other two bedrooms, which can both accommodate double beds are at the front of the bungalow and offer the flexibility to be used for other purposes such as an office or formal dining room etc. The main bathroom which has been recently installed has a simple but stylish white suite comprising a panelled bath with mixer tap, pedestal wash basin with mixer tap, low level wc and a tiled floor.

Glorious Gardens
Situated as it is on a corner plot the gardens literally wrap themselves around the bungalow. The front and side garden are laid to lawn with flower borders and mature ornamental trees enclosed by a well manicured hedge. A side gate leads past the greenhouse and vegetable plot to the lovely rear garden with its own lawn and flower borders backed by a variety of mature shrubs and plants. A dedicated seating area to one corner of the garden offers a perfect place to sit or even dine. Enough about the garden where are you going to park the car, well the good news is that a recently laid driveway can comfortably accommodate two vehicles and leads to the attached single garage with an up and over door.

On Your Doorstep
Albany Drive sits in one of the most popular traditional residential areas of Walton-Le-Dale with a lovely mix of houses and bungalows. A local bus service passes right by the property and a short walk takes you to a small parade of shops with a convenience store providing all the last minute essentials you may need. For the more energetic and/or dog owners there are woodland walks only a minute or so away meaning you can stretch those legs whenever you want.
