Property description

Where do we start with this detached dormer bungalow. We think you will want to view because of the large south facing rear garden, or maybe the extended accommodation which make this a really flexible family home or it could just be because it's located in one of the most popular residential areas of Walton-Le-Dale. Whatever it is, take a look.....


The ground floor


The entrance at the side of the home leads into a hall with a staircase leading up to the first floor. The comfortable and cosy lounge has a feature fireplace, perfect for those winter evenings and a sliding patio door opens into the garden room. The fitted kitchen is a good size with oak cupboards and built-in appliances including an oven/hob, fridge and dishwasher, plus the understairs cupboard has plumbing for a washing machine. The garden room can also be accessed via the kitchen through a patio door and is a lovely place to sit and enjoy the fantastic garden. At the front of the bungalow there is a double bedroom with modern fitted wardrobes, a good size dining room (which could be used as a further bedroom) and a fully tiled bathroom with a 3 piece suite and over bath shower.


The first floor


Upstairs a small landing leads to an open study area with a large picture window providing loads of natural light which is ideal as a home office or just somewhere to sit and read. This in turn leads to the large master bedroom with an impressive pine panelled vaulted ceiling and fitted wardrobes. At the rear there is another bedroom with built in wardrobes and views over the garden. There is also a compact shower room with shower cubicle, wash basin and wc.


The south facing gardens


The impressive rear garden gets sun throughout the day and being south facing you can really make the most of any good weather. The landscaped garden features lawned areas and a number of paved patios interspersed with shrub borders and ornamental trees. The garden also has outdoor lighting so you can carry on enjoying it through into the evening. All in all a great garden for gardeners and families alike.


Garage & parking


An important feature of any property is the space to park and this bungalow has a great driveway, which can easily accommodate a number of vehicles plus a good size garage at the end of the drive.
