Cedar Lodge really does have the very best of both worlds when it comes to location; it is literally only a few minutes from the town and Pilgrim Hospital, yet enjoys a rural position with open fields all around. This beautiful, spacious bungalow is offered with no onward chain and sits way back from the road upon a large plot of approximately ¾ acre subject to survey. It has a long driveway and generous parking area to one side, and extensive lawned gardens to the front and side with a wide variety of trees, shrubs and bushes adding shape and structure all year round.
As you can see from the photographs, the bungalow is absolutely lovely and has been fitted to an incredibly high standard throughout. The oak kitchen has solid granite worktops and integral appliances with a built in window seat and a double larder cupboard with light and shelving. The kitchen is open-plan to the dining / family room creating a 'living kitchen' which is a design feature that is increasingly popular for families, indeed, the family spend most of their time in this area.
The quality Karndean flooring in the utility room, kitchen, bathroom and dining room looks fabulous as well as being practical, and as the owners have a flooring business, you can rest assured that the carpets are of an equally high quality throughout, with the carpet in the hallway being my absolute favourite. Oak and glass bi-fold doors off the dining room can even open up the area to the rest of the bungalow, which is ideal when entertaining and creates a contemporary feel to this established property. The spacious hallway has four double bedrooms off as well as a study and a lovely modern bathroom with walk-in shower, twin washbasins and a separate bath.
There are a range of useful outbuildings for anyone needing extra storage to include two single garages, a large cabin divided into two separate rooms and an L shaped timber framed annexe or studio which is currently laid out as a bar with a swim spa off. While the pool will be completely removed, this space would be ideal for anyone working from home or as a studio for exercising and other hobbies.
