Guide price

Bedrooms: 3
A rare and exciting opportunity to acquire this skilfully extended bungalow with flexible living accommodation, complemented by a range of outbuildings or kennels and set within approx. 1.14 acre plot.

Muncaster Lodge is a fine example of an immaculate detached family residence with further scope for expansion into the already converted loft space. The property is tucked away on the fringes of Allerton Bywater in a beautiful and peaceful countryside setting. Well known and popular nature reserves RSPB St Aidans and RSPB Fairburn are both within close proximity as well as numerous dog walking routes.

Muncaster Lodge was purchased by the present owners in 1999 as a tired 2 bedroom bungalow built we understand in the early 1900 s. Since then they have undertaken a comprehensive programme of renovation and refurbishment which has seen the property significantly extended, reconfigured and the entire building refurbished, landscaped and an extension to the stables. In summary the works include two, single storey extensions, a new gas central heating system, new kitchen, and bathrooms including an en-suite to the main bedroom.

On entering the property, a front door leads into an entrance lobby having a good size cupboard for storage. The present owners have converted both loft areas which have sufficient space to accommodate more bedrooms or a home office. The floors have been boarded and the walls plastered and made ready for decorating. As previously noted within these particulars, currently access is via a fixed pull down ladder and for this to be incorporated into the accommodation, it would be subject to a structured staircase which is building control compliant and their approval.

To the left hand side of the property is a spacious lounge which forms part of a garage conversion done approximately 15 years ago by the present owners. There is a double glazed window to the front elevation and a pair of French doors to the rear which lead onto the patio area and beyond. There is a gas fire on a marble hearth and solid oak surround fireplace.

The kitchen diner is without doubt the hub of the home and enjoys a beautiful range of wall and base units to two sides incorporating a 5 ring gas hob with electric oven below and extractor hood over. There is space for freestanding white goods and plumbing is in place for an automatic washing machine. A feature exposed brick archway separates the kitchen and dining room which has space for appropriate dining furniture. Uninterrupted countryside views are enjoyed across the garden via French doors which have a full height fixed pane to either side.

A door from the dining room leads to the secondary hallway having access to the bedrooms, house bathroom and second sitting room.

The principal bedroom is located to the front of the property and is complemented by a stunning en-suite. Contrasting dark grey and white sanitary and full height tiling and flooring provide an elegant, raised bathroom under a range of fitted spotlights. There is an inset bath, large walk in shower, vanity hand wash basin, low flush w.c and chrome heated towel rail. Of particular note, there is a purpose-built walk-in wardrobe between the bedroom and en-suite.

There are a further two bedrooms, both of which are double in size and all benefit from a double glazed casement window and central heating radiator. Bedroom three has the second loft access via a pull down ladder.

The family room provides a cosy yet spacious room having a gas fire. This room has the ability to lend itself as a home office, snug or fourth bedroom, depending on the individuals requirements. The internal accommodation is completed by another stunning bathroom, upgraded simultaneously with the master en suite. Following a similar design, there is grey and white sanitary wear with contrasting flooring and full height tiled surround.

Externally the property will be found off Ninevah Lane, a private lane that has no through traffic other than local residents. To the front there are double cast iron metal gates which open onto a gravelled driveway with off street parking for numerous motor vehicles. A private front garden is laid to lawn with brick boundaries and a range of established trees providing a vast degree of privacy. The garden then wraps around the house and opens out to a large garden, in total approx. 1.14 acres. Part of the land has been divided and fenced with timber pillars and Harrison fencing. The previous owners have used this area for the training of dogs.

The patio to the rear extends the full width of the property and is positioned directly south to enjoy the sun all day and into the evening. The area also has the scope and potential for further expansion subject to approval. The garden is not overlooked and provides peaceful countryside views within a private setting.

The stables have historically been used as kennelling and in total have the ability to accommodate 17 kennels. The stables are built of breezeblock construction, concrete flooring and have power and lighting connections. The present owners have extended the stables south of the existing stables with a courtyard in between. Within the courtyard there is surface water drainage.

This much loved and cared for family home has provided many lasting memories and provides one of those increasingly rare opportunities to acquire such a generously sized home positioned centrally within approx. 1.14 acres. As the acting agents, we strongly advise an early inspection. All viewings are strictly via appointment only.

Although these particulars are thought to be materially correct their accuracy cannot be guaranteed and they do not form part of any contract.
