A rare opportunity to purchase this skilfully extended substantial four-bedroom detached bungalow set within a peaceful rural setting. A multi-functional and rural property with an extensive commercial range of buildings set within approximately 3.1 acres of land.

In summary, the bungalow offers 2,000 square foot of internal living accommodation, three insulated polytunnels, three paddocks, stables, hay store and a large agricultural building.

The Laurels was purchased by the present owners in early 2009 as a tired bungalow, built in 1999. Since then they have undertaken a comprehensive programme of renovation and refurbishment which has seen the house significantly extended, reconfigured and the entire building refurbished. In 2012, full planning permission was granted for an extensive single storey extension adjoining the side elevation to form a spacious lounge seating area, master bedroom, orangery and storage cupboard. The present owners have carefully focused on an extensive and sympathetic restoration of the property, having many impressive features blending modern and characterful living.

The property is enhanced by a contemporary kitchen, having a central island and a range of fitted wall and base units to three sides. There are a number of integrated appliances including a ceramic hob, double oven and recess for washing facilities and fridge freezer. Located off the kitchen is a useful downsize cloakroom w.c and side entrance door.

The first reception room has a beautiful exposed brick fireplace with wood burning stove. A pair of french doors lead out to the rear garden and space to accommodate appropriate dining room furniture. Furthermore, there are three bedrooms, all double in size and benefit from a double-glazed casement window and central heating radiator. Of particular note, bedroom two has built in wardrobes accessed by a sliding door. There is a modern house bathroom comprising an inset bath, walk in shower, pedestal hand wash basin and low flush.

The second reception room, master bedroom and orangery all form part of the extension and create wonderful open living. The second reception room has impressive Bi-Folding doors adjoining the rear elevation which provide stunning views across the paddocks. In addition, there is another beautiful wood burning stove set within an exposed brick surround. A good-sized cupboard provides useful space for storage.

Located off the second reception room is the master bedroom having a walk-in wardrobe and stunning en suite. A pair of french doors lead to the front of the property and beyond.

The orangery is without doubt the hub of the home enjoying an abundance of natural light from surrounding double glazed windows. The orangery is positioned perfectly to enjoy the sun all day and is often used by the present owners as the reading and relaxing room.

To the outside, the property will be accessed off the main road along a private driveway to the rear where the property will be found. A large gravelled area provides off street parking for numerous motor vehicles and space for two detached kennels.

The land currently measures approximately 3.1 acres and is divided into three paddocks with surrounding electric fencing. In 2010 planning consent was passed for the erection of detached stables and hay barn. The three separate stables measure, 12 x12 , 12 x12 , 12 x10 and a tack room 12 x5 . The hay store measures 12 x24 . The stables have a solid concrete base and door to access each room.

There are three established Polytunnels which we understand to have been built in approximately 2005 as a registered residential small holding. All three polytunnels are insulated, excellent for storage or business related and can also lend itself to become multipurpose depending on the individual s requirements. . Details of the registration number can be provided upon request.

A number of established trees are lined to the north elevation and provide a screen of privacy for the bungalow and land. The land is predominantly laid to lawn, consists of level pastureland and enclosed to all three sides. There is an adjoining orchard and greenhouse included within the sale. Additionally, there is a large agricultural outbuilding which is currently being used for mechanical motor storage.

The Laurels provides one of these increasingly rare opportunities to purchase such a beautiful home with associated land and potential business use. It is therefore as the acting agents, we strongly advise an inspection at the earliest opportunity. Viewings are strictly by appointment only.
