Alkham Valley Road, Drellingore, Alkham, CT18 - £575,000

Over the years the current owners have occupied this substantial detached bungalow, the property has been extensively refurbished, remodelled and thoughtfully extended. The result is exceptional, a true bungalow offering thoughtfully designed accommodation which is of particularly comfortable proportions and is beautifully presented throughout. This includes an entrance hall leading to the generous sitting room with cosy wood burning stove and a pleasing outlook over the pretty gardens, beyond this is the garden room, spanning the width of the property is the smartly fitted, open plan kitchen/dining room and utility room. There are three bedrooms, the principal bedroom with walk-in wardrobe and en-suite shower room.

The property occupies a generous plot of a little over quarter of an acre and is surrounded by delightfully secluded gardens to three sides with wide expanses of lawn, beautifully planted borders and various areas in which to relax and dine alfresco including a generous terrace before the recently constructed studio. The studio is a real asset to the property, it is used by the current owners as an artist/potting studio but would make an excellent gym or home office as it is already equipped with a water supply and power. Also within the garden is a potting shed, greenhouse, well tended vegetable garden and a detached double garage with adjoining workshop. There is also ample parking.

For room sizes please refer to the floor plan. EPC rating band C.
