In an elevated position, in the popular village of Sleights, you will find this wonderful 2 bedroom, detached bungalow which overlooks the surrounding rolling countryside. Having been well maintained by the current owners this is a nicely presented property which is deceptively spacious. Externally, gardens wrap around the building and a generous driveway offers all-important off-street parking for 2 vehicles.
The accommodation is made up of an entrance hall with a useful, recessed cupboard ideal for storing coats and shoes, a light lounge of good proportions, a bathroom with a modern white suite and a kitchen with light Oak base units and wall cupboards, space for an oven and fridge/freezer and space/plumbing for an automatic washing machine. Also, 2 double bedrooms - one overlooking the rear garden and the other positioned to the side of the property. Both bedrooms have handy built-in wardrobes.
The property is heated, and hot water is provided, by a 'Ferroli' gas combination boiler which is housed within a cupboard to the kitchen. There is a living flame coal-effect fire to the lounge and good quality double glazing to the windows.
Outside you will find a low maintenance front garden with a pebbled area, a raised patio and stone pathway leading to the front door. Irons gates open onto the driveway which offers ample space for 2 vehicles and this whole front garden/driveway is enclosed by hedges, stone walls and iron railings. Pathways run up both sides of the bungalow and lead to the rear garden which is another easy-to-maintain space with flower borders and mature shrubs - all made private by tall hedges and wooden fences. There is a wooden storage shed to the right hand side of the building.
The present owners have had a program of improvements carried out to the property including re-wiring, re-plumbing, installing a gas central heating system and new internal and external doors. A lovely feature, worth noting, is the Portugese Limestone fireplace to the lounge - where small fossils are gradually being exposed through the natural Limestone.
