Property Description

A traditional pre-war a handsome red sandstone fronted Detached “Dormer” Bungalow, with an impressive standard of finish, located in the Switchback district.

This house type is noted for its hall - a noticeably larger hall than typical and featuring wood panelling and making for a really lovely first impression.

  • 4 Bedrooms
  • 2 Public Rooms
  • Large Conservatory
  • Quality Kitchen (extended)
  • Bathroom
  • Additional four-piece Ensuite Bathroom
  • Double glazing
  • Gas central heating
  • Roof retiled
  • Particularly large tandem garage

This house type was specifically designed as a Dormer Bungalow with accommodation on ground and first floors. As noted earlier its large wood panelled hall sets it apart from others and really contributes to an immediate sense of space. Key rooms are well proportioned including the lounge and dining room and particularly the main bedroom with its impressive four-piece (includes a shower enclosure) ensuite bathroom. The subjects, as clients will see from our photographs, are very well equipped and boast a high standard of finish. Hammond's bedroom furniture is fitted to bedrooms one and three with a suite of bedroom furniture, by Strachan, to bedroom 2. The extended modern kitchen is excellent and features gorgeous marble/granite work tops and an array of quality appliances, mostly by Miele. The sanitary ware is also of a very high standard with both bathrooms being fully tiled.

The original roof tiles have been replaced and windows now feature uPVC double glazed units, the exception being the two, timber framed, Velux’s and the two original single glazed stained leaded lancet windows in the lounge inglenook fireplace. Central heating is mains gas where in 2018 the boiler was renewed with a Worcester Greenstar 34 CDi Classic ErP condensing combination boiler.

Outside, the house sits on a level garden which is south facing at the rear and where, at the end of a monobloc driveway, is a particularly large double tandem garage with electric garage door.

The house has an alarm system.

It is evident that the property has had much investment over the years and has been looked after. It is now time for the next owner to enjoy the house.
