The Spinney is an especially well-presented bungalow, believed to have been built Circa 1978. The property has since been refurbished by the current owners to an excellent standard of specification and finish throughout and sits centrally within large private gardens, adjoining open countryside over which the property enjoys views.
A recessed entrance gives way to imposing double doors opening into a welcoming reception hall, with a vaulted ceiling and American light-oak flooring with access to a cloakroom. Double doors lead into the principal reception room, featuring a hole in the wall gas fireplace and pleasing double aspects.
The hub of the house is the kitchen, fitted with a range of bespoke cabinets under granite worksurfaces with a comprehensive range
of quality integral appliances, twin “Franke” sinks and ceramic tiled flooring throughout. The kitchen offers space for a breakfast table and enjoys wonderful views, and an adjoining fitted utility room has plumbing and space for laundry appliances. Conveniently positioned adjoining the kitchen is a well-proportioned dining room also featuring American light-oak flooring. A further reception room, adjoins the kitchen offering family reception space, also benefiting from rural views through French doors, which lead to
the side courtyard.
The bungalow has been well-though out with the bedroom accommodation being located within the eastern wing of the house, providing separation from the living accommodation. All
four bedrooms are double rooms, the majority having bespoke built-in furniture, and all have delightful views to the gardens or adjoining fields. The master bedroom is particularly noteworthy,
of superb size, fitted with bespoke bedroom furniture, along with a walk-in wardrobe and a luxurious en suite shower room fitted with a thermostatic tower shower, vanity sink unit, WC, chrome heated towel radiator and is fully tiled warmed by under-floor heating.
Along the hallway is an equally lavish family bathroom with contemporary sanitaryware, including a “Airbath” bath, thermostatic shower cubicle, sink, WC, and a chrome heated towel
radiator. There are also two sizeable linen stores and a separate WC.
A gated entrance opens onto an extensive gravel driveway, providing parking for numerous vehicles, ideal for those with boat or caravan parking requirements, which in-turn gives access to a double garage with remote door.
