A detached bungalow with two double-bedrooms, a conservatory, garage and enclosed rear garden, in a quiet position in the sought-after village of Highweek.

A paved driveway provides parking for at least two cars beside the beautifully landscaped front garden with its decorative paved patios surrounded by an expanse of decorative gravel and bordered by log-edged beds well-stocked with plants and shrubs and shallow steps lead to the entrance porch at the side of the property.

Inside, it is well-presented and feels warm with gas central heating and double glazing throughout. The decor is a little dated and would benefit from some modernisation.

The entrance hallway is carpeted and has papered walls with an airing cupboard that has slatted shelving for linen and a hatch in the ceiling leads to the loft space where there is a drop-down ladder and a light for ease of access and is part-boarded providing plentiful storage space.

The kitchen has an oak floor and is a decent size with beautiful, solid-granite worktops, mosaic-tiled walls and a range of solid-oak fronted fitted units with matching wall-cabinets, providing ample cupboard space, complete with under-cabinet feature lighting. There is a built-in double-oven, a separate induction hob with an integral extractor hood above, a recess for an upright fridge/freezer and an integrated washing machine beneath a one and a half-bowl inset sink with a drainer carved into the granite worktop. A wall-mounted condensing combi-boiler is hidden within a wall-cabinet, providing the heating and hot water on demand. The living room is spacious and feels warm with carpet underfoot and has plenty of light from dual-aspect windows, the wide, south-facing front window having views over rooftops to the countryside beyond. An attractive stone fireplace is fitted with a living-flame gas fire, making a nice feature and focal point for the room.

The master bedroom is a roomy and light double with a window to the rear garden and the second bedroom, another good double, is currently used as a dining room with plenty of room for six around a table, perfect for any occasion. Sliding patio doors lead into a conservatory, a versatile room which has an oak floor and central heating allowing continued use all year round and has doors on either side providing access to the garden, both with inset hessian doormats.

A shower room has a non-slip vinyl floor and part-tiled, part-panelled walls in a marble-effect and contains a large modern shower enclosure, a pedestal basin and a WC in cream.

Outside, the rear garden is low-maintenance with a terrace of hard-standing and paving, making a great space for alfresco dining or a barbecue. There is a greenhouse with power, for the tomato plants and bedding plants and a rainwater-harvesting system for the watering, saves on the water bill. A walled bed runs down rear of the property planted with shrubs and bushes and a door leads into the side of the detached garage which is surprisingly long and has lights, power and a remote-controlled roller-shutter door. The garden is fully-enclosed making it safe for children and pets and paths lead down either side of the property where there are gates to the front, providing alternative access and there is an outside tap, beside the garage, for convenience.
