A well presented and deceptively spacious family home with exceptional views. Including grazing land and stables with the full site extending to 2.08Ha (5.13Ac). Situated in a desirable village location.
The Property Whitegates is a well presented and deceptively spacious detached dormer bungalow which is available with the additional benefit of land, stabling and an outdoor arena, ideally suited to those with agricultural or equestrian interests. The full site extends to 2.08Ha (5.13Ac).
The main entrance leads into the reception hallway. Double doors and steps down lead into the living room, which is light and airy courtesy of the dual aspect and large picture window overlooking the gardens and superb countryside beyond.
The kitchen is fitted with a modern range of high gloss units, topped with white granite worksurfaces which incorporate a stainless steel sink with mixer tap and draining board which extends into the worktop. High specification integral appliances include an electric hob with extractor over, eye level oven, microwave and fridge/freezer. Spotlights are recessed within the ceiling with pin hole lights set within the kick boards adding a detailed luxury, while the floor is laid with wooden effect laminate.
The family bathroom is at ground floor level, fully tiled and fitted with a modern white suite comprising low level WC with concealed cistern, bowl wash hand basin set upon a floating vanity unit, double ended bath and quadrant shower cubicle with mains fed shower. The room is complemented by a chrome heated towel rail.
The utility room provides space, power and plumbing for white goods and houses the gas fired combination boiler, while the studio/study is accessed from here. Formerly the integral garage to the property, the studio/study could be utilised for a number of purposes and benefits from a UPVC door providing external access to the driveway.
The dining room completes the ground floor accommodation and is a versatile room which could be utilised as a further bedroom if required though enjoys comfortable proportions accommodating a suite of dining room furniture.
Stairs from the reception hallway rise to the first floor landing. To the right hand side lies the master bedroom, which is a large double featuring a range of fitted wardrobes and storage within the eaves.
The second bedroom is another spacious double room featuring a range of fitted wardrobes and dressing table, as well as a shower cubicle and wash hand basin set within a vanity unit.
The third bedroom is a good sized single and is well lit via a Velux skylight.
The first floor accommodation is completed by a separate WC and wash hand basin.
To the front of the property, there is a tarmacadam driveway providing ample off road parking. The extensive lawned gardens extend to the side and rear of the property, bordered by mature hedgerow and planted borders and incorporate a water feature and orchard with a variety of productive fruit trees with stunning open views enjoyed from almost every aspect. The adjoining grassland can be accessed from the garden, as well as from the village green, and is divided into two manageable paddocks. The stone built stables comprises three loose boxes with a useful store area and adjoining workshop, while the arena is floodlit with a sand and rubber surface.
