A delightful detached family bungalow, with potential, in a secluded setting of approximately 3.6 acres in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. 4/5 Bedrooms 2/3 Reception rooms Kitchen/Breakfast room Family Room Dining room Utility room 3 Bathrooms The Grotto is an impressive 4/5-bedroom bungalow, with generously proportioned rooms, set in beautiful grounds surrounded by mature woodlands. The home is decorated in a neutral and light palette throughout. There is a large reception hall leading to a range of reception rooms and bedrooms. The spacious dual aspect sitting room has a large bay window overlooking the garden with a classically styled feature fire place, double glass doors leading to the family room/bedroom with another bay window, all doors open out onto the mature, established gardens. The open plan kitchen/breakfast room has a wide range of built in units, and a traditional, large AGA built into the exposed brick chimney breast giving a very homely feel. The dining room is a more formal setting, ideal for entertaining with glass French doors leading to the outside. There are currently four well-proportioned bedrooms, two with storage/dressing rooms and en suites, whilst a family bathroom serves the other bedrooms. All four bedrooms have doors that open out onto the gardens. Planning permission was previously granted for a replacement dwelling of approximately 6,000sq ft; this has since lapsed but has been resubmitted. The property is extremely private and is set back from the road in a plot of approximately 3.6 acres including lawns, woodlands and a currently disused tennis court which has great potential. It is approached via a 150 metre gravelled driveway, lined with mature rhododendrons, which are a real feature when in bloom. There are also a double and single garage respectively, which are positioned at the end of the driveway and provide sheltered space for vehicles or storage. The extensive wrap around lawn creates a feeling of space and tranquillity in the grounds of the property, with many established trees and surrounding woodland providing shelter and interest. There is a characterful stone wall and shrine alcoves.
