Offering a rural lifestyle in the picturesque village of Broughton and set amongst breath-taking scenery, this spacious three-bedroom detached bungalow enjoys a truly idyllic and tranquil setting. It further boasts two reception rooms, a secluded study/fourth bedroom, manicured gardens, and extensive parking options. The family home has been well cared for over the years, enjoying a traditional style throughout that new owners may wish to modernise to add their own stamp to a characterful property.
The bungalow provides an inviting first impression with its desirable frontage and attractive kerb appeal. Inside, the front door opens to a foyer for shoes and then a T-shaped hall, which incorporates built-in storage and a handy WC. To the left, down a small set of stairs, is the generous living room. This reception area is ideal for everyday living, whether unwinding or socialising; it allows a versatile selection of comfortable lounge furniture and offers a charming open coal fire as a focal point for arranging the room. It also features dual-aspect glazing, seeing lots of natural light and lovely garden views, framed by patio doors to outside. The neighbouring dining room caters to formal dinner parties, housing a table for 6+ people; it is brightly lit too, with natural light pouring down from two skylights clad in timber panelling – a charming feature, which matches a decorative spot-lit recess. Conveniently, the dining kitchen is next door, providing a spacious area for more relaxed family meals and breakfasting. It comes well-equipped with timber-style cabinets, which are paired with generous marble-style worktops. Freestanding appliances include: a fridge, washer, and dryer, with space for an electric cooker, freezer, and dishwasher. Connecting to the kitchen, an entry offers a place for muddy boots, a deep storage cupboard, and garden access. The study, meanwhile, is a sizeable, secluded space, handily fitted with shelving, and has the potential to be used as a fourth bedroom. Located throughout the property are three spacious double bedrooms that enjoy an airy ambience, two of which also benefit from built-in wardrobes/storage. A bright three-piece bathroom completes the home. Double glazed windows and oil central heating ensure year round comfort and efficiency.
Outside, a lovely manicured garden is laid to lawn, fringed by established leafy greens for outstanding privacy, whilst a long driveway and a detached single garage provide extensive parking.
