4 Bedroom Detached Bungalow Sold STC

Benefitting from a non-estate location and approached by a quiet village lane, Cowslip Cottage really enjoys the best of both worlds. It is an extremely spacious, modern detached bungalow yet gifts a tranquil, quiet village location within walking distance to the renowned Saham Mere - where its name partly originates.

Clayland Homes, a highly acclaimed local developer constructed the home approximately seven-and-a-half years ago, which means there are two-and-a-half years left on the new home building guarantee. This home also boasts being sold with no onward chain.

Enjoying a traditional Clayland facade, built using a mixture of bricks and flint, the property sits underneath a pan tile roof and is nicely finished with an oak-support cart lodge. This all promotes an executive feel to the home.

Entering onto a block weave driveway is done so via a shared entrance with one neighbouring property. The joint owners ensure the upkeep of the driveway, any regular maintenance and keeping an attractive curb appeal. There is ample parking at the home to suit a family or perfect for having guests come to stay. In addition too, there is an attached covered oak framed cart lodge and generous adjoining single garage which has been partly extended to the rear creating an existing workshop. However, with very little work this space could be utilised into an office as it is fitted with dual aspect double-glazed windows and a single door out onto the rear garden.
The total square footage extends to approximately 2,101 sq. ft. providing spacious and well-appointed accommodation. You enter into a light airy and spacious hallway, benefiting from a full height window to the left of the door. Furthermore, there is also a storage cupboard and a door leading into the fabulous open plan living space with featured vaulted ceilings.

This area houses the open plan kitchen/dining space and this really is the heart of the home with enough scope to suit any prospective buyer. The kitchen has a range of fitted units, including tall larder cupboards, complemented by an array of built-in appliances - including a double wall-mounted oven, ceramic hob and extractor , wine cooler, integral dishwasher and fridge/freezer. The dining space is suitable to house a large dining table but could easily be incorporated into a sitting area to enjoy next to the patio doors, leading out to the rear garden.

A dual set of glazed internal door lead into the sitting room, which is another impressive living space with featured vaulted ceiling, windows to the rear and side aspect and houses a central inset fireplace, housing a wood burning stove.

All four bedrooms are highly versatile and, depending on the buyer, could serve a number of different uses.

The main bedroom, along with bedroom two have fitted en-suite shower rooms and built-in storage. The remaining two bedrooms are both suitable to house a double bed and share the use of the family bathroom. Bedroom four is currently doubled-up as a study.

The gardens provide different areas to enjoy, there's potential of utilising the unused parcel of land to the front into the rear and side garden. This space offers a good degree of privacy with established trees running along the front boundary.

The rear garden is laid to lawn with a patio immediately at your feet upon entry from the lounge patio doors. From the utility doorway you have direct access to a shingled side garden, ideal for hanging the washing out but could be utilised into an additional patio. Furthermore, there is a fitted greenhouse and established trees and shrubs around the garden.
