An attractive detached dormer bungalow situated in a picturesque location within this desirable Polden Hills village. No onward chain.

An individually designed detached dormer bungalow nestled in an idyllic location, within the heart of the village of Shapwick. The property we believe, dates back to the 1960's and although would now benefit from some cosmetic updating, offers spacious and flexible accommodation with some lovely features including; parquet flooring, high ceilings, beautiful windows and solid oak staircase. Sat on a plot extending to just under 0.6 acres and offered for sale with No Onward Chain.

The accommodation is arranged over two floors and briefly comprises; an entrance door opens into a welcoming entrance hall with staircase rising to the first floor and doors leading into the ground floor rooms and WC, along with a useful storage cupboard and airing cupboard. The lounge is a beautiful double aspect room with high ceiling and picture window with views over the garden. The lounge further opens into a dining room and conservatory. The conservatory takes full advantage of the pretty gardens. The kitchen is well fitted but would benefit from updating and in addition, there is a useful utility room. Also on the ground floor is a family bathroom with 4 piece suite, along with three double bedrooms, one with an ensuite shower.

On the first floor there is a further double bedroom and bathroom, along with substantial eaves storage which in part, could potentially be converted to provide additional accommodation, subject to planning and building regulations.

Outside, the gardens of the property are a particular feature. To the front there is an extensive driveway providing parking and turning for several vehicles and leading to a double garage with two up and over doors, power and light. The front garden is laid to lawn with mature shrubs and trees with low stone wall boundary and five bar gate. To the rear and leading from the conservatory is a patio area, ideal for alfresco dining and summer entertaining. The remainder of the garden is laid to lawn and interspersed with an abundance of plants, shrubs and trees. Areas of the garden would also provide an ideal space for a vegetable plot. With open outlook over fields, the garden offers a good degree of privacy and seclusion.

An early viewing is essential to fully appreciate this lovely property in a pretty village setting.
