Available with no onward chain, this three-bedroom detached bungalow in the popular village of Alpington has been extended and improved to provide generous flexible accommodation on one level.
This delightful bungalow is located in an established residential cul-de-sac set back from the road behind a wooden picket fence. The low maintenance front garden is accessed via a brick weave driveway which provides parking for three vehicles, and which gives access to the generously proportioned single garage which has previously been used for caravan storage.
Walking through the small entrance porch and opening the front door, you are greeted by a welcoming entrance hall, from which all the principal rooms may be accessed. Directly to your left is a bright and airy living room which benefits from a large south facing window – letting in lots of natural light all year round. The property has oil fired central heating throughout and this living room is granted additional warmth thanks to a cast iron open fireplace which provides the perfect focal point in the winter.
This bungalow has three double bedrooms, one to the front of the property, and two to the rear. The two bedrooms to the rear of the property have been extended, to create ample accommodation with plenty of space for storage. The great thing about bungalows is the flexibility of layout they provide, and one of these bedrooms has been used as a dining/sitting room by the previous owner, enjoying plentiful views across the rear garden thanks to its dual aspect outlook.
Walk along the entrance hall past the family bathroom, and to the rear of the property is a well-proportioned kitchen/dining room, with ample space for a large dining table and a comprehensive range of fitted units. The Rangemaster oven, which suits the kitchen perfectly, is included in the sale. Leading off the kitchen, a utility room provides a dedicated space for laundry and gives access onto the rear garden, whilst a convenient cloakroom completes the accommodation.
The rear garden is a tranquil and private space, with a central lawn surrounded by well-stocked borders and containing a pond, two seating areas to catch the sun at different times of day, timber sheds and a summerhouse which is perfectly positioned to benefit from the evening sun in this peaceful village setting.
Alpington is located about 7 miles south of Norwich, and benefits from a post office and farm shop, OFSTED Outstanding primary school, church and public house, with further amenities located in the nearby village of Poringland, including a library, medical centre and supermarket. The village is well located, with easy access to the A146 for journeys by car into Norwich, or south towards Beccles and on to the coast.
