A 4 bedroom detached bungalow with land in a delightfully secluded location in the sought- after private estate of Domewood. The property stands within a plot of 0.9 acres (tbv) and is approached via a 5-bar gate and a long driveway to the garage and with off-road parking for 4-6 cars. It offers an ideal opportunity to upgrade and modernise the existing property or to create a significantly larger family home (STPP).


Entering the bungalow, there is a solid wood front door opening into the spacious hallway with attractive parquet flooring which flows through into the open plan lounge/diner. The lounge area has a stunning floor to ceiling picture window overlooking the front garden and another window to the rear making it an incredibly light and airy space. There is an open fire with a stone clad chimney breast to one side and, walking through to the other side, leads into the dining area. Here there is a large window to the front of the property from which to enjoy the outlook across the front garden with its trees, shrubs and well-stocked flower borders.

Beyond is the kitchen and, again, this is dual aspect together with a utility room which has a window to the front and a door providing access to the rear garden. There is the potential to re-configure these rooms to create a larger open plan space and to incorporate a full refurbishment of the kitchen.

Returning to the hall, to the front is the master bedroom which is very generously proportioned and currently with a king size bed. There is a picture window overlooking the front garden together with built-in wardrobes across one wall providing really useful storage. Bedroom 2 is adjacent to this and has similar proportions, this time with a large window overlooking the rear garden and is presently used as a family room. There is a room beyond which could be used as an office for those working from home or as a study area for homework for younger children or teenagers according to individual requirements.

There is a wet room which has been refurbished to a high standard and now has large, glossy floor tiles and full height wall tiles in mid-grey providing an effective contrast to the white suite. There is a large walk-in shower, WC and contemporary rectangular wash hand basin and vanity unit below with two deep drawers. There is a feature, inset tiled shelf providing additional storage space, ceiling spotlights and a chrome ladder style radiator.

A corridor leads to bedrooms 3 and 4 with a large picture window and patio door on the left. This opens directly onto the terrace in the rear garden which runs across the full width of the property. The family bathroom is also to the left and, again, has been refurbished to a high standard with glossy floor tiles and full height wall tiles in mid grey. There is a walk-in shower, a white WC and a really stylish twin wash hand basin and vanity unit below with two deep drawers. It has ceiling spotlights and a chrome ladder style radiator.

Bedrooms 3 and 4 are both a similar size and each is a well-proportioned double. Bedroom 3 has a wardrobe with hanging rail and shelving across one wall. Bedroom 4 has a built-in cupboard also with a hanging rail and shelving. There is a delightful view of the apple trees in the rear garden which look beautiful in the spring with blossom.

The current layout of the property offers deceptively spacious accommodation together with the option to upgrade and/or re-configure given the planning permission submitted. The excellent planting and established trees create a park-like garden in this secluded location making it a lovely home together with further potential.

Outside:

The property is approached via a 5-bar gate opening into a long driveway with off-road parking for 4-6 cars. There is land of 0.9 acres (tbv) with a wraparound rear garden together with a gracious front garden with established hedging and shrubs along the boundaries. There is a large flower bed in the front garden providing an impressive display of colour in the spring and summer and a wide swathe of land with further trees and shrubs to one side and connecting with the rear garden. Here there are pink and also red camellias together with primroses and spring bulbs and an area of woodland to the left ideal for both hide and seek and tree climbing!

This opens onto an expanse of lawn, again with spring bulbs, two apple trees and a pear tree together with two green- houses which both have power. Adjacent to the property there is a large terrace with a feature brick-built raised flower bed which is well-stocked and there is a paved pathway. The garden is the jewel in the crown of this property given its size, the planting and its secluded location in the sought- after private estate of Domewood close to the popular village of Copthorne.
