Travelling south into North Somercotes on the A1031 road, pass by the Axe and Cleaver public house on the right and continue to the village centre. Take the left turn opposite the Methodist Chapel along Churchill Road and then carry on until the right turning into Willerton Road is found on the right side. Turn along here and proceed until the turning into Squires Meadow is found on the left. Take the turning and go towards the end of this small, attractive development of individual homes - the long driveway leading to number 9 will be found on the right side. The secondary access is kept locked but can be found by turning left at the end of Willerton Road onto the small unmade lane. The first gates on the left open onto the second parking area and garage. The Property
This well-designed bungalow is now about 10 years old and has brick-faced walls beneath a pitched timber roof structure covered in concrete tiles. The windows and external doors are uPVC framed double-glazed units and the fascias and soffits are in complementary white uPVC.
The accommodation is superbly arranged to provide three excellent double bedrooms (two of which each have an ensuite shower room) and contemporary living space of generous proportions which flows beautifully from a large reception hallway.
The lounge has dual aspect windows and stands within the projecting front wing while the second reception room can be a sitting room (as at present) or dining room, with French doors onto the conservatory beyond and a wide opening to the impressive breakfast-kitchen adjacent. An oil-fired central heating boiler provides under-floor heating with individual digital room thermostat controls and a pressurised hot water system. A glance at the EPC graph will confirm the efficiency and economical running costs of this property.
The detached garage is built to complement the bungalow with brick-faced twin-skin walls under a pitched concrete tiled roof and has an attached sturdy garden store finished to a high standard.
This exceptional property has been maintained and finished to exacting standards and represents a turn-key opportunity for a discerning buyer. Accommodation
