Situated in the favoured 'London Road' area to the West side of Wickford, this 3 Bedroom Fully Detached Bungalow enjoys an enviable non-estate setting with farmland behind the properties opposite
Wickford High Street with its range of well-known and independent shops, bars, restaurants, and Co-Op Store is a leisurely walk at 0.9 mile, with the Station a little further at just over a mile. Plus, Grange Primary School is literally a 2 minute drive (0.8 mile) away and the local Co-op Convenience Shop is an easy 11 minute stroll.
The property has undergone a program of full refurbishment since the owner purchased it 4 years ago, with its present day accommodation briefly comprising a great size Entrance Hall with attractive wood flooring extending into the Lounge and the bedrooms, the aforementioned dual aspect Lounge which has a Fireplace and lots of glazing bathing it in light, sleek 'handless' White Gloss Kitchen with a big peninsular Breakfast Bar, three bedrooms (all of which will take double beds) and a Bathroom currently fitted out as a rather swish and fancy contemporary style Shower Room.
A loft conversion would be an obvious and affordable way of adding even more room to this property, as the space is already there contained in the roof space which already has a window!
Externally there is a large front 4-5 Car Drive and to the rear, the 60ft Garden features an Indian Sandstone Patio and a rear set of Double Gates offering optional rear access.
Over 23ft (7.2m) long and opening up to nearly 6ft wide, this great first impression has sugar white walls, beautiful 'Oak' Cottage style internal doors and attractive wood laminate flooring, which continues into the Lounge and Bedrooms.
The flip down loft hatch provides access to the enormous roof space which interestingly features a rear facing window and clearly lends itself for a loft conversion.
LOUNGE 14ft 2' x 12ft 7' (4.3m x 3.8m)
Bathed in light by a large set of patio doors and a further big, side facing window.
Although boarded up at the moment, the Fireplace is still live and so we thought a woodburning Stove or similar would look quite the part here.
KITCHEN/DINER 16ft 4' x 9ft 5' (5m x 2.8m)
(The measurements excluding depth of units on for wall).
White Gloss 'Handleless' kitchen units are married with slate effect, square edge worktops and incorporate a black Ceramic Hob with a stainless-steel Chimney style Extractor Hood above, built-in Multi-function Oven with built-in Microwave above, and recesses for a fridge/freezer, washing machine and slimline dishwasher.
One of the matching full height units opens to reveal a modern electrical Consumer unit, another the Baxi 600 Combination Boiler, installed two years ago.
The projecting Breakfast Bar provides storage space, work space and the perfect place to socialise.
MASTER BEDROOM 13ft 10' x 10ft (4.2m x 3m)
A spacious double bedroom bathed in light by the huge 8ft x 5ft front facing window, which enjoys a nice outlook, as the front is well screened from the road by a tall laurel hedge and across the road, established trees give a pleasant sylvan outlook.
A very light sleeper, the Vendor has fitted the window with Laminated Glass: This consists of two glass panes with an interlayer in between them, thus reducing the vibrations sound creates and muffling most sounds that would come right through ordinary glass.
BEDROOM TWO 11ft 5' x 8ft (3.5m x 2.45m)
Another front facing double bedroom with a large window maximising light.
BEDROOM THREE 10ft x 9ft 9' (3.1m x 3m)
Another room benefiting from a large window optimising light.
Brushed sockets on the wall provide neat and uncluttered wiring for a wall mounted TV.
BATHROOM 9ft x 5ft 9' (2.74m x 1.75m)
With a side facing window providing natural light, the bathroom has been refitted as a luxury on-trend Shower Room complete with a huge 5ft 8' x 2ft 2' (1.7m x 0.66m) walk in Shower with a Triton electric shower, close coupled WC, and a wide White Gloss Vanity unit with twin pull-out drawers.
Gorgeous grey stone effect ceramic tiling and a chrome towel radiator completes the look.
EXTERIOR - FRONT
A two tone block paved Drive provides parking for 3/4 cars. Two lawned areas, a couple of sapling trees and the front laurel hedge providing the soft landscaping.
Indian sandstone paving extends across the width of the Garden and along the right border, the wide path running down to the end of the garden where a large 33ft x 20ft split level Patio invites al-fresco dining and entertaining during the summer months.
A timber pergola with bamboo laid across the top and around the sides provides the ideal spot for the Owners rattan sofa set and hot tub and to the left of this, an 8ft x 6ft Shed provides additional storage.
Discreetly hidden by Bamboo slatting, a set of double gates opens to reveal a private rear access drive for this property and the bungalow next door.
There's also an external power socket, lighting, outside tap and down each side, wide footpaths
