Located within a village close to local amenities and appreciating countryside views, this deceptively spacious dorma bungalow provides 3 bedrooms and an attic extension offering occasional use for a 4th bedroom. With neutral décor throughout and wrap-a-round gardens, viewings are highly recommended.
This double fronted bungalow has been extended to the rear, side and also offers a third bedroom and attic room offering considerable internal space that may not be first apparent from the external presentation. Capitalising on the countryside views to the rear, the garden room which can be approached from the sitting rooms is furnished with double glazed doors allowing for the scenery to be appreciated and natural light to stream through reaching every corner. The grounds offer a considerable amount of space and include a lengthy block paved driveway leading to a single garage and lawn to the front and side. Well maintained, they have much further scope to personalise and the low level wall to the front can be raised for those seeking additional privacy. Set well back from Huddersfield Road given the deep set pavements and recessed elevation of the property behind a large lawn, the property enjoys all the amenities that Skelmanthorpe has to offer. A short walk into the village takes you to a post office, Co-operative store, florists, boutique shop, gin bar, coffee house any many more. Two primary schools lead into Scissett Middle School and the area benefits from being in the catchment for Shelley College which offers a 6th form for further education. By car, Leeds City Centre and Meadowhall can be reached in just around half an hour and Denby Dale Village has a local train station providing free parking that easily reaches Sheffield, Huddersfield and many notable local villages between.
GROUND FLOOR Immediately upon entering the property you are greeted with a spacious hall that demonstrates the internal space available within. Throughout the property, it is apparent how much storage is available given the large cloakroom cupboard, under stairs cubby hole and shelving provisions all available in the hallway alone. The property instantly feels light and airy and maximising on the views to the rear, the double glazed doors to the sitting room allow for the light to stream through from the garden room and to enjoy the scenery beyond. The ground floor has an incredibly versatile layout and offers 2 bedrooms, one to the front elevation and the other in the enviable rear elevation with stunning views. Both bedrooms enjoy easy access to the contemporary bathroom which includes a 3 piece suite and fixed chrome rain shower head with mixer controls above the bath. The kitchen is closely located to the utility room and dining room guaranteeing a great flow to the home. The breakfast kitchen benefits from an assortment of wooden wall and base units and ample space for free standing appliances and further includes a 11/2 stainless steel sink and drainer recessed within a roll top work surface. With additional room for a breakfast table, this allows for the dining room to be utilised to the home owners satisfaction. The utility room used to form part of the original kitchen so with the benefit of plumbing for a washing machine, work surface and units, the utility room has easy access to the garden, ideal for household laudry duties. The garden room to the rear of the home is a wonderful environment for social entertainment given the views and internal space within and with double doors leading into the comfortable and welcoming sitting room, opened up for great flow, the space is to be much admired.
FIRST FLOOR With acquired planning permission a further bedroom has been designed to the first floor and easily accommodates a king size bed with space for free standing furniture and a Velux window for natural lighting. Again as is the theme throughout, the bedroom has plentiful storage facilities within the eaves and this again is repeated in the landing zone. Only a viewing can really demonstrate the footprint this property is afforded and for occasional use the remainder of the attic can be utilised as a bedroom and a toilet and wash basin has been installed for convenience.
GARAGE A single garage is located towards the end of the driveway accessed via an up and over door.
EXTERIOR With a low level wall to the front, set well back from Huddersfield Road, Avoca is approached through brick pillars onto a blocked paved driveway. Substantial lawns and established hedging to the front sweep to the side where further lawn and pebbled sections for pots are located. South facing with far reaching views, the rear of the property has a wonderful flagged pathway suitable for garden furniture to sit and admire the scenery whilst catching the evening sunshine. With a generally open aspect, the large grounds have great potential to personalise and can be further secured with high fencing and electric gates if a chosen preference.
