DESCRIPTION

Cleve Bungalow is a pretty south facing property dating back to the 1930s, which has recently been stylishly extended to architect's design, providing a light and airy split level single storey home, whilst retaining the flavour of the original bungalow. The design takes full advantage of the views and the private rural position. A bespoke glazed atrium floods the central interior of the house with light, imparting a contemporary and spacious feel. The kitchen is fitted with a range of quality units and enjoys a vaulted ceiling with light streaming in from the glazed roof. Deep cupboards (with hand made pitch pine doors) adjacent to the kitchen, house the boiler, and opposite is the utility cupboard, with space and plumbing for washing machine, dryer and shelving. Fully glazed double doors lead to a patio area with water feature.

The sitting room is double aspect, with fireplace fitted with wood burning stove and open to the delightful enclosed verandah with wide sliding doors opening onto the south elevation of the house. The dining room also connects to the verandah and is open to the kitchen providing a superb open plan living, dining and kitchen area.

Of the four double bedrooms, two are located in the original part of the property, both with fireplaces; one with a wood stove and the other with an art nouveau surround. A new shower room is adjacent. A few steps lead up from the bright and welcoming hall to the new wing with two delightful double bedrooms with vaulted ceilings and large box bay windows with strong oak detail and deep oak sills providing a charming place to sit. Between the bedrooms is the family bathroom.
