4 Bedroom Detached Bungalow (Now Sold)
Nethern Court Road, Woldingham, Surrey
Situated in a quiet, private residential cul-de-sac, within level walking distance of the village centre. This hill top bungalow has light spacious rooms centred around the large lounge/dining room. Originally thought to be the Coach House and converted in about 1920 with hung tile extensions and subsequent further extensions on either end. All rooms benefit from either double or secondary glazing throughout. The sale of Highclere offers a unique opportunity to purchase one of the few smaller but spacious and secluded properties in Woldingham.
A compact entrance conservatory leads to the entrance hall with convenient coat cupboard and corridor leading to the lounge, kitchen, front double bedroom, bathroom/toilet and large extension which could be used as a further double bedroom, study, dining or play room.
The fitted kitchen, which would benefit from a make over, is rear facing with external door to the back of the property. The bathroom also houses the gas fired condensate boiler for hot water and central heating system. The large north extension has a double aspect with external access to the entrance drive via double patio doors.
The lounge/dining room forms the centre of the bungalow with large picture windows and double patio doors providing good views of the front garden and particularly in the winter panoramic view of the North Downs. The lounge incorporates an attractive brick fire place with fitted gas coal effect fire, but could be re-instated as wood or coal burning fire if preferred.
A door off the far end of the lounge leads to a second corridor with access to a rear double bedroom, front single bedroom, shower/toilet and master bedroom. The rear bedroom is double aspect with fitted wardrobe and sink in a vanity unit. The single front bedroom has good views of the garden and North Downs. The master bedroom is double aspect with good views, patio door to the outside and fitted wardrobe.
The spacious loft provides access to the full roof area which is partially boarded and offers a large storage space easily accessed via a fitted loft ladder in the entrance corridor ceiling.
The entrance drive provides ample parking, access to the double garage (with power and light) and leads to a curved brick wall with gate access to the front door.
The secluded garden (meadow) lawn to the front (east) runs down hill with a flat lawn to the south (adjacent to the master bedroom) and raised terrace along the rear of the garden/house (west). The lawn comes to life in spring with daffodils in the raised terrace and meadow lawn filled with prim roses and other wild flowers.
The property is approximately half an acre in area and maintenance is relatively easy consisting mainly of cutting the lawn and hedges.
Drainage is to a cesspit adjacent to the entrance gate.
The small flat roof to the entrance conservatory is close to the end of its serviceable life and will need replacement in the near future.
The double glazing unit to the master bedroom door has ‘blown’ and needs replacement.
The original walls including the original hung tile extensions are constructed of 9 inch solid brickwork the extensions at each end, the entrance conservatory and front lounge wall are all cavity wall construction.
The property has been a rental property for several years and would benefit from being redecorated.
