A most attractive detached chalet style bungalow which is located in a small close on the edge of Benhall Green within walking distance of the village primary school and social club. The property which was built to a high standard by Elmore Homes in the 1990s, occupies a large plot with a beautiful rear garden that abuts open farmland. The accommodation has been extended and altered by the seller who has owned the property since it was built. The first floor includes two generous sized double bedrooms which are served by a smart shower room. The ground floor bedroom is adjacent to the study/snug and is served by a well appointed downstairs shower room. These rooms have been used in the past as guest accommodation and are ideal for anyone unable to use the stairs. There is a large sitting room with an elegant fireplace that presently houses an electric stove, but which could be adapted for a wood burner. French windows lead out from the sitting room to the garden. The kitchen/dining room is also well-proportioned and is fitted with oak fronted cabinets. There is a recess off the kitchen/dining room with additional storage and appliance space. This opens to a large conservatory/garden room with doors at either end to the garden and patio. A courtesy door leads into the garage. The garage has been divided to create a cycle store at the front and a laundry room at the back. The partition could be removed, if required, and the garage reinstated. The property is double glazed and centrally heated by oil-fired radiators. The garden, which is a notable feature, is well stocked and planted with herbaceous borders, mature shrubs and lovely ornamental trees. There are two sheds and an open bay store with a small lean to greenhouse/potting shed to the side. The property is approached via an unmade un-adopted lane. This leads to the private close. The driveway affords ample parking and the lawn extends beyond the driveway to the boundary hedge at the front. There are covenants which prohibit the parking of boats/trailers and some other vehicle types.
