The details

This bungalow is situated in small hamlet with wide open south facing views including the 16th Century thatched Pethybridge cottage which was the principal building for this ancient farming hamlet.

It is well-presented with light and neutral decor, has predominantly energy efficient LED spot-lighting throughout with oil-fired central heating, hard-wood double-glazing and two solid-fuel stoves, making it feel warm and welcoming. The layout of the property provides a facility for a self-contained holiday let or a living space for a relative, with its own access and kitchen.

A rustic granite porch makes a nice character feature and a decoratively glazed oak door leads into the entrance hallway which has beautiful engineered-oak flooring.

The oak flooring continues into a spacious living room which is filled with light from a large wide window to the side and French doors to the front, from where there are lovely views over the garden and wooded countryside beyond. An inset fireplace with a slate hearth and marble mantle is fitted with a wood burning stove, making a fabulous feature and focal point for the room, wonderful with a roaring fire on a dark winter night.

The hallway leads into an open-plan kitchen/dining room where there is plenty of space, enough for a large farmhouse table with ample seating for extended family and social gatherings. The kitchen area has a large Velux window in its high vaulted ceiling, a tiled floor and a modern fitted kitchen that has plenty of worktop space with tiled splashbacks and a range of oak-fronted high and low-level units providing ample cupboard space, complete with under-cabinet feature lighting. A fabulous range oven provides the excellent cooking facilities with a wide extractor hood above, there is an integrated dishwasher and floor space for an upright fridge/freezer. A stable-style door leads into a porch with a door to the rear of the property and there is power point for a tumble dryer if required.

The master bedroom is a spacious double with a fitted double-wardrobe and a high, vaulted, pine-panelled ceiling with a Velux skylight adding to the light from a window and French doors to the garden. A shower room has a tiled floor and contains a modern suite comprising a shower, a basin and a WC, a chrome heated towel rail and matching tiling above the shower and basin. A small lobby in front of the shower room has a hatch in the ceiling providing access to a boarded loft space where there is extensive storage and a Velux window providing natural light.

A large carpeted snug with clear glazed door leading onto the front veranda also has a multi-fuel stove to provide a cosy environment during the winter. Front and rear windows provide plenty of light for those wishing to work from home. Internet connection is good.

A stable door leads into a utility room to the rear which has a durable vinyl floor containing fitted kitchen units in white, plenty of worktop space, a stainless-steel sink and drainer, tiled splash backs, a door to the garden and plenty of floor space together with room beneath the worktops for a washing machine and several other appliances. It is currently fitted out as a second kitchen which has been used for holiday letting.

A glazed pine door leads to an inner hallway leading to three further bedrooms, all light and airy, two doubles and a large single. A bathroom has a tiled floor and part-tiled walls containing a P-bath with a shower and curved glass screen above, a pedestal basin and a WC all in white and an airing cupboard with louvre doors contains an insulated hot water cylinder and slatted shelving for linen.

Outside, a timber five-bar gate opens to allow access onto a block-paved driveway that widens to provide parking for at least four cars and a campervan or a caravan, beside a timber garage that has double barn-style doors and lights.

A block-paved path continues through the garden with extensive lawns on either side and steps lead up to a terrace of flagstone-paving, making a fabulous outside space for sharing a bottle of wine with loved ones. Being south-facing, it enjoys long hours of summer sunshine. A sheltered veranda at the front of the property makes a fabulous vantage point from where to take in the stunning rural views and tranquil surroundings.

A gate leads through a low Beech hedge into an orchard with several apple trees. A path continues to the rear, where there are steps up to the double-bunded plastic oil-tank, screened by conifers, a greenhouse, a bed of raspberry bushes, a timber shed for storing logs and a gate into the rear of the orchard.

Lustliegh has a thriving, active community with a popular pub/restaurant, attractive tea-room and a Community run shop. There are extensive walks from the property, footpaths in and around the village and beyond to the open moor abound.
