This high-quality property is set within private and secluded grounds, with astonishing views taking in a large section of the Severn Valley and skies above providing an ever-changing vista, which cannot fail to impress.

The property is geared up to make the best of these views, with a large sun terrace at the front providing a wonderful place to sit and watch the steam trains go by below.

The building has lots of glass, flooding the bungalow with light and allowing the resident to take in the panorama from many of the main rooms, including the living room, office, dining room and the two largest bedrooms. There are Bi-fold doors, which lead out from the master suite, perfect for the summer months when you can wake up and go outside for a morning coffee on the terrace.

The current owners have spared no expense in further improving what was already a marvellous home, refurbishing much of the interior with the help of Neptune home design and Karndean flooring, whilst further improving the kitchen with the addition of a solid wood central island unit and the refitting of the adjoining utility room.

The list of improvements goes on and has been complemented by a great deal of works to the outside, including the landscaping of a rear section of garden making it ideal for alfresco dining.

Hartington is approached from Dowles Road via a long sweeping private driveway, which services this and just one other property. The drive culminates in an expansive parking area, which can accommodate many vehicles including caravans, motorhomes, boats, and the like.

There is a double garage accessed from the parking area, which has two up-and-over doors to the front, power, lighting, a wall-mounted Worcester boiler, a side door for access on foot and an Andersen electric car charging point.

The property is accessed via a light and airy porch, which has full-height windows, quality Karndean flooring and a glazed internal door leading to the entrance hallway.

There is a main hallway beyond the entrance hallway, which is extremely well-presented and inviting, with space for a seating area if desired. The accommodation radiates beautifully from here, with the living accommodation to one side separated nicely from the bedrooms and bathrooms.

At the heart of the living accommodation, there is a wonderful kitchen flowing seamlessly from the dining room providing a superb place for family and entertaining.

The kitchen is extremely spacious and well-appointed to a high-quality finish, with granite work surfaces housing an inset Belfast sink and backed by Metro-style tiling.

There is a solid wood central island, a wealth of cupboard space with additional glass-fronted display cabinets and a food pantry. The kitchen also includes a Range style oven with an extractor above, Karndean flooring and a skylight.

There are quality bi-fold doors opening beautifully onto the rear of the property, which has been extensively landscaped by the owners to provide an extension of the living space ideal for alfresco dining.

Utility room
A spacious utility room adjoins the kitchen, complete with Karndean flooring, a double oven, a full-height window to the rear, wall and base cupboards and space and plumbing under counter for appliances.

Situated at the end of the utility room, a door leads to the WC comprising Karndean flooring, a vanity unit, a low-level WC and a glazed door leading outside.

Dining room
The bay-fronted dining room is spacious and light, with splendid views and French doors leading out to the terrace. This room features delightful wooden parquet flooring, which has been beautifully refurbished by the current owners.

There is a stunning contemporary gas fire backed by attractive herringbone tiling, which has been added to provide a focal point.

Living room
The impressive living room is extremely spacious and floods with light from a skylight and a large picture window, the latter providing fantastic views of the grounds and countryside beyond.

At the centre of this room is a rustic fireplace with an oak mantlepiece, a black granite hearth and an inset wood-burning stove.

Office/media room
Adjoining the living room is an office/media room with magnificent views of the countryside from full-height windows.

Hartington boasts an impressive array of bedroom and bathroom space, with two of the four bedrooms having splendid views, further complemented by ensuite wet room facilities and an immaculately presented family bathroom servicing bedrooms three and four.

Master bedroom
The impressive master bedroom is an extremely spacious and light double room featuring high-quality fitted wardrobes to one wall and bi-fold doors leading onto the front terrace, affording the most wonderful views.

The accompanying ensuite wet room is extremely spacious and beautifully appointed, with a screened shower area, fully tiled floors and walls, a pedestal washbasin, a low-level WC and a radiator/towel rail combo.

Bedroom two
Bedroom two boasts fantastic countryside views and benefits from an ensuite wet room, which is almost identical in size and style to that servicing the master.

Bedroom three
The third bedroom is a spacious double with dual aspect windows overlooking the gardens.

Bedroom four
The fourth and final bedroom is a good-sized single room featuring views out to the rear of the property.

Family bathroom
Completing the accommodation is a fully tiled family bathroom, which is nicely appointed and comprises a panelled bath with shower above, wall lights, plentiful built-in storage, a pedestal washbasin, a low-level WC and a frosted window.

Gardens and grounds
The grounds belonging to Hartington are a hugely impressive feature, not least because they enjoy the most amazing views and are completely secluded and private, totalling around 1.3 acres.

The gardens are extremely diverse offering a range of formal landscaped areas and more naturalised sections, which blend seamlessly with the rural surroundings.

Situated at the front of the bungalow is a truly superb, paved terrace providing a great spot from which to admire the views and enjoy the sun on a lovely day.

From here steps lead down to extensive sweeping lawns, which incorporate a gravelled seating area further down. The gardens are enclosed by mature borders and conifer trees.

Tucked away in one corner of the grounds, there is a secret garden area which the vendors have created. The area has raised beds and borders and leads to a small orchard and a veg patch with an accompanying potting shed.

Wooden cabin
Neatly positioned to one side of the property is a fantastic wooden cabin, which is currently set up as a bar and games room, with a sheltered porch to the front. The cabin benefits further from power, lighting and Sky TV.

At the rear of the property, there is a nicely landscaped area sheltered by retaining walls featuring paved areas with inset gravelled beds and raised borders. This is an ideal place for entertaining and alfresco dining.

Hartington has mains gas, electricity and water, a septic tank and benefits from a security alarm system and CCTV.
