This presents an enticing chance to acquire a spacious country bungalow nestled within mature grounds of around 1.2 acres, directly adjoining the Wyre Forest Nature Reserve. The property, exuding traditional charm with its original section believed to date back to the inter-war period, awaits a discerning buyer. Requiring general updating, this residence offers a compelling prospect for renovation and customisation.

Previous extensions have significantly enlarged the original living space, comprising four well-proportioned bedrooms, a family bathroom, a large cloakroom, two living rooms and a sizeable dining kitchen. The interior layout is thoughtfully arranged, with living areas at one end and bedrooms and a bathroom at the other. The adjacency of the kitchen to one of the living rooms facilitates the creation of a large open-plan contemporary space, if desired.

Positioned centrally within the plot, the property enjoys a tranquil setting, surrounded by well-stocked mature gardens and generous grassed areas. The expansive grounds are ideal for gardening and offer space for animals, with an extensive wooden barn located at the rear.

Accessed from Dowles Road via a long gated driveway, leading to a parking area beside the bungalow and a double garage. The detached garage, accessed through double wooden doors, is equipped with power, lighting and overhead storage. The bungalow is entered through a side porch into an L-shaped hallway, which provides access to the bedrooms at one end and living areas at the other.

The Sitting Room
The spacious bay-fronted sitting room offers delightful views of the gardens and surrounding woodland and is enhanced by an open fireplace with a brick surround, decorative ceiling beams and wall lights. A doorway leads to the lounge at the front of the bungalow.

The Dining Room
Adjacent to the living room, the dining room is filled with natural light streaming through a large picture window. Features include a brick fireplace with a wood-burning stove and a sliding glass serving hatch which connects to the kitchen. There is an opportunity here to merge this room with the kitchen for a seamless open-plan layout.

The Kitchen
Bright and spacious, the kitchen includes wall and base units and work surfaces incorporating an inset sink drainer, a double oven and ample space for appliances. A large picture window looks out onto the gardens, which are accessed through a substantial rear porch.

The Bedrooms
The four bedrooms offer ample space for double beds. Two bedrooms feature washbasins, while another includes a shower area that could be converted into an en-suite.

The Bathroom
A spacious family bathroom with a corner shower cubicle, panelled bath, tiled walls, pedestal washbasin and low-level WC completes the accommodation.

The Gardens and Grounds
The grounds of this property are truly remarkable, offering a tranquil and idyllic retreat spanning approximately 1.2 acres and encircling the bungalow from all sides. Seamlessly blending with the mature woodland beyond, the gardens provide a captivating backdrop that evolves with the seasons.

Bursting with diversity, the gardens boast a rich array of mature plants, trees and flowering perennials including Camellias, Snowdrops, Yuccas, many Rose bushes and a wide variety of flowering bulbs and shrubs. Generous lawns grace the front, sides and rear of the property, complemented by a secluded patio and summerhouse. A gate to the rear boundary provides direct access to the Wyre Forest, with multiple bridleways being just yards away, perfect for leisurely walks, cycling and horse riding. Tucked away in one corner at the rear of the plot, a substantial wooden barn/stable offers versatile space suitable for storage or animal shelter. Adjacent to the stable, you will find a large wooden shed providing ample storage and two greenhouses to suit the keen gardener.
