  • Permitted development of a single storey extension
  • Fabulous location

This is an excellent opportunity to buy a three-bedroom, detached bungalow with unspoilt land and outbuildings in a simply beautiful location. The property has a development permit for a single storey extension.

Moving through the gap in the mature hedge which runs along the road boundary of the property, takes you up a sloping tarmacked driveway to the spacious parking area at the side of the property. There is plenty of space here to park several cars, and a single garage which is nestled slightly behind the main house.

There are lawns to either side of the drive, offering a clean slate for avid gardeners.

Walking along a paved path to the front of the house brings you to the front door, and the path is bordered by a number of rather overgrown shrubs, but this could be easily remedied. The front aspect commands wonderful views of the meadow in front of the house.

Moving through the front door brings you into an entrance hall, with a door to the reception room to your right, and a large storage cupboard to the left, which is ideal for coats and boots.

Moving forward again, brings you into a corridor which moves along the center of the house to the left. There is a second storage cupboard to your right.

Once round the corner, you have yet another cupboard on your right, and then the corridor opens out into a landing with doors to the bathroom and separate loo to the right, the door to bedroom two straight ahead of you and doors to bedroom one and three to your left.

The reception room is a great sized, L-shaped room, which has two enormous, double aspect, double-glazed, windows which are almost floor to ceiling, flooding the room with natural light and allowing views over the stunning countryside beyond.

The kitchen is reached through a door in the living room and is of a good size, with a large storage cupboard/pantry immediately to the right of the entrance, and a door leading to the back of the property beyond that. This room is in need of a complete refurbishment. Immediately out of the back door, there is another large storage cupboard attached to the back of the garage.

Bedroom one is the largest of the three bedrooms; it is bright and airy thanks to a huge window overlooking the lawns, meadow and glorious views at the front of the property. It has a long radiator under the window and is in need of some cosmetic work.

Bedroom two is at the back of the property, next to bedroom one, and is another bright, double room. The large, double-glazed window overlooks the back of the property and Pepper Woods behind.

This room, like the rest of the house, is in much need of some T.L.C.

Bedroom three has plenty of room for a single bed and has a large, double-glazed window overlooking the front aspect of the property, along with those lovely views.

The bathroom and separate W.C. are in need of refurbishment and could easily be knocked through to make a large and bright family bath/shower room, with two windows, allowing natural light to flood the space.

Lawns surround the house and provide an enormous amount of potential for proper landscaping and for someone to really use their imagination to create their dream garden.

The existing herbaceous borders are in desperate need of weeding and pruning; but there are one or two mature plants which may be worth keeping. At present, there is no fence separating the 1.4 acres of pasture, which extends to the south of the property and the garden. This field would be ideal for use as a small holding, or maybe for horses, as it is plenty big enough to be parcelled up into paddocks.

At the bottom of the meadow, right on the southern boundary of the property, there are several old greenhouses which are overgrown.

To the west, under the trees on the boundary with the woods, there are a couple of outbuildings, which are also in need of renovation, but provide scope for turning into a workshop or stables.

There is some hard-standing here as well under the vegetation.

Cesspit, of which cleaning is shared with neighbours. Mains electricity and water.

Oil-fired central heating and double-glazed windows.

Permitted Development - A single storey extension, up to 8 metres in length and 4 metres in height. Loft conversions are also included as long as the conversion is relatively simple with roof windows.

Administration Fee - refundable on exchange

An administration fee, refundable on exchange, is payable prior to the issue of the Memorandum of Sale and after which the property may be marked as Sold Subject to Contract. The fee will be reimbursed upon the successful Exchange of Contracts.

The fee will be retained by Andrew Grant in the event that you the buyer withdraws from the purchase or does not Exchange within 6 months of the fee being received other than for one or more of the following reasons:

1. Any significant material issues highlighted in a survey that were not evident or drawn to the attention of you the buyer prior to the Memorandum of Sale being issued.
2. Serious and material defect in the seller’s legal title.
3. Local search revealing a matter that has a material adverse effect on the market value of the property that was previously undeclared and not in the public domain.
4. The vendor withdrawing the property from sale.

The administration fee levels are as follows:
an agreed offer under £500,000 will be £750 inclusive of vat
an agreed offer between £500,000 and £1,000,000 will be £2,000 inclusive of vat
all agreed offers over £1,000,000 will be £3,000 inclusive of vat

The administration fee is payable upon acceptance by the vendor of an offer from a buyer and a positive completion of an assessment of the buyer’s financial status and ability to proceed.
Should a buyer’s financial position regarding the funding of the property prove to be fundamentally different from that declared by the buyer when the Memorandum of Sale was completed, then the Vendor has the right to withdraw from the sale and the administration fee retained. For example, where the buyer declares themselves as a cash buyer but are in fact relying on an unsecured sale of their property.

Once the administration fee has been paid, any renegotiation of the price stated in the memorandum of sale for any reason other than those covered in points 1 to 3 above will lead to the reservation fee being retained. A further fee will be levied on any subsequent reduced offer that is accepted by the vendor. This further fee will be subject to the same conditions that prevail for all administration fees outlined above.
