A modern detached true bungalow that enjoys a quiet position on a large south facing plot surrounded by open farmland and with ample parking and well-tended gardens. Located on the edge of the hamlet of Bowston that is both quiet yet convenient for access to the market town of Kendal, the ever-popular village of Staveley and the Lake District National Park.
The extended layout offers flexibility for all the family with the four double bedrooms and three bath/shower rooms balancing well with three living rooms, a breakfast kitchen and a large utility room. The presentation and tasteful decor says – I’m ready to move into – come and see if you agree, that is of course if you are looking for much more space than you would expect from a traditional modern bungalow.
Description The first impression is that of a traditional three bedroom bungalow, but those that look at the floor plan and then make an appointment to view, will we think, be both delighted and surprised by the generosity of space that awaits behind the front door. The living space offers flexibility with plenty of room for the growing family, for those with teenagers or dependent relatives, or for those wishing to work from home. The three living rooms are well balanced by four good double bedrooms and three bath/shower rooms, there is a breakfast kitchen and a large utility room that opens into the attached garage. The property has been maintained to a high standard and benefits from gas central heating and UPVC double glazed windows and fascias. The gardens face south and adjoin open countryside and the driveway provides plenty of parking. An early appointment to view is highly recommended.
Location Situated on the edge of Bowston, the property can be found by travelling through the village of Burneside and on entering Bowston take the first left and bearing right into Meadow Close and number 14 is the first property on your left on the corner of this quiet cul-de-sac.
The hamlet of Bowston is on the ever popular Dales Way route and offers easy access for the market towns of Kendal and Windermere and the bustling village of Staveley with its shops, school, church, pubs and railway station is but a few minutes drive or cycle away.
