In the small but well-connected village of Failand, this stunning home offers the very best contemporary refurbishment, says James Higgins
This impressive dormer bungalow boasts an incredible purpose-built kitchen/dining room extension. A chic refurbishment throughout the remainder of the house has transformed this property into a spectacular family home. Positioned in Failand, just the other side of Long Ashton, this bungalow has convenient access to trunk routes, Bristol and picturesque Avon Valley views from the Leigh Woods nature reserve.
A high-quality renovation has transformed every corner of this property and it now benefits from contemporary design, an open-plan layout and the very best fixtures and fittings.
Arranged across two floors, it features four double-bedrooms, a combined living space of over 100m², a family bathroom and two en suites. There is also ample storage space provided by the eaves and the integral garage.
The large kitchen/dining room occupies the unique extension to the property’s rear. With bi-fold and sliding doors, skylights and multiple aspects, the plentiful natural makes the stunning fitted kitchen units gleam. The room features a porcelain-tiled floor with digital control underfloor heating, a large island unit, wood-effect worktops, range oven and hob, integrated dishwasher, fridge/freezer and microwave oven. The grand proportions, vaulted ceiling and superb spotlighting gives the room modern sophistication.
The adjacent sitting room is partially knocked through and this open-plan arrangement lends itself well to modern, family living. There is underfloor heating, a contemporary wood burning stove and large double-glazed windows to three elevations. Double glass-panelled doors lead from the sitting room onto the hallway where the practical and stylish wood-effect flooring continues. Two bedrooms, a family bathroom and utility room lead off the hallway which also provides access to the integral garage. The family bathroom comprises a walk-in shower with drench-effect shower head and a bath tub.
The two largest bedrooms and their accompanying en suite shower rooms are located on the first floor. Both bedrooms and en suites in this converted attic space enjoy double-glazed skylights.
To the rear of the property, there is a good-sized garden largely laid to lawn and a rear flagstone patio accessible from the kitchen/dining room. The wraparound lawn is low maintenance, but the garden is ripe for future development and contains trees and a flower bed. There is parking for multiple vehicles to the front of the property.
