A delightful 2 double bedroom riverside home set in good sized gardens with beautiful views over this picturesque stretch of the River Thames and Shepperton Lock. EPC: D
This attractive timber framed riverside bungalow has a lovely homely feel with bright and airy accommodation that has been extensively updated in the recent years, substantially improving its look and insulation factor by rendering the front and side elevations, the installation of sealed unit double glazing and a modern gas central heating boiler. Planning consent has been obtained for a front extension to provide a new kitchen and a large deck to the rear. This extension would enable the existing kitchen to be converted into a third bedroom and separate utility room. Steps to the rear lead up to a covered front door that opens into a reception hall with built-in storage, this forms the spine of the home allowing all the rooms to maximise upon the river and garden views. The riverside living room is a well-proportioned room with large picture windows and patio doors opening onto the south facing deck, affording attractive views over the river. The long galley style kitchen is to the rear overlooking the garden and fields. This has been attractively fitted with a range of cream fronted Shaker style units with solid oak worktops and an integrated washing machine and dishwasher. Provision has been made for a slot in cooker with a stainless steel cooker hood over and an upright fridge/freezer. Both the double bedrooms have built-in wardrobes and overlook the river; the main bedroom also has French doors opening onto the front deck and has an en-suite shower room. Completing the accommodation is the family bathroom, which has been attractively refitted with a modern 4 piece white suite including a separate shower cubical. Council Tax Band E
