This beautifully constructed detached chalet bungalow was built approximately 12 years ago creating an individual family home that has both elegance and a country feel together with the advantages of modern day living situated in the popular village of Ulcombe. The entrance hall has a cloakroom, large storage cupboard and opens through to an inner hallway where there are three double bedrooms and a family bathroom. Travertine tiled natural stone floor tiling extends throughout most of the downstairs with thermostatically controlled underfloor heating. Two of the bedrooms are to the front and the third bedroom has French doors opening onto the rear garden and has built in mirrored wardrobes. The family bathroom is tiled in the same natural stone and has a large bath tub and separate shower cubicle. Through the double oak doors is the open plan kitchen/breakfast room and just stunning living room/dining room. The kitchen has a superb range of cream fitted units with oak worktops, integrated dishwasher and breakfast bar. There is space for an American fridge/freezer and Rangemaster oven (available by separate negotiation) and access to the garage where there is a utility area with butler style sink and space for a washing machine and tumble dryer. The open plan sitting/dining room certainly has the wow factor with vaulted ceilings, exposed beams and feature chimney breast with dual fuel log burner. Three sets of oak framed French doors open onto the garden bringing the outside space in. Stairs up to the first floor take you onto the galleried landing overlooking the living room. This space is currently used as a study area by the current owners and has door through to the huge L shaped master suite with en-suite bathroom and dressing area. The master suite is light and bright with window to the front and double velux windows. The en-suite has bathtub and twin vanity sinks built into storage cupboards. The dressing area has triple mirrored sliding wardrobes.
