SELLERS INSIGHT We have absolutely loved Badgers and our hearts and souls have gone in to it. Oakley Close is a fabulous place to live with friendly neighbours and plenty of on street parking for guests. Our vision was to make our home future proof and see us well in to our old age as our 'forever' home. Sadly, our circumstances have changed but we feel proud to be able to hand over such a cracking home to the new owners. The south facing views, sun rises, sun sets and the full moons across the coastline can be enjoyed from the bungalow with drinks on the balcony whilst watching the boats out to sea.
STEP INSIDE A composite front door leads into the bright entrance hall with neutral decor and high quality Karndean flooring. There are doors off to the living area, two of the bedrooms and the family bathroom.
The living space, with continuation of the Karndean flooring, is a fabulous area with the eye being immediately drawn to the breath taking views enjoyed from the large window looking far out across the sea and the coastline. This stunning aspect engulfs the living space which flows beautifully to the dining area where there is an additional uPVC double glazed window to the side. A low feature wall and solid oak top peninsula separate the kitchen space which is fitted with a modern, high quality Howdens kitchen with granite work top with lifetime guarantee and A-rated appliances including oven, microwave, freezer and gas hob from John Lewis with extractor above. There is also an integral water filter tap. The solid oak topped peninsula is a beautiful added feature creating character and depth to the space. The aforementioned stunning views can be enjoyed from all aspects of the open plan design and an additional Velux window has been installed above the kitchen flooding the area with natural light. From the kitchen there is a useful space with shelving, large enough for additional appliances and there is a uPVC door to the rear garden. The open plan living is fitted with ceiling spotlights with hanging pendant lighting above the peninsula.
From the hallway, there is a large bedroom to the front with neutral decor and wooden flooring. This room enjoys the same spectacular views as the living space with a window seat to relax and take in the glorious scenery.
A further bedroom with rear aspect has patio doors leading out to the rear garden and there is a useful recess with shelving.
The bathroom comprises bath with mixer tap and shower attachment, shower curtain, pedestal wash hand basin and low level dual flush WC. There is an obscure glazed window to the rear, extractor, heated towel rail and discreet storage cupboard with shelving.
Accessed from the living area, the master bedroom with Karndean flooring and ceiling spotlights, has a uPVC double glazed window with rear aspect and patio doors leading into the easy to maintain garden. A door leads through to the en suite shower room with ceiling spot lights, large shower cubicle, wash hand basin and low level dual flush WC and an obscure glazed window to the rear. A sliding door reveals a useful utility area with plumbing and space for a washing machine with an obscure glazed window to the side.
A new high efficiency boiler was installed at the property in 2014 and all radiators have been replaced. Under floor insulation has been placed throughout the bungalow using Celotex insulation boards to retain heat in winter months. All windows and the front door have been replaced over the last 8 years and the electrics have been upgraded with a new consumer unit fitted in 2014. All lighting is LED. The photovoltaic solar panels and batteries are owned by the property and were installed in 2021 making this a highly energy efficient property.

STEP OUTSIDE The front of the property is well maintained with driveway parking approaching the garage with up and over door and power and light. From the garage, plentiful under house storage is accessed and the Worcester combination boiler and batteries for the solar panels are housed here. There is also a further workshop area accessed from the garage. An area of level lawn with established plants and a variety of large palms decorate the front of the property with steps leading up to the front door and the balcony. The balcony has had all joists replaced, new noggins and double thickness boards laid before the application of a rubber roof with a life expectancy of 50 years. The balcony has new decking and is a real eye catching feature with oak balustrade, stainless steel stringers and jute rope giving a real nautical feel with the far reaching sea views directly ahead of you. Planning permission is in place to extend the balcony further if desired.
A path from the front leads around one side of the bungalow to the low maintenance rear garden which has an area laid to decorative pebbles and a level area of astroturf and there is an outside tap.
