The Property
High Day Gill is beautifully presented, four bedroom, dormer bungalow sat within 5.22 Hectares (12.89 Acres) appealing to a variety of purchasers. Constructed approximately 20 years ago the property has flexible accommodation which is well laid out and boasts extensive living space.

The rear entrance opens to the utility room which has a practical, terracotta-effect tiled floor with pebble decoration, together with base and wall mounted units, a sink, and voids for a washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher. Off the utility, there is a useful ground floor WC having hanging space for coats and a door opens to the kitchen.

The kitchen has a range of solid beech, base and wall mounted units with beech worktops, and an inset Belfast sink with brass taps. From here views are enjoyed over the lawned garden, driveway and duck ponds to the land beyond. There is a modern cream, Aga with electric oven and LPG fired six burner hob with extractor fan over. The decorative tiled splashbacks add a dash of colour to the room. There is space in the centre of the room for a kitchen table and chairs making the room a sociable space, ideal for families.

From the kitchen doors lead to the inner hallway and to the spacious living room. The living room has a gas fired stove sat upon a flagstone heath with decorative tiled fireplace. The living room has wooden flooring and stylish, reclaimed, cast iron radiators fired by the oil central heating system. There are two windows to the front elevation taking in the elevated view of the countryside surrounding the property. A door from the living room also provides access to the inner hallway meaning the principal accommodation flows well.

French doors also open to the dining room which is a large room having a dual aspect to the front and rear elevations with similar views while another pair of French doors open from into the conservatory. The conservatory is a spacious room and enjoys panoramic views to the front of the property around to the rear with French doors accessing the rear of the property. The conservatory has recently had a new solid roof installed which makes the room an even more useable as the temperature is more easily controlled.

From the front entrance hallway doors radiate to the remaining ground floor living accommodation and stairs rise to the first floor.

There are two double bedrooms on the ground floor both of which are spacious rooms, one which is south facing and used as a study with a cast iron fireplace with flag stone hearth and one which is currently used as a home gym with views out to the rear.

The family bathroom lies next to the second bedroom having tiled walls and flooring and has a freestanding roll top bath, corner shower cubicle, WC and wash hand basin.

This arrangement of bedrooms and bathroom on the ground floor accommodation would suit dependant relatives requiring single storey living.

To the first floor the master suite is a large double bedroom which has a dressing room and an en suite bathroom. The bedroom has a dormer window to the rear and two conservation roof windows to the front elevation flooding the room with natural light. This bedroom has useful eaves storage space to the front and rear elevations and the dressing room is fitted with shelving and clothing rails.

The en suite bathroom has recently been refitted with a white bathroom suite with stylish matt black fittings comprising a bath with mains connected shower over with a rainfall style shower head, WC and wash hand basin set in a grey gloss vanity unit providing excellent storage space and has a grey wood effect gloss work surface.

The second bedroom on the first floor is another excellent sized double bedroom having a dormer window to the rear elevation, a window to the side elevation and a conservation roof window allowing lots of natural light into the room. Similar to the master suite this room has useful eaves storage. This room could be divided to create two double bedrooms subject to alterations and obtaining the necessary consents.

The property is approached along a private driveway lined with crossbuck style fencing. The driveway sweeps around the lawned garden at the rear of the property and past two manmade duck ponds and leads to the large garage block.

The garage block is alarmed and provides secure parking for numerous vehicles and benefits from a water supply, lighting and power with all four doors being remotely controlled. The garage houses the fuel tanks for the property and would work well as a workshop space with the potential to be partially converted into a stable block if desired. Built to a high specification, subject to the necessary consents this detached building could be converted into additional accommodation.

To the front of the property there is a low maintenance gravelled front garden, with space for outdoor seating to enjoy the morning sun.
