This converted bungalow stands in a conservation area yet it has many high quality contemporary features
Where: Kirkside, The Hillocks, Croston, PR26 9RE.#
What: A beautiful home set in an idyllic spot and forming part of the conservation area over Pack Horse Bridge, on a quiet country lane, beyond a stone wall with picket gate. Kirkside is close to the village centre and backs onto the River Yarrow, but safe from the recent floods.
Inside: From the exterior the property is deceptive. Viewing reveals light and spacious accommodation which is immaculately presented throughout. The original bungalow was extended and totally refurbished to make a true family home and allowed the current owners to introduce more contemporary features.
There is a spacious hallway with oak flooring, beamed ceiling and traditional style radiators, a theme flowing through this home.
The bespoke hand-painted kitchen furniture has an inset traditional Belfast sink and some more contemporary additions such as granite work surfaces and the new addition to the Aga family, a time controlled electric range. The quarry-tiled flooring runs through to the comfortable sun room which is glazed to three sides and has French windows leading to the well-maintained garden.
The spacious lounge has a feature stone Minster fireplace with open fire facility and French windows opening to the rear garden for the warmer ones. The dining room to the front is given some seclusion by the specimen olive tree in the garden although this room could easily be used as a fifth bedroom or office.
There are two more double bedrooms to the ground floor. The family bathroom has a four piece suite with Travertine tiling. The utility room is plumbed for an automatic washer and has a stainless steel stink unit and space for a large fridge freezer.
The staircase opens to a wide landing with vaulted ceiling, currently used as an office area. The dual aspect master bedroom has a flat screen television point and walk-in airing closet which also houses the concealed central heating boiler. Tiled flooring leads to the good sized en suite facilities.
Outside: A driveway providing parking for two cars and leading to the single detached garage with pitched slate roof, up-and-over door, power and light. The gardens, once again, are deceptive. The front lawn wraps around the property to the sides and rear with hidden corners. There are patios, a covered seating area and established trees and shrubs. Running alongside the river, the wall has had the addition of a gazebo with perennial climbing shrubs to provide complete privacy.
