About the property
Southwinds is a wonderful detached bungalow, surrounded by beautiful mature gardens, nestled within the pretty hamlet of Bridgehampton. The property offers generously proportioned accommodation throughout with ample opportunity for its newest owners to enhance to their desired specification.
About the inside
On entering the property, there is a great sized entrance hallway which really sets the tone for the size of the accommodation. The hall gives access to all rooms apart from the dining room which is nestled between the sitting room and kitchen. The sitting room which is located at the front of the home has a lovely southerly aspect overlooking farmland and is well proportioned.
Currently the room is set up offering ample seating for sofas, coffee table and freestanding furniture. Linking the kitchen to the sitting room is a dining room, again with the same open outlook which makes for a great place to entertain family and friends with a 6-8 seat dining table and chairs. The kitchen is towards the rear of the bungalow and offers space for a breakfast table which gives flexibility in the room uses. The kitchen is is fitted with a range of wall and base units making it a good size to cook in with an outlook over the fields at the side.
Continuing back from the hallway to the left side you will find the first double bedroom which enjoys views at the front and has a run of built in storage. There is a similar sized double bedroom at the rear with a tranquil outlook to the landscaped gardens. Positioned inbetween these two bedrooms is the family bathroom with a bath, shower, sink, and toilet giving ample areas to remodel if desired. At the rear of the hall is another bedroom which the current owner has set up as a music room with an adjoining single glazed aluminium sunroom.
From the rear porch there is a useful cloaks cupboard, cloakroom and access to the double garage which has power and lighting and an up-and-over garage door.
About the outside
Approaching the property from the driveway, there is ample off-street parking for several vehicles and access to the double garage. The property has been landscaped to provide great outdoor space with a front garden that wraps around to the side of the property which is mainly laid to lawn and is enclosed by a walled front boundary. At the rear, there is a patio seating area, pond, lockable garden shed, lawn and an abundance of mature shrubs and plants. The manicured gardens have been a labour of love and the landscaping really does set this home off. To one side of the garden there is a greenhouse perfect for potting and behind a mature hedge there is a 'working area' with compost bins hidden out of sight.
