Property Summary

Available with NO ONWARD CHAIN and enjoying a substantial corner plot, including large enclosed gardens and a superb and generously sized garage/workshop; this detached bungalow is located in Bishopstoke within easy reach of Eastleigh, Fair Oak and Southampton.

Equipped with a programmable, gas-fired central heating system and double-glazing throughout, the interior briefly comprises a large living room, separate kitchen, a spacious conservatory, house bathroom and two double bedrooms. A large detached garage/workshop is also located to the rear.

Amenities close by include a number of good schools and easy public transport links, as well as a couple of pubs, a convenience store, an off-licence and Post Office.

INTERIOR

RECEPTION HALL:

The covered, glass-panelled front door opens onto a reception hall which benefits from subtle décor complementing a solid-wood floor and a coat rack already attached to the wall to the left.

Solid- wood internal doors from here lead through to the living room ahead and the bathroom and master bedroom to the right. Warmth in winter is provided by a traditional-style, wall-mounted column radiator.

LIVING ROOM:
17’ 11” (5.47m) x 10’ 10” (3.31m)

Comfortably large enough to accommodate both soft furnishings and a dining table and chairs, the spacious living room enjoys plenty of natural light through east-facing casement windows. The solid-wood floor continues through from the reception hall with warmth in winter provided by a wall-mounted radiator.

The room also includes an eye-catching and traditional cast-iron feature fireplace framed by heat-resistant decorative tiles.

Power sockets and a TV point are located either side of the black marble hearth with solid-wood doors leading through to the kitchen and the second double bedroom.

KITCHEN:
15’ 2” (4.63m) x 8’ 10” (2.70m)

The kitchen is contemporary in design and layout and boasts a breakfast bar on one side with plenty of wood-finish base and wall units offering storage around the remaining three sides of the room.

Integrated appliances include a fridge, electric oven and grill and a four-ring gas hob beneath an extractor, which is located in a recessed and fully-tiled alcove at the end of the room.

Plumbing for a washing machine and a one-and-a-half bowl stainless steel sink and drainer located beneath additional, three-panel casement windows.

The floor is fitted with dark-grey, slate-effect tiles with light after dark provided by an adjustable, overhead spotlight array. A glass-panelled door from the kitchen opens onto the conservatory.

CONSERVATORY:
14’ 9” (4.50m) x 10’ 4” (3.16m)

Fitted with flooring to match the kitchen, the conservatory provides considerable extra space which could be used as a dining room, hobby room, home office or even as a fitness suite.

Exposed brick walls incorporate power points and uplighters as well as a integral cat flap. Doors on two sides open onto the timber-decked patio in the rear garden, adding to the considerable sense of space when left open in the summer months.

BEDROOM 1:
12’ 4” (3.75m) x 12’ 0” (3.65m)

The larger of the two bedrooms overlooks the front of the property through three-panel casement windows and is currently decorated a bright white. The room includes carpets and a wall-mounted radiator for warmth.

BEDROOM 2:
10’ 3” (3.12m) x 8’ 8” (2.64m)

Accessed from the living room, Bedroom 2 is to the rear of the property and includes windows opening into the conservatory. Warmth is provided by a wall-mounted radiator while the room also includes a substantial double wardrobe unit also incorporating overhead lockers and an integral dressing table.

BATHROOM:
7’ 6” (2.28m) x 6’ 0” (1.84m)

The striking, art-deco-style bathroom includes a tiled black-and-white, chequerboard floor with gloss-finish ceramic wall tiles on all four sides. These are highest around the claw-footed bath tub which also incorporates centrally-mounted, lever-operated taps with a shower attachment above.

The pedestal hand basin sits below a mirrored medicine cabinet, adjacent to a pull-chain WC complete with overhead cistern. Frosted casement windows allow plenty of natural light, although light after dark is provided by a crystal-cube-effect overhead array. A pleasing contrast to the black and white theme is provided by pastel-green sections of wall above the ceramic tiles.

EXTERIOR

Enjoying a substantial corner plot at the junction of Stoke Park Road and St Mary’s Road, the bungalow is surrounded by enclosed gardens on three sides, with access from the former via a wrought-iron gate.

A flagstone path from here leads between a boundary hedge and adjacent lawn to the covered front door, located on the left-hand side of the property.

Decorative gravel beds wrap around the right-hand side of the bungalow between a low sleeper wall separating the grounds from the pavement on St Mary’s Road. The larger rear garden can then be accessed from here.

A timber deck, ideal for al-fresco dining or entertaining in the summer months, surrounds the conservatory extension. Privacy is ensured by head-high timber fence panels which line the boundaries of the rear garden on all three sides.


A path leads from the patio across lawns to double glass-panelled doors opening into a large garage/workshop. This building can also be accessed through an up and over garage door located via a dropped kerb off St Mary’s Road.

The garden space between the conservatory and garage/workshop is approximately 14m x 8m.

LOCATION

As the name implies, Stoke Park Road leads from Church Road to the woods of Stoke Park on the edge of the suburb of Bishopstoke, which lies about six miles north-east of central Southampton.

The tree-lined street comprises a mix of larger detached and semi-detached properties with Bluestar buses running regularly to Eastleigh, Fair Oak and Southampton.

However, amenities within easy reach include a convenience store incorporating an off-licence and a Post Office, a fish-and-chips shop, a hairdresser’s and a beauty salon. The dog- and child-friendly Angler’s Inn on the banks of the River Itchen is also relatively close along with a Toby Carvery off Fair Oak Road.

Trains from nearby Eastleigh include CrossCountry, GWR, South Western and Southern services to Bournemouth, Winchester, Salisbury, Portsmouth, Brighton, Romsey and London Waterloo. For those interested in travel further afield, destinations available from Southampton Airport include UK cities and European holiday resorts.

Schools close by include Wyvern College, Stoke Park Junior School and Crestwood Community School which were all rated as 'good' by Ofsted following their last inspections in 2019 and 2018 respectively.
