A stunning detached family home, surrounded by beautiful landscaped gardens and situated on a generous plot of approximately a third of an acre. This particularly spacious dormer bungalow has been completely transformed from its original layout, with two large extensions and a loft conversion. The extensions have helped create a sizeable residence, with approximately 2200 square feet of immaculately presented accommodation.
The accommodation is both flexible and practical, an internal inspection is recommended to appreciate what is surely one of Ripon’s finest homes. The current layout would suit family living, but the footprint could easily be adjusted to incorporate an annexe (originally extended for this reason), ideal for incorporating an elderly relative, subject to any necessary consents of course. There is also scope to adjust the layout to give a sixth bedroom, should the new owners wish.
Mallorie Park Drive is one of Ripon’s most sought after streets and the property is approached via Cricket Lane, a quiet lane which services just a small number of properties. With lovely woodland and riverside walks on the door step, the bungalow is just a short walk from the city centre, whilst Ripon’s highly regarded secondary schools, including Ripon Grammar school, are also situated close by.
The 26 foot long garden room is a particular feature, having had a Guardian lightweight solid roof recently fitted, making the space useable all year round. There is also an attractive fireplace with wood burning stove, creating the ideal cosy spot to enjoy the views over the garden.
The kitchen has been fitted to a very high standard, including German cabinetry from Hacker and complementary silestone worksurfaces. Fitted with a range of high end appliances, the kitchen is fully equipped. There are other nice features, including underfloor heating to the rear extension.
To the ground floor there is a cosy living room with double doors leading to the garden room, stylish breakfast kitchen, spacious garden room with tiled floor, utility room which is fitted with a range of high gloss Hacker storage units, hallway, inner hallway with storage and stairs rising to the first floor, master bedroom with dressing room, three further good size ground floor bedrooms, whilst the house bathroom and wet room service the downstairs bedrooms. To the first floor there is a small landing, further bedroom enjoying views over the cricket field and another bathroom, fitted with a white suite. There is also boarded eaves space, providing handy storage and housing the Vaillant (new in 2015) gas central heating boiler.
The property sits on a very good size plot, being tucked away from the road and offering a high degree of privacy. The gardens are undoubtedly a massive feature of the property, with extensive established gardens to the front and rear of the bungalow. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn with hedge and fenced boundaries, whilst there is also an abundance of established plants, shrubs and trees. A large patio area leads off the garden room, ideal for entertaining and enjoying views over the split level garden. High fencing has been erected to aid privacy and security, whilst feature lighting is also in place. To the rear there is a further enclosed garden, with a gate leading to a parking area for several vehicles, there is also potential to house a caravan or motorhome. There is a timber storage shed in place, whilst there is also the scope to add a garage if required, once again subject to necessary consents.
Spacious family homes on plots of this size do not come up for sale often in this highly sought-after area and this deceptive home needs to be viewed internally to be appreciated..
