A superb example of a contemporary village house with light and airy accommodation.
Originated as a Guidway timber frame bungalow in the mid 1960's, Torridon has been extensively refurbished and additional accommodation added in 2009 by the present owners. Constructed part block, part timber the weather-boarded elevations of Cedar wood complement the multi-gabled tiled roofs and hardwood window and door frames. The flexible layout provides superb and workable family accommodation. The new extension has under floor heating whilst the rest of the house is fed by oil fired radiators.
Curved steps take you up to the entrance door into the spacious hallway which leads to all rooms. Immediately to your left is a study or hobby room with engineered Oak flooring and a vanity unit. Light pours through velux windows into the hall, leading to double glazed doors to the drawing room, which has a wonderful fully glazed wall (with central double doors) overlooking the terrace and rear garden. (There is access to a fitted flue in the ceiling should a woodburner be wanted). The present owners have never felt the necessity to do this as the under floor heating is extremely efficient. There are two ground floor double sized bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room with a second door to the hallway and a separate family bathroom with shower. The superb open living space at the rear of the property with a central wall dividing the kitchen, dining area and sitting room offers contemporary living. The fully fitted, Grant & Webster, kitchen has a comprehensive range of cupboards beneath Iroko wood surfaces and a 4 door Aga cooker with fired earthed splashback tiles. Oak floorboards seamlessly continue through the dining area into the sitting room with French doors to the garden, a contemporary multi-fuel stove creates a warm and cosy living space.
The staircase takes you up to a bright galleried landing. The principal bedroom is quite a 'show stopper' comprising a light and airy bedroom with a large picture window overlooking the garden and wooded copse with fitted wardrobes. There are two further double bedrooms and a separate bathroom with curved bath. A copious size airing cupboard on the landing offers ample storage.
Gravelled drive to the front of the property offers ample parking with a single garage to the side. Extensive shrub and flower borders sweep up to the entrance steps with mature trees and hedging to both sides. To the rear of the property is a fully length terrace edged by a brick and flint wall. The garden is mainly laid to lawn, sloping up to well established flower and shrub borders with steps leading to a summer house. The property is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and on the edge of a Conservation Area.
