Associate, Sarah Cull said: “Troutbeck is an appealing, detached bungalow which has been very well maintained over the years.
“Typical of its age, the property has large windows, making it very light and also making the most of the delightful, far reaching views over adjoining farmland and also its gardens.”
The entrance hall is wide and welcoming with space for some pieces of furniture and a built-in airing cupboard.
The sitting room is a light room with a wide window overlooking the front garden and glazed, double doors which open onto the side garden with good views.
There are built-in bookshelves with storage below and an attractive fireplace with marble surround and hearth and a gas fire set in.
A door leads to the kitchen/breakfast room and this is truly the ‘hub’ of the house.
A light and airy living space with some very appealing views, the room naturally divides into separate areas.
The kitchen has a tiled floor and is fitted with an extensive range of wooden fronted, high and low level storage units, with a built-in range cooker, Miele slimline dishwasher, Neff undercounter fridge, freezer and electric oven.
There is a space and plumbing for a washing machine, space for a 3/4 height fridge and the worktop incorporates a 1½ bowl, stainless steel sink and drainer unit (with mixer taps over) and a Neff, four ring, halogen hob (with extractor hood over).
There is also a built-in breakfast bar, a pantry cupboard, store cupboard, tiled floor and a door to the garden.
A wide archway leads to the living area, which currently doubles up as space for sitting and dining. This is a very successful addition to the property with windows on three sides making the most of the delightful views and a stable door to the garden.
Bedroom one is currently used as a study, and is a good sized, double room with a window overlooking the front garden.
Bedroom two is the principal bedroom and has windows on two sides and two built-in, double wardrobes.
Bedroom three has a wide window overlooking adjoining fields and a range of built-in wardrobes.
The shower room is fitted with a white suite of low level WC, wash hand basin set into a vanitory unit (with light above) and enclosed shower cubicle with Mira mixer shower.
Troutbeck sits in appealing grounds sheltered by mature hedges. There is a gravel parking and turning area which leads to the detached, single garage (20′ x 11’5″).
This has an up and over door, electric light and power and a pedestrian door to the garden.
At the rear of the garage is a workshop with a workbench.
The gardens are a particular delight and surround the property with various, secluded places in which to sit and enjoy the views.
These grounds are laid predominately to lawn, with mature, edging beds containing a variety of flowering plants, shrubs and spring bulbs.
There are also specimen and fruit trees, an outside tap, external power and lighting and a useful garden shed.
The village of Porton has good local amenities including a primary school, post office and shop, a doctor’s surgery, takeaway, hairdressers, garage and both Baptist and Anglican churches.
