Easy Living in a Countryside setting.....

In today’s property market, single storey living usually means living in an apartment, which makes the three new homes at Woodcroft by Bewley Homes in Witley a rarity.

Bungalows ceased to be popular when the pressure on land meant that housing densities had to be increased. To get more space, the only way was up – be it apartment buildings or three or four  storey houses.

At Woodcroft, not only are the new three bedroom bungalows very spacious but they enjoy large gardenstoo – even more rare!

The new homes are set in the middle of the development and are shielded by two smaller homes that front the road. With the popular towns of Godalming just six minutes away by car (3 miles) and Haslemere around eleven minutes away (5.5 miles), it’s the chance to combine the best of both worlds; lovely countryside and practical urban amenities.

Mark Taylor of selling agent Clarke Gammon Wellers said: “I can’t remember when we last had brand new bungalows to sell; many people only think about bungalows when they have to downsize. Why wait till then? Enjoy all the benefits and low maintenance of a brand new home but know it’s flexible enough to last a lifetime! We often see buyers who are not looking for single storey living for themselves but often need a ground floor guest room or annexe for a parent who lives with them – these homes can solve that dilemma

A view home is nearing completion and there is already strong interest in two of the homes. Offering between 1,331 and 1,423 sq ft of living space and set within gardens of between a quarter and a third of an acre, it’s easy to see why these homes stand out from the crowd.

The homes enjoy a particularly large garden frontage – there’s an overall sense of space – and the homes themselves exude a traditional exterior with a recessed front door framed by decorative arched brickwork. Pretty multi-paned double glazed windows add to the cottage style ambience. All three homes enjoy a high level of privacy at the rear; their well-proportioned rooms enjoy plenty of
light afforded by both French doors and bi-folding doors to both sitting rooms and kitchen/breakfast rooms which extends the living space onto the large patios in warmer weather.

The living rooms are particularly spacious, two are over 20ft in length, and the third is over 25ft. A fireplace provides each with a focal point.

The kitchen/breakfast rooms have been well designed to deliver a comprehensive range of appliances while leaving plenty of space for a dining table. Granite worksurfaces provide a touch of luxury while an ‘island bar’ provides both an aesthetic divide between the kitchen and dining area as well as an additional place to enjoy quick informal meals. The two ovens are at a practical eye-level height while integrated appliances include a washing machine, dishwasher, gas hob, fridge and freezer.

In two of the houses, the three bedrooms are all large enough for double beds with fitted wardrobes to both the second and master bedroom; the latter also has an ensuite shower room. A bathroom serves the two guest bedrooms. In all houses, the flexible arrangement of these rooms means that the third bedroom could easily be used as a study or formal dining room if preferred.

Each home enjoys plenty of parking; two have the benefit of a single or double garage while the third has two designated parking spaces.
