This lovely detached home sits at the heart of the pretty village of Beckermet which is popular with families thanks to its high-regarded primary school.

The bungalow in Station Crescent has been transformed by its current owners and now provides a delightful home which blends character and contemporary style.

A superb newly-built open-plan dining kitchen is the hub of this home and is ideal for the demands of today’s families.

A pitched roof, Velux windows and French doors to the garden help flood the room with light, creating a beautiful living area.

The kitchen is fitted with matching wall and floor units in a gloss finish complemented by solid wood work surfaces, a quality Neff oven and hob with extractor, integrated dishwasher and a breakfast bar.

A good-sized sitting room - almost 24ft by 12ft - is warmed by a Marso woodburning stove set in a fireplace with oak mantel. Steps lead up to a snug area and wooden flooring unites these two areas.

The four bedrooms share the four-piece bathroom and the internal layout is completed by a hallway and utility room with plumbing.

Externally, the front garden has a raised decked balcony with newly planted borders and gravelled seating area.

The rear has a lawn area leading out from the French doors, and a raised decked area. A driveway and single garage provide parking.

The house is for sale at £295,000 from PFK Estate Agents, tel. 01946 695535.
