A COTTAGE-style, whitewashed bungalow with a lovely garden to match is for sale in the village of Storth, on the Kent Estuary between Arnside and Milnthorpe.

The surprisingly spacious accommodation at 4 Chapel Close includes three double bedrooms - one of them en-suite - and a good-sized lounge with pleasant views.

On the market with Milne Moser for £305,000, this cul-de-sac property has a contemporary bathroom and shower room, uPVC double glazing and gas central heating.

The owners have kept the bungalow in immaculate condition, say the agents, with neutral decor throughout.

They have also added a handy utility room onto the side and there is a useful loft space with rooflight.

Flower borders, shrubs and seating areas make for a pleasant garden, and there is ample parking plus a long driveway leading to a single garage.

The painted wood front door opens into the welcoming hallway/dining room, which would also make an ideal study or home office.

Lovely and light, the lounge has rooftop views over woodland and towards the bay and Lakeland fells. A fossilised stone fire surround houses a living-flame gas fire.

The kitchen is equipped with pale-coloured units, speckled worktops and tiled splashbacks. There is a one-and-a-half bowl sink with drainer, ceramic hob with canopy, electric oven, built-in fridge/freezer and freestanding slimline dishwasher.

The utility room is a very useful addition with fitted units, a stainless steel sink, space for a freezer as well as a washing machine and tumble dryer, shelves and hangers for coats.

The first bedroom offers triple wardrobes and a built-in cupboard with overhead storage housing the hot water cylinder.

A sun tunnel brings natural light into the en-suite shower room, with its white three-piece suite, heated towel rail and tiled walls.

The second bedroom's window faces the back of the bungalow, looking onto woodland, and a double wardrobe supplies plenty of storage.

The third bedroom would also lend itself to being used as a study.

The bathroom, meanwhile, features smartly tiled walls, a pedestal basin, bath with shower over, and a toilet.

Outside, at the front, is an off-road parking space and a driveway running the length of the bungalow, leading to the garage, with its up-and-over door, power and light.

The garden is along the back of the property and features a patio screened by hedges, and a lawn.

A boiler house and tool store houses a Vaillant boiler and there is under-house storage extending to more than 38 feet and equipped with power, water and light.

An archway leads to a lovely mature garden with flowering shrubs, climbers and ornamental trees. There is a garden shed and potting greenhouse to stay.
