Property Description

The Property

5 Kelling Close is a three bedroom detached bungalow, situated in a quiet cul-de-sac within walking distance of Holt town centre.  The property offers spacious accommodation, full of character and charm, featuring a large sitting room with open fire and access to the beautiful rear garden, a separate dining room, recently updated kitchen & family bathroom and a private third bedroom with its own bathroom.  There is also an extensive loft room benefitting from Velux windows, a further garden to the front and off-street parking.

On entering 5 Kelling Close, you are welcomed into the entrance hall, with doors to the sitting room, two double bedrooms, family bathroom and kitchen along with the access hatch up to the loft room.  The entrance hall features parquet flooring which flows through to the sitting room, which is a large and bright room with sliding doors out to the rear garden, boasts a floor to ceiling fitted bookcase, open fire and allows access through to the dining room. 

A lovely feature of this spacious bungalow are the high ceilings, lending an additional feeling of space and light throughout.

The modern kitchen features a number or under counter and full height units, integrated appliances and electric hob.  It is a lovely bright room with windows out to the front.  There are doors at both ends of the kitchen to enable easy access to the dining room and third bedroom and the main entrance hall.  The dining room is flooded with natural light from Velux windows above and windows out to the pretty back garden.  

There are two good sized double bedrooms off the entrance hall, one to the front and the master bedroom to the rear overlooking the garden.  Both are large enough for king size beds and bedroom furniture.  The family bathroom is between these two rooms and has also been recently updated by the current owner and features a large walk-in shower enclosure, WC and wash hand basin.

The final single bedroom is to the front of the property and is a pretty and private room with it's own bathroom.  It is adjacent to the dining room but can also be accessed by a separate external door if required.

The extensive loft is a very useful space, accessed through the loft hatch, via a loft ladder.  It is carpeted, centrally heated with both electric ceiling lights and Velux windows which flood it with natural light.  It is possible to stand in the centre of the room (if you are not too tall!) and the current owner uses it as both office and storage space.  There is even a telephone extension.


5 Kelling Close sits on a good sized plot and benefits from gardens to both the front & rear and a semi-circular gravelled driveway accessed at both sides from the street, with parking for several cars.

The pretty front garden is accessed from the parking area through a small gate and features a culinary herb garden under the kitchen window along with a lawned area and mature planting.  There is access down the side of the property to the rear garden.

The back garden is beautifully planted and a really good size.  There is a patio area immediately behind the property with a charming pergola above providing a lovely spot to relax and enjoy al fresco dining in the warmer months.  There are two garden sheds and the garden itself extends down passed the tended beds and borders to the hidden 'woodland' garden at the end with a secret bench.
