Sleepy cul-de-sac bungalow is the perfect peaceful spot
T RENTHAM has long enjoyed a reputation for being one of the nicer parts of the city to live in because of its quality properties, good road links, good schools and being a little bit quieter than the hustle and bustle of busier areas. In short, it is a nice place to set up home.
But even by Trentham's standards this property is quiet, and in the words of letting agent, Clive Holdcroft, "an ideal place for a mature couple looking to rent somewhere that is peaceful, safe and relaxed''.
It is certainly all of those. The bungalow at sits at the end of a little cul de sac in Java Crescent which winds its way around part of the Pacific Road estate off New Inn Lane and can be fairly described as being in a sleepy part of the estate. With minimal traffic in front from the handful of other homes at this end of the road and nothing but the Trent and Mersey canal behind, you could hear a pin drop most of the time. As a bonus I know from personal experience, having had a house on that estate myself in Huron Grove, that the towpath is a lovely environment for a walk or a bike ride.
The bungalow is part furnished but has all the essentials fitted so that a tenant could move in straight away. It is in good condition and decorated in neutral tones that will not offend anyone.

Its rooms are bigger than usual and even though it is largely free from furniture and therefore uncluttered, the rooms still strike me as being larger than the norm. Coming in from the entrance porch which is on the side of the property, you turn first into a fitted kitchen which is filled with light from the French doors at the end and the windows above the sink.
The kitchen has all the appliances ready and waiting to be used, and there is an integrated oven, hob, dishwasher and fridge freezer and an automatic washing machine too. With light coloured wood effect laminate flooring and a similar hue on the worktops this is a room which glows and has a very warm feel.
Next to it is a large lounge with a three piece suite and a feature fireplace with an electric fire in it. The bungalow is obviously very warm thanks to its gas central heating and uPVC double glazing throughout, but it is always nice to have a glowing fire. Like the kitchen, this room looks out on to the back garden and the view through the large window is a picture and also like the kitchen, it continues the laminate flooring theme.
The main bedroom, a big double, has a large fitted wardrobe at one end and even though it overlooks the front and the driveway, it still has a pleasant hush. As I said this is a sleepy part of the estate!
There is a second bedroom, another double, and a large and beautifully tiled bathroom. This has a big and modern corner shower cubicle, but the eye-catcher here is the tiling for the walls are clad up to half their height with decorative, sea blue tiles and the floor is tiled too. Whoever did this work obviously knew their job because the fit is excellent.
O utside there is a block paved driveway so you can park the car off the road, and that leads to a brick built single garage which has electrics. There is a gravel garden at the front which is designed to be low maintenance, and behind the house is quite a large back garden which, as you might have gathered by now, looks very quiet and peaceful.
The bungalow is on the rental market at £625 pcm.
Clive says: "This will make an ideal property for a mature couple who may have moved to the area for work reasons or someone looking to rent accommodation.
"It is a quiet spot and tenants who value that will find this location ideal in that respect.
"Trentham is a desirable location and with the canal alongside and its private, secluded nature this bungalow is in one of its best spots.''
