A detached bungalow set in a lane-side location on the outskirts of Axminster, within beautiful mature gardens of around a quarter of an acre. The property was originally a Woolaway but has been extended in places with block cavity walls. The property has been well maintained and has the benefit of 16 solar panels, which generate sufficient income to significantly help the running costs. Internally, the accommodation comprises, entrance hall, two large double bedrooms, a bathroom, a living room with inset wood burning stove, kitchen opening to a large conservatory overlooking the rear garden and a utility room. A large garage is attached which has the benefit of an electric roller door to the front and a rear door to the utility room.
Outside, the entrance to the property is over a tarmac driveway with ample parking for 3-4 vehicles and a number of mature trees and shrubs providing privacy from the lane. A pathway runs around the side of the house providing access to the side and back garden, which is delightful and a haven for wildlife. The land to the rear of the garden is a large area of protected woodland, which slopes away down the hill behind, ensuring privacy and protection from future development. In the garden are a number of timber outbuildings, one of which is a large shed at the side of the house with double doors and a solar panel for light. Most note-worthy is a charming timber summer house/garden shed which was a former Chelsea flower show winner. The property benefits from uPVC double glazed windows and oil fired central heating, supplemented by the wood stove in the lounge. The aforementioned solar panels, provide electricity (as well as mains electricity) and the Feed In Tariff generates income, which would be transferred to a new owner.
