An attractive detached bungalow, estimated to have been built in the 1950's or 1960's, set in a generous plot of around one third of an acre. The property is situated in a lane of varied, mainly detached homes close to the well regarded Colyton Grammar School. The bungalow has been in the same ownership for a number of years and would benefit from modernisation, offering the potential for slight re-arrangement of the rooms, possibly a loft conversion or enlargement (subject to consents).
Currently, the accommodation comprises: two large double bedrooms, a Jack and Jill bathroom (one door to the master bedroom and the other to the hall), spacious entrance hall, lounge with stone fireplace and large bay window, opening to a dining room with French door to the garden, kitchen, further w.c. and utility cupboard along with a garage and a hobby room/workshop behind.
Windows are a mixture of original Crittal with secondary glazing along with some double glazed uPVC. There is gas hot air central heating. Many of the floors (i.e. the hall, lounge and dining room) have wood block flooring in very good condition.
At the front of the property is a gated driveway providing parking for 2-3 vehicles, which could be extended if desired. The garage is a good size and there is a useful covered area between the bungalow and the garage/workshop with doors to the garden at the back and the driveway at the front. The garden is sort of a wedge shape, the plot extending to around one third of an acre, well stocked with a large variety of mature flowering shrubs and trees. The garden lies mainly to the south west of the property and provides a good deal of privacy.

The garden is very private bordered by a mature shrub hedge and trees. Most of the garden lies to the south and west of the property and as a result enjoys a good deal of sunshine. There is a paved seating area beside the lounge and dining room. The garden is very well stocked through years of planting with a large variety of shrubs and trees including Amelanchier, several Camelias, Rhododendrons and a Mimosa. Planting beds are currently bright with spring bulbs. There is a mature Oak tree on the west side of the garden. Half way along the back is a small summer house, beyond which is a hidden path which leads behind mature shrubs to a shed and greenhouse. The plot is a good size, being around one third of an acre in all.

All mains services are connected. Water is metered.
