A beautifully situated property on the outskirts of Seaton with stunning estuary views. Set in a generous plot of around a third of an acre, this 1940`s detached bungalow would benefit from a certain amount of modernisation and presents the possibility for redevelopment (subject to any necessary consents). With the majority of the garden to the front, the bungalow is set well back from the road and has a sunny south easterly aspect. Internally, the accommodation comprises three bedrooms, a spacious lounge with lovely views, kitchen, bathroom, hallway and cloakroom. At the back of the house is a car port providing parking for one to two vehicles and an area of garden with green house and various sheds. There is double glazing and gas central heating throughout, although both might require updating. The bungalow is of standard cavity construction with a small 1980`s extension and a modern conservatory fitted around 10 years ago. The roof is shingle (as per the original design for this and the neighbouring bungalow). The delightful gardens lie mainly to the front largely laid to lawn with a number of mature trees and flowering shrubs.

Seaton is located at the mouth of the Axe Estuary, a haven for wild fowl, and adjoins the pretty Axmouth harbour. The town offers a range of day to day needs including shops, cafes, doctors, a bank, post office, primary school and even a hospital. The mile long shingle beach features a long level pedestrian promenade overlooking Lyme Bay and surrounding cliffs and forms part of the Jurassic coast, England`s only natural World Heritage site. About 6 miles north along the Axe Valley is the market town of Axminster with a mainline railway station operating services to London Waterloo and Exeter. The delightful coastal town of Lyme Regis is just over 6 miles to the east and the ever popular coastal town of Sidmouth, just under 10 miles to the west.

The property was built in 1946 of block cavity construction with a cedar shingle roof and has been in the current ownership for 30 years. Cavity wall insulation was installed in 2006. The conservatory was erected by Select Windows in 2011 and Select also fitted the car port in 2015. The driveway is owned by the neighbouring property with Pippinfield Cottage having vehicular and pedestrian Right of Way over the drive. During the winter when the trees have shed their leaves, there is an excellent view towards the Estuary but only partial views in the summer.
