With regards to viewing properties, please bear in mind that there will be strict controls in how we do this. Viewings can only be carried out where there are no vulnerable occupants in a property and where no viewers (or agent) are showing any symptoms. More than one person (but only from the same household and no children) will be allowed inside the property and viewers will need to bring their own mask and gloves and be asked not to touch anything during the viewing. Social distancing will have to be observed as much as possible. Please only view if you are sure the house might be 'the one' for you. Thank you for your understanding!
This property deserves the description 'tardis' as, from the outside, it appears to be a similar sized detached bungalow as its neighbours. With a driveway and garage to the side of the house, the plot appears to be quite a good width (and maybe slightly larger than its neighbours) but what is not apparent is the larger kitchen, lounge, three bedrooms, two bathrooms and huge basement rooms which offer a great deal more accommodation and flexibility than most others along this road. There is further potential to enlarge the basement area if desired (subject to consents). At ground level (roadside) an entrance hall leads in to what is quite a normal layout for a bungalow with three double bedrooms, one with en-suite shower room, family bathroom, lounge with wood burning stove and doors leading onto the terrace from where there are fabulous sea and estuary views, and a spacious kitchen/diner which also has fantastic views. A door off the hallway opens to a staircase leading down to the lower ground floor, where there is a large room, which could be ideal for hobbies/workshop/home office/gym/playroom etc and then on to a further large utility room, where the boiler, washing machine etc are situated. A door from here leads to a conservatory which opens onto the garden. The garden is very pleasant and quite private, mainly laid to gravel interspersed with shrub planting and climbers and a greenhouse. It is mainly level except to the side where the land slopes up towards the back of the garage. The property is double glazed throughout and has gas central heating.
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.
