A striking and very spacious detached house set in a private plot within the village of Whitford in East Devon. The property is an individual 1980`s house with excellent room sizes throughout. The accommodation (measuring over 2,000 square feet) comprises very large master bedroom with built-in wardrobes and en-suite bathroom, two further double bedrooms, large family bathroom and a fabulous galleried landing; hallway with turning staircase and ample room for desk/study area, w.c., lounge with fireplace and double doors opening to the dining room, which has patio doors to the garden and leads on to the large kitchen/breakfast room, beyond which is a utility room housing the central heating boiler and providing ample space for washing machine etc. From the breakfast room, a door leads to the integral double garage which has electronic up and over door to the front. Outside, there is driveway parking with gated front access and a very private rear garden which is bounded by a small stream. Internally, the house is dated and would benefit from modernisation in terms of kitchen, bathrooms, carpets and redecoration throughout. However, the property is in very good external order with relatively new uPVC double glazing throughout. Central heating is oil fired.
Whitford is a pretty village, just 1.5 miles from Colyton and 4.5 miles from the market town of Axminster, where there are mainline trains to London Waterloo and Exeter. It is also only 7.7 miles from the beautiful Jurassic Coast town of Lyme Regis. The village has a warm and friendly community with various activities centred around the village hall. Unusually, it also benefits from a regular bus service to Axminster, Colyton and Seaton.
