An attractive detached Edwardian property (comprehensively upgraded in recent years), situated very close to the centre of this pretty and historic little East Devon town with lovely views from the first and second floor windows.

The accommodation comprises two first floor bedrooms, recently re-fitted family bathroom, two large second floor bedrooms, spacious sitting room with bay window and multi-fuel stove, dining room, kitchen, conservatory and a ground floor extension providing further accommodation including a bathroom, which is currently used as a treatment room but could be used as an annexe or a spacious study/play room.

The property has recently been upgraded with new double glazed windows, beautifully re-fitted bathroom and the boiler having been moved to a more practical location.
