A fabulous, extensively enlarged detached house on a good sized plot centrally situated in the village of Musbury, about 3.5 miles inland from the sea and the pretty Axmouth Harbour. The accommodation has recently been completed and finished to a high standard comprising: entrance hall leading to a beautiful large L shaped lounge with doors to the garden and a modern multi-fuel stove, newly fitted kitchen, lobby leading to the utility room and cloakroom and door to the large garage; off the lounge is a door leading to another hallway, bathroom with bath and shower, ground floor double bedroom and garden room (this area would make an ideal self-contained annexe for a dependent relative). Stairs from the lounge lead to the first floor where there are three double bedrooms, the master being a lovely big room with en-suite bathroom and a further family bathroom off the landing. There are lovely westerly views from the first floor. Outside, there is a driveway leading to the garage and providing parking for 2-3 vehicles. The garden surrounds the property on the remaining three sides with the largest section at the back, where there is also a very useful double gated entrance. The property benefits from double glazing and gas central heating. Virtually all fittings are newly installed so the property feels like a brand new house.
Musbury village offers many facilities within a short walk of the property, including a shop and post office, petrol station and car repairs, village pub, Church, primary school and regular bus services. The village offers easy access to nearby towns, the railway station at Axminster, 3 miles away, (with trains to London Waterloo and Exeter) and good road links. For those who enjoy walking, Musbury is well positioned with some very good walks from the door step, in particular the walk up to Musbury Castle, an Iron Age Hill fort from where there are great views over the Axe Valley.

East Devon District Council. Band D. Currently £1,927.77 (2019/20). N.B. may be re-rated following change of ownership.
The property was extended on behalf of the owners but a change of circumstances now forces the sale. A great deal of work was carried out alongside the extension, which means that the boiler, hot water cylinder and all associated works are just about a year old. Window and doors are all uPVC double glazed. The property is being offered with no onward chain.
N.B. The EPC was carried out prior to the extension/improvement work and does not reflect the updated status. A new EPC has been requested.
