A stylish detached four bedroom house, forming part of a small development of quality homes built just over 3 years ago. The house is a level walk to the town centre and a mile from the sea front. Within walking distance are the local primary school and renowned Colyton Grammar school plus bus services to local towns & Exeter.
The property is at the end of a short drive (shared with two others) and benefits from a double garage and block paved private driveway providing parking for 3-4 cars. The well designed accommodation begins at the front, where a pretty tiled roof partially enclosed porch welcomes you to the front entrance. Inside, is a spacious hallway with oak floor and stairs rising to the first floor. Here there are four bedrooms, the master being particularly large with a lovely triangular dormer window offering countryside views and en-suite shower room. Bedroom two is also a generous double with its own en-suite shower room. Both main bedrooms also have extensive built-in wardrobes. The other two good-sized bedrooms share use of the family bathroom.
The ground floor benefits from underfloor heating throughout. There is a useful w.c./utility room with space and plumbing for washing machine and tumble dryer and a door to the double garage, at the back of which is the boiler room, which shares its space with a pressurised hot water cylinder and additional space for storage. Off the hallway is a spacious lounge which has patio doors to the garden. A part-glazed door from the hall leads to a large kitchen/dining area, attractively fitted with granite work surfaces and clever corner units. There is ample space for dining and this room is open to a lovely garden room (adapted from the original conservatory with a fully insulated roof) and sliding patio door to the garden. Outside, at the back is an enclosed garden comprising of two separate spaces, one being a formal garden and the other, a space for growing produce and currently includes a chicken run. This enclosure could easily be adapted to make a children's play area. Being just over 3 years old the property is in excellent order throughout and benefits from energy efficient modern insulation, windows and heating.

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.
