Full description

Hillcroft is a surprisingly spacious individual detached bungalow with extremely adaptable accommodation and a split-level design, suitable for a large family or retirement, with plenty of space for relatives or home working.

There are a total of four bedrooms, or even five if required as well as a very comfortable lounge, superb kitchen/breakfast room and a large family/games room. There is a family shower room which is extremely well fitted and an even more luxurious en-suite bathroom to the master bedroom. Central heating is by gas and the windows are double glazed. Adjoining the kitchen is a superb conservatory addition.

The property has been kept in very good decorative condition and has up to date fixtures and fittings throughout. Some attractive features include a wood burner in the lounge, an interesting gymnasium/bar off the family room, a wonderful farmhouse style kitchen and superb expanses of decking adjoining the main rooms at the rear providing private and sunny areas to sit out in.

There is more than ample parking and a detached double garage block with room over, ideal as an office/studio and perhaps even convertible into a small granny annexe if needed. The surrounding grounds are mature, well stocked yet easy to maintain.

If you are looking for a very spacious residence with extremely adaptable accommodation, then we strongly recommend viewing.

West Hill is an appealing and individual village with a mini-supermarket at its heart, open long hours and including a post office.

Exeter and the M5 (about 8 miles) is easily reached along the new A30 dual carriageway, Honiton with shops and station (Waterloo-Exeter) is about 8 miles and the coast at Sidmouth about 6 miles.
