Sold STC £795,000

Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An imposing and individual detached house, set within an extremely private plot of 1½ acres. Troodos enjoys a semi- rural location on the outskirts of Budleigh Salterton, with an elevated but sheltered aspect that affords superb views over the town and along the East Devon coastline.

The accommodation is well planned and has retained several attractive features, including a number of double aspects, whilst the mature gardens are well stocked with a variety of interesting trees and shrubs. However, it is likely a full program of refurbishment is required, inside and out, in order to fulfil the property’s potential and restore the house to its former glory.

Castle Lane is in an attractive country lane, about 1 Ό miles from Budleigh Salterton town centre. It allows direct access onto a footpath to Knowle Village and to West Down Beacon which leads over the renowned East Devon Golf Course to the coastal path about Ύ mile distant. A short way down the lane there is access to a cycle path towards Budleigh Salterton which also provides access to Exmouth.
