With the new by-pass now open, Exeter and the M5 motorway can be reached in half an hour. Torquay train station is only a few minutes away with a mainline service to Paddington via Newton Abbot. Exeter Airport has regular flights to many international and European destinations.

Description - This attractive family home is believed to have been constructed in the 1950s on old Nut Bush Lane, a quiet lane that serves only a few properties, which runs parallel to the Nut Bush Lane of today. The property is in an elevated position and as such benefits from some lovely views over the surrounding area as far as St Marychurch as well as some sea glimpses of Tor Bay. Sitting in a large plot measuring approximately a quarter of an acre the house is well spaced from its neighbours and benefits from a large, gently sloping garden. During the current ownership the property has undergone a programme of improvement and refurbishment to many areas. An early viewing is recommended to appreciate all this fine home has to offer.

Accommodation - A smart brick paved drive leads to the front garden and entrance conservatory with space for informal seating making a lovely quiet room in which to relax. The front door then leads through to the entrance hall where stairs rise to the first floor and doors lead to the reception rooms. Features such as the original doors have been retained, and engineered Oak flooring runs throughout much of the ground floor. The family/ kitchen dining room is a large room with a smart modern kitchen to one end featuring Ivory units above and below a black granite work surface with inset sink. A Stoves 7 burner, 4 oven dual-fuel range cooker sits below a Rangemaster extractor, in addition to an integrated dishwasher and fridge. Views extend over the rear garden and surrounding area. A breakfast bar loosely divides the room and sliding patio doors lead to the rear terrace. The dining area has plenty of space for a family dining table and features a smart Tulp remote control gas fire. Off the kitchen the utility room has a further work surface and Belfast style sink with space for a freezer and plumbing for washing and drying machines, a door leads to the garage and another to the rear garden. The triple aspect sitting room is a light and airy room, also featuring a modern Tulp remote gas fire, with views to the front and rear gardens.
The first floor landing leads to the four bedrooms and family bathroom. The triple aspect master bedroom is of a generous size with fantastic far reaching views including sea glimpses. Bedroom 2 and 3 are double rooms. Bedroom 2 has fitted wardrobes, bedroom 3 is dual aspect and shares the views and sea glimpses. Bedroom 4 has views to the front. The recently refurbished bathroom is fully tiled with tumbled limestone with a walk-in shower, stylish wash basin and WC all with chrome fittings plus a heated towel rail.

Garden & Grounds - One of the main features of this fine home are the extensive gardens which measure approximately a quarter of an acre. To the front is a brick paved parking area leading to the front garden, separated from the lane by stone walling and hedging, leading to a large black limestone paved terrace (100m2) that wraps around the front and one side of the property surrounded by mature trees and shrubs, forming a great area for alfresco dining, BBQs and entertaining, and can be accessed via patio doors from the kitchen. The rear garden gently slopes away from the house with a large area of lawn, interspersed with trees and shrubs, with paved paths leading to various seating areas. To the side behind the garage is a large shed, plus there is useful storage space under the house.
