Description - With stunning sea views towards Meadfoot Beach and Tor Bay, as well as the ever changing colours of the wooded Ilsham Valley, this fabulous waterside home has a lot to offer. Thought to have been constructed in the 1960s the property has been thoughtfully updated during the current ownership, and today is presented to a high standard. Traditionally constructed and laid out over three levels, there are spacious reception rooms, including a family kitchen/dining room, sitting room, and study/snug to the ground floor. Both the sitting room and dining room access the balcony. To the first floor are four bedrooms, two of which have en suite facilities. The lower ground floor has a further useful room and accesses the garden.

Accommodation - Approached across the gravel driveway passing the detached double garage, the front door leads to the reception hall where stairs rise to the first floor. Immediately off to the right, and open to the hall, is a flexible room that could be used as a study or snug, a large window looks to the front and provides plenty of light, a door to the rear gives access to a cloakroom/wc where there is also plumbing for a washing machine. Down a short flight of stairs are the remaining reception rooms. The sitting room is L shaped and has a feature fireplace with brick surround, glazed patio doors lead to the balcony with views over Ilsham Valley looking to the coastline above Meadfoot Beach with Tor Bay beyond, glazed patio doors also lead to the front garden. The open plan kitchen/dining/ family room is loosely divided into the three areas. The kitchen is a modern affair with granite effect tops, dark wood effect units with an island unit to the centre incorporating the gas hob and breakfast bar. Built in double oven, integrated appliances including fridge, freezer and dishwasher. The dining area leads to another space with glazed patio doors leading to the balcony, with space for table and chairs for alfresco dining, this space could be used for more informal seating and has stairs leading down to the lower ground floor. Here there is a useful room with many uses such as family room, playroom or media room, off which is the boiler and storage room. Patio doors lead to a terrace and the garden beyond.
To the first floor are four bedrooms. The master bedroom to the rear benefits from the terrific sea views, and views over the Ilsham valley, and also has an en suite bathroom.
