Set in a rural location in a small hamlet is this detached, extended bungalow with four bedrooms, two garages and a large garden. Extended in recent years the property is lovely and spacious, has central heating and is beautifully presented throughout. Conveniently located, it is only a short drive from the city of Exeter and the new development of Cranbrook, with its co-op and other facilities.

A white five-bar gate allows access to this beautiful family home and a driveway sweeps up to the side of the house, past an extensive pebble rockery punctuated by all kinds of plants and shrubs. A monkey puzzle tree makes an interesting feature beside the front lawn and log-edged gravel surround with colourful flowering fuchsias and hydrangea. The entrance, below a large storm porch, opens into the modern open-plan kitchen/dining room. A wonderful room, it is light and airy and has wonderful views of the garden from the sliding patio doors; a fabulous dining space be it breakfast lunch or dinner or for family celebrations. The kitchen is well-equipped too. Plenty of dark, marble-effect worktops with a built in halogen hob, with a stainless extractor hood above and a sink beneath the window. Oak-fronted kitchen cupboards with matching eye-level cabinets, complete with pelmet lighting, provide ample storage, with a double oven built in. A large matching island provides more storage and food preparation space. A utility room, has more work surfaces with another sink, and there is space and plumbing beneath for a washing machine and other appliances.

The living room feels welcoming and comfortable, with thick carpets underfoot and an abundance of natural light pouring in from windows on three sides. An elegant fireplace with a polished marble hearth and solid oak mantel, makes a nice feature and focal point for the room. Also on the ground floor is a nice family bathroom containing a bath, with a shower and curtain above, a WC and a wash hand basin, all modern and matching in white.

There are three bedrooms, all doubles, and nice and light. One of which is used as a separate dining room at present, but could just as easily make a great study/bedroom.

A staircase leads up to an airy landing, with a light tube in the ceiling and the master bedroom. Another large double with two dormer windows that fill the room with light. There are two wardrobes and a door to the rear of the largest provides access to extensive storage space in the eaves. A door leads into the superb ensuite bathroom. A spacious room with polished porcelain floor tiles that give it a contemporary feel and well designed, it contains a large shower, a bidet, WC and his and hers basins.

Outside, the patio doors open onto a low-maintenance area of decking and gravel bordered by decorative timber fencing. A fantastic outside dining or entertaining space, perfect for social get-togethers, family barbecues, or for simply relaxing with a glass of your favourite and enjoying the rural surroundings. A large lawn extends to the distant hedgerow and is a great open space for children to play and could equally be used as a paddock for those with equestrian interests. One of the two garages could also be converted to a stable, subject to the necessary approvals, plenty of options.
