Marsh Green is a pretty hamlet made up of a variety of interesting properties, only a mile or so from the village of West Hill in a rural setting but particularly accessible. There is easy access to both old and new A30 major roads; making the M5, Exeter and Honiton all within easy reach. Exeter Airport is just a short drive away and the nearby village of Whimple has a railway station connecting Exeter and London Waterloo. There is a bus route and a local shop in West Hill. The coastal Regency town of Sidmouth is also a short drive away.

This former Chapel was built in the 1890s known then as 'The Mission Church of St Andrew'. This historic and interesting building has been converted and renovated to create a charming family home enjoying the character of a period house along with modern fixtures and fittings. The well-proportioned and highly versatile accommodation briefly comprises; entrance porch with Victorian arch leaded multi-glazed double doors leading through to a dual aspect sitting room with feature fireplace with inset multi-fuel/wood burning stove. Double doors lead through to an impressive kitchen/dining room which is certainly the heart of the home, being well appointed with a range of oak effect cupboards and drawers both at base and eye level whilst integrating modern appliances. There is plenty of room for a family sized dining table and chairs and an additional snug area provides a perfect environment for families to cook, dine and socialise together. There is an inner hallway with a cloakroom/WC and access to the large ground floor dual aspect double bedroom with built in wardrobes. The ground floor is enhanced by attractive Victorian herring bone timber flooring throughout.

On the first floor are three good sized bedrooms, with the master benefiting from a spacious en-suite facility. The family shower room is also fitted with a modern stylish white suite.

The property benefits from Solar PV panels generating electric, cavity wall insulation, a highly efficient oil fired boiler and PVC double glazing throughout, all making for a very economic home.

To the outside, the property is approached via double timber five bar gates which lead onto a substantial driveway providing off road parking for several vehicles and access to the detached double garage with light and power and electrically operated up and over door.

The gardens and grounds are a lovely size; around a quarter of an acre and predominantly laid to lawn and bordered by mature hedging and trees. A paved patio area provides plenty of room to enjoy outdoor dining/entertaining in this lovely setting.
