Tenure: Freehold

A superb detached chalet bungalow which has recently been extended and remodelled with energy efficiency in mind, set in generous grounds of about 3/4 of an acre

The Property
Wrens Nest is an attractive detached chalet bungalow which is located in a tucked away position in the heart of the village and sits well within its grounds which approach 0.75 acre. It enjoys delightful views over its gardens which are both quiet and private. The property has been the subject of a comprehensive programme of remodelling and enlargement by the current owners which has included a large extension and a loft conversion within the last five or so years. This has resulted in creating the well-proportioned and well-appointed home we find today. It has also been designed with efficiency in mind and has an air source heat pump which fuels underfloor heating to part of the ground floor, photovoltaic panels, as well as high insulation grade building materials. It has well presented accommodation which has been thoughtfully designed and is particularly adaptable in its layout, potentially offering four bedrooms. The principal of which is on the ground floor and is a large room with both a dressing area and en-suite bath/shower room. Worthy of particular mention is the contemporary kitchen which has delightful views over the garden and room to dine. Also worthy of note is the sitting room and this has two sets of French doors opening onto the large covered veranda and a woodburning stove.

Gardens and Grounds
The property is approached from the lane over a driveway which leads to a 5-bar gate into a large turning area which provides parking for many vehicles. A bridge gives access over a small stream to the gardens which have been beautifully landscaped and planted over the past few years and comprise areas of lawn which are interspersed with profusely stocked flower and shrub beds with wide, angled steps leading to a further area of lawn which has been planted with a variety of trees. Adjacent to the property is a large detached barn which is semi-insulated and incorporates a study area as well as a utility which houses the workings for the air source heat pump. There is also a variety of garden sheds and greenhouses as well as a productive kitchen garden with raised beds.

Wrens Nest is situated in the heart of the village of Whitford which in turn is located on the western banks of the River Axe, amongst some of East Devon's most attractive rolling countryside in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Whitford has a church and village hall and there is a shop/post office and public house close at hand (about 1 mile) in the village of Musbury. Whitford is conveniently located only a few miles from the busy market town of Axminster, as well as being only 5 miles from the Lyme Bay coastline, a World Heritage site known as the Jurassic Coast. The pretty and desirable town of Colyton, with its beautiful Medieval Church is only 1 ¼ miles away and offers a comprehensive range of shopping and recreational amenities including a library and doctors surgery. The renowned Colyton Grammar School, one of the country's top mixed state schools is a further mile or so.
