Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A beautifully presented detached bungalow situated in a generous sized plot with a lovely garden and plenty of parking. The property is in a pleasant lane side location within the village of Colyford and near to the very highly regarded Colyton Grammar School. The welcoming accommodation has large windows providing plenty of light and comprises hallway, spacious lounge, kitchen leading to the dining/conservatory, a utility room, double bedroom with en-suite shower room, two further double bedrooms and family bathroom. Part of the garage has been converted to an office with a window to the back garden providing a lovely outlook. As the plot is wide as well as being quite long, there is potential to extend if required (subj. to consents). There is a gravelled driveway at the front providing lots of parking as well as additional lawned garden and a beautiful Magnolia tree. Hedging to the front provides good screening from the quiet lane. The back garden is fully enclosed and south facing with a good expanse of lawn and mature hedge screening providing privacy without being intrusive. A spacious gravel and paved area covered by a Pergola stretches along the back of the house. There is a large summer house at the back of the garden, positioned to enjoy the evening sunshine. The property is double glazed with gas central heating.
