Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Cheesedown is situated in an enviable location surrounded by glorious Devon countryside yet within a short drive of the thriving market town of Axminster with its extensive range of amenities and facilities including highly regarded primary and secondary schools. The A35 is within easy reach providing swift access to major roads allowing commuting to be a viable option from this wonderful country setting.

The property lends itself to be a comfortable home for both families and retired occupants alike with huge potential to extend in a variety of ways, including a vast loft space which could be converted into additional accommodation if ever required, subject of course to the necessary planning permissions/consents. The well-proportioned accommodation briefly comprises; entrance porch and reception hall with cloakroom W/C and spacious dual aspect sitting room with lovely garden and country outlooks with feature fireplace and wood burning stove. Double doors lead through to the formal dining room with a large serving hatch to the kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen is comprehensively fitted with a range of solid oak cupboards and drawers both at base and eye level and enhanced by attractive granite worktops and integrated appliances including a double oven with induction hob and dishwasher. There is also plenty of room for a family sized breakfast table and chairs. The large utility room offers additional storage and appliance space, along with walk in larder room and gardeners W/C. There is a long hallway serving the five spacious double bedrooms, all with pleasant outlooks and the guest bedrooms benefit from vanity basins whilst the master bedroom is particularly spacious with a dressing area and a large en-suite bathroom. There is also a family bathroom which is fitted with a traditional suite. The property benefits from double glazing throughout, PV and solar panels, along with a modern oil-fired heating system which all help create an efficient home to run.

Axminster is a bustling market town on the eastern fringes of Devon, close to the border with West Dorset and South Somerset.

The beautiful Axe Valley with its renowned bird sanctuary reaches the sea at Seaton (6 miles) and the famed beaches of the World Heritage Jurassic Coast and the resort of Lyme Regis are at a similar distance. Exeter (M5) is 24 miles, and Taunton 20 miles.

Axminster itself offers a selection of shops including two supermarkets, schooling and train station that is on the direct line to London Waterloo and Exeter. It is also home to Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's famous River Cottage.

The property has two driveways which lead to the substantial detached garage with workshop and store rooms, all with light and power and a remote electrically operated main door. This is a significant building which would lend itself to be converted into additional ancillary/annexe accommodation if ever required (STP).

The principal drive is most impressive and certainly creates the 'wow factor' on approach, with stunning views over the gardens and grounds and countryside beyond. The parkland-like gardens will please any keen gardener, bursting with a variety of mature specimen plants, shrubs and trees creating a wonderful show and colour throughout the year.

The grounds extend to 4.85 acres divided to a paddock, copse, fruit cages and large Avery's, this would be a haven for animal lovers/bird enthusiasts.
