A fantastic opportunity to acquire this lovely detached family property which is superbly located in the sought-after and highly desirable area of Old Tiverton Road, where tranquility meets convenience. It's on the market for the first time since its construction in 1967, having been owned, enjoyed and maintained by the family for nearly 60 years. Enjoy our virtual tour video.

Entering the front door leads to a welcoming spacious entrance hall with a pretty stained glass window, as you lead up the staircase to the first floor. The light and spacious living room is at the heart of this lovely home with a very large window to the rear aspect, overlooking the spectacular garden and far reaching views over parts of Crediton. The living room also offers a stone facade open fireplace with fitted gas fire.

Leading off the entrance hall is a separate dining room which has patio doors that lead out onto a small veranda. The dining room is an ideal space to enjoy family meals or to stand on the veranda to enjoy a morning coffee or evening glass of wine whilst overlooking the stunning garden and wide and distant views.

The large kitchen leads off the dining room and has a doorway that steps down into a small hallway with a labyrinth of additional spaces to include a separate and convenient downstairs W.C. and a practical utility room, which has plumbing for a washing machine. Off this hallway is a door to the enclosed handy lean-to which has a large window overlooking, and external door leading down to, the rear garden. A second doorway leads off from the lean-to into a separate storage room to the rear of the first garage.

On the first floor, there are four bedrooms, three doubles and one single, with bedrooms one, two and three having built-in wardrobes. The master bedroom is a lovely size, and has the added benefit of an outlook over the impressive rear garden and far reaching views, as do bedrooms two and four.

The family bathroom has the original suite from 1967, with the added benefit of a mains shower, heated towel rail and storage cupboard.

Outside, the front garden greets you with a lovely lawn, mature trees, shrubs and level hedging providing privacy from the already quiet Old Tiverton Road. The front garden has two gate entrances, one to the parking area, first garage and access to the house and the second providing side access to the rear garden and second garage.

The south easterly facing rear garden really is the pièce de résistance of this fantastic property, setting a picturesque scene. This secluded haven of greenery features mature split level grassed lawn with timber sleepers, trees, shrubs, vibrant flower beds, well kept hedging, paved pathways and established fish pond. There is a large patio immediately to the rear that offers the perfect outdoor retreat for relaxation or entertainment and all day sunshine. The garden enjoys a lovely partial wooded outlook that provides privacy. This superb garden has been meticulously maintained by the same gardener for over 20 years.

In addition to the garage to the front of the property, there is also a second garage at the rear of the house, a timber garden shed and quaint crawl space (with lighting) beneath the house itself, providing lots of versatile storage space.

The property is in need of modernisation and has amazing scope and potential to extend and alter (subject to the requisite consents). It's a great house which has been much loved by the same family for nearly 60 years, in a sought after location and sold with no onward chain. Viewing early is highly recommended.
