A detached bungalow set in a lane side location on the outskirts of
Axminster, within beautiful mature gardens of around a quarter of
an acre. The property was originally a Woolaway but has been
extended considerably with block cavity walls leaving only a small
proportion of the original build external. The property has been
well maintained and has the benefit of 16 solar panels, which
generate sufficient income to significantly help the running costs.
Internally, the accommodation comprises, entrance hall, two large
double bedrooms, a bathroom, a living room with inset wood burning
stove, kitchen opening to a large conservatory overlooking the rear
garden and a utility room. A large garage is attached which has the
benefit of an electric roller door to the front and a rear door to
the utility room.
Outside, the entrance to the property is over a tarmac driveway
with ample parking for 3 4 vehicles and a number of mature trees
and shrubs providing privacy from the lane. A pathway runs around
the side of the house providing access to the side and back garden,
which is delightful and a haven for wildlife. The land to the rear
of the garden is a large area of protected woodland, which slopes
away down the hill behind, ensuring privacy and protection from
future development. In the garden are a number of timber
outbuildings, one of which is a large shed at the side of the house
with double doors and a solar panel for light. Most note worthy is
a charming timber summer house garden shed which was a former
Chelsea flower show winner. The property benefits from uPVC double
glazed windows and oil fired central heating, supplemented by the
wood stove in the lounge. The aforementioned solar panels, provide
electricity as well as mains electricity and the Feed In Tariff
generates income, which would be transferred to a new owner.
