Description

" A fabulous detached house centrally situated in the pretty village of Whitford, just a mile and a half from the historic little town of Colyton and about 4.5 miles from Axminster. The house, originally built for the bank manager in Colyton, has been transformed in recent years into the bright contemporary home we see today. The house is elevated from the parking area, which offers sufficient parking for 4 cars and provides access to the garage. Central steps with capped walls either side lead up to the front entrance where there is a paved terrace along the front opening to one side into a gravelled area with specimen shrub planting. The front door opens into a generous hallway with stairs leading to the first floor, under stairs storage and a ground floor WC. To one side of the hall is a bright living room with a modern wood burning stove and bi fold doors with integral blinds across the back opening to the garden. On the other side of the hall is a bright, modern kitchen dining room, opening to a utility room and a further reception room, which makes a great home office gym or hobby room.

Upstairs are three double bedrooms, one with a generous en suite shower room and a family bathroom. A side window on the landing makes this and the staircase bright during the daytime. Both bathrooms are fitted with contemporary sanitary ware and tiling.

Outside, there is good access all around the house and the rear garden, whilst not large, is south west facing and has been attractively landscaped with a lower patio and a higher lawned area with shrub planting. There is space along the side of the house for log storage etc.

As mentioned already, the house has been completely refurbished to include a new roof and new boiler and is beautifully presented. Windows are uPVC double glazed and the garden has been landscaped.

Whitford is a pretty village, with a warm and friendly community offering various activities centred around the village hall. Unusually, it also benefits from a regular bus service to Axminster, Colyton and Seaton. The nearby market town of Axminster offers a good range of day to day needs including shopping, doctors. Leisure centre and banking and where there are mainline trains to London Waterloo and Exeter. The beautiful Jurassic Coast town of Lyme Regis is just over 7 miles to the east and Exeter is around 28 miles to the west.
