This beautifully presented and well maintained family home has been in the same ownership for the past 22 years. During that time the house has been substantially extended and modernised to create a spacious five bedroom home, traditionally constructed and thoughtfully laid out over two levels. The property takes in some lovely sea views over Lyme bay to the east Devon coast, and from some rooms Tor Bay also, as well as the ever changing colours of the wooded Ilsham Valley. Steps from a terrace off the sitting room lead to the attractive level garden, and to the front there is plenty of driveway parking.ACCOMMODATION
The modern composite front door has glazed panels either side helping flood the hallway with light, stairs rise to the first floor galleried landing. The kitchen/breakfast room has a comprehensive range of cream units above and below the black granite work surfaces which lead to a breakfast bar peninsular that loosely divides the room. There is an eye level oven/grill and microwave, and a ceramic hob below an extractor hood. The fridge/freezer and dishwasher are both integrated. There is room for a sizeable breakfast table, windows to two aspects look to the front of the property and allow in plenty of natural light. The generously sized sitting room is to the rear of the house and benefits from the fabulous views over the wooded slopes of the Ilsham Valley and across Lyme Bay to the East Devon coast. Glazed patio doors open the room to the terrace, and there is a stove style gas fire. Glazed doors with glazed panels either side allow you open the sitting room to the formal dining room which has plenty of space for dining furniture, coal effect gas fire and window to the front. The large utility room is accessed from the hall and leads to the garage and the rear terrace. There are plenty of storage cupboards, work surface with inset sink, space for washing and drying machines and space for a freestanding fridge/freezer.
To the first floor are five double bedrooms, bedroom 5 is currently utilised as a study. The master bedroom is of generous proportions and benefits from an en suite shower room, and along with bedroom 2 takes in the beautiful outlook across the Ilsham valley and coast of Lyme Bay. Bedroom 4 also has en suite facilities, and Bedroom 3 benefits from sea views over Tor Bay.

To the rear is a paved and decked terrace off the living room with space for outdoor furniture, ideal for alfresco dining and BBQs, and from where you can admire the views.
