A three-bed semi-detached property in a charming rural location less than 2.5 miles from Exeter. The property has good-sized front and back gardens and is a short walk (0.1 mile) from the local community shop. The property is in need of modernisation but, with a little love, it would make a perfect home for those looking for the shared benefits of life in a historic rural village and fast, direct access to the cathedral city of Exeter.
Please note: the property is subject to a Designated Rural Area Restrictive Covenant S157: future owners must have lived or worked in Devon for three years prior to purchase.
The property is approached along a low-hedged path that leads past the gardens of the adjoining houses and has lovely views over fields in front and to the right. The front door of the property opens into a hall with stairs to the first floor directly in front and the sitting room to the right and the kitchen and way through to the garden to the left. The front room of the house is spacious with a central fireplace (and back boiler) and windows to both sides providing views to the front and back gardens. The kitchen also has views looking out over the gardens and fields to the village and provides ample work surface space and storage. From the kitchen a door leads through to a back hall from which a storage cupboard/larder, family bathroom and the door to the rear garden are accessed. Upstairs there are three bedrooms, the largest of which is especially spacious it has fitted wardrobes and windows opening on to the front gardens and over the fields to Ide. The second bedroom also has garden and field views and a separate enclosed cupboard. The final room looks over the back garden.
The property has both front and back gardens with side access between them. The front garden is in two areas: a smaller fenced and hedged area near the house, with a short garden path leading to the property's front door and a second, longer garden, backing onto fields and accessed from the other side of the path shared with the adjacent properties. The rear garden is also a good-sized space with areas of paving and lawn; it currently houses two garden sheds and a greenhouse. Internally, the property is in need of modernisation, but this will pose an exciting opportunity for the new owners to make the place their own, whilst benefitting from its excellent location in lovely, rural Ide.
