Turning right from a country lane and passing a lawned front garden to the left, leads to the front door of this three-bedroom property.

The door opens into a small hall. Directly to the left is a kitchen-diner, whilst internal access to the large garage with downstairs W/C is directly in front. The kitchen-diner acts as the heart of the property, directly opposite is the door to the sitting room, whilst to the back of the room a second door leads through to the rear hall, door to the garden and stairs to the first floor.

The kitchen-diner itself is bright, with crisp, white units, dark worksurfaces and a free-standing cooker: with work surfaces and units on both walls there is plenty of cupboard and workspace. In addition, in the dining area there is ample room for a six-seater table adjacent to windows looking out over the front garden to the lane.

With three further windows facing out over the back garden the kitchen-diner is very well served for natural light. The adjacent sitting room is a good-sized room that also benefits from great natural light and views over the front garden. It has space for a four-seater sofa. The rear hall can also be accessed from this room through a door to the right as you go in.

The rear hall, nestled beneath the stairs provides access to the rear garden and the first floor. It provides a surprising amount of additional, versatile space that could be used as a boot room, for storage or even for a tucked-away home office desk!

Up the stairs are three bedrooms and a family bathroom off a central landing. The larger of the two rooms facing the front of the property has a fitted wardrobe and the final room looks out over the rear garden.

The property includes a good-size garage directly accessible from the house. The Vendors will be replacing the garage door. This offers plenty of additional storage space in addition to having room for a single vehicle. It houses a downstairs WC and also provides direct access to the garden.
The property has outside space to both the front and rear. The front garden is lawned, with flowers and mature shrubs.

The rear garden is also lawned and runs the length of both the property and the garage. It includes raised beds with mature shrubs and trees to the sides and rear. Parking for one vehicle is available in the garage, with space for an additional vehicle on the drive. The lane on which the property is situated has no through traffic and leads to a working farm.

The property is oil fired central heating, mains water and the electric is on a key meter.

The property is located in Colliton, a small settlement in the rural parish of Broadhembury.

Local facilities are found in nearby Broadhembury, the local parish centre (1.6 miles from the property). This well-preserved medieval estate village is well renowned for its rural charm, thatched buildings and 13th century church. It is very much alive, with its own school, playground, a lively shop, well-respected village pub (The Drewe Arms) and plenty of community events organised (including crafting clubs, gardeners groups, film nights and more organised in the newly renovated village hall). Further facilities including a local garage, community run shop and primary school are located in Payhembury, 2.2 miles from the property.

Colliton is well located for access to the Blackdown Hills AONB, which heaven for walkers, with footpaths that take you through farmland and forest, through bluebells and alongside streams as well as up, around and over iron age fortifications!

Rural and idyllic though the area may be, properties here are also blessed with excellent access to the outside world. The A373, accessed at the end of the lane, is the main road linking the towns of Honiton and Cullompton. This allows speedy access to the M5 at junction 28 (only 5.2 miles) or the A30/A303 (6.5 miles). Cullompton and Honiton (5.2 and 6.5 miles respectively) provide cafes, supermarkets, healthcare, recreational and additional retail amenities (including Honiton's wide range of antiques shops!). For further amenities still, county towns of Exeter and Taunton are both within c.20 miles and offer all major high street shops including Ikea and John Lewis.

The SW coast is 17 miles away at picturesque Branscombe, and most of Devon, Cornwall, Somerset and Dorset is accessible for day trips. Train stations at Feniton (5 miles) and Tiverton Parkway (11 miles) provide access to two separate train lines, providing direct connections to Exeter, London, the Midlands and the North of England. Exeter Airport is also within easy reach (14 miles).
