We are pleased to offer this mature 1950's four bedroom semi-detached house, which has been extended and renovated by its current owners to a very high standard. The property has been much loved by our clients during the time they have spent there. It offers generous room proportions, typical of its era, with two reception rooms and four bedrooms as well as an enclosed south-facing rear garden with patio and lawn. The property was recently extended into the loft to create a lavish master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and dressing room. Moreover, planning permission has been granted for the current garage to be converted into an additional reception room. Furthermore, planning permission has been obtained for an addition to the side elevation of the house for a garage.

In addition to being conveniently situated near a number of highly regarded schools, the property is also close to Torbay Hospital and Wren Retail Park. Retailers such as Marks & Spencer's, Sainsbury's, Boots, Next, and others are located here. The property is situated just a few miles from Cockington Country Park, which has 460 acres of wooded areas, lakes, and meadows. Moreover, a local bus route and train station are located nearby, making it convenient to travel to a variety of destinations. There is easy access to the South Devon Highway, which is a faster route than the A38, taking about 30 minutes to reach Exeter.
