Property description

Enjoying an enviable rural Devonshire setting, this fantastic family home features a beautiful outlook from three aspects and has been designed by the current vendors to combine its idyllic countryside position with the benefits of modern living. With an energy efficiency rating of band B and the potential for reaching band A, the property has been fitted with solar panels which reduce living costs whilst also producing tax free income. Complementing its wonderful views, a prime feature of this modern home is the extensive south west facing garden which envelops two sides of the house.

Approached via a driveway providing ample off road parking for a number of vehicles, the house itself has been thoughtfully designed, boasting generous room sizes and oil-fired underfloor heating throughout the ground floor. The front door opens to an impressive entrance hall, providing access to a spacious, triple-aspect living room, dining room, attractive kitchen breakfast room, study, utility room, cloakroom and integral double garage. The ground floor also hosts a conservatory offering an enviable view of the garden and neighbouring countryside. Upstairs there are five double bedrooms, all of which include built-in storage, two en-suites, a family bathroom, ample built-in storage and access to a large loft space.

The village of Kenton is approximately 1.5 miles from the property and offers several pubs and restaurants, a primary school and parish church. This position is also close to the Exe Estuary, Powderham Castle and Farm Shop and also benefits from good links with the nearby city of Exeter.

Lovingly maintained by the current vendors viewing is essential in order to fully appreciate this eco-friendly property.
