Property description

Dince Hill Close is a favoured cul-de-sac on the southern fringes of this ever-popular East Devon village, with excellent local amenities which include a post office, church, two pubs and a railway connecting Exeter with London Waterloo.

This deceptively spacious, highly versatile chalet bungalow is tastefully decorated throughout and provides a comfortable home for both families and retired occupants alike. The well-proportioned accommodation briefly comprises: Reception hall, office area and a very impressive open-plan kitchen/living/dining room which is most definitely the heart of the home creating a lovely environment for families to cook, dine and socialise together. The kitchen is comprehensively fitted with an extensive range of cupboards and drawers, both at base and eye-level, whilst incorporating modern appliances which include instant hot tap and waste disposal unit, complemented by attractive granite-effect worktops which extend creating a breakfast bar. The sitting room is a spacious, l-shaped room with a woodburning stove creating a cosy atmosphere for a winters evening, and French doors give direct access to the rear garden. A useful utility room offers additional storage and appliance space. There are two double bedrooms on the ground floor and the master benefits from built-in bedroom furniture and an en-suite shower room. The family bathroom is fitted with a modern white suite concluding the ground floor.

On the first floor are two double bedrooms both benefitting from pleasant views across the village towards surrounding countryside. The property benefits from double glazing throughout and a modern oil-fired central heating system.

Outside, to the front of the property, is a substantial driveway providing off-road parking for several vehicles and access to the detached garage. Both the front and rear gardens enjoy an excellent degree of privacy. The front garden is fully enclosed with substantial timber fencing and a gravelled area creates a pleasant area for outdoor dining/entertaining. The rear garden is a good size with a large decking area continuing the outdoor dining theme. There is an expanse of lawn and a substantial timber garden shed/workshop. Steps lead down to a further decked area which has great potential to create another seating area in the summer months in a secluded setting.

Area Whimple: The mainline railway station on the London Waterloo-Exeter line is within the village, as are the doctor's surgery, post office, church, bus service, well-respected local primary school and heritage centre. There is also a cricket field and two good family pubs. The old A30 runs near the village which gives quick access to the A30 dual carriageway for easy journeys to Honiton, Exeter and the M5. Ottery St Mary is about 3 miles, Exeter 8 miles and the coast at Sidmouth is within a short drive.

Services We understand all mains services are connected except gas. Oil-fired central heating.
