Property description

Attractive and immaculately presented modern detached 4 bedroom family home situated in a quiet and private estate with lovely views towards the Axe Estuary and nature reserve.


Seaton is located between the ancient harbour of Axmouth and the white cliffs of Beer. Its mile long beach, which is part of the Jurassic Coast, opens onto the waters of Lyme Bay. The town itself has many small shops, a local hospital, doctors' surgeries, primary school, banks and building societies. Seaton is a popular resort for holiday makers, and boasts a wealth of activities including golf, tennis, bowls and sailing. There are good secondary schools nearby along with the renowned Colyton Grammar School, which is just 3 miles inland. The County town of Exeter, with its regional airport, is some twenty miles to the west, and the mainline rail link to London (Waterloo) is at Axminster, approximately seven miles distant.

An attractive and popular East Devon seaside resort with a good size resident population which is increasing rapidly with many new developments planned and currently under construction.

Location Continued....

The town attracts many tourists and day visitors throughout the year. It is located on the world famous Jurrassic Coast, a unesco World Heritage Site. A new Jurrassic Coast visitor centre has opened which will further boost visitor numbers.

There is the unique Electric Tram Railway which operates from its Terminus nearby traveling through the Axe valley bird sanctuary and wetlands to the historic inland town of Colyton.

The famous Beer Caves and Pecorama railway and visitor centre are closeby in the fishing village of Beer.

The Property:

7 Garrett Close is situated in a select small courtyard development built by Midas Homes in 2007. Our vendor has owned the property since new and the property is offered in an immaculate condition throughout.

The accommodation is spread over three floors in this detached family home and a particular feature is that the gardens to the rear, back onto a communally owned woodland and paddock with lovely views across the nature reserve to the Axe Estuary, sea and countryside beyond.

On entering the property there is a large entrance hall with cloakroom and glazed doors giving access to the open plan kitchen/breakfast room to one side and the living room to the other. Both these rooms have doors off to the rear terrace and overlook the gardens with views beyond to the nature reserve.

There are three bedrooms on the first floor, one with an en-suite shower room and a family bathroom.

The Property Continued....

The Master Bedroom suite which is on the second floor incorporates a sizeable bedroom with dressing room and bathroom off with a vaulted ceiling.

There is an attractive 'green' at the entrance to the development and the property also has access to a shared woodland and amenity area which adjoins the Parish Church. Garrett Close is conveniently situated, being within walking distance for both the town and seafront.

This property still benefits from the original NHBC warranty which is due to expire in December 2018. It is also being sold as vacant possession on completion so there would be no onward chain involved.
