Full Details for 3 Bedroom Detached for sale in Ottery St. Mary, EX11 :

Perrimead enjoys a particularly peaceful and secluded location within this very popular lane towards the outskirts of West Hill, but within walking distance of all the local amenities.

Built in the mid-1960s this detached bungalow has been improved and extended over recent years with plenty of accommodation for either a family or retired occupants alike. There are three bedrooms all with fitted wardrobes, a family bathroom fitted with a stylish white suite, and a shower room which boasts a corner shower cubicle with steam jets. The kitchen is fitted with timber-fronted cupboards and drawers and there is a useful utility with plumbing and space for modern appliances. The very spacious L-shaped living room benefits from a feature stone open fireplace with living flame Calor gas fire. The dining room enjoys wonderful outlooks across the garden from a large bay window and a glazed door leads through to the conservatory which benefits from electric heaters making it a useable room all year round. The property benefits from PVC double-glazing throughout and oil-fired central heating but gas is available if required. The loft space has been converted into storage rooms.

The setting is excellent; standing within level, enclosed and extremely mature grounds with a delightful variety of interesting shrubs, plants and trees – some of which are rare and unusual. The gardens are completely enclosed, private and sunny, amounting to approximately 0.417 of an acre. There is plenty of scope for further extension or additional development, subject to planning permission.
