A fabulous, substantial detached family home with three/four double bedrooms, master en suite, a double garage, balcony, surrounding gardens and breath-taking sea views in a superb elevated position, in the seaside town of Teignmouth.
Wrought-iron double gates provide access into the enclosed garden and a tarmac driveway provides ample parking and leads to the entrance. Inside, it is very spacious with light and neutral décor, though it is dated and would benefit from some modernisation. It feels warm and welcoming with gas central heating and double glazing throughout and is arranged reverse-level, to capitalise on the absolutely superb views of the sea, coastline and surrounding area. A front door leads into an entrance vestibule which has a terracotta tiled floor, and an inner door leads into the impressive entrance hall which is very spacious, having an inlaid TEAK floor, a turning staircase rising to the first floor, and a cupboard providing storage for coats and shoes. On the ground floor, there are two light and airy double bedrooms, both with wash-hand basins for convenience, one having fitted double wardrobes. These are served by a large bathroom which has wall to wall carpet, covering a cork floor and part-tiled walls, containing a blue suite comprising a bath, a separate shower, a pedestal basin and a WC. A utility room has a vinyl tiled floor, storage space for coats and shoes, a sink unit with a double drainer and space with plumbing for a washing machine. It also houses a floor-mounted gas boiler which provides the central heating and hot water.
The door leads into the rear of the integral double garage which has lights, power, a workbench and storage and a wide up and over garage door to the driveway.
Upstairs, the spacious landing has a coloured French glass wall with the French doors leading into a fabulous living/dining room which is spacious and filled with light from dual-aspect windows, from where there are superb views of the sea, Devon coastline and surrounding countryside as far as Dartmoor to the West. A polished-stone fireplace has a living-flame gas fire which makes a nice feature and focal point for the room and there is plenty of room for a dining table for even the most extended of families, perfect for any occasion.
The kitchen/breakfast room has a folding door and plenty of natural light from a wide window with more of the fabulous views. There is a fitted kitchen with plenty of worktop space, tiled splashbacks and a range of fitted pine base, drawer and wall units, providing ample cupboard space complete with under-cabinet feature lighting. There is a built-in oven, a separate ceramic hob, a one and a half-bowl sink and mixer tap beneath the window, an integrated dishwasher and an alcove for an upright fridge/freezer within the fitted units.
The master bedroom is a spacious double with dual-aspect windows, a fitted wardrobe and an en suite bathroom (out of use and work required on fixtures and fittings) containing a bath, a pedestal basin and a WC. A glazed door leads out onto a private balcony with a decorative wrought-iron balustrade, perfect for enjoying the stunning view over breakfast or afternoon tea, and South-facing it enjoys long hours of summer sunshine.
A light and airy study is perfect for those working from home and would make a great fourth bedroom is required and has a door to a rear porch providing alternative access to the rear garden. The landing has an airing cupboard with an insulated hot water cylinder and slatted shelving for linen (the heater has the option of being used with electricity instead of gas). Beside the cupboard, is a cloakroom containing a WC, a pedestal basin and a tall cupboard for toiletries. A hatch in the landing ceiling provides access to the loft space where there is a drop-down ladder for convenience and plenty of insulation. It has excellent potential to extend into the roof in order to create additional accommodation if required, subject to the necessary approval.
Outside, beside the front door is a terrace of paving with a decorative balustrade and wide steps lead up to the rear of the property where there is a back door to the top floor, areas of lawn and a number of mature trees. At the front of the property there is a gently sloping formal lawn interspersed with some mature trees, shrubs, bushes and flower beds.
The total plot is approximately half an acre, which gives potential for development, subject to necessary planning and building consents.
