A spacious detached bungalow situated in a beautiful country location within about 3.3 acres of gardens, grounds and paddocks.
Sunny Meads sits amongst some of East Devon's most attractive rolling countryside, yet is also conveniently positioned within walking distance of the village amenities of Colyford and Colyton Grammar School, as well as the highly desirable town of Colyton and the World Heritage Jurassic Coastline at Lyme Bay.
Colyton nestles on the bank of the River Coly, some 3 miles from the World Heritage Site known as the Jurassic Coast. This small town offers a comprehensive range of shopping and recreational amenities, and the renowned Colyton Grammar School, one of the country's top mixed state schools, is within walking distance. The town, with its beautiful medieval church, is situated amongst some of East Devon's most attractive countryside, much of which is designated as being of outstanding natural beauty and there are a myriad of footpaths and bridleways in the vicinity.
The coast at Seaton, some 3 mile to the south, offers a long pebble beach and esplanade and there are beautiful coastal walks both east and west over the South West Peninsular Footpath.
The busy market town of Axminster is approximately 5 miles to the north east and has a wide variety of amenities including supermarkets, various schools, shops, which include Hugh Fearnley-Whitingstall's River Cottage Shop and Cafe and leisure facilities with main line rail link to London (Waterloo). There are a number of golf courses in the area and sailing at the picturesque town of Lyme Regis.
Sunny Meads was built in the late 1950s, is south-facing and of traditional construction with principally colourwashed, rendered elevations under a tiled roof and sits well off the lane, taking advantage of some wonderful views over its paddock to the front and the countryside beyond. It has particularly spacious accommodation which has been the subject of a continued programme of enlargement, improvement and upkeep under the 29-year ownership of our vendors.
Worthy of particular mention is the large sitting room which has patio doors to the side and bespoke oak fire surround. Also worthy of note is the impressive sun room to the rear with pitched, glazed roof, leading to a large, paved terraced area and gardens. To the front is a driveway offering ample parking and a double, open fronted garage.
Sunny Meads has very adaptable accommodation which would suit a variety of needs and could provide four or five bedrooms if one so desired, therefore, it would suit family occupation. It is currently set up with four bedrooms and four bathrooms; two bedrooms to the ground floor, one of which is en-suite, and two bedrooms and bathroom to the first floor, with the master bedroom being en-suite. The first floor bedrooms, in particular, take advantage of the superb views over the grounds to the countryside beyond.
Gardens and Grounds.
The property is approached from a small country lane over a driveway which provides parking for several vehicles, adjacent to which is a detached double garage. The formal gardens surround the property with lawns and a magnificent Magnolia, whilst to the East is a small Orchard. To the rear of the property is a paved terrace with borders containing a variety of plants, shrubs and trees. Beyond the orchard is a small paddock where there is a modern stable block which comprises two boxes and hay store to the rear. To the front of the property is the larger paddock which would be perfect for those with horses or a small flock of animals and can be seen from most of the principal rooms in the property. The gardens and grounds take advantage of some wonderful country views and extend to about 3.3 acres.
