A delightful detached bungalow located in a country position with charming, well-stocked gardens, integral double garage and views.
Upton Mead is an attractive detached residence which was built in the latter part of the twentieth century, before being almost reconstructed by the current vendors in the eleven or so years of their ownership. This also included the addition of the sun room, as well as a comprehensive
programme of improvement to the interior, resulting in the well appointed home we find today.
Worthy of particular mention is the good sized sitting room which has a woodburner and patio doors into the sun room, and the super modern kitchen which has been well-fitted with a good range of units and granite work surfaces.
The accommodation is also adaptable in its layout and offers one small single bedroom to the ground floor and a bath/shower room, whilst to the first floor there is a principal bedroom with an en-suite shower room and a second bedroom with a wash hand basin.
The property is approached from a small country lane to a driveway which provides parking for several vehicles, adjacent to which is the integral double garage with an electric up and over door and car port/store beside.
The gardens lie to the front and the rear of the property and are in the main laid to lawn, being interspersed with profusely stocked flower and shrub beds which have been beautifully tended by the current owners over the past decade. Adjoining the front is a westerly facing paved terrace, whilst to the rear there is a block building which provides a useful implement store.
Upton Mead is located in the tiny hamlet of Upton, which in turn is positioned on the country fringes of the picturesque and highly desirable village of Payhembury. The property sits amongst some of East Devon's most attractive rolling countryside over which the principal bedroom gains superb far reaching views. Although semi rural, it is readily accessible, with the village of Payhembury only a mile or so away, as well as the busy market town of Honiton which is about a fifteen minute drive. Payhembury is a desirable village and has a delightful small village green overlooked by its ancient Parish Church of St Mary's and popular public
house. It also has a primary school, village shop and a strong community with many social events throughout the year. Honiton lies about 5 miles to the south east and has a variety of independent shops and supermarkets, sport and leisure facilities and main line rail link to London (Waterloo). Exeter, the County Town, is approximately 15 miles to the west with an excellent shopping centre, theatres, sport and leisure facilities, M5 access and international airport.
The renowned Kings School at Ottery St Mary is approximately 5.5 miles away and Colyton Grammar School, one of England's top co-educational state schools, is some 13 miles to the south west. The World Heritage
Jurassic Coast at Lyme Bay is about 12 miles distant.
