Kaleen is situated in an excellent residential area of Seaton and stands in a slightly elevated yet sheltered location enjoying far reach views southwards over the town
to the sea and Lyme Bay beyond.
The property is conveniently placed for the shops, esplanade and other facilities of this bustling coastal resort which is situated on the World Heritage Site colloquially known as The Jurassic Coast. Seaton Tramway operates a narrow gauge heritage tram between Seaton, Colyford and Colyton in East Devon's glorious Axe Valley, travelling alongside the River Axe estuary through two nature reserves and giving an unrivalled view of the abundant wading bird life.
Seaton has a selection of recreational and shopping facilities including a large Tesco store. There are many walks, both coastal and country locally as well as the Axe Estuary, a well-known location for serious bird watchers. There is also the Jurassic Centre which offers a great day out for both adults and children.
The renowned Colyton Grammar School, one of the country's top mixed state schools is situated about 2 miles away on the outskirts of the country village of Colyford. The market town of Axminster is approximately 7 1/2 miles to the north-east and has a good variety of shops, schools and leisure facilities with mainline rail link to London (Waterloo). The busy market town of Honiton lies
some 15 miles away and is particularly well-known as an antique and book centre as well as having the usual range of shops, and also has a mainline rail link toLondon (Waterloo). The county town of Exeter lies about 26 miles to the westand has excellent shopping and sporting facilities, theatres, art centre, mainline rail link to London (Paddington), small international airport as well as M5 access.
Kaleen we understand was built circa 1930 for the manager of Beer Quarry Caves, and is traditionally constructed with rendered and colourwashed exterior elevations under a tiled roof, and has the benefit of low maintenance double
glazed windows. This handsome house has a number of attractive features including the front gable with bay windows, a ''turret'' to the west, again with windows looking towards the sea, parquet flooring to the three reception rooms, as well as a first floor balcony. Views over the Axe Valley Nature Reserve can be seen from the landing window.
The property has recently undergone a comprehensive programme of improvement and re-modelling and now boasts well planned light and spacious accommodation which is adaptable in its arrangement that certainly merits
personal inspection by the discerning purchaser. Amongst the more notable features which have been carried out include the extension to the property to the rear creating a utility room, completely re-fitting and equipping of the kitchen to a contemporary style with twin ovens, ceramic touch control hob, granite worktops and built-in dishwasher and fridge-freezer, and the addition of a fully tiled second bathroom.
The property is approached from Durley Road over a long drive that leads to a parking area to the rear, adjacent to which is the detached double garage with its electric roller door. The gardens create a most attractive and apt setting for the house itself. To the front are areas of lawn interspersed and bordered by colourful plant and shrub beds. There is also a nice terrace, a lovely place in which to sit and enjoy the views. To the rear there is a further area of garden with lawn again stocked with a great variety of mature plants and shrubs including camellias and a
magnolia. There is also a small greenhouse and to the rear of the garage a further terraced area together with a garden shed.
