A stunning detached split-level residence commanding breathtaking estuary, country and sea views.
Fern House was constructed about thirty years ago but has recently undergone a comprehensive programme of improvement, work which has resulted in creating the stunning detached home we find today. It is typically built with part rendered and part exterior brick elevations under a tiled roof, and has the benefit of quality double glazed windows throughout, as well as low maintenance soffits and barge boards. The accommodation is well laid out on two floors, the main living accommodation being on the first floor in order to take full advantage of the view which all the principal rooms enjoy.
The accommodation is flexible in its arrangement and beautifully presented. Worthy of particular mention is the living room with its freestanding log burner, and which opens onto a large decked area as does the contemporary fitted clean line kitchen.
The balcony is undoubtedly one of the prime features of the property and commands a stunning aspect. There are high quality bath and shower fittings, all of which combine to create the exceptional contemporary home we find today which certainly merits viewing by any discerning purchaser.
The property is approached from Churston Rise to a drive which leads up to a tarmacadam parking and turn around space, adjacent to which is the integral garage with its electric roller door. The gardens to the front are laid principally to areas of lawn and fall away from the property itself. To the rear is a further decked area with small pergola a lovely place to sit during the late afternoon/evening as the sun comes around to the west. There are also areas of lawn and a pedestrian access to a small footpath.
Fern House is situated in an elevated yet sheltered location commanding what can arguably be called some of the best views from the town, eastwards over the Axe Estuary to the hills and cliffs beyond, and southwards to the sea at Lyme Bay.
Standing in a quiet residential area towards the outskirts of the pleasant coastal town of Seaton which is situated on the World Heritage Jurassic Coastline.
The town with all its amenities, is within easy access as are some delightful rural walks, making this an ideal and well balanced location.
Seaton offers excellent bus links with the 'hail and stop' bus service running regularly into the town centre from the end of Churston Rise. The popular coastal bus service can be picked up from the seafront and runs 100 miles along the Jurassic Coastline from Exeter to Poole via Weymouth. 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 and some lovely independent shops. There are many walks, both coastal and country locally as well as the Axe Estuary, a well-known location for serious bird watchers. Most recently, there is also the Jurassic Centre which offers a great day out for both adults and children.
