This superb family home features attractive, modern accommodation configured over two floors in the extremely popular coastal town of Exmouth. The current owners have refurbished and extended the property to create an elegant five bedroom home with the flexibility of a ground floor annexe if required. The extension was designed by the well regarded architect Andrew Long and was built by local Exmouth Builders. Planning has also been granted to extend the front of the house outwards to provide further accommodation. The property benefits from a wealth of natural light throughout and enjoys a large garden with far reaching views over the surrounding coast and countryside.
The two main ground floor reception rooms are the living room and the sitting room/dining room, both of similar proportions offering well-appointed accommodation. The living room features a dual-aspect allowing for a light-filled space while the adjoining sitting room enjoys a feature fireplace fitted with a woodburner. The ground floor also has an integral office space with sound reducing doors and a cloakroom. At the rear, the open plan, 24ft kitchen and family room opens onto a decked non-slip terrace via sliding glass doors the length of the room. The kitchen has shaker-style units to base and wall level, oak worktops, a large central island, an induction hob, slim line integrated dishwasher, a wine fridge and double ovens. The kitchen further benefits from an atrium in the ceiling that welcomes natural light into the space. Also on the ground floor is an additional reception room with an adjoining shower room, which could lend itself to annexe accommodation if required. Across the hallway is a large utility room with access to the outside which could also be used as an annexe kitchen.
Upstairs there are four bedrooms, three of which are doubles, including the generous principal bedroom which has a dressing area with extensive fitted storage, an en suite bathroom and French doors that open onto a balcony. One of the further bedrooms has a vaulted ceiling with a feature arched window and a Juliet balcony overlooking the rear garden. Also on the first floor is a shower room and a separate WC.
Planning permission In 2021 planning consent was granted to create an extension to the front of the house creating a canopied entrance porch on the ground floor (off the living room) with a double bedroom en suite above. Reference: 21/0544/FUL.
