Avalon is a substantial detached bungalow which is situated in a tucked away quiet location in the picturesque village of Kilmington. This modern property is well planned out in layout and sits in attractive mature gardens enjoying lovely south facing views across the Axe Valley. The front door opens to a large entrance hall with south facing patio area across the front of the property. The entrance hallway has access to all main rooms. The living room has large sliding patio doors with glorious views over the gardens towards the countryside in the distance which opens to a patio area in front. A door opens to a good sized conservatory to the side which also enjoys the same views. To the other side of the hallway is a separate dining room with hatch to kitchen and sliding patio doors to front. The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a matching range of base and wall units and has access to a separate utility room where the oil fired boiler is situated. A door from the utility leads to an external porch with access to the driveway. There are three good sized bedrooms with the master bedroom having an en-suite shower room with WC and there is a separate family bathroom. The loft is sizeable and would easily lend itself to a loft conversion subject to any necessary planning consent etc. The property benefits from a majority of uPVC double glazed windows and oil fired central heating and must be viewed internally to appreciate the size and views enjoyed from within.

From Silver Street there is access to parking to the side of the garage with gates opening to the bungalow and the porch. A pathway runs past a side entrance with porch to the front of the bungalow with access to the entrance door.
