The Property: 28 Castle View is a well-presented link detached property set on the hill with impressive and far-reaching views over the town and surrounding countryside. Since purchasing the property, the current vendor has made major improvements throughout with a partial rewire, new heating system including gas central heating boiler, renewed double glazing and the addition of a new porch to the front of the property. There has also been redecoration throughout including Karndean flooring to the downstairs, oak flooring in the living room/diner; carpets upstairs; new kitchen and a new gas fireplace in the living room. Similarly, works have also been carried out to the garden with careful planting and landscaping throughout. Entrance is gained via the newly added external porch which houses the meter cupboards with red tiled floor, with internal front door leading into the main entrance hall where there is a deep understairs storage cupboard with additional built in storage. To the right is the triple aspect living/dining room with oak flooring which flows throughout and feature gas fireplace with wooden surround. The dining end has plenty of space for a table and chairs, serving hatch into the kitchen and sliding doors out onto the rear terrace and benefits from outstanding views over the surrounding countryside and over Colyton toward the church and beyond. The modern kitchen is fully fitted with white shaker style base and wall units including larder cupboards and deep pan drawers, wood effect laminate worktops, white subway tiling splashback and sink. There is a brand new integrated double oven, alongside Bosch ceramic hob with extractor fan; integrated tall fridge freezer and a freestanding dishwasher. A door leads out to the utility space which also has the same base and wall units and worktops, alongside space for a freestanding undercounter appliance, plus space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble drier which our vendor is happy to leave behind. The gas central heating boiler is also situated here, alongside a uPVC stable style door giving access to the rear garden. There is also a downstairs WC with toilet and vanity unit with wash hand basin. An integral door leads from the utility space into the single garage which benefits from up and over door, power and light.
Stairs rise to the first-floor landing where there is an airing cupboard with slatted shelving alongside the accommodation space. There is a family bathroom with modern white suite which is fully tiled with P-shaped bath and mains shower over, heated towel rail, wash hand basin and WC. Bedroom 1 is situated to the rear of the property and is a well-proportioned double aspect room benefitting from a fitted walk-in shower, alongside built in wardrobes and spectacular views across the valley and surrounding landscape. Bedroom 2 is also a good-sized double room and faces the front of the property with built in storage along one side. A door then gives access to bedroom 4 which could easily work as a small bedroom, storage room, dressing room or study with a built-in storage cupboard. A further door from this room then leads into bedroom 3 which runs above the garage which is another double bedroom with Velux window to front and access to eaves storage.
Outside: The front of the property is bordered by red brick retaining walls and some mature hedge and shrubs. There is driveway parking in front of the integral garage for several vehicles in tandem and a paved pathway leads up to the front entrance porch. Accessed from the utility room and dining area, there is the rear garden where there is an elevated paved terraced area which runs adjacent to the property with iron railings making the most of the spectacular countryside views beyond. There is also the benefit of an outside tap and outside light. A pathway leads to one side where there is a bin storage area, with steps and iron handrail leading up to a gate giving rear access on to the main Castle View Road. The pretty garden has been landscaped and terraced throughout and is bursting with flowering shrubs, mature bushes and hedges, trees and plants alongside wooden fence borders to all sides. A board walk path leads into the garden with stepping stones to a decorative higher paved area with wooden trellis surround. A wooden archway with steps lead down to an area of gravel and further steps with handrail lead to the lower garden where there is a tucked away summer house. A pathway leads through iron gates to a second secluded area of lower garden where there is a drying area, wildlife pond and various fruit trees including apples, pears and figs alongside raised veggie patches.
