Attractive and immaculately presented, modern detached 4-bedroom family home situated in a quiet and private close with lovely views towards the Axe Estuary and nature reserve.
11 Garrett Close is situated in a select, small courtyard development built by Midas Homes in 2007, located within easy walking distance of the town and seafront. The developers had a fine eye to detail when building these properties which were built to a high specification throughout. This detached house has the envious position of being in a tucked away location within the close and is also adjacent to the pretty communal woodland area for the development. It enjoys delightful views across this area towards the Axe Estuary, nature reserve and countryside beyond.
The present owners have updated and improved the property since purchasing approximately ten years ago and the property and gardens are now extremely well presented throughout. The property benefits from full gas fired central heating and double glazing and must be viewed internally to be fully appreciated.
A canopy porch provides cover to front door which opens to the entrance hall with Karndean tiled flooring which flows through all the downstairs apart from the living room which is carpeted. From the hallway there is a deep understairs, shelved cupboard and a downstairs WC with pedestal basin. A door to the left opens to the kitchen/dining room with a renewed matching range of base and wall cupboards with quartz worktops. There is a new built-in Bosch microwave, oven and grill alongside a second Bosch oven, a gas hob with stainless steel splashback with extractor hood over, inset 1.5 bowl sink, space and plumbing for dishwasher, washing machine and an integrated fridge/freezer.
