Well Presented first floor, two bedroom, apartment in an attractive, detached period property set in picturesque grounds of approximately 1 acre close to Seaton Hole.
The Property: 4 The Glen is a well presented two-bedroom apartment forming part of a period detached property, set within sweeping communal gardens. Situated just a stone's throw from Seaton Hole on a quiet no through road, the property is in a peaceful and picturesque location and would make an ideal bolthole/second home as well as a permanent residence given its close location to both Beer and Seaton. Since purchasing the property a few years ago, the current vendors have improved the property throughout with an updated kitchen, carpets in the living room and hall and new kitchen floors; alongside many decorative updates including a new electric fire in the living room. The property also benefits from several period features including high ceilings, decorative coving and deep skirting to some rooms adding to its overall character. Access to the Glen is via a communal front door with secure entry system into the entrance lobby and stairs then rise to the first floor, to a separate front door for number 4. A spacious entrance hall then gives access to the living and accommodation space within. The kitchen is immediately on the left and has recently been updated. It is fully fitted with new flooring, grey and wood base and wall units, fitted oven with electric hob and extractor and space/plumbing for an undercounter appliance plus space for fridge/freezer. On your right-hand side is the living and dining room which is a spacious double aspect room with feature fireplace including electric fire with marble hearth and marble effect mantle. This characterful room has a lovely bay window which has beautiful views over the pretty communal gardens as well as views towards Seaton, the beach and the sea. The property benefits from two well-proportioned double bedrooms. Bedroom one houses the unvented hot water system and bedroom 2 has built in wardrobe storage. There is also a main bathroom which is fully tiled with vinyl flooring and white suite including sink, WC and bath with electric and mains shower; alongside a storage cupboard accessed from the hall. The property benefits from uPVC double glazing and electric heating and must be viewed to be fully appreciated.
