Montigo is a mature detached bungalow built in the 1960s but substantially extended in recent years to provide an amazingly spacious family or retirement home in an accessible location on the extreme outskirts of Ottery St Mary, home to the renowned King's School. The A30 dual carriageway is within easy reach providing swift access to the Cathedral City of Exeter, M5 and the coast.
The property itself enjoys light and airy, beautifully presented accommodation, briefly comprising spacious and impressive reception hall which leads through to a wonderful open-plan kitchen/dining/living room which is most definitely the heart of the home, creating a lovely environment for families to cook, dine and socialise together, whilst admiring the pleasant views across the garden towards surrounding countryside. The kitchen is well-appointed with an extensive range of contemporary cupboards and drawers, both at base and eye-level, enhanced by quartz granite-effect worktops and built-in quality Neff appliances. The living area has a feature fireplace with inset multi-fuel/woodburning stove. Vaulted ceilings and velux windows enhance the light and airy feel. There is a utility/boot room offering additional storage and appliance space. The sitting room is yet another good sized room with a second set of bifold doors perfectly framing the lovely view. There are four good sized double bedrooms, two benefitting from an en-suite facility and the master has a large dressing room and access to a sunroom/gym. There is a luxury family bathroom fitted with quality fixtures and fittings. The property has been adapted to the current owner's family and has an annexe kitchen/living room which is another lovely open-plan room and further minor adaptations would create a completely self-contained annexe or a holiday let if ever required. The property is double-glazed and has a modern gas heating system creating an efficient home to run.
Approached via double timber gates a substantial gravelled in-and-out driveway provides off-road parking for several vehicles with room for boats, caravans, etc. The rear garden is another appealing feature being creatively landscaped with a variety of specimen plants, shrubs and trees creating a range of interest and colour throughout the year. There are substantial decking and patio areas providing plenty of room to enjoy outdoor dining/entertaining in an excellent degree of privacy and seclusion, whilst admiring the lovely country setting. There is a hot tub (included in the sale) and a large expanse of lawn provides plenty of room for children to run and play. This delightful garden is fully enclosed with mature hedging and fencing.
The total plot size belonging to Montigo is approximately ¼ of an acre.
