A wonderful detached property with immaculately presented accommodation, in an elevated position tucked away in this very picturesque village. THE PROPERTY Tucked away on the edge of this lovely and picturesque village, and arguably in the most enviable position, The Old Lake House is a superb home in this truly idyllic location. Built in circa 1910 this wonderful property has recently undergone a fastidious program of works, but still offers huge scope to extend and improve (subject to the necessary planning permissions). As soon as the front door opens there is a real sense of space, light and charm, with incredibly well-presented accommodation throughout. All the rooms benefit from attractive wooden flooring and wonderful views. There are many rooms in the house worth a special mention, including the lovely sitting room with a wood burning stove and direct access to the rear garden. There is also a fantastic kitchen and dining area which also benefits from a wood burning stove, and with a large utility area and cloakroom alongside. There are two very good-sized bedrooms and a single bedroom which is currently used as a study, plus a shower room with a power shower. The garden almost surrounds the house with a large lawned area and many well-stocked borders, and like much of the house it benefits from far reaching views with plenty of areas ideal for al fresco dining. All in all, this is a wonderful primary or secondary home in an idyllic and very convenient location. LOCATION The Old Lake House is situated on the edge of the delightful village of Whitford in the heart of East Devon close to the coast in this area of outstanding natural beauty. There is a parish church and nearby Musbury has a garage/petrol station with shop and post office, primary school, village hall and The Hind public house. Kilmington (1 miles) has the well-known Millers Farm Shop, public houses, village hall and primary school. The market towns of Honiton and Axminster lie to the north west and north east and both provide an excellent range of shops, schools and amenities, together with railway stations serving London Waterloo. Exeter International Airport is 22 miles and access to the M5 under 20 miles. To the south are the coastal towns of Seaton and Lyme Regis and the pretty fishing villages of Beer and Branscombe are also within a short distance.
