Forest View occupies a lovely tucked away location within this popular East Devon hamlet. Harpford forms part of the Otter Valley and is within a short drive of the village of Newton Poppleford, where local amenities and bus services can be found. Within three miles is the popular coastal resort of Sidmouth, which offers an excellent range of facilities, including the Waitrose supermarket, as well as the popular Regency Esplanade and seafront.
The bungalow offers spacious three bedroom accommodation and is set in a very large garden which extends to approximately three quarters of an acre. The majority of the gardens enjoy a southerly aspect and they are extremely well stocked and provide an excellent amount of privacy. The property benefits from having gas fired central heating and double glazed windows which include sliding patio doors from the sitting room into the garden. The master bedroom has an en-suite wet room and in addition to this is a separate bathroom and further shower room. The kitchen benefits from having a built-in split level oven, hob and cooker hob and adjoining this is a large utility/hobbies room, which, we understand, was the original garage.
Adjoining the front of the bungalow there is a driveway providing ample parking and turning.
Leave Sidmouth by any of the major routes and, on meeting the A3052 (Exeter to Lyme Regis road) turn left, signposted Exeter. Continue towards Newton Poppleford, dropping down Four Elms Hill and take the first turning on the right, which is Higher Way, Harpford. Continue for approximately 0.2 miles and on the right hand side will be seen a splayed entrance to Harpford House. Continue up this driveway and, at the top of the drive, continue to the left of Harpford House and follow the drive. Forest View will then be found at the end of this driveway.
