Offers in the region of £575,000  | 4 Bedrooms

A superbly located and individual detached 4 bedroom family village house occupying a great tucked away position being just one of 3 quality homes off a private drive close but not far from the village centre.

Properties like this even in Whimple very rarely come to the market. This is the first time that this particular property has been sold since its original construction nearly 30 years ago. It stands in a lovely level private site at the end of a short private drive serving just 3 exclusive dwellings and surrounded my mature gardens with many shrubs, trees and hedging. The house provides very comfortable family accommodation. If you're looking for a "one-off" opportunity then this is probably it!

The Laurels is located in a very well regarded area in the beautiful East Devon countryside, in a tucked away position not far from the centre of the village of Whimple, being one of just 3, quality individual homes located off a private drive.The village which is extremely popular has a church, primary school, village store and post office, doctor's surgery, garage, two inns and a mainline railway station with links to Exeter and London Waterloo.

The thriving town of Honiton which has a good range of amenities is about 10 miles away.
