A spacious, individual detached 3 bedroom split level bungalow in need of modernisation but with enormous potential for enhancement and standing in a very good sized well stocked garden in one of the most favoured areas on the southern edge of the city near Alphington. There is ample parking plus a large carport and garage. This is an excellent opportunity not to be missed!
From the City Centre, proceed down Western Way towards the Exe Bridges roundabout and take the first exit onto Alphington Road. Continue straight along past Sainsburys and then take the left hand fork following the signs to Alphington. At the mini roundabout take the third exit into Alphington village and continue up through the village, taking the right hand fork where you will encounter two mini roundabouts. Continue straight over these to the right into Shillingford Road and on leaving Exeter you will very shortly enter Shillingford Abbot where the property being sold will be found soon after you enter the village on the left hand side.
Shillingford Abbot is a highly desirable, pretty hamlet surrounded by lovely countryside approximately 3 miles South West of the centre of Exeter with its Cathedral, University and wide range of shopping and leisure facilities, schools and excellent communication links onto major routes such as the M5 and the A38 Devon Expressway. Shillingford Abbot is quietly situated between Alphington and Shillingford St George, Alphington having useful amenities such as a shop, post office, public house, church, pharmacy and primary school.
