A fantastic opportunity to purchase a rarely available, comprehensively updated and improved detached bungalow within close proximity of riverside walks and within easy reach of the village centre. The accommodation comprises an entrance lobby, generous sitting/dining room, contemporary refitted kitchen, two double bedrooms and a stylish, newly fitted bathroom. Outside, the garden enjoys a delightful southerly aspect with some views towards surrounding countryside, whilst to the front of the property is a driveway, further gravel parking and a single garage with electric roller door. An early viewing is strongly advised for those seeking a “move straight in” detached bungalow in this ever popular Culm Valley village.
Situation and Amenities
9 Orchard Close lies within a short walk of the village centre with its Nisa convenience store, primary school and Ofsted rated “outstanding” Uffculme School. A more extensive range of High Street shops and supermarkets is to be found in the nearby town of Cullompton. The nearby M5 facilitates rapid commuting south to the cathedral city of Exeter and north to the county town of Taunton. Uffculme nestles at the foot of the Blackdown Hills which are designated as an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, whilst the surrounding countryside offers a wealth of country pursuits. The nearby River Culm with its lovely riverside walks runs through the village. The comparatively central Mid Devon location places the picturesque National Parks of Dartmoor and Exmoor together with the north and south Devon coastlines all within a modest car journey.
