A rare opportunity to acquire a comparatively modern country home in this most sought after village. Riverlea has been greatly enjoyed by the present owners for 17 years whilst making many improvements and extensions. The versatile accommodation benefits from oil central heating and double glazing whilst the addition of the superb conservatory has created a seamless link with the extensive mature gardens. The fine master bedroom could readily be remodelled to recreate the original three bedroom layout. The garage extension and creation of the attic room has further enhanced the accommodation and an early inspection is recommended to those seeking an easily run village home with a particularly large established garden.
Tucked a short way down a lane in the small village of Clyst Hydon with its highly regarded primary school, renowned Five Bells public house and its vibrant village identity including the church, cricket club and swimming pool, Clyst Hydon is well placed for easy access to Exeter and Cullompton. The M5 Junction 28 at Cullompton facilitates rapid commuting south and north.
