This well-appointed detached property occupies an elevated location in a quiet cul-de-sac in the favoured estuary village of Lympstone.

Thanks to its lofty location this fine three-bedroom family home, named Fairlawn House, benefits from superb views across the rooftops with the Exe estuary in the distance. The property has the advantage of having a separate studio annexe which has been granted planning permission to use as an Airbnb.

The main house dates back to the 1940s and over the course of time, it has been subject to a comprehensive and impressive schedule of enlargement and enhancements including a rear extension with a sunroom, a newly fitted kitchen, a utility and the self-contained annexe.

Inside, the property is presented in excellent decorative order with quality finishes and interesting features. Beyond the welcoming reception hallway, there is an impressive open-plan sitting room/dining room/sunroom with engineered wooden floors, a focal gas fire and bi-fold doors that open to the patio. This triple-aspect room is very much the hub of the house. The bespoke kitchen has a range of cream-coloured units, complementary worksurfaces, a central island with a breakfast bar and several integrated appliances.

A turning staircase leads to the first floor, where there are three bedrooms, two of which are large doubles, and a superbly appointed family bathroom. The principal bedroom has wonderful views across the village to the estuary, fitted wardrobes and a modern ensuite shower room.

Outside, the south-facing rear garden has a good degree of privacy and features a large, paved patio which is a perfect spot for outdoor dining. At the bottom of the garden, there is a self-contained studio annexe with a kitchenette, a modern shower room, and an allocated off-road parking space outside.

At the front of the property, there is a gravelled parking area leading to a garage, and a front lawn bordered with attractive and colourful shrubs and flowers.
