Many people have a desire for a modern property in the countryside, with views and surrounded by fields but not too far from civilisation. It’s a hard balance to find but Grattons seems to offer just that. Located just half a mile from the village of Cheriton Fitzpaine, with its pubs, community shop, doctor’s surgery, school and church, it has amenities on hand. Also within easy reach are Crediton (10-15 minutes), Exeter (25-30 minutes) and Tiverton (20 minutes) meaning excellent transport links and wider amenities aren’t too distant.
The bungalow has grown and been hugely improved over the years and now offers a spacious, modern and desirable home in a great location. The property did have 4 bedrooms but now offers 3 larger doubles, each with their own ensuite shower room / wet room. There are guest facilities too. The wing to the north incorporates the master bedroom with doors out to the garden and a luxury ensuite. It’s worth noting that with the study and conservatory, this area could be adapted to provide an annexe if required. Throughout the property there is plenty of storage and a large loft (boarded, insulated and plaster boarded with power and lighting) would make ideal extra storage or a hobby/playroom. The main living area is light, bright and well finished with a modern kitchen, incorporating Neff appliances and a central island. The kitchen can be open or closed to the dining area giving flexibility and the living room faces south taking in the garden and views. A sizeable utility to the end gives a lot more storage and a door leads to the side and to the detached double garage.
Outside, a gated driveway leads into a large parking area and in turn to the double garage with electric door. Access is around both sides of the bungalow, plus there is a second entrance for garden maintenance etc. The garden is gradually tiered with a higher lawn, patio and hot tub area (included with the sale) and a grassed bank slopes to the main lawn. There is a variety of fruit trees and natural hedging plus a timber garden shed. Under the property and accessed from the garden is an under store, ideal for garden furniture etc.

DIRECTIONS : From Crediton, take the A3072 towards Bickleigh/Tiverton. After approx. 3 miles, take the left turn at Coffin Tree Cross towards Cheriton Fitzpaine. Pass Thornes Farm shop and down the dip, climb the hill and at the top (Wordland Cross) bear left at the junction. At the end, turn left again and follow the lane. Grattons is the first property on the right after approx. 0.5 miles.
CHERITON FITZPAINE sits in a vast and hilly lowland region of Devon, the village is 9 miles from the City of Exeter and 1.5 miles northeast of the Crediton/ Tiverton A3072 road – a route that could be argued to be one of the most stunning sunset drives in the county. The village appears timeless and has many listed cottages with the classic poured custard thatched roofs. Notably there’s also a gothic church, known for its hard edges and sharp peaks. There are two pubs, The Ring of Bells and The Half Moon Inn – both of which are unique, but equally Devonian in spirit. Cheriton Fitzpaine is a substantial size and has a multi-million pound primary school, a community shop and Doctor’s surgery plus nearby Thornes Farm Shop, Café & Deli which is home to some exceptional quality homegrown produce. Local children are fortunate to be able to use (acquire grass stains in!) and shoot hoops in ‘Jack’s Acre’, a large playing field/ park maintained by the parish council.
