Blue Cedar Homes’ Wildflowers development in Budleigh Salterton has been a huge success, with three of the five detached homes sold before the site is available for general viewing.

Orchid, the original house which lent the development its name, will shortly be available for viewing and really is a stunning proposition.

Built in 1923 by Budleigh Salterton’s favourite architect, William Hatchard-Smith, it has a strong arts and crafts influence with large windows flooding the beautifully proportioned rooms with light.

Blue Cedar Homes have carried out a comprehensive programme of restoration including exterior items such as re-roofing, re-rendering and the installation of UPVC double glazed windows. The interior has been superbly refurbished, providing exceptionally spacious accommodation with glimpses of the sea from the first floor.

This features a superb master bedroom suite with dressing room and shower room, three further double bedrooms, one en-suite and a family bathroom.

Three reception rooms on the ground floor include a superbly proportioned sitting room with fireplace which has double doors to a stunning breakfast kitchen opening into the garden. The accommodation is completed by a utility room and cloakroom.

Orchid has a spacious single garage with remote controlled door and generous outside space with sun and seclusion.

As with all Blue Cedar Homes, the annual service charge covers maintenance of the private garden and the beautifully landscaped communal garden.

Conceived for buyers over 55 years of age, Blue Cedar Homes “future proof” proposition also makes Orchid most attractive for owners wishing to spend time travelling, secure in the knowledge their home will be well looked after in their absence.

Orchid is for sale at £775,000 with Palmers Whitton & Laing in Budleigh Salterton who may be contacted on 01395-445600.
