A fantastic, recently refurbished, 4 bedroom house, with a large 1 bedroom ancillary unit, in a simply fabulous location that is both close to the city centre, yet within wonderful country environment. Extensive gardens and sloping paddock of approximately an acre with simply breath-taking views. Large garage and workshop.
In more detail :
Situated on the edge of the Duryard Valley (a wonderful valley park just a mile and a half from the city centre), the property enjoys some gorgeous country views and yet is within reasonable walking distance of the University of Exeter (with the well-known Northcott Theatre, Great Hall and sports facilities), the Steiner School, St David’s Station and the city centre itself.
Located on an unmetelled no through road, Orchard way sits in a tranquil spot that still surprises many who visit. Set into the side of this small valley, the property offers plenty of car parking, including a hard-standing and good-sized garage and workshop.
The gardens, which are wonderfully mature, are laid out over several levels, most of which enjoy superb views, and comprise areas of level lawn, decking, an orchard and a vegetable plot. In total they amount to nearly an acre.
Originally constructed as an Art Deco single storey dwelling, this fabulous house has been greatly extended over the years and now offers extensive and generous accommodation that includes sitting and dining rooms (both with wood burning stoves and patio doors that open out onto the full-length verandah), a snug/office, shower room, kitchen/breakfast room and conservatory on the ground floor, plus 4 double bedrooms (one with En suite shower room) and a bathroom on the first floor. On the lower ground floor is a similarly bright and spacious series of four rooms presently set out as a sitting room, double bedroom, shower and potential kitchen diner. Self-contained and with its own direct access to the gardens, the rooms feel just as special as the house and would make a wonderful space for an older child, dependent relative or perhaps to derive some income from.
The house has been extensively refurbished over the last few years and offers bright accommodation with a contemporary theme, which combines beautifully with the ever-changing country views that are enjoyed from most of the principal rooms.
For the more ambitious, there is planning permission in place to extensively redevelop the existing house into a contemporary home that combines the existing main accommodation with the annexe to form an impressive property in this unique and truly breath-taking location.
What the owners will miss :
… we will miss sitting on the veranda listening to the rain on the glass roof, the amazing wildlife including the deer that visit everyday and the buzzard who sits in the tree in our field looking for prey and we will miss watching the 'rush hour' in the sky at the end of a summer’s day when the birds fly to different destinations for the night.
