Exmouth is a bustling seaside town boasting over 3 miles of golden sands situated 11 miles south east of Exeter. There are huge opportunities for recreation, outdoor pursuits and watersports both in Exmouth and along the Exe estuary and Jurassic coastline heading eastwards. Activities enjoyed locally include boating, sailing, water ski-ing, kite surfing, walking, fishing and bird watching. There is a modern sports centre and swimming pool a short distance from the marina. Exmouth has its own thriving shopping centre including a recently opened M&S food hall, as well as a variety of restaurants and leisure facilities. Woodbury Park Golf and Country Club is also nearby.
Exmouth is surrounded by Devon’s beautiful rolling countryside yet is also a commuter town for the cathedral and university city of Exeter to which it has good public transport links by train and bus. Exeter itself offers a more comprehensive range of facilities and amenities, along with access to the M5 motorway network, expanding international airport and main railway line connections to both London Paddington and London Waterloo.
This substantial and extremely attractive red-brick detached house has 4 bedrooms, 2 reception rooms and a large kitchen/dining/family room. It occupies a very good-sized corner plot in a popular location a short distance from the town, sea front,railway station and Exe estuary cycle path.
The house is presented in a beautiful way; with its lovely kitchen / family room (which has ample room for both a dining table and sofa) contrasting with the formal sitting room with its hardwood floor and corner turret bay window, the owners having truly made the most of a mix of traditional and contemporary design and fittings throughout. Typically for a property of this period, the rooms have high ceilings, plenty of features such as decorative moulding and joinery, and are extremely well-proportioned. The corner rooms (master bedroom and sitting room) have particularly wonderful bay/turret windows – perfect for a chaise-longue and a gripping book! Many of the original character features have been retained and enhanced; the beautiful stained-glass kitchen door and landing window being especially noteworthy. Other interesting features, such as deep skirting boards and feature fireplaces augment this traditional feel.
This very real sense of inherent character and period splendour is also enhanced by some very useful additions to the original build, such as the useful entrance hall, ground floor WC and the large garage with workshop/studio to the rear.
There are two separate gated driveways at the property, which can provide plenty of parking, and a caravan or boat could also easily be accommodated. Whilst there are attractive lawned gardens to the front and side of the house, the rear gardens are a particular gem, being both surprisingly private and quiet. In addition to the level lawned area, there is also a wonderful bbq seating area, which would, we are sure, offer a wonderful place to relax and entertain in.
