Located on Topsham Road in the ever popular St Leonards area of Exeter, this wonderful Victorian home is ideally positioned to access routes in and out of the city. The city centre with its associated facilities are also close at hand. The Riverside Valley Park is a short walk away with lovely walks, kayaking or cycling along the River Exe and the Ship Canal, leading to Exeter Quay or all the way to the famous Turf Locks Pub approx. 4.5 miles away. There are several highly regarded schools in the vicinity and local facilities along Magdalen Road - a thriving, village-like hub of independent stores, including farm shops, wine merchant, delicatessen, gift shops, cafes, bistro, pub and an award-winning fishmonger.
Typical of properties of this Era, this fine family home offers spacious accommodation throughout with high ceilings and period features. With flexible accommodation over three floors it could accommodate the largest of families, or with a little work and the correct permissions, one floor could become an annexe for a dependent relative or income generation. The ground floor has a porch leading to a spacious hallway with original floor tiles leading to the reception rooms. The sitting room is of very generous proportions with a bay window to the front flooding the room with light, and a feature stone and brick fireplace. The dining room has room for the largest of dining tables, or could be a dual purpose room as it is now. The kitchen has a comprehensive range of storage units with a long breakfast bar. A modern range cooker is situated where the original range would have been, and there is under-counter space for a dishwasher and fridge. Beyond the kitchen are two utility rooms, one has space for freestanding fridges and freezers and the other has space for laundry machines and a cloakroom.
Off the large landing with linen store, the first floor has four bedrooms, three are sizeable double rooms, one with en suite facilities and bay window. There is also a family shower room. The second floor has a further three double bedrooms, one of which has a further large room attached to it currently used as a home office, as well as en suite facilities. There is also a family bath and shower room on this level.
