Light and bright 3 bedroom link-detached home with parking and south west facing garden in quiet cul-de-sac in sought after Pennsylvania area.
Sylvania Close occupies a tucked away location in the leafy residential area of Pennsylvania on the northern fringe of Exeter. Well placed to make the most of city living with the benefits of being almost in the countryside. The University is a short distance as is Morrisons supermarket, and there are nearby well regarded infant and primary schools, as well as a community hall with a number of activities and classes on offer. Close by are walking and bridle paths, and Belvidere and Mincinglake Valley Parks. There are hidden neighbourhood gems such as a farm shop and riding school with popular neighbourhood ‘horse box café’. There is also a regular bus route in to the city centre.
The hallway houses a storage cupboard with newly installed electrical fuse box, and there is a useful downstairs cloakroom with WC and corner wash hand basin. Off the entrance hall is a well-proportioned kitchen dining room with window overlooking the garden and doorway out in to it, and a dual aspect lounge bathing the property in light, with a window to the front and a deep display bay window overlooking the garden. Additionally, steps lead down to a further reception room which was converted by the current vendor from the original garage, but without compromising parking for the property. Again dual aspect, and with door opening on to the garden, it maximises the light and the potential of the downstairs accommodation offering great versatility of use.
Off the entrance hallway is the stairway to the landing with window to the front, cupboard housing the boiler, and access to the loft space. There are three upstairs bedrooms- bedrooms one and three overlook the garden, with bedroom one having in-built wardrobes across one wall. The bathroom has a white suite comprising WC, wash hand basin, and shower over bath, and there is a frosted glazed window to the front.
The property is double glazed and centrally heated throughout.
The enclosed rear garden is set over two levels and is mainly laid to lawn. There are pretty planted borders well stocked with shrubs and perennials and both a useful garden storage shed and outside tap. On the lower level is a paved seating area. The garden is south west facing therefore affording the opportunity for al fresco relaxing and eating out in good weather. There is gated access to the side of the property.
At the front of the property are paved steps leading to a small gravelled area with shrubs. There is driveway parking for two cars.
All in all, this is a super property in a lovely part of the city and we recommend early viewing.
Agent’s Note: We are advised by the vendor that planning permission was previously granted for building over the converted garage.
Mains gas, electricity, water and drainage. Gas central heating.
If leaving the city centre proceed along Sidwell Street and then Old Tiverton Road. Go over the roundabout at the end of the road and proceed up Stoke Hill. At the top of the hill the road then dips. Take the next left turning in to Collins Road. Sylvania Drive will be found a short way up on the right-hand side. As the road bends round to the left the property will be found on the left.
