A fine example of a modernised Victorian home located on a quiet no-through road in one of the most sought after areas of Exeter. Only a short walk from the historic quayside, and not far from the city centre. 2 Bedrooms, luxurious bathroom, sitting room, dining room, kitchen and utility room. Enclosed rear garden.
Retaining the charm of a bygone era this sympathetically modernised period home is located in the sought-after St Leonards area of Exeter on a peaceful no-through road. The historic quayside with its myriad of shops, restaurants and bars is a short walk from the lower end of the road, and the city centre with its associated facilities are also close at hand. The Riverside Valley Park provides some lovely walks, and there are opportunities for paddle boarding or cycling along the River Exe and the Ship Canal, leading to Exeter Quay or all the way to the famous Turf Locks Pub. 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.
The front of the property is set back from the pavement behind a low brick wall providing a small garden area and bin storage. The front door opens to the entrance vestibule which in turn opens to the hall where stairs rise to the first floor. The property retains many features that make this era of homes so popular, and fortunately has not been overly modernised. The sitting room has a large bay window flooding the room with light and a feature fireplace with tiled surround and wooden mantel. The dining room features stripped and varnished wooden flooring with exposed brick feature walls with space for a wood burning stove recessed in the chimney breast. There is useful storage in the space below the stairs. The kitchen has a tiled floor with a range of wood effect units with granite effect work surfaces. There is space for a freestanding fridge freezer and freestanding gas cooker, a window overlooks the garden. The utility room as space and provision for washing and drying machines and gives access to the garden. Upstairs, the master bedroom is of generous proportions with stripped and varnished wooden floors and the bay window gives views towards the river. The second bedroom will also take a double bed. The luxurious bathroom has been beautifully made over by the current owners in a style to suit the property with a freestanding roll-top bath, double shower cubicle, vanity unit wash basin and WC.
The rear garden is south-east facing so gets the sun for most of the day and is fully enclosed by wooden fencing. With low maintenance in mind, the garden is partly decked and partly laid with artificial grass, and a garden shed provides additional storage.
