NO ONWARD CHAIN - A fine example of a modernised Victorian home located on a quiet no-through private road in the sought-after St Leonards area of Exeter. Well placed between the historic quayside and the city centre. 2 Bedrooms, modern bathroom, study area, sitting room, dining room, kitchen and utility room plus loft room. Attractive 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 Kimberley Road, a peaceful, no-through private road. Bull Meadow Park, a lovely green open space with playpark, is just down the road. The historic quayside with its myriad of shops, restaurants and bars is close by, and the city centre with further shops, including the Princesshay Shopping Centre, restaurants and bars are also an easy walk away. There are several highly regarded schools in the vicinity and local facilities along Magdalen Road including independent stores, wine merchant, delicatessen, gift shops, cafes, bistro, pub and an award-winning fishmonger. Exeter has mainline rail links to London, Exeter airport is close by as is the M5 motorway.
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. Much of the ground floor features stripped and varnished wooden floorboards, all refitted by the current owners. The sitting room has a large bay window flooding the room with light and a cast iron feature fireplace with wooden mantel. The dining room has space for a large dining table and there is useful storage in the space below the stairs. Shelves have been built in either side of the chimney breast which has an open hearth with a period mantle. The kitchen has wood effect flooring with a range of white units with wood effect work surfaces. There is space for an undercounter fridge and dishwasher plus space for a
freestanding gas cooker, the window overlooks the garden. The utility room has space and provision for a washing machine, further storage, and gives access to the garden.
Upstairs, the master bedroom is a of generous proportions with a period feature fireplace, and the bay window allows in plenty of light. The second bedroom will also take a double bed and is currently in use as a study. The bathroom features a modern white suite with chrome fittings and a shower over the bath, wash basin and WC. On the landing is a space ideally suited to use as a study or reading area. A loft hatch with ladder accesses a useful loft room with eaves storage and a Velux window giving far reaching views towards Haldon.
To the rear of the property is a walled garden with mature planting to the borders including three pear and three apple trees producing an abundance of fruit with which the current owner makes chutney for the street. Gravel is laid to the centre creating a wonderfully sheltered and low maintenance private outside space. We understand that the boundary of the property extends into the private road including the parking space at the front of the property.
Mains water, drainage, gas and electricity. Gas central heating, double glazing.
Kimberley Road is located just off Bull Meadow Road which is in turn accessed from Western Way or Holloway Street.
