Exton Cottage is a spacious 4 bedroom detached property in the sought after village of Exton, situated on a large plot of approximately 1/2 an acre. The original cottage dates back to the early 1900's, and was substantially extended in the 1980s to create a large family home, including four bedrooms, three bathrooms and three reception rooms. There is also a lovely conservatory, double garage and garden studio. With potential for improvement, a buyer can update this lovely property to their own specification.

The front door leads to an enclosed porch with inner door to the central hallway. From here the ground floor reception rooms are accessed and the staircase extends to the first floor. The sitting room on the West side of the house is a light and spacious room with dual aspect to the rear garden and side. Patio doors open onto the garden and allow light to flood in. Adjacent to the sitting room are the cloak room and the study, also with a rear aspect window overlooking the garden, and adjoining the study is the dining room; a versatile space central to the building. From here, double doors lead through to the conservatory which is perhaps the most charming feature of the house with its 180 degree views across the garden. An insulated roof has been added making it a usable space all year round.

On the East side of the property is the large kitchen/breakfast room which incorporates a comprehensive range of wall mounted floor standing wooden faced cupboards, display cabinets and drawers with roll edge work surfaces, integrated double oven, fridge and 4 ring gas hob with extractor above. There is also space for dishwasher and freezer, as well as plenty of room for a table and chairs. To the rear of the kitchen is a large utility with space for a washing machine and housing the Worcester combi boiler. An external door leads from the side of the kitchen to the garden and driveway/garage, making it the most convenient way to access the property.

The first floor is configured to maximise the views, with all four double bedrooms positioned to the rear of the building, overlooking the garden. The master bedroom is dual aspect with a good size en-suite and the second bedroom also benefits from an en-suite shower room. The family bathroom features a corner elliptical bath, low level WC and corner pedestal wash hand basin. There are also several recessed storage cupboards accessed from the landing.

Outside to the rear of the property is the large mature garden, attractively laid to lawn with surrounding flower beds and borders, and interspersed with a selection of trees and shrubs including a lovely weeping willow, eucalyptus, fir and fruit trees. There is also a vegetable patch tucked in the corner of the garden and a large wooden storage shed. To the side of the plot is good size garden studio which provides a useful space with electrical and facility for plumbing connections. It is ideal for use as a home office, additional bedroom or craft room and has a patio frontage. To the side of the property is a large driveway laid to gravel which provides parking for 4-5 cars. Additionally the large double garage provides further parking or storage with twin doors. There are solar panels on the garage although the owner has advised that the inverter requires replacement.

Exton Cottage is accessed from Mill Lane, with the house set back from Exmouth Road. Exton is perfectly located for everything the Exe Estuary and East Devon has to offer. Equidistant between Topsham and Lympstone, the village has a thriving community and is in the catchment of highly regarded primary and secondary schools. The nearby Exe Estuary trail is a scenic walking/cycle route with multiple public houses. Exton itself has a train station which provides services into Exeter which then provides services into London Paddington and Waterloo. Nearby Exeter International Airport provides flights both domestically and internationally. Exeter is 6.7 miles distant, Topsham 2.5 miles, Exmouth 4.4 miles, and central London 175 miles.
