This most attractive and individual property was developed in the Regency period and in the style of the ornate architecture of the London 'Strawberry Hill' houses. Striking features include gothic style lattice windows, drip mould facias and a water reed thatch roof. Thoroughly modernised by the present owner around fifteen years ago, the characterful accommodation has gas central heating and offers flexible accommodation arranged over three floors.
On entering the property through the impressive porch, an entrance hallway with good storage leads into a living room with a front facing window, having a seat and shutters and enjoying a westerly aspect. The sitting room is of a particularly good size and enjoys a double aspect with west facing French doors opening into the garden. The centre piece of the room is a brick fireplace with stone surround. The kitchen/breakfast room is generous in size and well-lit with a lantern window and glazed doors to the garden. Bespoke timber units incorporate a butlers sink, there is a gas fired Aga, the cooker and dishwasher are included and a pantry houses a wall mounted gas boiler. There is a useful utility room with WC and basin and the washing machine and tumble dyer are included.
The first floor landing offers ample space for bookshelves, is well lit by rear facing windows and has stairs rising to the second floor. All bedrooms enjoy a front facing aspect westerly with views over the garden. The main bedroom features a bay window, built in wardrobe, sealed fireplace and an en suite shower room. Bedrooms two and three are both good size double rooms, bedroom three having built in storage and a sealed cast iron fireplace. There is a separate bathroom and shower room, both fitted with white suites. On the second floor landing is a storage cupboard and access to the roof space providing further storage. Bedroom four is a twin room and enjoys the best views in the house across to the golf course and Muttersmoor.
The property is approached via a private gravelled driveway leading to three off road parking spaces. A pathway leads into the beautifully kept gardens which lie to the front and side of the house, both enjoying sunny aspects. The gardens are very well stocked with a patio adjoining the front of the house, making the most of the westerly aspect.
This delightful plot which offers much privacy and seclusion lies within a conservation area, only a short walk from The Byes and River Sid, the town centre and seafront. The bustling town centre has numerous independent shops and High Street chains, an elegant Regency esplanade, with amenities such as beautiful public gardens, regular bus services to the surrounding area, a theatre and sports clubs to include an eighteen hole golf course. Honiton with rail connections to London is approximately 10 miles away and the cathedral city of Exeter with its international airport is around sixteen miles.
