Off the front hall is a second sitting room which could easily be a third double bedroom and is currently used for guests. In addition to having independent access to the garden, it has the convenience of a large, fully equipped shower room next door.
Upstairs, the double-aspect master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom and fitted cupboards and there is a further bedroom on this floor, both with blissful views across the gardens.
The formal gardens are around half an acre and are overlooked from the delightful terrace, which runs along the back of the house. There is a small copse off to the side and beyond there the lawn extends to the sloping paddock currently kept as a wild flower meadow. Above, at the top of the paddock, is a long, flat area which can be reached via a gate from the lane offering ideal independent access for a horse trailer.
Nearby Chudleigh is a popular country market town offering a good primary school and everyday shopping facilities. Starcross is situated on the estuary and also has local shops as well as a very popular sailing club and a railway station with a direct service to London Paddington. The pretty village of Kenton also has a good primary school and post office.
There are beaches nearby at Teignmouth and Dawlish Warren and delightful forest walks in the hills within half a mile of the house.
With the city of Exeter with its shopping, theatre, great schools and excellent transport links only ten miles away this is a great chance to escape to the country with the benefits of cosmopolitan living on your doorstep.
This property is on the market with Knight Frank at a guide price of £595,000. For more information call Isabel Clifton on 01392 423111 or email email@example.com
