From Exeter city centre take the B3183 in a north westerly direction, passing Exeter College on your left hand side and Streatham Drive, which leads to Exeter University on your right hand side. Continue along New North Road until you come to a red stone archway on your left hand side, drive through the archway and bear to the left where the property can be found after a short distance on the left.
Toad Hall is situated on the Taddyforde Estate. A secluded, private development just half a mile from the city centre ideally situated for The University of Exeter which has undergone an extensive investment in recent years with excellent facilities and the Northcott Theatre. St. David's railway station is within easy walking distance with the London Paddington train in just over 2 hours.
The location enjoys all the advantages of Exeters amenities including the excellent Princesshay and Guildhall shopping areas, making Exeter a major shopping centre with most familiar brands and a wide variety of restaurants and entertainment venues. There are a number of private school options including Maynards, The Cathedral School and Exeter School. Exeters historic quayside is a major attraction, a superb setting overlooking the River Exe and featuring a number of independent shops and eateries.
The Cathedral is a stunning example of Norman, Gothic architecture and the building was completed circa 1400 and features an early set of misericords, an astronomical clock and the longest uninterrupted vaulted ceiling in England.
A wonderful opportunity to purchase this unique, period detached house nestled in a very secluded, private position on the edge of the city centre. The property offers the perfect blend of stylish 1920s architecture with modern, contemporary living. The current owner has enhanced the accommodation to offer a large, family sized house with bright, airy, flowing accommodation set in the most delightful private, mature gardens.
A stone arch from New North Road leads into the Taddyforde Estate and Toad hall sits behind an impressive pillared entrance with wrought iron gates and villa style walls. The curved driveway provides ample off road parking and leads to the large double garage with remote control door. There is a lovely aspect to the house from the driveway, an elegant building set in its own private grounds. Toad Hall has the added benefit of a further detached 1920s garage with hardstanding a very short distance from the house. From the driveway steps lead through the gardens to the entrance door. It should be noted the property also benefits from a pedestrian gate and path to New North Road.
The stylish accommodation retains a wealth of period features and has been much improved to add that modern touch. The ground floor has a welcoming hallway and two wonderful, large reception rooms, both enjoying a very pleasant outlook over the gardens and featuring original windows and French doors in the living room.
The high-quality Magnet kitchen is finished in a high gloss champagne with stunning 'Deco Glaze' glass work tops, giving a stylish, polished finish. There is a very handy walk-in pantry. Just off the kitchen is a useful utility room and a ground floor WC.
A door from the kitchen leads into a large room, perfect as a home office, therapy room or playroom and has the added advantage of a separate access door from the outside. The conservatory is a pleasant room, a good size and has been recently restored to a high standard and enjoys an outlook directly over the pretty, private gardens and patio.
The first floor is approached by an elegant staircase with art deco style detail and tall window letting in plenty of light. There are two excellent storage cupboards on the landing and doors then open to four spacious bedrooms; three large double rooms and one large single. The family bathroom is superb, again modernised and enhanced to a high standard to feature a tiled shower area with high pressure mains shower unit. A contemporary floating wash hand basin with large wall mounted mirror with safety glass, a deep bath with shower attachment and close coupled WC. Chrome heated towel rail and very attractive part tiled walls and tiled flooring and three windows.
The gardens are a real feature of Toad Hall. A mature garden offering complete seclusion and privacy, arranged on tiers and incorporating a well-tended lawn and beautifully planted, mature borders offering colour all year around and planted with an array of flowers, shrubs and trees. There is an ornamental pond and a pleasant patio adjacent to the house and conservatory, a lovely place to sit and admire the garden and perfect for al fresco dining and entertaining.
