Situation

Clyst St. George is the most southern of the six Clyst parishes in the valley of the River Clyst. Over the years it has proved a popular village, being favoured largely due to its geographical location in relation to Exeter city centre, which is about five miles away. Clyst St. George has an excellent Church of England Primary School with a splendid pre-school linked to it and the village falls within the catchment area for both Exmouth Community College and Clyst Vale Community College. There is an Anglican church, a village hall, the St. George & Dragon pub and the locally renowned Dart's Farm Shopping Complex is also close by. Many functions and activities take place on a regular basis in the village and there is a thriving Cricket club.

Description

Located in this popular and picturesque East Devon village, not far from Exeter, less than 2 miles from Topsham and a short walk to Darts Farm, Pytte House is an impressive former Manor House. The ancestral home of the Gibbs family – George Gibbs, treasurer to the Royal household, was to become Lord Wraxall of Clyst. St George. Originally built in the 16th Century, the house was extended in the 18th Century and then underwent a major refurbishment early in the 20th Century in the Arts and Craft style. Enlarged and remodelled in 1911, the house was kept as a family home until the 1950s when it was divided into six separate freehold properties, with No. 3 retaining many period features including high ceilings and leaded windows. Presented in good order throughout, there is a kitchen with large roof light and Aga, a separate dining room with block parquet flooring and a sitting room with open fire and doors out to the garden. The accommodation is arranged over three floors, with three double bedrooms including a master en-suite and a family bathroom on the first floor, and a fourth double bedroom on the second floor. To the rear is a delightful garden with a southerly aspect, laid mainly to lawn with patio area. To the front is a large gravelled parking area for 4/5 cars, plus a garage and car-port.
