Situation

Exton lies on the east side of the river Exe estuary some 5 miles from the Cathedral city of Exeter with its comprehensive range of services and 5 miles from the coastal town of Exmouth, popular for its long sandy beach. Considered a special place to live, Exton has the benefit of a train station which provides easy access to Exeter and Exmouth. The Puffing Billy restaurant is within walking distance and offers a superb and varied menu. Access to M5 motorway, A38 and A30 are within commuting distance. Exton is within easy reach of St Peters Preparatory School and is also within the catchment area for Clyst Valley Community College and the award-winning primary schools at Woodbury Salterton and Clyst St. George.

Description

Located in the popular village of Exton, Old School House is an impressive period property, formerly Exton village school and recently upgraded to a very high standard throughout. Accessed via the original porch, the sitting room is a stunning room with vaulted ceiling, exposed roof timbers and a period fireplace with wood-burner. On the west side, a huge picture window offers views over the adjacent fields and the Exe estuary and a solid wood staircase rises to the first floor. The kitchen has been newly installed with a range of fitted appliances including a vented induction hob. Bi-fold doors open into the garden and Planning permission has been granted for a garden room. There is a large boot room with door to the front, a useful utility and downstairs cloakroom.
The Old School has an interesting layout, with two sets of stairs. From the sitting room stairs rise to a ‘floating’ landing which gives access to the master bedroom suite, from where beautiful views of the estuary are enjoyed. There is a sizeable luxury en-suite and walk-in wardrobe. The remaining accommodation includes two ground floor bedrooms, sharing a Jack and Jill shower room and a second staircase leading to the second bedroom with a large en-suite, study area and lovely dual aspect views of the estuary and towards Woodbury Common.
Outside, Old School House sits in a plot of 0.4 acres, which includes a large parking area to the front, detached double garage and a further garden behind the garage. To the rear is a lawned garden, with beautiful views along the Exe estuary and a seating area adjacent to the house.
Attached to the house is a single storey building; formerly the kitchen, which has Planning permission (ref. 19/1580/FUL) to be converted into a bedroom and en-suite. These rooms could be converted into an annexe or an office suite, as preferred.
