From Topsham and Exeter, head towards Exmouth along the A376. On entering the village, pass the petrol station and the house is along on the right hand side.
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.
Located in the highly desirable estuary village of Exton, this spacious Edwardian family home is believed to have been constructed in 1905. Updated and extended, the house has been modernised whilst retaining a number of fine period features.
The front door opens into a large porch with a second door into the entrance hall, from where the staircase rises to the first floor.
There are three reception rooms; a formal dining room with period fireplace, a sitting room with a woodburner and two sets of French doors into the garden and a drawing room with French doors into the garden.
A lovely feature of the property is the kitchen/dining room. Constructed more recently, it is a spacious vaulted room fitted with wood-fronted units, a granite worktop and a range cooker. There is attractive tiled flooring and doors out to the garden.
Downstairs also benefits from a very nice shower room and a useful utility.
On the first floor is a good-sized landing and 4 double bedrooms. Bedroom 1 has an en-suite (with shower and free-standing bath), and along with two other rooms aswell, access onto the balcony which spans the width of the house and offers lovely views over the garden, to the Haldon hills in the distance. The main bathroom is also on the first floor.
Outside, to the rear is a lovely garden measuring around a third of an acre, with a westerly elevation. Mainly laid to lawn, the gardens are a real feature with a variety of established plants and trees, an outdoor swimming pool, a shed and a greenhouse.
To the front is an in-out driveway, with parking for a number of cars, and a 4-car garage with workshop. The total plot measures 0.4 of an acre.
As the house name might suggest, the property has the benefit of two wells, aswell as being connected to Mains water.
