Directions

From Exeter, leave the city in a westerly direction through St Thomas along the B3212. At the end of Cowick Street, at the traffic lights, go straight ahead and proceed up Dunsford Hill out of the city. At Pocombe Bridge continue straight on into the village of Longdown. On reaching the village take the turning right onto Chapel Hill just after the Lamb Inn. The property will be found in an elevated position on the left but due to the sharp turning you should drive past the entrance towards the Village Hall, turn around and access the drive from that direction.

Situation

The property is situated in an idyllic yet accessible location in the charming village of Longdown and has fantastic countryside views. Longdown is in a great location, being equidistant from the Cathedral city of Exeter and Dartmoor National Park. It has a highly regarded pub, The Lamb Inn and an active village hall. Exeter has a good range of educational, cultural and retail facilities and communications are excellent. The A30 dual carriageway, just 2.5 miles distant, links to the M5 and A38 and Exeter has two main line railway stations and an expanding international airport.

Description

A well-presented detached property enjoying an elevated position. The private drive approaches the property with ample parking and turning area. The property has a spacious entrance hall with study area, a dual aspect sitting room with log burner and stunning views. The kitchen / breakfast room is fitted with an extensive range of units and there is also the benefit of an additional utility area. Also to the ground floor is a large dining room with direct access to the sun terrace, a double bedroom with en suite, a further double bedroom and bathroom. Stairs lead to a double bedroom with exceptional views, having a large built-in wardrobe and access to a WC. Outside, the gardens extend to about half an acre. There is a double garage with electric roller doors. The gardens are to the front, side and rear and are well maintained, laid mainly to lawn and offer a good degree of privacy. There are also solar panels (hot water and electricity generating) plus a Tesla battery for further efficiency. Across the year, the property is very nearly self-sufficient for power.
