From the Topsham office of WG, turn right and head along Fore Street. At the mini-roundabout by The Lighter Inn, go straight across and take the exit onto Strand. Continue along Strand for approx. 150m - 200m and Lower Shapter Street will be found on the left hand side, just after Higher Shapter Street.
Topsham is a well-regarded, pretty estuary town, just 4 miles from the cathedral city of Exeter. Recently named by The Sunday Times as the best place to live in the South West of England, Topshams excellent amenities range from a good selection of independent shops, restaurants and pubs to churches, doctors surgery, primary school, museum, bowls club, tennis courts and sailing club. There is an open-air swimming pool open in the warmer months, with further sports facilities available at Exeter Golf & Country Club, David Lloyd Leisure and Woodbury Park. Part of the Route 2 cycle path goes through Topsham; the Exe Estuary Trail from Exmouth to Dawlish Warren. Well connected, Topsham offers easy access to the M5 at Junction 30 and also benefits from a train station and regular bus service.
Located in the heart of Old Topsham and just a few minutes' walk from Strand and the River Exe is this delightful Grade II listed building, constructed around 1740 and divided into 3 separate apartments. On the top floor and accessed via an external staircase, this apartment offers spacious, very well presented accommodation, whilst retaining a number of period features. From the entrance, stairs rise to a hall giving access to the principal rooms. There is a bespoke kitchen with a wooden worktop, washing machine and fridge freezer.
The sitting room is large enough for a dining table and has a beautiful view along the street to the boats in the river and beyond. There are two double bedrooms, a bathroom and separate WC and being on the top floor, lovely views over rooftops across Topsham.
Accessed via separate steps from the sitting room and bedroom two, are two very useful loft spaces. In the front eaves with exposed timbers, both have power, heating and light with one having stunning estuary views as far as Exmouth and and providing additional space for occasional use.
With committed sellers, the apartment is an excellent opportunity to purchase a 'lock up and leave' apartment in a fabulous location.
