Situation

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, Topsham’s excellent amenities range from a good selection of independent shops, restaurants and pubs to churches, doctor’s 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.

Description

Located in the heart of the conservation area, a short walk from the river, shops and amenities is this Grade II Listed house on the market for the first time in approximately 70 years. In need of updating but offering a huge amount of potential, the accommodation briefly comprises two good sized reception rooms; both with open fires, a kitchen and separate breakfast room on the ground floor. On the first floor are 3 double bedrooms and the bathroom with a second staircase rising to a spacious loft; perfect for converting into additional living space, subject to the usual consents. Divided into 4 areas, the loft has a large number of exposed beams and windows allowing natural light. To the rear is a pretty, walled garden, with two brick-built storage sheds in need of repair and an outside WC. In close proximity, on a separate piece of land, the house has a detached double garage with power and light, with parking in front.
