Situation

Topsham remains a highly desirable estuary town of nationwide renown. Its excellent amenities include independent shops, restaurants and a well-regarded Primary school along with churches and Topsham’s popular open-air swimming pool, rugby club, bowls club and sailing club. Exeter Golf & Country Club is less than two miles distant. There is a frequent bus service and a very useful train link to Exeter City centre which is just 4 miles away and Exmouth which is around 6.5 miles away. The popular ‘Route 2’ bike path is a level, 16 mile route between Exmouth and Dawlish on the other side of the Exe Estuary.

Description

Located at the end of Strand, along a private no-through road is this detached house; on the market for the first time.

The first floor has been partly converted with an office/bedroom 5 and a door gives access to a large roof space that could be converted to additional accommodation, subject to the usual consents. Outside, the house sits roughly in the middle of the plot, with a large driveway with parking for a number of cars and a detached double garage at the front. At the rear, the garden is mainly lawn, with a number of mature shrubs and plants, a vegetable plot and being elevated; beautiful views over the house towards the River Exe.
