Its excellent amenities include individual 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 in the heart of the conservation area and on the market for the first time in 30 years, a rare opportunity to purchase a detached 4 bedroom house. Originally believed to have been a coach house and stables for a property on Monmouth Street, the property was converted into a house many years ago, along with a number of extensions. Further improved and updated by the current owners, the house offers spacious and adaptable living accommodation, along with the potential for an annexe. To the front, in the older part of the property, is a sitting room with a wood-burning stove, whilst to the rear is a separate dining room and a third reception room overlooking the garden. There is also a kitchen, breakfast area, utility room and downstairs cloakroom. The property has two separate staircases, one leading to a bedroom with en-suite situated above the garage that also has concealed plumbing for a kitchen. The main staircase leads to three bedrooms, the main family bathroom and a 'Jack and Jill' en-suite. Outside, to the front of the house is an off-road parking space for one car and an electric roller door leading to a garage and workshop. To the rear of the garage, double doors open into the garden where it is possible to bring a trailer or boat. The main garden is a real feature of the house, being level and a good size, it is stocked with a variety of mature shrubs and plants with an area of grass, two ponds and space for a vegetable garden. There are also two sheds and a greenhouse.
