The tennis and cricket clubs are only 200m away from the house. The village has easy access to the M5 via the A30 and also has its own railway station on the Exeter to London Waterloo line making commuting very easy.

Description

The White House is the larger part of a generous sized family house which was
split up in 1951. The attractive Grade II Listed property which retains many of its original period features was built in 1868. The house has been conscientiously maintained to a high standard and great care has been taken to preserve its original features. It offers bright and spacious accommodation, the proportions of all the rooms being what one would expect of a property of this period and type. The property faces south east and the front and side enjoy a sunny aspect.
