Situation

Topsham is an estuary town of nationwide renown, reflected in its characterful period cottages and houses, perfectly blended with a range of more modern homes. Its excellent amenities range from a splendid selection of shops, to churches, a swimming pool, restaurants, several pubs, a school, as well as a bowling and sailing club There is also a frequent bus service and a train link between Exmouth and Exeter.

Description

Located at the end of a cobbled boat alley in the centre of this historic former port, this is an important property, originally constructed for a ship’s captain during the 17th century.

Mentioned in 'Pevsner’s Buildings of Devon', and as a Building of Local Importance (although not Listed), the house retains a number of fine features associated with this architectural period, in particular a splendid sitting room with original plastered ceiling. The accommodation is arranged over four levels, and of particular note is a stunning new kitchen, utility room and informal dining wing (with ground floor bedroom suite) looking out onto the large well-stocked private garden. The previous kitchen/dining room on the lower ground floor has been retained to enable the house to be used for a variety of purposes (with the possibility of an annexe and/or space to satisfy any teenager’s need for privacy, or perhaps a home office). On the first floor is the master bedroom with a recently installed shower room adjoining and an office/dressing room/nursery. To the top floor are two further double bedrooms and a second shower room, as well as lovely views over Topsham rooftops towards the Haldon Hills. There is also a courtyard garden to the front.
