Salutary Mount, EXETER

Available: £625,000


Eagle House, Salutary Mount offers an exciting opportunity for those seeking a major refurbishment/development project to acquire a substantial 'double fronted' period residence in the heart of Heavitree with large south-west facing gardens and a walled vegetable garden. The property offers the potential to be restored to its former glory as a large high end family home and there is good reason to believe that a large extension to the rear would be permitted to take full advantage of the sunny aspect and picturesque view down the private and established gardens. The property comes with two front doors and two staircases and will split naturally to form two houses without the need to carry out external alterations to the main frontage.

Eagle House was built in the late 19th Century and forms part of a group of houses with individual designs arranged as a terrace development. Some of the other houses in the group are listed Grade II and were built in the early 19th Century as part of a development known as Salutary Mount. Eagle House has a rendered façade with two bay windows to the ground floor. Two statues of eagles act as prominent finials to a parapet which fronts slated roofs and a range of chimney stacks. The eagle motif is repeated in a circular plaque to the centre of the elevation over the main entrance.

Triple garaging is approached by vehicle from Church Terrace and the large walled vegetable garden lies behind the garages. The property already comes with impressive formal gardens and these garages could be demolished and re-built at the far end of the vegetable garden to create a large expanse of walled off road parking for several vehicles, caravan, motor home, boat etc.

N.B. It should be noted that a piece of land was sold to the current owners of the adjoining property by the former owners of Eagle House and a covenant still exists today to prevent any building.

We understand the property offers development potential to be converted into luxury apartments or be divided into two separate homes. The walled vegetable garden also offers potential to be developed into a block of purpose built apartments, each with own private parking spaces, while still retaining vehicle access to the main house. Any development will be subject to planning permission and professional architect plans are available to view by appointment with Burgoynes Estate Agents on 01392 499823.
