This stylish property is a must view for families seeking a well placed home, just 3 miles from the city centre, in a sought after semi-rural location with large level garden and off road parking for several vehicles.

The property comes with a spacious reception hall, two generous reception rooms, kitchen/breakfast room, rear lobby, cloakroom WC, 3 double bedrooms, family bathroom and the home comforts of uPVC double glazing & gas central heating.
The property lies adjacent to a cycle route and a choice of cycle tracks take you all the way into the city centre. There is a regular bus service to and from the city centre and the property also enjoys the added convenience of being within easy reach of the M5 & A.30. Also walking/cycling distance from the Science Park, Met Office, Skypark and Sowton Industrial Estate/Business Park.

The area of Blackhorse used to be on the original main A30 road from Exeter to Honiton but was bypassed in the 1990s and a another bypass to the east of the village now links the new A30 to Cranbrook and the surrounding developments. The Black Horse, a traditional family pub/restaurant, is just down the road.
