Property Summary

An exciting opportunity to acquire this substantial 3 bedroom detached family sized house built in 1950's. The well maintained property is situated in a sought after residential area and benefits from a large and level rear garden, off road parking for several vehicles and a detached garage. Care has been taken to maintain the house to a good standard and the property offers exciting scope for new owners to modernise and perhaps extend. Extension potential is likely to include an attic conversion and a full width rear extension to create a large open-plan kitchen/diner/family room subject to p.p. Such is the size of the rear garden there is also the potential to build a substantial garden lodge/home office.
The property comes with a reception hall, lounge, dining room, kitchen, downstairs cloakroom/wc, 3 bedrooms and a bathroom. More recent improvements include the installation of a new gas central heating system and combi boiler some 6 years ago and the property also benefits from the home comforts of uPVC double glazing.
This particular stretch of Topsham Road has the attraction of lying within close proximity of King George V Playing Fields and good road links leading to and from the city centre, the M5, A30 & A38.

King George V Playing Fields is just a few hundred yards away and Ludwell Valley Park is a brisk 10 minute walk giving extra appeal to keen walking enthusiasts and dog owners. Furthermore it is easy to pick up various cycle paths including a picturesque riverside path taking you to Exeter's vibrant maritime quayside or the Estuary town of Topsham leading on to Lympstone and Exmouth.

Strong interest anticipated and early viewings recommended.

Walking enthusiasts and dog owners can either walk 10 minutes to Ludwell Valley Park or pick up the public footpath down on the river linking to Exeter's historic and vibrant maritime quayside along the Eastern bank of the river past the Salmon Pool and Trews Weir. You can also enjoy easy cycle rides to two of the most popular riverside pubs in the area, namely, Double Locks and Turf Locks. The popular local pub, The Tally Ho, is just a five minute walk. Further recreational facilities include the nearby King George V Playing Fields and a cycle track that meanders up the Exe Estuary and across the wetland nature reserve on the other side of the river.
