    Leasehold
  • 3 beds
    House
  • Scenic views of the River Exe, surrounding countryside and hills beyond.
  • Period home charm with a contemporary twist.
  • Private sunny garden, ideal for outdoor entertaining.
  • Peace and tranquillity, yet just a 10 minute walk from the Saddlers Inn.

Over the last three years, this three bedroomed flat has been lovingly brought back to life by the young family who live there, with style and respect for its heritage. They have many happy memories here; they love coming home from work and watching glorious sunsets over the river Exe to the Haldon Hills, a glass of wine in hand.

They planned their wedding from Tedstone House and later brought home their baby daughter here. They have invested time and love and money in the apartment. If you are looking for somewhere to move in and start enjoying living life, it is all here, nothing more to do. The flat may suit an active retired couple, or a young family; a glorious, restful, leafy retreat from the hurly burly of a working life in the city.

Stairs lead you up to the hallway and through to a well planned kitchen. Clean and uncluttered and with views over the walled garden belonging to the main house, a good spot for the cook in the family to get creative with the abundance of fine food and fish available right on your doorstep.

Family dinners, cosy breakfasts and lazy lunches are to be enjoyed in the country dining room within a few steps of the kitchen while a double doorway invites you through to a delightful large sitting room with spectacular views to the west. The flat has newly fitted central heating, but curling up on a winter night in front of the woodburner would be a particular joy.

To the bedrooms

Leaving the sitting room by a side door, you might take a quick peek in one of the two really useful and good sized store rooms, but follow the landing around and look at the main bedroom, which is almost 21 foot in length and almost 16 foot wide. Something about a generous sized bedroom isn’t there? So much more relaxing.

A rather swish ensuite shower room in one corner adds to the comfort but an inner hallway links both to a neat, little inner bedroom, perfect for the smallest one in your family and also to a huge dressing room, more than 21 foot long. Even the most ardent fashionista family might find it a challenge filling this one up!

Two more rooms to discover in this interesting property. The first, a family bathroom with character, including a handsome roll top bath where country views may make a long relaxing soak a regular ‘must do’ rather than an occasional treat.

A few steps away on the other side of the kitchen, bedroom two, room for a double bed or even two singles in here to accommodate family, or the friends who won’t be able to resist visiting.

The owners have created a beautiful, uncomplicated outdoor space to relax and enjoy a snooze, a leisurely perusal of the papers, or a barbecue with friends. Raised beds around the edges of this little garden give you scope to grow some of your favourite flowers and plants, while hedges give you privacy.

Out and about

The famous old riverside town of Topsham is within easy reach and is a popular spot with much to see and do, interesting shops and lovely restaurants as well as walks and cycle rides. The bird watching is a must even for those who have never tried it.

If you are sporty, there are great opportunities. Watch the all powerful Exeter Chiefs rugby team at their nearby ground, play golf at upmarket Woodbury Park, which also has an upmarket gym and spa. Or watch top class equestrian sports at Bicton Park.

Exeter is Devon’s county town and is a thriving cultural centre as well as being superb for shopping. The fine old seaside towns of Exmouth and Budleigh Salterton are within a few miles and the World Heritage Jurassic Coast, with its jaw dropping scenery, is waiting to be explored.

Transportation links to the rest of the country are good. Exeter Airport has flights both within the UK and across Europe is ten minutes away and Exeter St David’s station has 36 trains a day to London Paddington, the fastest taking a little over two hours.

And when it’s time for a special treat, hunt out Lympstone Manor, celebrity chef Michael Caines’ newly opened contemporary country house hotel, set in 28 acres of gardens, ground and parkland and within a five minute drive.

Leasehold

There is approximately 134 years remaining on the lease. Ground rent is £13 per annum. Private Drainage is 20% of the total which in previous years has been in the region of £60-65% of the total. There are currently no monthly maintenance or service charges, but like the drainage, when work is carried out, flat 6 share is 20% of the total.
