This double-fronted 1920s family house occupies an elevated position in Exmouth and is within walking distance of the town centre and all of its amenities.

The five-bedroom period property is presented to a very high standard throughout and has been subject to various significant improvements, made by the current owners.

Exmouth Journal: There are two bay-fronted reception rooms

Beyond the bright and open entrance hallway, there are two bay-fronted reception rooms. The family room has lovely square proportions, wooden flooring and a dual-fuel wood burner while the double sitting room is especially spacious and has wooden flooring, a period-style cast-iron gas fire and patio doors that open to the landscaped garden.

The sizeable kitchen has a modern, contemporary look with a wide range of white cupboards, wooden work surfaces and built-in appliances. A conservatory leads off the kitchen and provides a lovely bright dining area overlooking the garden. There is also a double-aspect study that overlooks the garden.

Exmouth Journal: The landscaped garden has various points of interest

On the first floor, a spacious landing leads to four good-sized double bedrooms and one single. The principal bedroom benefits from open views across the town, fitted wardrobes and a well-appointed ensuite bathroom with underfloor heating and a walk-in shower. The guest bedroom has a period fireplace and lovely open views with glimpses of the Exe estuary.

The fifth bedroom is a single and would work well as a dressing room or nursery. The refitted family bathroom has a high-end contemporary look and is fully tiled with underfloor heating.

Outside, the large rear garden has been tastefully landscaped and has various points of interest. This lush, green outdoor space has been carefully designed and displays a wealth of mature shrubs, colourful flowers, areas of lawn, raised borders, a vegetable garden and a greenhouse.

There is parking for several cars and a detached double garage.
