This substantial, detached residence occupies a quiet position in the highly desirable village of Exton, next to the Exe estuary and around three miles away from Exmouth.

Originally constructed more than 100 years ago, the house has been sympathetically enhanced and mixes a lovely blend of modern fixtures and fittings with some period features. The beautifully presented family home, named Dunstan House, has been tastefully upgraded and extended by the current owners to a very high standard throughout.

Exmouth Journal: This wonderfully open space is bathed in natural light

Inside, the well-proportioned sitting room has a lovely, large bay window overlooking the garden, exposed wooden floorboards and a recess for a fire, while the lounge benefits from direct access to the garden via a single French door. A dual-aspect study can be found at the front of the property.

At the heart of the house is the showstopping open plan kitchen/dining/family room. This wonderfully open space is bathed in natural light and has an impressive polished concrete floor, bi-folding doors leading out to the garden, and a range of high-end kitchen units with a stylish contemporary look.

Exmouth Journal: The bathroom has a roll-top bath and double shower

On the first floor, there are five double bedrooms and a luxurious family bathroom with a roll-top bath and walk-in shower. The principal bedroom is particularly spacious and benefits from a walk-in wardrobe, a Juliet balcony overlooking the garden and a stunning ensuite bathroom with a roll-top bath and double shower.

Outside, the west-facing rear garden has been designed with low maintenance in mind and is mainly laid to lawn with a large patio area, which is a wonderful spot to soak up the afternoon sun. There is also a useful summer house/garden office with power and bi-folding doors.

At the front of the house, the paved driveway provides enough parking space for several cars and leads to a large, detached garage.
