This charming period property occupies a position along a quiet lane in the heart of the popular estuary village of Exton.

The house is ideally located and benefits from glimpses of the Exe estuary and is a short walk to the waterfront, cycle path and train station.

The four-bedroom, detached dwelling is being brought to market for the first time in many years and comes with no onward chain.

Exmouth Journal: There is a large and light-filled conservatory

The detached house is believed to have been constructed circa 1910, and it has retained a number of period features such as leaded windows, focal fireplaces, picture rails and high ceilings.

On the ground floor, the sitting room has a charming open fireplace and double doors that open to a large and light-filled conservatory. The kitchen/dining room has a traditional look with an Aga and a separate electric cooker, while the second reception room, currently used as a music room, could be used as a formal dining room with the open fire as its focal point.

Exmouth Journal: One of the four bedrooms

On the first floor, there are four bedrooms, three doubles and one single. Two of the bedrooms have lovely distant views of the River Exe and the principal bedroom benefits from an ensuite shower room. A good-sized family bathroom completes this level.

Outside, the property is surrounded by well-established gardens that measure around a third of an acre. The largely level plot is mainly laid to lawn softened with a wealth of mature plants and shrubs, and a feature pond.

From the lane, there are two parking areas, a large garage or boat store and a second separate garage.
