This three-bedroom family home occupies a part of a Grade II listed period building on the eastern side of Exmouth.

The period property, and its grounds, were renovated by the highly regarded Dorset developer, C J Fry and Son, who painstakingly restored the house back to its former glory. The high ceilings and many beautifully designed windows, including Gothic arches, reflect the architecture of the time. Following a complete refurbishment, Withycombe House now sits inside a private housing development, Hillcrest Gardens, with a village-like environment, and a mix of property styles and open spaces.

Inside, the property is beautifully presented and retains many original features. The spacious living/dining room is flooded with natural light and has several period touches such as an ornate ceiling rose, decorative cornicing and a Victorian-style fireplace with a wood burner. The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a bespoke range of units with marble worktops, a central island and several integrated appliances. Character features include a window seat and an original fire surround with a wood burner.

On the first floor, there are three bedrooms and a family bathroom with an original Gothic-style paned window. The principal bedroom benefits from an ensuite bathroom and a dressing room with built-in wardrobes.

Outside, there is an attractive paved area with stone chippings and mature trees, an enclosed area of lawn area with hedging and ornamental trees and a further lawn opposite woodland.

There is a garage plus one allocated parking space and use of three visitor spaces.
