St Thomas, Exeter BEST & FINAL OFFERS BY 12 NOON WED 30 MAY 2018
Offers in the region of £175,000 | 3 Bedrooms
A fantastic opportunity to purchase a very well located late Georgian 3 bedroom terraced house with numerous features which has fantastic potential for modernisation and improvement coming to the market for the first time in many years having the benefit of great ground floor accommodation including a good sitting room/dining area and a large kitchen breakfast room too. There are pleasant urban garden outlooks from the rear. Outside there is a very spacious level garden at the rear needing attention but which has enormous potential . In a popular level location this is a gem in the making!
The property is situated in a great level location in a very well regarded position in St Thomas in the historic cathedral city of Exeter. The area has an excellent range of amenities nearby including schools, doctors surgery, restaurants, local shops and convenience stores including the local large Sainsbury's store which is not far away together with all the great amenities available in Marsh Barton. The property has pleasant urban garden outlooks from the rear. The city centre is also handy and there are many walks along the river and popular quay.
COMMUNICATIONS: The motorway (M5) is easily accessed via the A30 which also heads west towards Okehampton and on towards Cornwall. The A38 heading into South Devon and to Plymouth is also easily reached. Regular services of intercity trains operate from Exeter St Davids to London Paddington and from Exeter Central to London Waterloo. Exeter and Bristol Airports offer flights to a wide variety of national and international destinations.
DIRECTIONS: Drive from the city in a southerly direction proceeding over Exe Bridges and out onto Alphington Road, continue under the railway bridge and on towards Marsh Barton. Take the first right after the railway bridge into Sydney Road and then the third turning to the left into Regent Street. The house being sold will be found on the right hand side.
The property is very well positioned in the road and it enjoys very pleasant open urban garden outlooks from the rear. In the same ownership for many many years the house was believed to have originally been built in the late Georgian era and still has a number of features but would now benefit from complete updating and modernisation throughout, however the potential for the creation of a very comfortable and spacious home in a good level location is enormous.

On the ground floor there is a good sized sitting room / dining room together with a covered yard/utility and there is a good sized kitchen too.
