St Johns Road, Exmouth
Guide price £475,000 | 4 Bedrooms
This beautifully presented property offers a wealth of charm and character and is located on the outskirts of Exmouth close to Woodbury Common. Built around 1830 as a farmhouse, it was converted into two separate dwellings in the 1980's and has been much improved by the current owners over the past two years. The accommodation offers two large reception rooms, a kichen/breakfast room and a cloakroom/utility room on the ground floor. The upper floors offer four double bedrooms, two with en suite shower rooms and a family bathroom. Outside there is a delightful cottage style garden and off road parking.
Impressive Grade II listed character property conveniently located between the towns of Exmouth and Budleigh Salterton. Country walks are close by on Woodbury Common, and the sandy beaches and cliffs of the Jurassic coast and the cycle path from Exmouth to Lympstone, with spectacular views across the Exe estuary, are easily reached.
The property is located in a quiet no through road close to the ancient St John in the Wilderness church. Exmouth town centre is conveniently located just 2.9 miles away with its variety of shops, bars and restaurants, and the picturesque town of Budleigh Salterton is just 3.1 miles away. The nearest junction to the M5 is 8.9 miles away and Exeter airport is at a distance of 9.7 miles. The lively university city of Exeter, with its beautiful cathedral, is just 11.1 miles away, and there is the added bonus of a twice hourly train service on the delightful local Avocet line which again offers wonderful views of the Exe estuary, and access to many Devon towns and villages as well as connections to the national rail network.
