Offers in the region of £595,000 | 4 Bedrooms
A superb detached 4 bedroom house of quality standing in substantial grounds which include an extensive wonderful 'woodland' garden along with a more formal garden to the rear in an interesting tucked away yet highly convenient location. This is an ideal family house with tremendous potential and offered with no onward chain.
From the city centre, the simplest route is to proceed up Pennsylvania Road until reaching the traffic lights where you wants to turn right into Union Road. At the roundabout take the second exit onto Prince Charles Road which continues into Calthorpe Road which in turn becomes Beacon Heath. Follow the road passing the former Exhibition Fields on your right and Heath Brook Mews will be found on the left opposite a large thatched house before the little bridge.
Tucked away at the end of a short private drive this property is one of just 3 homes built originally in the 1990's and enjoys its own unique position with outlooks over its own almost "glade like" front and rear gardens. Exeter city centre lies within approximately two and a half miles from the property. The amenities are excellent with the development of both Princesshay and the Guildhall Shopping areas making Exeter a major shopping centre with most familiar brands and a wide variety of restaurants and entertainment venues. The University of Exeter has undergone an extensive investment in recent years with excellent facilities and the Northcott Theatre. There are a number of private school options including Maynards, The Cathedral School and Exeter School. Exeter historic quayside is a major attraction, a superb setting overlooking the River Exe and featuring a number of independent shops and eateries.
This is a lovely family home enjoying a leafy location and well situated for all major amenities. Close-by Pinhoe is one of Exeter’s most popular residential areas and sits on the north eastern fridge of the city. Locally there are a range of shops including a convenience store, post office, public house and eateries. There are larger supermarkets nearby and Pinhoe has its own primary school and a choice of secondary schools. As well as a regular bus service, Pinhoe railway station is on the Waterloo line and also travels back into the city centre with the option of the Paddington “faster train”. M5 junctions 29 and 30 are easily accessible along with the A road intersection and coastal routes to Exmouth and Sidmouth etc. Exeter airport is also not far away. Overall a fine property in a great location which the owners sole agents consider a very rare opportunity and therefore recommend early inspection.
This is a fabulous opportunity to purchase a fine family house standing in extremely large grounds and occupying a highly convenient location between the city centre and Pinhoe.
