Featured Properties


The property is situated in the primarily residential area of St Leonards and is less than a mile from Exeter City Centre. Nearby is Exeter's picturesque quayside, excellent local amenities in Magdalen Road "village", and the principal private schools and hospitals.

The property is understood to be an Edwardian building which was converted into flats in the immediate post-war period. A further extension was added, probably in the 1960's. The current layout is on three floors with the ground floor comprising three flats, the first floor 2 flats, and the second floor 1 flat.

To the front (north side) of the building there is a generous parking area, while to the west side there is an attractively landscaped garden with a variety of mature trees and shrubs some of which are subject to Tree Preservation Orders.

The property dates from about 1834 and it is constructed of red sandstone beneath a thatched roof and with a rounded wing at one end, where the thatched roof is brought down over a verandah on posts. From this end of the house there are some particularly fine views south and east across open countryside to the sea. There is a castellated single-storey extension believed to date from the 1950’s which expanded the kitchen and which has also provided for a shower room and utility room (to which an attractive conservatory has been added).

The accommodation is arranged over several levels and is full of charm and character. Three rooms at the eastern end are circular and there is a fine library with direct access to the gardens.

The gardens are a particular feature and they include attractive terraced lawns, winding gravel pathways, a host of mature trees and shrubs (including rhododendrons and a delightful rose garden) and at the lowest part of the gardens, which adjoin woodland, there is a pond.

The detached annexe provides useful occasional accommodation or studio/workshop space, and includes its own part-covered verandah with fine views. There are excellent parking and garaging facilities, plus a vegetable plot.

So far I have had two building surveys carried out by Drew Pearce. The first was carried out on an older 1810 cob building and was particularly detailed and highlighted a few important issues I had not been aware of when viewing the property. I do recommend their building surveys for older buildings especially. CA – Devon
