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.
