This is a desirable, three bedroom end of terrace house overlooking the Castle. Built in the 1920's, it is brimming with original features and as such, is a lovely family home.
This is an attractive three bedroomed end of terrace family house built in the 1920s. The property probably has one of the best outlooks in the town, as it is situated opposite Tiverton's 12th Century castle and St Peter's Church.
The house is oozing with original features such as pretty tiled flooring, high skirtings, picture rails, original doors and floorboards and has a lovely warm feel as soon as you walk in. It is nicely set back from the footpath by a small front garden, edged with shrubs. The front of the house has been recently decorated and the original front door is painted in a period sage green and sets the ambiance for this lovely home, leading you into the entrance lobby with its original tiled floor.
An original internal door with pretty glass inlays leads into the main hallway, again with stunning original tiling to the floor and traditional arching to the high ceiling. There is great under stair storage and doors to all principal rooms on this level.
The lounge sits at the front of the house with a large bay style window looking directly over to the castle. There is a nice fireplace providing a focal point (although not in use). I particularly like the separate dining room as this adds to the traditional feel of the home. It has original cupboards flanking the fireplace and a window to the rear garden, which could be replaced with French doors if desired.
The kitchen is at the rear and opens directly into the garden. There are original terracotta tiles on the floor and the units have been hand painted in a soft sage green, really suiting the period of the house . There is plenty of worktop space and cupboards and an integrated gas hob, electric cooker and fridge freezer.
The original wood staircase leads to upstairs, firstly to the bathroom with its freestanding clawfoot bath, shower cubicle, wc and basin. Two windows flood this room with natural light.
Steps lead up to the central landing with storage and access to the three bedrooms. The double to the rear is presently used as the master. With a pretty French theme, it has an ornamental fireplace and overlooks the garden. The double to the front looks out onto the castle, as does the adjacent single bedroom, presently used as an office space.
I really love the garden here, it is not overlooked at all and feels like a little sanctuary here in the middle of town - a real suntrap in warmer months. It is partially paved with the rest laid to lawn and to the side of the house, a great shed/little man cave, with power and lighting. An alleyway leads to the front of the house which surprisingly has space for a further shed or storage if required.
This lovely home is about 300 yards from the town centre, making in an ideal location for all town amenities. The property does not have parking, however there is plenty of on street parking available nearby and permits are available for local carparks, if desired.
Tiverton is a thriving market town with a good shopping centre and an excellent range of educational and recreational facilities. The town has fast dual carriageway access to Junction 27 of the M5 motorway with an adjacent British Rail Parkway station.
From our office proceed around Angel Terrace into St Peter Street. At the church turn left into Park Hill and proceed past the church for approx 100 yards where number 17 can be found on the opposite side of the road.
