Are you looking for a country home but within easy reach of Exeter? This could be the one for you!
Situated approximately 9 miles from the centre of Exeter in an enviable rural position, Worth Cottage is a lovely country home with no near neighbours, offering a quiet rural position yet within easy reach of the excellent amenities and communications that Exeter has to offer. The cathedral city of Exeter offers a wide range of shopping and leisure facilities including theatres and a thriving nightlife, with countless bars and restaurants but is also a great hub for commuters. The International Airport is situated to the East of the City, mainline train stations and the M5 are all easily accessible.
Of course, it's not all about going to work! Step out onto quiet country lanes for walks and with the National Trusts Killerton House just down the road as is Ashclyst Forest, there is an array of walking opportunities right on the doorstep.
The house occupies grounds of a third of an acre and sits amidst typical Devonshire countryside with open views to the south, Dartmoor being visible on a clear day. Being level, the gardens are easy enough to maintain and once the grass is cut, there is then plenty of time to enjoy in the 32ft heated swimming pool. If the pool is too lively, why not keep an eye on the children from the jacuzzi whilst enjoying the lovely views.
The gated driveway opens to offer plenty of parking and the double garage offers plenty of scope, currently being used as a gym with a study above. Why not work form home or maybe convert it into independent accommodation for a relative or older child. Having said this, it would be easy enough to turn it back into a garage.
The house itself offers spacious accommodation with light and airy reception rooms. You'll probably spend a lot of time in the family oriented kitchen / dining room which is complimented by a utility room and cloakroom. The sitting room is triple aspect, and patio doors open to the pergola sheltered patio area with its stone built barbeque and pretty borders, making for the perfect entertaining space for those warm summer evenings. In addition, on the ground floor and accessed from the utility room, is a family room, currently used as a Cinema room but along with the utility, cloakroom and en-suite bedroom above, an annexe or letting unit could be created.
On the first floor, the en-suite served master bedroom is a great size with a pleasant and private outlook over the garden. This bedroom has independent access to the outside, again offering up potential for bed and breakfast etc.. Three further good sized bedrooms and a family bathroom with both shower and a bath complete the accommodation.
This is an excellent house with so much going for it - don't hesitate - get in touch and book a viewing!
Mains electricity, water and private drainage. Oil fired central heating and hot water.
