An attractive and spacious 4 bedroom detached family home with flexible accommodation
Manor Cottage is a well-appointed, detached family home, set some six miles south of Exeter in the Devon countryside. The property is finished to a good standard throughout, with four bedrooms and spacious, flexible living accommodation.
The ground floor features a central hall with wood burner that provides a focal point for the house. There are two light and airy sitting rooms with French doors, one of which has a wood burner. The kitchen and dining area is an open-plan living space. The kitchen has wooden units, integrated gas stove, oven and split ceramic sink. The dining area has plenty of natural light with French doors that lead out onto an enclosed courtyard.
There is one bedroom on the ground floor, with an en suite shower room, while on the first floor there are a further three bedrooms, including the master, which benefits from its own private staircase and shower room. A second staircase leads to the third and fourth bedrooms, plus the family bathroom.
The property is accessed via a driveway which provides plenty of parking. There is a heated double garage with extensive shelving adjacent to which is a purpose built heated office with a separate phone line. Landscaped lawned gardens with flowerbeds, shrubs and mature trees lie to the front of the house whilst to the rear there are further outbuildings and a greenhouse. There is a central paved courtyard, accessed from the sitting room and dining room.
Manor Cottage is located on Haldon Hill, surrounded by the prettiest Devon countryside, yet only approximately 6.5 miles to the south of the cathedral city of Exeter. The nearby village of Kenn has a beautiful church and a thriving local pub, The Ley Arms. The village of Kennford has a primary school and a village store/post office. The property is well located, having easy access to the A380, M5 and Exeter.
The Exe Estuary and South Devon coastline are within easy reach, whilst Exeter Racecourse is also close at hand, as is Haldon Forest Park, Teignmouth Golf Club and also Dartmoor, which offers many miles of beautiful walks, rivers for fishing and a selection of historic villages to explore.
Exeter is the most thriving city in the South West and offers a wide choice of cultural activities with the theatre, the museum, arts centre and a wealth of good shopping, including John Lewis, and an ever increasing number of restaurants. There is also a Waitrose supermarket in the city. Many primary and secondary schools can be found in Exeter including Exeter School and The Maynard; whilst Exeter University is recognised as one of the best universities in the country.
The M5 motorway at Exeter provides links to the A38 to Plymouth, the A30 to Cornwall, and Bristol and London to the North and East. There are regular rail services to London Paddington from Exeter taking just over 2 hours. Exeter International Airport provides an ever increasing number of domestic and international flights including two flights a day to London City Airport.
From Exeter, continue onto the A30 towards Cornwall. Continue for a mile and a half and then keep right to merge onto the A38 Devon Expressway. After three and a half miles, turn left, following the sign for Exeter Racecourse, and then at the roundabout, take the second exit, followed by the second left to re-join the A38 heading back towards Exeter. Filter off to the left immediately, and then after just less than a mile, you will find an entrance to a driveway on your left-hand side. Turn sharply left down the drive, and you will find the property on your right-hand side.
