The property is approached through twin iron gates over a front garden with an area of level lawn and a parking space. In need of maintenance and offering real landscaping potential, the good-size garden to the side and rear of the property is laid mainly to lawn and features a detached brick-built outbuilding and two sheds, the whole screened by mature shrubs and trees. In total, the property occupies a plot of about a third of an acre.


Clyst Honiton is a popular East Devon village with a good range of day-to-day amenities including a church, playing field and three popular public houses. The nearby cathedral City of Exeter is the most thriving city in the South West and offers excellent cultural and recreational facilities with many restaurants, wine bars and cafés. Highlights include a number of theatres, the RAMM museum, an arts centre, the Princesshay shopping development, John Lewis, IKEA and numerous independent shops. The area offers a good number of well-regarded educational options including St. Martin’s C of E Primary, Exeter School, The Maynard and Exeter College (Ofsted rated Outstanding), as well as one of the best universities in the country in Exeter. Communications links are excellent: the property is well-located for access onto the A30, and the M5 provides links to the national motorway network and the A38. There are regular services from Exeter St. David’s, some of which take as little as just over two hours. Exeter Airport provides a good range of flights to domestic and international destinations.


From Exeter, join the A30 in the direction of Honiton. Take the B3174/B3184 exit signposted Cranbrook/Exeter Airport and at the next roundabout take the 5th exit onto the B3184. At the following roundabout take the 1st exit, and soon after at the crossroads, turn right signposted for Marlborough Cottages. The property is found shortly afterwards on the right hand side.
