Gordon House is a beautifully presented Grade II Listed Georgian property that offers almost 2,800 sq. ft. of light filled, spacious and flexible accommodation. The property has been well-maintained and has retained its original features including large sash windows, a veranda, deep skirting boards and cornicing.
The ground floor accommodation is accessed from a welcoming and spacious reception hall with intricate tiled flooring. To the right of the entrance hall is a generous-size drawing room with a cast iron open fireplace; whilst to the left is a well-proportioned dining room plus a spacious sitting room with a raised woodburner and a cleverly-designed wood store beneath. The kitchen/breakfast room is at the rear of the house and is fitted with a range of units with granite worktops, a dual fuel Rangemaster and French doors to the veranda and rear garden. An under-stairs cloakroom completes the ground floor accommodation.
The first floor provides a large dual-aspect principal bedroom with a decorative fireplace and en suite shower room. There are three further well-proportioned double bedrooms, all with fitted storage, serviced by family bathroom.
Gordon House has the benefit of a one bedroom integral annexe with its own separate entrance; perfect for additonal family members or providing excellent potential for an income via letting.

Gordon House is set back from the road by a low-maintenace front garden, with steps leading up to the house and mature shrubs screening the property from the road. The well-maintained walled garden to the rear has a central lawn bordered by a pathway, colourful flowerbeds and offers a generous paved terrace covered by a glazed veranda which provides the ideal space for entertaining and al fresco dining. A gate at the foot of the garden gives access to the private parking, providing space for 4-5 vehicles.
Gordon House is situated in an enviable position in Heavitree, at the edge of St. Leonards, on the doorstep of all the fantastic amenities the cathedral city of Exeter has to offer. The house is perfectly located for access to the RD&E hospital, Exeter University and good schools including Exeter School and The Maynard. The Magdalen Road shops are also just around the corner and include an award-winning fishmonger and butcher, wine shop and bakery as well as three cafés, a pub and a delicatessen.
Exeter is the most thriving city in the South West and offers a wide choice of cultural activities with theatres, a museum, arts centre and a wealth of cafés, restaurants and good shopping including John Lewis and Waitrose. For outdoor enthusiasts, local leisure activities include cycling, surfing, sailing, horse riding and walking. The national parks of Dartmoor and Exmoor are within easy reach, as are the beautiful beaches of East, North and South Devon.
Communication links are excellent: the M5 provides links to Bristol and the national motorway network; whilst regular trains from Exeter St. David's to London Paddington take as little as just over two hours. Exeter Airport offers a number of domestic and European flights.
To locate the private parking spaces, turn onto Church Terrace from Magdalen Road, and then almost immediately, after the white wall and blue gates, turn left through the brown gates. This space is owned by Gordon House and provides private parking for 4-5 vehicles.Read all
