Believed to be built around 1810, St. Breock is an attractive symmetrical three-bay family home and offers light-filled flexible accommodation arranged over two floors, incorporating a selfcontained two-storey annexe. The property has been completely refurbished to combine all the amenities of modern living with a wealth of retained character features including high ceilings, ornate cornicing, wooden flooring and casement windows with some original shuttering.
The ground floor accommodation flows from a welcoming reception hall and comprises a spacious front aspect sitting room with woodburning stove and a generous front aspect dining room with feature cast iron fireplace, both with full-height casement French doors to the front aspect.
There is also a well-proportioned study which gives access to the neighbouring family room in the annexe. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a large kitchen with a spacious fitted utility room leading to an extensive workshop. The kitchen offers a range of wall and floor units with wood effect worktops, and space for a table for more informal dining.
On the first floor the property provides a generous master bedroom with fitted dressing room and spacious en suite shower room. There are three further well-proportioned front aspect bedrooms, two with original fireplaces and all featuring full-height French doors leading to shallow bowed cast iron balconies. A spacious fully-tiled family bathroom can also be found on the first floor, comprising a freestanding bath, separate walk-in shower and feature cast iron fireplace.
The rear left service wing offers self-contained annexe accommodation comprising a family room, a sitting room with feature bow window and a generous first floor bedroom with en suite shower room, and access to a spacious triple aspect glazed conservatory with garden access. The annexe can also be accessed through the garage and via a small courtyard.
St. Breock is approached over a lowmaintenance gravelled front garden screened by mature hedging with steps up to a central 6-panel front door with pilasters and overlight. A side driveway gives access to the integral workshop. The remaining grounds to the rear of the property extend to around 0.25 acre, unusual for a town centre location. The grounds feature a paved courtyard, areas of sloping lawn, numerous seating areas and a contemporary summer house with feature garden pond and decked terrace, ideal for entertaining and al fresco dining, the whole enjoying farreaching views over the town and surrounding countryside. The annexe benefits from its own parking and private front courtyard.
Set in the Vale of the River Creedy and surrounded by gentle, rolling hills, the ancient market town of Crediton, formerly the capital of Devon, offers a wide range of day-to-day amenities including a traditional bustling High Street with artisan shops, public houses, a GP surgery, secondary schooling and a railway station on the Tarka Line (Barnstaple to Exeter). The historic cathedral city of Exeter is approximately 8.5 miles away and has a number of well-regarded schools for children of all ages, one of the best universities in the country and a variety of supermarkets including Waitrose. Exeter also has excellent cultural and recreational facilities with many restaurants, the Princesshay shopping development, John Lewis, David Lloyd Private Health Club, Exeter City Football Club and the prominent Rugby Stadium of the Exeter Chiefs. Exeter also has mainline railway stations on the Waterloo and Paddington lines, while Exeter International Airport provides an ever-increasing number of domestic and international flights including twice daily flights to London City.
The area offers access to a good selection of Primary and Secondary schools including Haywards Primary School, Sandford School and Queen Elizabeths. Renowned independent schools include St. Wilfrids, Exeter Cathedral School, The Maynard and Blundells.
