An attractive Grade II Listed townhouse with planning permission to extend, situated in St. Leonards
30 Wonford Road is one of a pair of houses designed in a pared-down Italianate style. In its current configuration, it offers over 1,200 sq. ft. of accommodation arranged over four floors, cleverly combining the amenities of modern living with retained period features including some sash windows, French oak flooring and an original fireplace. The property benefits from existing planning permission to convert the basement and to add a substantial glass-roomed extension, offering the prospective purchaser the opportunity to create further living space.
The ground floor accommodation flows from a welcoming reception hall with useful storage and includes a spacious sitting room with a fireplace and gas effect burner, and opens into a stylish kitchen which offers a range of high-gloss units, modern integrated appliances, a walk-in larder and a bay window with space for a dining table overlooking the garden. The whole combines to create an ideal family and entertaining space.
On the first floor the property provides two well-proportioned bedrooms, both with built-in wardrobes, and a contemporary shower room. The second floor is dedicated to a generous-size principal bedroom with Velux glazing admitting a wealth of natural light and a modern en suite bathroom, together with useful eaves storage. The property has very attractive views over Mount Radford Crescent and to the countryside beyond.
The property is approached over a block-paved driveway providing parking, bordered by a low-maintenance gravelled front garden. To the rear, the well-maintained enclosed garden is laid mainly to level lawn with a central contemporary water feature bordered by mature shrubs and trees and offers a raised paved terrace and two gravelled seating areas, all ideal for entertaining and al fresco dining.
The property also benefits from a generous-size two-room basement with W.C. currently accessible from the rear garden, with planning permission to convert into additional accommodation.
30 Wonford Road is situated in an enviable position in leafy St. Leonards on the doorstep of all the fantastic amenities the cathedral city of Exeter has to offer. The Magdalen Road shops are 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 a theatre, museum, arts centre, a wealth of cafés, restaurants and good shopping including John Lewis and Waitrose. The area offers a very good choice of schools.
For outdoor enthusiasts, local leisure activities include walking, cycling, surfing, sailing and horse riding. Sports facilities include St. James Park for football, rugby at Sandy Park, Exeter Racecourse and Exeter Golf and Country Club.
From Western Way (B3212), turn onto Magdalen Road. Take the second turning on the right, onto Wonford Road, and the property is on the left hand side shortly afterwards.Read all
