A note from the owners: We are in lockdown here in Zenith, since mid March and who knows for how much longer? Just the two of us, and how many times has one or other of us said “we are so lucky to be in this house, in this location”? This is not the usual agent speak, but what really convinces you about a house that you have made the right choice is not only its history, architecture or how pleasing the lines of the building, but what it is like to live in. We are truly lucky to be here. This house works for us in so many ways. First, living much of the day on the second floor lifts us up so we look out over the treetops towards the Cathedral and beyond to the Halden Hills and Dartmoor. This room is full of light. Up on third floor above, if you want to be by yourself is the pleasure that is the third floor. This is my husband’s room and he has here everything that makes him happy, books, computer, music system and even better views. Best of all the bifold doors open on the large terrace, a good place for a drop of fine wine. For me, I do all my crafting down on the ground floor where I have loads of room for my stash of yarns, books, sewing kit and in these confined times, Pilates equipment. There is also a really comfy sofa bed for when our grandchildren are able to come and stay again.It’s yet another light filled room, with underfloor heating and leads out to an inner courtyard which is home to the outdoor oven and pot plants. There is a decked area where sit our outdoor table and chairs. Magdalen Road has supplied all our needs for shopping. Who knew that the fishmonger, farm shop and deli would all keep us fed during these difficult weeks? You’ll be wondering why we want to move. Well I’m almost 80 and my husband is even older and the time is coming when we will be better off not so far away from all our family......


1 Zenith has a gated entrance with an entryphone system and a private, shared secure courtyard to the rear which gives access to the dedicated parking space and integral garage. There is a pretty, low-maintenance walled garden on the ground floor with decking, providing the perfect space for al fresco dining and entertaining. The roof garden, on the third floor, has wonderful panoramic views.
