Full Details

Thorverton is a pretty and popular village located in the Exe Valley. It is ideally situated for Exeter and has a fantastic community with local societies and clubs, shops and pubs. The village has a range of properties to suit most buyers but there is often plenty of competition as it’s a lovely place to live!

Located off a central village road, Fir Tree House was built in about 2000 by a local building firm and has been a fantastic family home for the current owners. The house is of brick construction with a slate roof and has double glazing and gas central heating throughout plus an open fire to the living room. The current owners have further improved the house during their time with the addition of a conservatory at the rear and the creation of a fabulous, light and spacious kitchen/dining room which has given a heart to this already well positioned house. There are integrated appliances and a dual fuel range (available by negotiation). In addition to the kitchen, there is a useful utility room and WC (handy in a family home) and also a separate dining room which could be used as a study to work from home or indeed as a ground floor 4th bedroom. The living room has double doors out into the conservatory which enjoys the outlook over the gardens to the rear. Upstairs are 3 bedrooms and the family bathroom and the main bedroom has an en-suite shower room.

Outside, the front garden sets the property back from the private drive (one more property passes this one) and there’s a driveway for off-road parking. It is worth mentioning that more parking could be created here if required. The remaining garden lies to the side and rear with lawns, planted flower beds and seating areas. It is a lovely garden and a surprising amount of space with all of the various areas. There is a garden shed and room for further storage or a greenhouse if desired.
