At the western end of the market town of Crediton is a small residential cul-de-sac called Chapel Downs Drive. It’s tucked away off Alexandra Road and ideally located close to bus stops and within walking distance of primary and secondary schools. Built in the late 1960’s, the house is only on its second owners who’ve lived here for over 40 years. The house has uPVC double glazing and mains gas central heating with the addition of solar thermal hot water heating.
Internally it’s presented in great condition and offers a large living room with dual aspects over the front and rear gardens and has a removeable electric fire. The hallway is central and leads to a dining room and the kitchen which is located at the rear of the house (south) and has outlooks over the garden and to the surrounding countryside over the rooftops. The kitchen opens into a very useful utility area plus there’s a ground floor WC. A rear porch provides cover to walk to the large attached garage without going outside and there’s a door to the garden too. On the first floor are 4 bedrooms and the family shower room (bath removed and larger shower installed).
The front garden sets it back from the cul-de-sac road and a few long shallow steps lead to the front door. There’s access around both sides and the rear garden is a great size, it’s tiered and offers great space on the south side of the house with seating areas, lawn and planted beds.
It’s a great house in a sought after town location. The owners have found an empty onward purchase so are ready to go.

CREDITON : An ancient market town, with a contemporary feel – only a short, 20-minute drive NW from the city of Exeter. Set in the Vale of the River Creedy, amongst gentle, rolling hills and verdant pastures. Sincerely picture postcard. Once the capital of Devon, Crediton is famed for its inspiring sandstone church and for being the birthplace of Saint Boniface in 680 AD. Its high street is a vibrant place, abuzz with trade –artisan coffee shops, roaring pubs, a farmers’ market and bakeries, jam-packed with mouthwatering delights. For those commuting it has hassle free transport links into Exeter and for schooling a prestigious community college (Queen Elizabeth’s) – with an Ofsted “outstanding” sixth form. In addition, it boasts a brilliant gym & leisure centre for New Year’s resolutions, two supermarkets for the weekly shop and a trading estate for any practical needs. All neatly held in a single valley.
