Elmhurst is a substantial detached bungalow, set in a half-acre plot in a quiet & secluded position, adjoining fields with fantastic rural views beyond. It is just a short walk from Newton St Cyres church, bus links to Exeter, Belluno restaurant and the fantastic arboretum – With the modern school, train station & Beer Engine pub not far beyond.
The spacious bungalow already reaches over 110sqm / 1,200sqft of accommodation and offers scope to extend up or out (subject to permissions) to really create a spectacular home on this wonderful plot. We have three double bedrooms, served by a bathroom and separate WC. The large dual-aspect living room (over 20’ x 13’) enjoys the views and has patio doors leading to a paved seating area. The dining room adjoins the kitchen offering potential to move to an open-plan setup if desired. There is also a front porch and a greenhouse style rear porch. There are double glazed windows and mains gas central heating throughout.
The half-acre plot includes very well-kept sweeping lawns to the south and east, bordered by the adjoining fields and interspersed with pretty flower beds as well as some beautiful mature trees. To the rear is a very productive walled-style garden, with vegetable plots as well as a fruit cage and a greenhouse.
Elmhurst is served by a long private driveway which offers parking for 8-10 cars, including two turning bays. This leads up to the two side-by-side garages with recent garage doors, light and power and the modern central heating gas boiler.
Please see the floorplan for room sizes – Floor area excludes the garages.

NEWTON ST CYRES, between Exeter and Crediton is widely regarded as one of Devon's finest villages, with a gentle stream running through the middle under its ancient stone bridge, alongside the wonderful 15th Century church built in honour of the martyr St Cyres, there are few places which match this tranquil setting. The brand new primary school is a fantastic addition & no village is complete without a pub and Newton St Cyres does not disappoint with the atmospheric Beer Engine, a popular watering hole on the Rail Ale Trail, a tour of pubs near stations along the Tarka Line railway between Exeter and Barnstaple. The recently opened Belluno Italian Restaurant is also one to visit and cheese lovers can indulge themselves at Quickes Farm shop, based half a mile west along the A377, the main road to North Devon. These outstanding features are supplemented by that iconic symbol of the English village, the cricket pitch. The crack of leather on willow fills the air when the village team play in the summer months. Footballers don’t miss out either - there are two well-maintained pitches, home to Newton St Cyres FC.
DIRECTIONS: Upon entering Newton St Cyres on the A377 from Exeter, after passing Belluno on your right, take the 2nd left into Church Lane (opposite Station Road), as the lane forks, stay to your right & turn up the driveway marked by a Helmores Board. *When leaving, access back onto the A377 is far easier from West Town Road, so turn right out of the driveway*
