Built in the early 1970’s, this area of Crediton town has become very popular. It is a network of residential roads and cul-de-sacs and being elevated, many properties here command super views to the South over the town and onto the surrounding countryside. In fact, it’s possible to see the “Sidmouth Gap” on a clear day from this particular property. A footpath connects you to the town via People’s Park, without the need to go around the road system if on foot.
This particular house hasn’t been on the open market since it was built approx. 50 years ago and as it occupies a large corner plot, the house is prime for further development. Building above the garage seems like a simple option to create more bedrooms but there is so much more that could be done here. An extension to create a larger kitchen/family room at the rear would still leave plenty of garden and combine this with going up too. It would make a modern family home in a superb position. Of course, someone may want to enjoy what is already there and the house benefits from uPVC double glazing, gas central heating and cavity wall/loft insulation.
The layout is of the age with an entrance porch leading to the hall. Doors link to the living room and kitchen/diner and there are doors through to a later added conservatory. Off the kitchen is a useful rear hall with door to outside and into the large double garage. There is a utility room and WC too. On the first floor are 3 bedrooms and a shower room plus a separate WC.
Outside, the “Main” driveway offers off-road parking leading to the double garage. Access to the garden can be gained to the side and the gardens are mainly laid to lawn with some very productive apple trees! There is a second drive which comes in from Higher Road and this offers terrific additional parking or access and would be ideal for those in need of camper van/caravan/boat storage without taking up too much drive space at the front.

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.
