This area of Crediton is popular with buyers for its ease of access to Exeter by road or public transport (bus and train) and ideally positioned for countryside walks with plenty of single track roads and public footpaths nearby. The Victorian terrace is attractive with small walled front yards setting it back from the road and an outlook over the fields opposite is a wonderful vista from the living room and master bedroom. The whole house is neutrally and tastefully decorated with little for a new owner to do.
The house would have changed a little since the original build but still has plenty of character with high ceilings and well-proportioned rooms and a lovely bay window to the front. There is gas fired central heating and double glazing making it more efficient and an open fire is working in the living room. The layout gives an open plan feel in the principal living spaces with the living and dining areas opened up. The kitchen has been recently fitted kitchen and provides access to the garden. A flexible 3rd bedroom or study/playroom is also on the ground floor and gives a useful addition to the house. On the first floor are 2 bedrooms with the master having built in storage and that wonderful rural outlook. The family bathroom has been very well designed with a modern twist on a corner bath and a separate shower cubicle.
The rear garden has a lawn and decked seating area giving wonderful outside space and afternoon/evening sun. Through a small gate, there is rear access onto a path which runs behind the terrace of gardens meaning you don’t need to bring everything through the house. There is then a small leat and an area of land which is not owned by number 7 but has been enjoyed by the owners for a number of years. Many of the terrace do the same but in the interest of transparency, this part is not included in the sale title.

DIRECTIONS : From the High Street, proceed down the town (easterly) pass the parish church on your left and bear right as if going towards Exeter. Immediately before the Shell petrol station, turn right and over the railway line and No.7 will be found on the left. For viewings we advise to turn left immediately after crossing the railway line and then first right into a free car park and walk back to Fordton Terrace.
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.
