This is quite literally the last house in the town with stunning southerly views over the River Yeo and some beautifully rolling countryside, all within walking distance of the town and amenities including shops and schools. The current owners have been in residence since 2000 and have greatly improved the house and gardens and it really should be viewed to be appreciated. There’s access to the surrounding footpaths within seconds and is secluded without being isolated. The large study can easily accommodate 2 or 3 people safely giving a perfect work from home opportunity.
The house is very pretty with a traditional thatched roof and slate roofed extension to the eastern end and although it’s an older property, it isn’t listed and is presented in very good condition inside and out. There is a farmhouse style kitchen with oil fired Stanley range (in addition to the oil fired central heating) and large utility and ground floor shower room plus an internal door links to the large garage/workshop with electric roller door. There are 3 reception rooms giving flexibility including a wonderful living room with LPG burner and all rooms have the wonderful views. On the first floor are 4 double bedrooms and a family bathroom and through the master en-suite is a large nursery/dressing room giving additional space.
The property benefits from double glazing, solar PVs and solar thermal and it is on private drainage reducing water bills too. There is a connected alarm system too.
Outside, the property is approached via a lane leading to just two properties (Yeoland House being the last) which is used to access the parking and double carport (with lockable store). The gardens are private and gently sloping to the south giving truly spectacular views over the surrounding countryside. The current owners have created a wonderful garden with year-round colour and are in receipt of many garden awards. There’s a pond, garden room and shed, plus lawns and vegetable patch. In all the garden measures approx. 40m x 20m so it’s a great size with many seating areas.
Agents Notes: There is a footpath which runs down the lane and through the parking area into the adjacent fields, this doesn’t go through the garden but buyers should be aware. The farmer also has a gate access from this lane.
Please see the floorplan for room sizes.

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.
