South View was built shortly after the second World War on land originally owned by The General Sir Redvers Buller. Formerly a fruit garden and orchard, the family obtained planning to build an imposing detached house and it has remained within their hands ever since, never appearing on the market for sale…. Until now!
There is fantastic scope to create a wonderful family home here, although work will be required throughout and to really maximise its potential, extending and reconfiguring would be well worthwhile here.
The current accommodation largely faces south and reaches 113sqm / 1,225sqft. It includes a spacious dual-aspect living room and a separate dining room which adjoins the kitchen with pantry. The door to the rear leads into the entrance hall with its original exposed floor, with a WC and cupboard under the stairs. A door from the kitchen accesses the external covered staircase which leads down to the utility room/workshop with a window to the garden and former coal store. Proceeding upstairs we find three bedrooms all taking in far reaching views, and to the far end of the semi-galleried landing, a wet-room with a shower and sink. The house has central heating via an external oil-fired boiler, although there is gas in the road if you wanted to bring this up to the house itself.
Outside: Off Park Street is a single parking space in front of the large garage, which is open to the rear and so offers further parking for at least 4 vehicles. The main south facing walled garden measures some 20m x 19m and is largely lawned. To the side (9.5m long x 5.85m wide) could offer the best place to add a two-storey extension (subject to permissions), although there are multiple options. A footpath leads up from the parking area behind the house, with mature flower beds either side.
The house is being sold with no onward chain.

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, two supermarkets for the weekly shop and a trading estate for any practical needs. All neatly held in a single valley.
