This property is the largest part of The Manor House, a Grade II Listed house on Crediton’s town square. The house was divided up into 4 parts, with three houses onto Parliament Street and this one at the rear. This means that not only is 3 The Manor House off the road, it’s quiet, tucked away and has the added benefit of opening up onto the huge 190’ garden at the rear.
The house has been sympathetically updated by the current owners during their time here and retains the character and grandeur that the house has to offer. There is gas central heating and the whole house has the creature comforts one would expect in modern day living – a fitted kitchen (complete with a lovely gas fired AGA), an en-suite to the ground floor double bedroom, doors opening out onto the rear garden and neutral décor throughout. The current owners have a layout with a kitchen/breakfast room (windows on 3 sides so it’s light and is right beside the courtyard garden for breakfast al fresco), a former cellar forms a snug and this leads to a central staircase hall. There is a dining room, double bedroom with en-suite and a WC to complete the ground floor. Upstairs, there is a large light living room overlooking the garden, 3 double bedrooms and a family bathroom.
The outside is special for this town property. A gated entrance (shared with others) leads to a parking area with an open fronted garage. The courtyard beside the kitchen is pretty and fenced (ideal for children and pets) and a pathway leads to the rear of the house. Steps lead up to a two level garden, both large lawns with walls and fencing plus plenty of trees and shrubs. There is a hidden garden shed and a natural break in the middle of the two areas has steps (and a slope) to the even more secluded higher lawn with a useful utility/shaded area at the end. It is rare to find a house so full of period character with the parking and garage, the seclusion and the garden, all just a stone’s throw from the town centre so don’t miss out!

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.
