This property at Wyke Cross Cottages is an unlisted semi-detached house found in a lovely rural position, surrounded by fields and lying between the beautiful villages of Shobrooke and Newton Sy Cyres and yet just 15 minute’s drive from Exeter Central.
There is great potential here to extend and improve subject to planning permission. The accommodation currently includes three good useable bedrooms upstairs, all with views. Downstairs we have a cosy living room with fireplace suitable for a wood-burning stove, a kitchen diner and a family bathroom to the rear.
A massive feature of this house, aside of its location, is the fantastic amount of outside space. The plot extends to 0.22 acres of spacious gardens, handy sheds/stores and ample off-road parking for 3-5 cars, including a carport (which needs attention). From the parking area there is a shared footpath with the neighbour, this could easily be fenced and gated to enclose the garden if desired.
The property is also being offered with no onward chain.

SHOBROOKE is a village, parish and former manor – located 1½ miles north east of Crediton. The village backdrop is that of smaller hills, and brief woodland ridges, with oak and ash commonplace – interspersed by a collaged, arable landscape, of frequent colour. The name ‘Shobrooke’ is derived from the old English words ‘succa’and ‘broc’, meaning ‘Hob-goblin Brook’. Nearby lies Shobrooke Park, a spacious country estate, open to the public, with many wizened and ancient trees standing tall. Furthermore it claims a large fishing lake, and a grassy amphitheatre – for live music on summer nights. The Red Lion Inn offers B&B facilities, a beer garden with lush country views, and excellent food and drink. Plus, it provides a welcome rest stop to those travelling between Land’s End and John O’groats. Shobrooke is in the immediate catchment area for the schools in Crediton – also home to the closest shops.
NEWTON ST CYRES, between Exeter and Crediton is widely regarded as one of Devon's finest villages, with a gentle stream running through the middle under its ancient stone bridge, alongside the wonderful 15th Century church built in honour of the martyr St Cyres, there are few places which match this tranquil setting. The brand new primary school is a fantastic addition & no village is complete without a pub and Newton St Cyres does not disappoint with the atmospheric Beer Engine, a popular watering hole on the Rail Ale Trail, a tour of pubs near stations along the Tarka Line railway between Exeter and Barnstaple. The recently opened Belluno Italian Restaurant is also one to visit and cheese lovers can indulge themselves at Quickes Farm shop, based half a mile west along the A377, the main road to North Devon. These outstanding features are supplemented by that iconic symbol of the English village, the cricket pitch. The crack of leather on willow fills the air when the village team play in the summer months. Footballers don’t miss out either - there are two well-maintained pitches, home to Newton St Cyres FC.
