Exmouth is a popular coastal town surrounded by beautiful Devon countryside and yet commutable (10 miles) by road and rail from the Cathedral city of Exeter, with its intercity railway station, airport and access onto the M5 motorway. Exmouth boasts over two miles of golden sands and is ideal for a range of activities including boating, sailing and kite surfing. The town also has a range of shops, a variety of restaurants, schools, a modern sports centre with swimming pool, an indoor tennis centre and various other amenities.

This well presented detached house, which we understand was built in 1926 by the renowned local builder Francis Williams, is situated on a popular road within the favoured Avenues area of Exmouth. The property enjoys a frontage to Merrion Avenue of approximately 90 ft (27.43m) and is set in attractive  level gardens that extend to approximately 0.45 of an acre. In addition, the property has the benefit of a large timber framed and clad annexe. The property retains many period features including fireplaces, coving, windows and stripped wooden flooring. The attractive covered entrance leads through a spacious entrance vestibule into the reception hall where an imposing wooden staircase rises to the first floor. Doors give access to the lounge, sitting room, study, kitchen with utility room, dining room and ground floor cloakroom. From the bright and spacious first floor landing doors open to the five generous bedrooms, two of which have en-suite facilities and a well appointed family bathroom. To the front of the property is an attractive garden area which offers a good degree of privacy with a wide driveway providing ample parking. The large rear garden benefits from a southerly aspect and is laid predominantly to lawn with mature trees, shrubs, hedging and a Devon bank. There is also the benefit of several brick built stores to the side. The property is being sold with no onward chain and an early inspection is recommended to fully appreciate this beautiful family home.
