Little Burleigh enjoys a beautiful location at the top of Killerton Road and was built in 1921, being built for a Mrs Nicholls whose initials can be seen above the date of the house on the front elevation and would have originally been a home for her and her servants, who would have lived on the second floor.
Many character features are still to be enjoyed at the property, which includes bay windows, fire places in the main two reception rooms, high ceilings and a wide light and airy staircase together with some of the servant's bells system which is in place in the hallway, some of which are still in working order.

The sheltered storm porch gives access into the lobby which is spacious with double doors opening into the useful study. In the opposite direction, a door opens into the inner hall. There are two very useful storage cupboards, a separate WC, a door to the rear and the access to the light and airy stairwell. The kitchen is set to the rear with a picture window allowing in lovely morning light and is fitted with a range of wall and base units and opens into the breakfast room which is an ideal informal dining room with the useful laundry room situated off. There is potential to incorporate the breakfast room into the kitchen to make an open plan kitchen dining room if any purchaser wanted to improve this area of the property. The two receptions rooms are of a fantastic size with the formal dining/family room featuring a bay window, fireplace and high ceilings with a lounge being even larger again, nearly 9 metres in length into the lovely bay window at the front, with a further fireplace and doors opening into the UPVC double glazed sun room which enjoys a lovely southerly aspect.
On the first floor there are 4 well proportioned double rooms with the largest room at the moment being used as an arts studio with lovely views, with an internal door into what could be a dressing room or a nursery with a separate WC and or has potential to form a good size en-suite to the main bedroom. There is a further bedroom with an en-suite shower room as well as a family bathroom and separate WC on this level. A door opens from the half landing providing stairs up to what were the servant's quarters on the second floor which now form three rooms, a bathroom and a store room and this has good potential to form a separate flatlet.
The whole accommodation boasts mains gas fired central heating, the majority of windows are UPVC double glazed and there are some fantastic views especially from the second floor over the town to the countryside beyond as well as a sea view over the town from the front bedroom. To the rear, there is a useful boiler room which incorporates a gardeners WC ideal for storage and there is a garage providing off-road parking. The tarmacadum driveway provides a welcoming entrance to Little Burleigh and provides ample off-road parking and turning.
The gardens are superbly presented with sweeping lawns, well stocked flower beds with mature trees and perennials as well as a well stocked kitchen garden. There is a lovely sitting area to the very rear of the property which enjoys the best of the morning sun and there are lots of different sitting areas in the garden which are secluded and enjoy the sun at different parts of the day. The gardens measure just under half an acre and the owners feel there is potential for a building plot in the grounds subject to any planning consents.
Little Burleigh has a variety of potential uses and could be used as a guest house/bed and breakfast, for dual family occupation or could be suitable for a large family with a dependant relative and a viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate all the property has to offer.
