From Exeter city centre take Topsham Road. Pass the Deaf Education Academy on the right hand side. Turn left into Matford Lane. Turn right into Wonford Road. Take the third right turning into Deepdene Park (Private Road). Follow the road around and Matworthy is at the end.


In a most sought after location in the heart of St.Leonards, accessible to local schools including private schools, Royal Devon and Exeter hospital, a local parade of shops in Magdalen Road, as well as good access to Exeter city centre. There is also good access to walks and cycle paths along the River Exe.


A spacious detached family house standing in what must be one of the largest gardens in St.Leonards extending to almost an acre of mature grounds with a virtually due south aspect, Matworthy represents an exceptional opportunity. The generous accommodation over three floors is designed to take full advantage of this particularly fine aspect. At the end of a private lane in the heart of St Leonards, Matworthy is an imposing detached house, originally built in 1931 and approached by a circular driveway providing plenty of parking.
