From Exeter City centre proceed on the A377 turning right into Lower Argyll Road opposite the Texaco garage. Continue to the top of the road where the road becomes unmade. Turn into the first drive on the right with the large stone pillars and continue, bearing to the left onto the newly paved drive. "Hideaway" can be found at the top of the drive on the right hand side. (This road is a private road with a maintenance contract for the upkeep shared by three houses).


Hideaway, as the name suggests is hidden away on Lower Argyll Road up a private drive. It is set within a quiet wooded area backing onto fields. Just 2 miles from the centre of the Cathedral City of Exeter and within walking distance of Exeter St David's station. Exeter has an outstanding choice of private and secondary schools, an extended shopping centre and is also close to the Northcott Theatre. There are good local public transport facilities and intercity rail services operate from Exeter St David's to London (fast trains to Paddington about 2 hours). Exeter Airport is about 6 miles away providing regular air services to the UK and international destinations.


This substantial detached family home is located extremely close to the University of Exeter, St David’s train station and 2 miles from Exeter City Centre yet tucked away in a leafy setting backing onto fields and set within a quiet woodland. Hideaway has magnificent accommodation throughout three stories starting with a spacious hall – perfect for welcoming guests. There are four reception rooms which include a study and library, the double aspect sitting room is of particular interest and is 28ft long with a feature fireplace. On the first floor the landing is full of light due to a marvellous floor to ceiling stained glass window . There are four bedrooms (2 ensuites) and a family bathroom on this level. The master bedroom with walk in wardrobe and ensuite has a double French doors which overlooks the rear garden. On the second floor there are two further bedrooms and a shower rom. Outside the garden offers a good degree of privacy and is mainly laid to lawn with a selection of mature shrubs and trees.
