4 bedroom period property in the prime location of central topsham. Grade II Listed. Steeped in period features including open fires and beamed ceilings. There is also the additional benefit of a good sized garden and planning to extend the lower ground floor - plans available. Rarely available for long, this property is an excellent example of historic Topsham.
Situation Topsham is an ancient port situated 4 miles south east of the cathedral city of Exeter on the beautiful Exe Estuary. The town is steeped in history and famed for its ship-building past and the Dutch architecture found in the older part of the town and in particular The Strand. With easy commuting and access to the M5, only a 5 minute drive away, Topsham is also well served by rail. The useful branch line operates between the coastal town of Exmouth 7 miles away and Exeter St David’s, connecting it to the national network. Exeter airport is some 5 miles away.
Today, Topsham is considered a special place to live and boasts excellent local amenities including a school, outside swimming pool, bowling green, tennis courts, doctor’s surgery, sailing club, extensive range of independent shops together with numerous pubs, cafes and highly regarded restaurants. It is also popular for its boating, cycling routes, antiques centre and bird watching nature reserve.
Ground floor The approach to the property is off a quiet street situated in the centre of Topsham and leads into an attractive hallway through a partly stained glass door. Hard floors run throughout the ground floor from the lounge, boasting beamed ceilings and an open fire, through to the delightful and bright fitted kitchen/breakfast room at the rear. The study benefits from a period fireplace. A conservatory overlooks the rear gardens with double doors for access. There is also a downstairs utility room and cloakroom with WC.
First Floor With 3 good sized bedrooms residing on this floor there is also a family bathroom to include, bath, WC and hand wash basin, and a separate shower room with WC.
Second floor An extensive master bedroom has been created from this particular loft conversion with the stairs opening into the corner of the room and boasts attractive views over Topsham.
Outside Surprisingly larger than many of the gardens for this type of property in Topsham, this garden is easily maintained being mostly paved and includes various shrubberies, raised flower beds and pot plants. Of note
In December 2018 full planning permission and listed building approval was approved for a single storey extension to the rear of the property. This consent covered the demolition of a lean-to outhouse and conservatory, the removal of part of the kitchen wall and creating french doors to replace existing rear window of the living room. This would create a kitchen/living area approximately 4 metres by 6 metres and utility room with access to the garden through bifold doors and to the hallway and living room.
It should be noted that if this work is not carried out there will be an obligation to replace 3 windows and the conservatory roof to comply with listed building approval of October 2018.
