A FANTASTIC opportunity has arisen to buy a splendid five-bedroom semi-detached Victorian villa with a separate two-bedroom garden apartment in a highly-desirable location in Topsham.
Sympathetically restored and tastefully modernised, Compton provides substantial and flexible accommodation over four floors and has a pretty garden and off-road parking.
The garden apartment which, while integral to the house, could easily be used as additional accommodation to the main house, a granny annexe or office.
Inside the property, one is immediately struck by a feeling of light and space.
The well-proportioned rooms combine an attractive mix of interesting period detail – including high ceilings, fireplaces and original sash windows – and contemporary design features.
A spacious hallway gives access to the reception room, kitchen/diner and a study. The reception room has a sash bay window to the front and a feature fireplace with woodburning stove. Meanwhile, the stylish kitchen offers a good range of oak wall and floor units with quality integrated appliances and a large dining area with access, through French doors, to the veranda.
On the first floor, there are three good-sized bedrooms and a shower room and bathroom, both of which have been modernised. There are two further bedrooms on the second floor as well as access to eaves loft space.
On the lower ground floor, the garden apartment benefits from its own hallway, kitchen/breakfast room and shower room together with two other rooms that could comfortably satisfy a variety of needs either as reception rooms, bedrooms or home office space. The bigger of these two rooms has French doors opening into the rear garden. A utility store provides extra space for a washing machine.
Compton has a small front garden planted with shrubs and flowers. The rear west-facing garden is fully secure and mainly laid to lawn, with a blocked paved area providing a patio and potential off-road parking. Raised beds contain a mix of shrubs and flowers.
This super property is on the market with East of Exe (01392 877240) at an asking price of £740,000. Early viewing is advised.
