A Superb Individual Modern Detached House In A Lovely Avenues Location With Impressive Sea Views


Property Features



Cranleigh is a modern detached house, of cavity brick construction, with brick and rendered elevations, upvc windows, under a pitched slate roof. The property offers extensive and versatile accommodation arranged over four floors. At ground floor, there is an impressive entrance foyer, reception hall, ground floor bedroom with en-suite shower, conservatory, utility and laundry, which has the potential for a self-contained annexe. There is an excellent arrangement of reception space at first floor, with a superb sitting room, formal dining room, kitchen with bespoke units, and a lovely first floor conservatory, from which there are some lovely sea views in a southerly direction. The second floor has been thoughtfully designed with three bedrooms, all of which have en-suites. There is a third floor loft conversion (bedroom 5), with en-suite WC and superb sea views. Outside, the gardens are a lovely feature of Cranleigh, with a large driveway lying to the front of the building, which provides extensive parking and access to the integral double garage.


Cranleigh is situated in a prime position in Exmouth, in the popular Avenues, within 5 minutes walking distance of Exmouth’s Maer, sea front and the town centre where there is a good selection of cafes, bars and restaurants, together with supermarkets, independent shops and a train station providing rail links to Exeter. Exmouth lies at the mouth of the Exe estuary, with two miles of sandy beach extending east, which is considered the western extreme of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site. Exeter is the county capital and offers a comprehensive choice of cultural, recreational and shopping opportunities, together with state and independent education, rail links to Paddington and Waterloo, access to the A30/A303 dual carriageways and an international airport to the east of the city which operates a commuter flight to London City Airport.


From Exeter and the M5 at Sandygate, follow signposting to Exmouth and Sidmouth along a short section of dual carriageway to Clyst St Mary roundabout and take the third exit signposted Exmouth and Budleigh Salterton on the A376 dual carriageway. Proceed for about three miles until reaching the roundabout at Clyst St George and take the second exit, continuing towards Exmouth on the A376 through the villages of Ebford, Exton and Lympstone and on reaching Exmouth, proceed down the hill, passing two petrol filling stations on the right, followed by the train station and turn left at the roundabout followed by right turning immediately at the next roundabout into Rolle Street. Proceed through the town centre passing Strand Gardens on the right and continue until reaching the roundabout at Salterton Road, proceeding straight across (2nd exit) into Rolle Road, following the road around a ninety degree left hand bend into Douglas Avenue, where Cranleigh can be found on the left hand side, a short distance before the left hand turning for Cyprus Road.
