St Breock is a substantial Grade II Listed Georgian townhouse. Dating from the early 19th Century it has a classic Georgian facade. It offers spacious and well proportioned accommodation and it retains many period features, including high ceilings, original fireplaces, original ceiling coving and cornicing, sash windows with shutters.
The current owners have undertaken extensive restoration and refreshment works in recent years and the property is presented in good order throughout. They have also acquired the adjoining cottage, believed to have been the servant's quarters to the main house, and have modernised and upgraded it throughout. They combine to provide a property with spacious and flexible accommodation.
Due to the size and layout it offers a buyer a number of potential uses, other than a family home, including a dependent relative; income from the annexe; ample scope for those who work from home.
Large L-shaped hall, with ceramic tiled floor and two Georgian arches leads to the principal living rooms. The sitting room has an attractive fireplace with carved timber surround, as well as French window with internal shutter. The dining room has a Victorian cast iron fireplace with similar carved wooden surround as well as recessed shelving to either side. The fitted kitchen/breakfast room has a wide range of eye and base level units as well as space and point for a range-style gas cooker with extractor hood over. Of further note on the ground floor is a utility room, library/study, cloakroom and substantial workshop with door to the rear courtyard.
A lovely sweeping staircase leads to the first floor which has 4 double bedrooms, the master of which has an ensuite bathroom and dressing room. The modern family bathroom comprises a diagonally positioned cast iron bath with separate shower cubicle, low level wc and wash basin. There are original fireplaces in three of the bedrooms as well as the bathroom.
The cottage has a large reception hall with oak floor. This was formerly a kitchen and could easily be reinstated, making the cottage self-contained. Also on the ground floor is a living room with a turning staircase to the first floor with large double bedroom and ensuite shower room which has been recently fitted. To the rear of the annexe is a garden room/conservatory with door to the rear garden.
To the front of the property is a small area with wrought iron railing surround. To the left of the property is a long drive affording off road parking for three vehicles. To the right and to the front of the cottage is a garage with power and light supply.
To the rear of the property is a secluded courtyard garden with steps up to a garden set out on a number of different levels. There is a timber decked area enjoying views across the town as well as further paved patio area with ornamental pond leading to a summerhouse with power and light. There is a large lawned garden on three levels and interspersed with a wide variety of plants, shrubs and flowers plus some well established trees being surrounded by mature hedging which affords a good degree of privacy and seclusion.
Plans have been drafted up to build a triple garage to the left hand side of the property, together with off road parking for up to 3 vehicles. This would be subject to obtaining the necessary consents.
From Exeter proceed on the A377 into Crediton. As you drive into the town, just after the 1st pedestrian crossing and opposite the large parish church, turn left into Bowden Hill. Proceed to the top and right into Union Terrace and the property can be found on the left after approximately 200 yards.
