Originally built in the late 1920's, High Winnard is so orientated to take full advantage of the expansive views both east and west, down the Teign estuary. The house itself principally faces south thus having excellent natural light and, of course, the most striking features of all are the elegant accommodation, commanding views and the substantially sized plot, approaching some 2 acres. Bishopsteignton lies between Teignmouth and the A380 link road, which is located approximately 3 miles away, this being the main link road between Exeter and Torquay and once on the A380 it is approximately 15 miles to Exeter and the M5. Exeter also benefits from an expanding international airport. Nearby at both Newton Abbot and Teignmouth there are mainline railway stations on the Paddington to Penzance line.
