An opportunity to acquire an imposing yet elegant detached Edwardian house with substantial 8/9 bedroomed accommodation full of character features, superbly modernised and beautifully appointed - much potential for annexe, bed & Breakfast, small hotel etc - viewing an absolute must!Arden House represents a wonderful opportunity to acquire a totally unique detached Edwardian house situated in the centre of Crediton occupying an elevated position and enjoying excellent views over the town and countryside beyond.The property was built in 1903 by well-known local builders Berry & Vincent to the extremely high specification of William Berry, for his own occupation. In fact, the initials WB can be seen carved into the impressive two tier mantle over the dining hall fireplace. The house has many features of considerable character including original plaster coving and ornate ceiling mouldings, sash windows, fine period fireplaces, and timber wall panelling to name a few. The accommodation is extremely spacious yet elegant, having 8/9 bedrooms extending over three floor levels with much flexibility for a wide variety of possible uses from a large family home, to a hotel or bed and breakfast etc (subject to the necessary permissions).In 2005/06, Arden House was subject to an extensive programme of modernisation and refurbishment, and has been finished to the present owner's very high specification, including much remedial work for which there are guarantees. The accommodation incorporates a mixture of period and contemporary fittings of a high quality which blend well with the many original features. The original sash windows have been retained, with unusual double corner bays in the living room and master bedroom, and there is an elegant wide staircase with shallow treads and original turned and carved balustrade (plus a secondary former servants staircase), detailed cornices, doors and architraves. The dining hall is a particularly attractive room and has natural oak block flooring, and a sizeable arched window taking up the entire northern elevation of the room. The large kitchen is very well appointed having been designed and fitted by the well-known local firm Ashgrove who are renowned for their high quality design and fitting service. During 2010, the majority of the roof was also renewed.The house is constructed mainly of stone elevations with attractive brick quoins and Portland stone window lintels. Central heating is provided by a gas-fired system, and most of the 3rd floor windows have been replaced with uPVC double glazing. Arden House is approached by a sweeping tarmac driveway from Union Road, with grassed verges and an ample turning and parking area to the side of the house. The main area of garden having been professionally landscaped providing lawns, rockery garden and decked patio.The agents highly recommend an internal inspection of this magnificent Edwardian property!
