Located in a Conservation Area just north of the town, Fishwicke House is just a short walk from the beach, town centre, library, Waitrose and the main line railway station. High ceilings, large windows and original features add to the overall appeal and make this a light and welcoming home.
The property also benefits from a modern, efficient heating system and double glazing throughout.
To the rear of the property there is a triple garage with recently constructed pitched roof which has been engineered to provide an easy conversion into a studio/workspace. To the front of the house is a large terrace, edged with balustrades and urns, with delightful sea views, perfect for al fresco dining and entertaining. From the terrace steps lead down to the main garden area with palm trees, mature shrubs and a Canadian maple. The grounds are enclosed by stone walls and wrought iron railings to the front.
Teignmouth is situated on the north bank of the estuary mouth of the River Teign, about 16 miles south of Exeter. The town grew from a fishing port associated with the Newfoundland cod industry to a fashionable resort of some note in Georgian times, with further expansion after the opening of the South Devon Railway in 1846. Today, its port still operates and the town remains a popular seaside holiday location.
Teignmouth has a good range of recreational and shopping facilities and a number of schools, including Trinity School and Teignmouth Community School.
The delightful village of Shaldon, over which the property enjoys a southerly view, lies directly across the estuary and has a thriving community. Shaldon Primary School is highly regarded and the village offers a range of shops together with a number of award winning restaurants and excellent coffee shops.
The cathedral city and county town of Exeter is approximately 16 miles away and offers a comprehensive range of cultural, educational, recreational and shopping facilities. The recently rebuilt Princesshay area in the centre of Exeter provides a wide range of excellent shops, cafés, restaurants and other facilities. Exeter also provides the closest motorway link, the M5 and has it's own International Airport.
Fishwicke House is approached from Landscore Road through tall ornate gates which lead onto the cobbled driveway providing parking for several cars and access to the garage.
