Description

Farringdon House is a beautiful Grade II Listed building located on the Eastern edge of Exeter, not far from the airport although it is not affected by the flight path. In its heyday the house formed part an Estate with up to 10,000 acres and today has been divided into apartments with the use of the formal grounds. Apartment Six is located on the first floor and enjoys fine views over the grounds and to the rear as far as the Blackdown hills. The principal feature is a wonderful light and bright sitting room measuring nearly eight metres in length with a wonderful high ceiling. There are two double bedrooms, including one en-suite, a bathroom and a modern kitchen/breakfast room. Outside, the communal grounds extend to approximately six and a half acres, and the apartment has three parking spaces. Access to the first floor is provided by a lift and stairs.

Farringdon is an easily accessible hamlet situated approximately 7 miles east from the Cathedral City of Exeter. Junction 30 of the M5 is approximately 4 miles away and provides easy access to the A38 Devon Expressway and the A30.
