Description

A fascinating piece of Topsham's history. 4 Swains Court now offers the opportunity to completely redevelop the existing building to form a sizeable home or to convert into two separate units, subject to Planning consent being obtained.
Occupying the South side of a small square, directly accessed from Fore Street, the house presently provides 3 bedrooms, a large reception room, dining room through to kitchen, bathroom, utility and three further ground floor rooms. There are two enclosed walled courtyard gardens and a share of the ownership of the communal courtyard at Swains Court.

Situation

Topsham has a rich and varied history. It was the second major British port and shipbuilding centre, that in its heyday rivalled London. Now Topsham is a popular place to live for retirees and many younger residents working in Exeter. It is also a favourite destination for tourists who can't resist the old world charm and the views from the quayside across to the Haldon Hills - it is said to be one of the finest sunsets across the south west.

Directions

From the WG office in Topsham, turn left and walk to the alleyway on the left (opposite the pharmacy). On entering Swain's Court, number 4 is located on the far left hand side.
