Situation - The Avenue is a quiet, much sought after area of Tiverton, very convenient for the town centre and all the amenities of the town, but well off the main thoroughfares. The immediate surroundings include the oval shaped green in front of The Avenue, the nearby bowling green and access to the Grand Western Canal, which is a countryside park and provides a very attractive walk.
Tiverton is an old market town with a good range of shopping, schooling and recreational facilities, including hospital and sports centre, 18 hole golf course and sports clubs. The house is within the catchment area for discounted fees at Blundell's Public School.
There is a dual carriageway link to the M5 about a mile from the house and Junction 27 and Tiverton Parkway mainline station are about 8 miles. The latter has a regular service to London (Paddington). Exeter and Bristol Airports, via the M5, have flights to many UK and European cities.
Both Exeter and Taunton are within easy driving distance and have all the facilities and amenities of prosperous county towns and regional centres. Exeter also has a famous cathedral and university.

Description - The house is typical of the fine, elegant but practical houses built during the Victorian era. It has some fine architectural features but above all it is the spacious, well proportioned rooms, well lit by large, mainly double-hung, sash windows with high ceilings that make it such an attractive house to live in. The moulded cornices in the main reception rooms, panelled doors, deep moulded architraves and cornices, wide stripped pine floorboards inside the house, are complemented by the red brick elevations with contrasting brickwork jambs and window surrounds, unusual and attractive tiled gables and steeply pitched slate roof.
