Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Henstill is a substantial, highly desirable and individual detached house, slightly elevated from the road, with views over rooftops to the countryside beyond, within level walking distance of the town and amenities.

The porch provides cover before entering into the hallway. Ground floor rooms disperse off the hallway, which also has two useful storage cupboards. To the left is the living room with open fire, double French doors leading onto the front garden and a large window overlooking the rear garden. This cosy yet light room has a warm and homely feel with visions of the fire lit on those winter evenings! Across the hallway is the double aspect dining room with bay window and open fire.

The kitchen / breakfast room has a range of base and wall units as well as a walk-in larder cupboard. The sink unit is nicely placed in front of the window which looks out over the rear garden. French doors open from the dining area onto the garden. There is also a boiler room, downstairs cloakroom and rear door opening onto the drive.

Carpeted stairs lead up to the first floor landing which has plenty of built-in storage cupboards. The four double bedrooms lead off this well proportioned landing. The master bedroom, with bay window, has plumbing for a wash hand basin and is also the closest bedroom to the family bathroom, with potential to convert into an ensuite. Currently there is a family bathroom and separate cloakroom.

The loft hatch, which is located on the landing, provides huge potential for a loft coversion (subject to the usual consents).

Outside, the front garden is mostly laid to lawn, with patio area and a handful of mature trees. There are very pleasant views over to the countryside beyond. The driveway provides parking for a number of cars and leads to the garage, with electricity connected.

The rear garden has a wood store, further wooden shed and an outbuilding, perfect for converting into an office or perhaps an extension to the house (again subject to the usual consents). The private gardens are not overlooked and have patio areas, mature trees and shrubs with laurel hedging providing your boundary.

Location:
Crediton is an old Mid Devon market town with a wealth of history, being situated just 7.5 miles north-west of the Cathedral City of Exeter, with the M5 motorway some 3 miles further on. There are regular daily bus services to Exeter plus trains every hour to Exeter and Barnstaple and a local town bus which covers most urban areas. The town is surrounded by unspoilt farmland and is most famous for being the birthplace of St Boniface in 680 AD. It has excellent schooling facilities, a sports and leisure centre with indoor pool, supermarkets, banks, restaurants, pubs and a good range of local shops.

Directions:
From the centre of Crediton proceed in a westerly direction to the upper end of the High Street onto Western Road. Continue past Queen Elizabeths Academy School and approximately 400 meters further along Western Road, Henstill will be found on the right hand side.
