Full description

Robert Williams Estate Agents are pleased to advise the upcoming listing of the principal apartments at Trehill House, an impressive and architecturally important Grade II* list Georgian mansion just outside the village of Kenn, close to Exeter. The apartments are located in prime positions on the Piano Nobile (elevated ground floor) and come to the market in nearly 25 years; they are quite remarkable in stature and situation.

Built in 1827 for Sir Henry Ley in the Greek Revival style (by C.R.Ayres) the building enjoys a superb location that is both rural and exceptionally convenient for Exeter and further afield, making it the perfect proposition for an owner occupier or someone looking for an impressive second home or investment.

The recently converted / refurbished apartments are as follows :

The West wing (Impressive Portico main entrance entrance With Doric columns)

Grand Maisonette (Splendid Stair Hall)

The East Wing (Library Large Private Garden And Entrance)

The Orangery - a refurbishment project for conversion to 2 bedroom detached house

Two further 1st floor apartments apartments

All the apartments have original feature fireplaces, wooden bespoke shutters, deep cornicing to the ceilings. Many of the principal rooms are decorated with William Morris screen printed wallpaper / Sanderson Traditional and none of the apartments offered formed part of the 'servants' quarters).

The principal apartments have an abundance of character and one of the following :

Library said to have been influenced by Robert Adam who designed parts of Saltram House in Plymouth where Sense and Sensibility was filmed and to which Sir Henry Lay was associated. Original bookcases and French Empire chimney piece bow-fronted window with French doors leading down to the garden.  

Splendid stair hall, top-lit with painted glass panes and decorated with Greek key patterns and cast from the Temple of Apollo at Basra , with an open well canter levered staircase with decorated iron balusters.  

Entrance Drawing Room with three friezes with figures in relief, casts from the Temple of Apollo at Basra A circa 1870s flamboyant chimney piece in a free Jacobean style has been added on the wall opposite the front door. Ornate Trompe-l'œil fresco to the ceiling and walls.

The principal Apartments are approached by the original main gated entrance and will have allocated parking in front of the main entrance and lawns. In addition to some of the apartments having private gardens, they also enjoy access to the communal areas of Trehill House, which include a wonderful 'secret water garden'.

Trehill House  is approximately 6 miles to the South of Exeter city centre.  Kenn is an attractive village with a varied mix of property types and is wonderfully convenient for travel.

PRICE RANGE

There are 3 principal apartments (which could be linked and sold together to form the original 'maisonette') and two additional, 2 bedroom first floor apartments. 

Prices range from £179,950 to £400,000.  Please call Steve Alford for further details.
