This wonderful detached property is a period conversion, which we understand was formerly the stables of the Trehill Estate. The conversion has been carried out in a way that is sympathetic to the building, with good quality timberwork providing excellent rustic charm. Most of the windows are on the southerly elevation and enjoy good views across the beautiful sweeping landscaped lawns and grounds, understood to have once been the kitchen gardens for the estate. The family-sized accommodation comprises welcoming reception hall, spacious sitting room with log burner that opens to a large versatile room that could serve as an occasional bedroom or a home office. There is an attractive kitchen/dining room with a useful utility/boot room leading off. Also to the ground floor is the fourth bedroom and modern shower room. To the first floor there are three double bedrooms and the modern family bathroom. In addition to the sweeping grounds, there is a lovely paved area, perfect for al-fresco dining, as well as a garage and a courtyard.


Manor Croft is situated in a pleasant semi-rural location on Old Haldon Hill, which lies around 6-miles from the cathedral city and county town of Exeter. The location is "tucked away" and yet offers immediate accessibility to all major roads and the M5 motorway beyond. The property is set around one mile from the villages of Kenn and Kennford, which have a range of local amenities to include a well-regarded primary school. Manor Croft and its neighbouring properties are nestled in a delightful rural bowl below Haldon Forest. Nearby Haldon Forest Park is an expansive area of forestry commission owned woodland offering excellent walking, horse riding and cycling trails.


From Exeter proceed South onto the A38 towards Plymouth and climb Telegraph Hill. As the road levels out, exit left signposted Exeter Racecourse and Dunchideock and at the mini-roundabout within 100 yards or so turn right signposted Dunchideock. Cross under the A38 and then immediately take the left exit signposted A38 and Exeter and then partially re-join the A38 in a northerly direction but immediately take the slip road left signposted Kennford and Kenn. Continue down this road through the trees for 0.9 of a mile and shortly after a white gate lodge on the right, turn sharp left down a drive where the entrance to Manor Croft will be found.
