Description

Located in the heart of Topsham, minutes’ walk from the shops, restaurants and estuary, Hart House is one of the town's iconic period properties. The house is Grade II Listed and is believed to be Georgian. It contains a wealth of period features, including original fireplaces and exposed wooden beams. It is presented in good decorative order throughout. The accommodation is spacious and versatile, arranged over four floors and exceeding 2500 sq ft in total. On the ground floor is a spacious kitchen/ breakfast room with gas fired Aga and adjoining utility room as well as a separate dining room. The first floor has a fabulous sitting room, with attractive views over the churchyard and a bedroom with ensuite. Stairs rise to the second floor where there is another bedroom ensuite and a large family room. This room has recently been a home office, but it could be used as an occasional bedroom or, with concealed plumbing and access via an external staircase, could be used for an annexe. Access to the external staircase is via a door that leads onto a large terrace with enough room for a table and chairs. The third floor contains two more bedrooms and an ensuite bathroom, each with lovely views of the river and estuary. To the rear, Hart House has the use of a large courtyard garden in common with the owners of neighbouring properties and a private workshop. At the front is an off-road parking space for one car.

Situation

Topsham remains an estuary town of nationwide renown, reflected in its characterful period cottages and houses, which are perfectly blended with a range of more modern homes. Its excellent amenities include a splendid individual-styled parade of shops, churches, restaurants, several pubs and a school, as well as a bowling and sailing club. There is also a frequent bus service and a train link offering quick access to Exmouth and Exeter (where there are main line services to London and Cornwall). Topsham is only 6 miles from Exeter Airport with regular flights to City Airport as well as many other destinations. The town was listed in the 11th Century Domesday Book as 'Topeshant' and flourished as an estuary port for nigh on five centuries. Topsham also became world-renowned for ship-building, reaching its zenith between 1750 and 1870.
