    About this property

    • Built approximately in 1835, 3 Park Place represents an appealing semi-detached townhouse located within the serenity of St. Leonards. Nestled within a conservation area, this property enjoys a tranquil setting while also benefiting from convenient access to nearby amenities on Magdalen Road. Spanning across three floors, the accommodation offers a generous space of approximately 1,781 sq ft. The house features enclosed gardens both at the front and rear, with residents on-street parking on Park Place and the surrounding St. Leonards roads.

      From the road, the front garden is accessed via a wrought iron gate, with paved path leading to the front door. The entrance porch leads to a welcoming inner hallway and reception hall that enjoys plenty of light from a skylight, and the staircase rising to the first and second floors.

      In superb decorative order and with mostly double-glazed windows, the front south east facing sitting room has two pairs of French doors opening to the front garden and benefits from a homely gas wood burning stove. Additionally from the reception hallway, the dining room / study opens onto the rear garden through further French doors. Both reception rooms are wonderfully bright and offer very pleasant living spaces.

      To the rear of the house, the modern contemporary kitchen has a slate tiled floor that extends to a dining area that is bathed in light and certainly acts as the heartbeat of the house, along with French doors opening onto the rear garden.

      There are two double bedrooms on the first floor, with a landing at the rear, a utility cupboard, a family bathroom that includes a standalone roll top bath, with a further separate shower room. The second floor provides two further bedrooms, with the bedroom at the back of the house lending itself as a suitable option as either a guest bedroom or the principle bedroom, with an en-suite shower room and offering far-reaching views to Exeter Cathedral.

      Courtyard Gardens
      Both gardens to the front and rear of the building are enclosed and have been planted with a variety of mature flowering shrubs, with the rear garden patio area sunbathed in the early afternoon sunshine into the evening.
