About this property

  • 11 West Avenue is an impressively presented and substantial detached home with five bedrooms, a beautifully appointed south westerly facing garden, a double length garage with off-street parking, and located on one of Exeter's most sought-after residential streets.

    A magnificent family home, the property measures approximately 3,181 sqft in total and has well-proportioned rooms throughout, with the majority of the rooms enjoying a wonderful outlook over the south west facing garden to the rear. The accommodation, arranged over three floors, offers both versatility and convenience for any family. With features such as the original stairs and doors, and superb original parquet flooring through many of the principal rooms, the house is brimming with character throughout.

    The front door opens to a wide and welcoming entrance hallway with parquet flooring that immediately draws your eye to the different reception rooms the house has to offer. The hallway offers plenty of storage options with a useful cloak and boot room that also houses the boiler, a downstairs WC and further under stair storage. With a wonderful natural flow, the hallway leads to four reception rooms in total, with the linked drawing room and sitting room being the two principal reception rooms offering open and versatile living space, featuring a standalone gas fired burner and French doors opening directly to the garden terrace.

    From the drawing room, double doors open into a large and contemporary kitchen dining room that also extends via French doors onto the rear terrace, and makes for perfect alfresco dining. With a front and rear double aspect and ample space for a large dining table the room has a bright and open feel. The kitchen benefits from an abundance of storage and pantry cupboard options and has a sociable breakfast bar. A door from the kitchen leads to the useful utility room that has access to both the front and rear of the property. To the other side of the house and from the hallway, the third and fourth reception rooms make for an ideal home office space and hobby rooms.

    A superb original staircase leads to a light and airy landing that feeds through to three of the five bedrooms on offer, all delightfully outlooking the rear garden. The principal bedroom being the largest, also benefits from a large walk in wardrobe and a bespoke ensuite wet room with a shower. There are two further generously proportioned double bedrooms located on the first floor, with the second bedroom having a double aspect to the front and rear of the house.

    The family bathroom is also located from the landing on the first floor and offers adequate space for a bath and separate shower if desired. The fourth and fifth bedrooms are located on the second floor, accessed from a unique mezzanine landing that is full of character with exposed timber beams and with parquet flooring. Eaves storage is also on offer to the side of one of the bedrooms.

    The garden to the rear is one of the highlights and features of the property, and exudes a superb sense of peacefulness and tranquillity. A very private garden, it is large enough for any gardener to enjoy, offering a variety of areas with mature trees, shrubs and dry stone wall flower borders. There truly is a fine array of flora and fauna that also includes a pond. Two paths each side of the garden lead to two manicured lawns and a summer house that is nestled away, with the added benefit of power and lighting. Initially from the house, there is a large paved terrace spanning the width of the building and incorporating two seating areas, one perfectly located for alfresco dining, the other cleverly lit for more late evening and night time use. There are two handy garden sheds and useful access at the rear of the garden to an access lane.
