About this property

  • 4 Clyst View is a superb contemporary family home offering a wealth of spacious open-plan living that measures over 2,700 sq ft. Built in 2021 to an extremely high standard, the house is a near carbon neutral home, enhanced by the current owners who have made a swathe of improvements such as additional Solar PV panels and a Tesla battery storage and car charging station. Set within an exclusive and secluded development of just four homes, the house is brilliantly located on a quiet lane on the cusp of the city, giving superb access into and out of Exeter.

    Arranged over two floors, the quality of the high spec finish of the house is apparent throughout. Impeccably presented, the house is bathed in natural light in every room that provides a great sense of space and privacy. An impressive oak finished entrance hallway, with a vaulted ceiling and featuring a glass banister staircase, opens to the open plan living room and kitchen diner to the rear of the property. To the right of the hallway is a smart and quiet study or office facing to the front of the house, as well as the downstairs cloak room. To the left of the hallway there is a family Snug room, which makes for a perfect TV or cinema room.

    The main living room and kitchen diner at the rear of the property is certainly the hub of the house, and is a fine example of luxury open plan contemporary living. An extremely sociable space perfect for both modern family living and entertaining, the south facing room brilliant opens and extends onto the decked garden terrace, via bi-folding doors spanning the length of the living room. The bespoke stylish kitchen diner is finished to the highest specification, offering an array of solid wood units, a central island breakfast bar with a quartz top, all the expected integrated appliances, with additional features such as an electric tap and wine cooler. Adjacent to the kitchen is the utility room with door leading out to a side passage and the garden.

    Previously a five bedroom house, the property is currently arranged as a four bedroom home, with the principle bedroom arranged as a suite that includes a dressing room with ample wardrobe space, and a generously sized ensuite with a shower and separate bath all finished to superb standard. A sliding door opens onto an extremely private south facing balcony that enjoys fantastic views to the countryside beyond. The bright galleried landing with two useful storage cupboards, leads to three further double bedrooms, one with an additional ensuite, and another with an enclosed winter balcony to the front of the house, that has privacy glass and is also currently used as an inhouse gym. All three bedrooms offer plenty of space and include built-in wardrobes. The family bathroom offers a shower over a bath and is equally finished to the highest standard.

    As previously mentioned, the owners have heavily invested in the energy efficiency of the home. Enhancing the system with additional panels to the solar PV system, a Tesla battery store, under-floor heating throughout and an electric car charging point, the property is near carbon neutral and generates most of its energy in addition to the gas central heating that acts more as a backup system.

    Gardens and Grounds
    The beautiful garden is a real feature to the property, and is meticulously landscaped to continue the contemporary theme of the house. Making the most of its south facing aspect, the garden is very private and has a wonderful lawn that is lined by mature shrubs and borders, with attractive paving and seating areas. The bi-folding doors open and extend the living room to a fabulous decked patio terrace, which makes for a perfect spot for al-fresco dining and enjoying the sunshine. The owners subtlety integrated a further enclosed seating area that makes for perfect late evening entertainment and has the added benefits of power, lighting and heating. An excellent additional feature the owners have also installed is a perfect and separated work from home space. This timber clad home office is insulated, has power and lighting, and could also be used as a gym.

    The front of the house is approached by further lawns and shrubs, with secure gated access to the rear garden. Again the owners have made further changes, wisely adding a second parking area to the righthand said of the property, to provide off-street parking for up to four cars. There is a car charging point for electric vehicles and a double garage that has an electric up and over door, power and lighting.
