About this property

  • 9 Silver Terrace is a superbly presented Grade II Listed Georgian townhouse, set at the end of one of the finest terraces in Exeter. The rear garden has direct access to Little Silver and its stunning seasonal wildflower garden. The property sits in a very secluded conservation area in the heart of the city. The house is presented to the highest standard throughout, retaining many of its original period features including sash windows, decorative fireplaces and the original staircase. There is a great blend of character and versatile modern living space throughout. The house enjoys a beautifully kept front and rear garden, along with a balcony terrace that overlooks the garden of Little Silver.

    Measuring approximately 2,100 sq ft and set over four storeys, the house is approached via a private path in front of the terrace from Richmond Road. A delightfully presented and manicured front garden leads to the front door that opens to a welcoming entrance hallway with original floorboards. The hallway leads to the first handsome sitting room that enjoys a front aspect and a feature fireplace. There is downstairs cloak room and WC from the hallway, with a further door that opens to the kitchen, dining room, located to the rear of the house. Southerly facing and with a lovely aspect to the garden, there is plenty of light with French doors opening to the rear terrace and garden. Certainly the hub of the house, the kitchen has been updated in keeping with the character of the property, and also offers plenty of cupboard and pantry storage.

    Upstairs, the first floor incorporates a further elegant drawing room that enjoys a front aspect via two sash windows, original oak flooring and a working fireplace, a real feature to the room. The fourth bedroom or study is located to the rear of the house and features French doors that open onto a delightful decked balcony that is south facing and a wonderful sun-trap.

    The entire second floor features the principal bedroom suite, with a superb king sized bedroom, again with two sash windows to the front aspect, and a very large ensuite that incorporates a freestanding roll top bath, a separate shower, with hard wood flooring throughout. The whole suite makes for a perfect cosy and luxurious hideaway. The final floor has two further immaculate double bedrooms and a recently modernised family shower room.

    Gardens and Grounds
    From the private path at the front of the house, there is a pretty front garden with carefully manicured borders, shrubs and the original iron railings. The extremely pretty courtyard garden to the rear of the house is accessed via French doors from the kitchen diner. Southerly facing, the garden is a real suntrap and is a fantastic extension of the kitchen and ideal for entertaining. Designed to be low maintenance, the garden is mostly paved with a raised border that is home to three shaped olive trees. At the end of the garden there is a very useful summer house that also benefits from power, lighting and water. The real charm to the garden is that it has a side door accessing the secret garden of Little Silver, which throughout most of the Spring is a stunning carpet of wildflowers.
