About this property

  • Dating back to the 16th century, Peamore House is a Grade II listed, impressive Manor House which sits proudly within the outskirts of Exeter. Number 1 has been meticulously restored by the current owners, now, this fantastic home is brimming with period charm fused with a modern and stylish interior.

    Immediately the reception hall sets the tone for things to come and leads into the outstanding Inner Hall where the sweeping staircase leads to the first floor and galleried landing. The inner hall is clearly the heart of the home with ample space for a large dining table, feature open fire place and decorative ceiling. Another noticeable room which has been restored beautifully is the Great Hall enjoying a grand Mullion widow overlooking the private courtyard, delightful fireplace and panelled carvings. Further accommodation on the ground floor includes a bespoke kitchen with French doors out on to the front garden, stunning double aspect Drawing room/Library with an inviting open fire and countryside views, laundry room, WC and Garden Room. The useful back passage provides integral access to the double garage and out onto the drive.

    On the first floor the magnificent galleried landing leads to four double bedrooms ( two en suite ) and a family bathroom. The principal bedroom is of particular interest with a delightful bay window, beautifully framing an Oak tree in the distance. On the second floor there are a further three double bedrooms and a generous landing area which benefits from access out on to the roof.

    Outside, 1 Peamore House is approached by a shared sweeping driveway where there is parking for at least four cars. The established and landscaped front gardens are mostly laid to lawn with a pond, mature shrubs and plants and a terrace directly outside the property – perfect for alfresco dining.
