About this property

  • Set within a private road in an historic crescent of twelve villas built in 1816, 1 Baring Crescent is a beautiful Regency Georgian Villa which has been restored and refurbished to a very high standard whilst preserving all the period features. There are marble fireplaces, original cornices, and sweeping curved staircases, and beautifully proportioned windows and high ceilings. The grand portico entrance leads in to the first floor entrance hall with the sweeping staircase and doors to the study, library and two beautiful south facing lounges. On the ground floor the open plan kitchen/living/dining room 35'8” x 19'2” (10.87m x 5.84m) provides a sizeable, sociable room with direct access out onto the garden via three double doors. The kitchen enjoys a good range of wall, base and drawer units in a white gloss finish with a solid wood oak worktop over. Inset ceramic sink, stainless steel 6 burner gas hob and oven and integrated dishwasher. The open dining/living space is of great proportion and is perfect for every day family life and entertaining. Also on the ground floor is a snug, office, cloakroom and utility room. The second floor comprises five generous bedrooms, the master enjoying an ensuite shower room, far reaching views to the front aspect as far as the Haldon Hills and floor to ceiling height built in wardrobes. There is also a family bathroom and shower room with double walk in shower.

    GARDENS AND GROUNDS The garden has been attractively landscaped and wraps around to one side of the property and benefits from a good degree of privacy and seclusion with an area of lawn, well stocked raised flower beds and a sun-terrace directly outside the ground floor accommodation provides a great space for alfresco dining. There are electric obscured glazed front gates opening to the driveway with parking for two cars and additional parking on the roadway. The property also enjoys shared usage of Baring Crescent's private park which is a huge additional facility for the owner and unique in Exeter. The gardens have borders of shrubs and specimen trees with a huge central lawn and hidden pathways.
