Bright, spacious, peaceful family home with enclosed gardens to the front and rear. Private parking available for 2 cars. The property is surrounded by Devon countryside with woodland and riverside walks within minutes of the front door. Excellent bird and wildlife spotting. 10 minutes walk to old port town of Topsham, which still retains a strong maritime flavour.
The quaint historic town has a cosmopolitan atmosphere with an eclectic cluster of specialist shops and fine restaurants, plus wonderful sunsets above the estuary.
There are a collection of distinctive buildings in Topsham including elegant 17c Dutch-style merchant houses along The Strand. One of these houses is home to Topsham Museum where you can explore interesting exhibitions including Vivian Leigh memorabilia of ‘Gone with the Wind’ fame, who is linked to Topsham through her first marriage.
Good food is a Topsham speciality with many historic pubs, and award-winning restaurants. Topsham shopping also offers a vibrant mix of boutiques, galleries, gifts, fine wines and foods, and antiques including several floors to browse at the former Customs House on the quay.
Further along, the narrow Goat Walk beside the Exe estuary offers wonderful views and sunsets. These estuary mudflats and Bowling Green Marsh RSPB Reserve are home to a vast array of water-birds including avocet, dunlin, little ringed plover, and little egret.
Topsham's charming passenger ferry deposits passengers (and bikes) across the Exe for pleasant walking and pub lunches at two idyllic waterside pubs, the Turf and Double Locks. You can also take short or long cruises to discover the wildlife of the Exe estuary or to Exmouth's sandy beaches.
Topsham also has a fantastic outdoor swimming pool, tennis courts, 3 outdoor playparks and an indoor play cafe for rainy days. It is also on the Exe trail cycle pathway - ideal for adventures by bike through stunning countryside and coastal routes.
