A ground floor freehold apartment in a Grade II Listed building. Living room, fitted kitchen, double bedroom, stylish shower room. Garden. Parking for 1 car.
The property is set in the grounds and parkland of Trehill House, an impressive 'Greek Revival' house that was rebuilt in 1827 for the Ley family. It lies half a mile out of the popular village of Kenn. The villages of Kenn and nearby Kennford have an active community with a range of clubs and facilities including a cricket ground, pubs, village hall, village shop, church and primary school. It is only a mile off the A38 dual carriageway meaning that it is most accessible to the M5, Exeter and Plymouth.
The unspoilt countryside surrounding Kenn is most attractive with the Exe Estuary at Powderham / Starcross being only 4 miles. Haldon Forest for walking, cycling and riding is within 2 miles.DESCRIPTION
