The cathedral city of Exeter lies some 40 miles to the northeast, providing transport connections to London and the rest of the UK via its railway links and the M5 motorway.DESCRIPTION
Of some local historical interest, Grenofen Manor is believed to date back to at least the 17th Century as a private country house, occupying one of the most picturesque locations in the Walkham Valley. Having been sold off and converted in the mid-20th Century, the site subsequently became a country club and is now comprised of ten sizeable and comfortable countryside homes. This 2-storey mews-style house is available to the market for the first time in 25 years and offered with no onward chain. The comfortable 3-bedroom, 2-reception accommodation is complemented externally by ample off-road parking and a single garage.ACCOMMODATION
The accommodation is accessed on the ground floor into a central hallway where there is a cloakroom, utility cupboard and access to both the sitting room and dining room. The dining room, in turn, leads into the kitchen, which is fitted with a generous amount of cupboards and cabinets with black granite work surfaces and a Belfast sink. There is an integral Kenwood double oven, Bosch 4-ring induction hob, plus spaces for a fridge/freezer and slimline dishwasher. Off of the first floor landing are three double bedrooms, including a master with en-suite shower room.

The adjoining family bathroom has a 3-piece suite including a panelled bath with a shower over.OUTSIDE
