Polsloe Road is conveniently located between Heavitree and St Leonards, on the eastern side of the cathedral and the University City of Exeter. The property is a short walk from Waitrose, The Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital, the University and the city centre. It benefits from amenities, including excellent private and state schooling, shops and easy access to Exeter bus station. Exeter affords a fantastic range of amenities, sporting and leisure facilities and exceptional shopping and dining opportunities.
The M5 is easily accessible to the east of the city at junction 29, which links to the A30 and A38 trunk roads. Two mainline railway stations on the Paddington and Waterloo lines are nearby, as is an international airport with daily flights to London.

This is a rare opportunity to purchase a charming 6-bedroom period townhouse in this popular residential area, having recently undergone a complete architect-led renovation. This sale includes a beautiful and spacious ground-floor 2-bedroom apartment. Built around the middle of the 19th Century, the property is beautifully presented. It retains many features associated with the early Victorian period of architecture, including high ceilings, spacious rooms and abundant natural light. On the ground floor is a splendid sitting room with an attractive period fireplace and an impressive modern kitchen and dining room overlooking the garden. The first floor has two very large double bedrooms and a stunning shower room, and on the top floor are two further bedrooms with spectacular views across the City and another shower and utility room. To the rear is an extensive attractive garden, adjacent single garage in a block and residents parking.

From the front garden, stairs rise to a solid wood door opening into an entrance hall with an internal opening into the hall with a delightful staircase rising to the first floor. There is a beautiful sitting room with a bay window to the front and a high ceiling, creating a lovely light reception room with recently installed flooring, cast iron radiators and a feature period fireplace.
To the rear is a fantastic modern kitchen/dining room, recently installed with a range of top-end modern fitted appliances, including an induction hob, dishwasher, hi-level oven and fitted microwave. French doors open to a Juliett balcony overlooking the garden, a lovely addition to the room.
On the first floor are two double bedrooms, one overlooking the garden and one to the front, a stunning shower room with black tiled flooring, fitted electric toothbrush points, a vanity unit, and a low-level WC. Stairs rise again to the top floor where there are two further double bedrooms, both with stunning views over the City, Cathedral and the countryside views beyond, to the front and rear. On this floor is another impressive newly installed showroom with a walk-in shower, hand wash basin and W.C. Cleverly designed, a utility area with a washing machine and tumble dryer, meaning washing doesn't have to be carried up and down to the kitchen.

Accessed from a separate staircase from the front is a very well-presented lower ground floor 2-bedroom apartment that has also been renovated to an exceptional standard. There is an open plan kitchen/dining/living space, with modern kitchen units fitted with a range of integral appliances, a feature-painted brick fireplace, and likely the house's original 'servant's quarters'. Both bedrooms are doubles; another well-appointed shower room and a separate door give access to the garden a great addition to the house that could be used for rental purposes or housing a dependent relative. The respective properties also benefit from extensive soundproofing.

All mains services, gas central heating.

From the centre of Exeter, head along Heavitree Road turning left into Gladstone Road. Continue past Waitrose and the hospital and at the end of the road turn right into Posloe Road and the house is immediately on the left hand side.

To the front is an enclosed garden with a lawn and a helpful bin storage area.
To the rear is a very large city garden, fully enclosed by a brick wall with several mature plants and shrubs, an area of grass and gravelled seating space for outside dining. There is an adjacent single garage.
