À propos de St. Leonards Road, Exeter, Devon, EX2

A beautifully presented, elegant Grade II Listed Regency house in the heart of the highly regarded St. Leonards area of Exeter.

5 St. Leonards Road is a magnificent Georgian link detached house which has been meticulously well maintained to create a beautiful and elegant family home. Appealing character Regency style features
are prevalent throughout the house including fireplaces, high ceilings, original ceiling cornicing
and window shutters.

The wide and welcoming reception hall is at the heart of the ground floor, and leads to the drawing room to the right and the sitting room to the left. The large, elegant drawing room has a beautiful fireplace as it’s focal point, and two sets of French doors with shutters leading out onto the front Veranda. The sitting room, on the opposite side of the hallway, has a further attractive fireplace and French doors leading out to the rear gardens, with stone steps down to the patio.

An archway connects the sitting room to the kitchen, with a Range cooker and integrated dishwasher. The pretty conservatory/dining room is to the rear of the house, and entirely in keeping with the elegant feel of the original Regency style, with underfloor heating and electrically operated windows, and is the perfect place to sit an enjoy the views of the garden beyond.

Stairs from the reception hall lead to the lower ground floor, to the family room. The inviting family room has more appealing character period features, with the original Victorian clothes wash in the corner of the room, and an electric wood burner style fire. There is also a shower room, utility room, large wine cellar, boiler room and storage room on this level. A separate back entrance leads up into the gardens, providing the potential for the lower ground floor to be converted into a separate annexe for flexible family living or as a potential income source from letting. There is also a gardener’s WC.

A grand staircase from the entrance hall, with a skylight above providing natural light, leads up to the first floor. The spacious master bedroom is to the right, with two large windows looking out onto the beautiful gardens below. There is a stylish en suite bathroom, with twin hand wash basins, and a power shower over the bath. Across the landing are two further well-proportioned double bedrooms, one with attractive bookshelves in the recesses (currently used as a study). A door from the landing leads through to a corridor where the family bathroom is found, and this is also stylishly fitted with attractive tiles and a power shower over the bath. There is also a dressing room, next to the master bedroom, which could also be used as a study or a sixth bedroom if required. The window looks out onto the beautiful gardens below.

On the second floor there are two further large double bedrooms, both with walk-in storage cupboards, and also further storage accessed via the landing.

The house is set well back from the road, with a private driveway and parking space for multiple vehicles. A good level of privacy is provided by shrubs, planting and mature trees, and an elegant period veranda overlooks the front garden. There is also a garage to the side of the property.

The large walled gardens to the rear of the house are magnificent, and have been thoughtfully designed and landscaped to be in keeping with the Regency style of the house, creating the perfect atmosphere for al fresco dining and entertaining. High walls with lights installed provide an excellent level of privacy. No expense has been spared with
the installation and design of the easy lawn, which looks beautiful and is the perfect low maintenance
surface. Mature, landscaped and bordered beds create pathways that lead towards the rear of the garden. Here, there is a heated swimming pool with a pretty patio and seating area. There is a large studio/games room at the rear of the garden, providing a highly flexible space for a variety of uses. A gate in the rear boundary provides access to the lane behind the property.
