Property description

66 Wonford Road was built in the late 1700s in the typical Georgian style and is Grade II listed. With spacious accommodation arranged over four floors this elegant semi-detached town house retains the style of its period, with high ceilings and large sash windows with wide sills. The traditional inner porch leads into the entrance hall at the heart of the house with an attractive central original Georgian staircase linking the four floors. The dual aspect drawing room is on the lower ground floor, lit by deepsilled windows with a south facing glazed door providing further light and access to the gardens. The room also has a cast iron log stove. The kitchen is fitted with a large Aga, with a central granite topped island and ample space for informal dining; with a separate scullery with a traditional butler's sink.

The principal reception rooms are either side of the entrance hall on the ground floor with a large dual aspect dining room providing a perfect setting for formal dining and entertaining, plus the added facility of a connecting utility room with fitted units. The dual aspect sitting room takes excellent advantage of the house's corner location with French windows to two sides bringing light into the room throughout the day and opening out onto a raised veranda overlooking the gardens. On the first and second floors, the accommodation has six bedrooms of varying sizes, including the generous master bedroom with built-in storage, and two bathrooms, providing flexibility for a range of family and guest needs.

The current owners have greatly improved the property during their ownership including rewiring throughout, repairing the roof, replacing the fascia boards, stripping and repairing the windows and fitting new sash cords. They have also fitted the kitchen and bathrooms. The most significant renovation has been the complete removal of the external render of the house and its replacement with lime mortar.

66 Wonford Road is situated in an enviable position in leafy St Leonards on the doorstep of all the fantastic amenities the city has to offer. The Magdalen Road shops known as "The Village" are just around the corner and include an award winning fishmonger and butcher, greengrocer, wine shop and bakery as well a café, a pub and a delicatessen. Good primary and secondary schools are in St Leonards including St Leonards Primary, Exeter School and The Maynard, whilst Exeter University and the Peninsula Medical School are recognised as some of the best in the country.
Exeter is the most thriving city in the South West and offers a wide choice of cultural activities with the theatre, the museum, arts centre and a wealth of good restaurants and shopping including John Lewis. There is also a Waitrose supermarket in the city.

The M5 motorway at Exeter provides links to the A38 to Plymouth, or the A30 to Cornwall to the South, and Bristol and London to the North and East. There are regular rail services to London Paddington from Exeter in just over 2 hours. Exeter International Airport provides an ever increasing number of domestic and international flights including daily flights to London City.

Taking advantage of its south facing corner plot, the garden extends to the front and side of the house. A structured formal garden provides an excellent presentation of the stone steps rising to the front door, leading to the side onto an open lawn with borders. A separate gateway provides access to the detached garage, ample off road parking, a covered store and rear courtyard.
