Outside, the property has highly attractive white rendered elevations and a double-fronted façade, while inside the rooms are light and airy, with large sash windows. The spacious apartment has a well-proportioned south facing sitting room with an open fireplace and a bay window, fitted with three sash windows providing extensive views across the grounds, river and towards Exeter. There is also a kitchen with a range of fitted and integrated appliances, as well as two double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The perfect lock up and leave.

Service charge: Currently £800 per quarter. Includes maintenance of the building, grounds

The property is situated in the village of Cowley, just north of Exeter and on the edge of the beautiful Devon countryside. The village has a local pub, while further amenities can be found in nearby Newton St. Cyres, including a local shop and a popular primary school. Exeter is easily accessible, providing an excellent choice of shops, leisure and cultural facilities. The city is boosted by the presence of the university and the medical school, while there are a number of excellent schools, including Exeter Cathedral School, Exeter School and The Maynard School. Exeter also has an excellent private hospital, two theatres, a John Lewis and a Waitrose. Exeter St. David’s station is just a mile and a half away, providing regular services to London, while the M5 is five and a half miles away.

2 Cowley Place has a single garage on the premises of Cowley Place, as well as an allocated parking space. The communal gardens and grounds are a particular feature of Cowley Place, being available exclusively for the private use of its residents. The grounds are mainly made up of well-maintained parkland and wooded areas, with the River Creedy flowing along the boundary of the perimeter and merging with the Exe, before it continues beyond Cowley Place to Exeter. Lawned gardens run down to the river and a number of paths meander through the land creating some wonderful walks. The grounds extend to approximately 11 acres, including circa 400 yards of fishing rights on both the Exe and the Creedy. In addition to the gardens there is an indoor heated swimming pool, a wine cellar, a games room and a tennis court, all for the use of the residents.
