    A Stunning Detached House, Set in Half an Acre, looking over adjoining fields front & back and amazing views over the Estuary!

    Sowden Edge is an individual detached house set in half an acre of wonderful gardens, parking and a private gated lane, this property and its views have to be seen! Originally built by the local land owner for himself in the late 1950’s, it has since been extended a number of times to create a naturally light, beautifully flowing family home, found in one of the best locations in the county.

    The accommodation extends to 2,000sqft and is presented in fantastic order throughout, it includes four double bedrooms with the guest suite found on the ground floor enjoying an en-suite bathroom (twin head shower & screen over the bath, plus spherical sink, heated towel rail & WC) and the view to the front. The master bedroom (also with Juliet balcony) and 2nd bedroom have the best views, over fields and Lympstone village onto the Exe-Estuary beyond. Bedroom 3 has a bay window with views to the west too. The family bathroom is modern, with a p-shaped bath, shower and screen over, plus heated towel rail, sink & WC, with a separate WC also upstairs. There is scope and space for a loft conversion, which would make an amazing suite with even better views!

    The living room has two bay windows and a recently installed corner wood-burning stove, plus replaced oak double doors to the entrance hall and the lovey sunroom, which in turn has double doors to the gardens found either side. The kitchen has granite tops, including the centre island, plus an integrated Rangemaster cooker and a dishwasher, with an opening through to the breakfast room conservatory and an adjoining utility room, with a further sink. The WC completes the ground floor. The whole property is centrally heated via an oil-fired boiler, it is entirely uPVC double glazed with a number of units being replaced in recent years and the hot water cylinder has also been replaced with a large efficient tank.

    Outside: The plot extends to half an acre in total. The house is approached from Longbrook Lane by a long driveway lined with trees and shrubs and having an attractive turning circle at the top in front of the garage and car port.

    The enclosed gardens are a real feature of the property and are attractively laid out with seating areas on either side of the garden room, perfect for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with the sun ‘panning around’ hitting different areas throughout the day.  There is a further garden in front of the breakfast room, taking in the breath-taking views. We understand the sunsets are a particular treat too.

    LYMPSTONE is a very popular village which grew from an ancient settlement on the eastern shores of the Exe Estuary, building its reputation on maritime trade and agriculture. It still retains its links with the past, with local firm Inghams Fisheries selling their catch in the riverside Fish Shed. The village has a well-established local primary school in the middle of the village, with St Peter’s independent school on its outskirts. There is a GP surgery, two churches, four public houses, a cafe, a hairdresser and a store with a Post Office. The award-winning ‘Darts Farm’; a destination store selling local Westcountry food, drink and lifestyle products, is 3.5 miles away, with Michael Caines’ restaurant and boutique hotel ‘Lympstone Manor’ a short distance away, for more special occasions. Lympstone supports a wide variety of clubs and societies, including sailing and tennis clubs, an active gardening club, film society and other societies bringing live music and drama to the village. The Exe Estuary Trail, 26 miles of cycleway along both sides of the Rive Exe, is an enjoyable addition to Lympstone’s many attractions. The M5 at Junction 30 is just 8 miles away and the half-hourly Avocet line train service, with its beautiful views across the River Exe, links the village with Exeter’s two main stations: Exeter St David’s with its fast train service to London Paddington and Exeter Central with its service to Waterloo. There is also a regular bus service to Exeter and Exmouth.
