George Hill, Crediton

Under Offer — £775,000 — Freehold

Detached House for Sale in Crediton Town with 5 Bedrooms, 3 Reception Rooms and 3 Bathrooms.

Fircroft is an impressive and substantial detached Edwardian ‘Gentleman’s Residence’, located in an elevated position with fine views across the town and surrounding countryside.

The property, which was built in 1914 for Mr Percy John Cleave, a local and prominent businessman in the town, sits in a large plot of 0.37 acre and has undergone a programme of substantial and sympathetic restoration and modernisation by the current owners. It is a spacious and versatile family home with modern comforts, whilst retaining many period features.

Internally, the property has a large and welcoming entrance hall where you’ll walk over the original black and white tiles. Three doors lead from the front hallway: To the right is a well proportioned sitting room, with a south facing bay window, a further side window , and a door leading out to the front patio area. An open fire with a fine Minster stone surround creates a focal point to the room. To the left is a second reception room, currently being used as a study - this overlooks the driveway through a bay window and a has a tiled fireplace. The kitchen/dining/family room is straight ahead, and is a large, welcoming and sociable space. The kitchen area is contemporary, with a peninsula and separate island, versatile lighting, low-level units with plenty of storage and extensive work top space. There is a 4-oven Aga, integrated dishwasher and fridge drawers incorporated into the island unit and a bank of fitted eye level appliances including ovens and a coffee machine. French windows lead out to the patio area on the eastern side of the house. The room opens into the dining area with original wooden floorboards, a wood burning stove and layered lighting. The room can seat many guests when needed, but it can also be an intimate space for dinner and the bay window seat is a lovely spot to sit with a cup of coffee.
From the kitchen area a door leads through to the rear entrance lobby, which gives access to a utility room and cloakroom. These rooms are yet to be finished, but give an opportunity for a new occupier to create their own mark, and together with the study, could create a small internal annexe of kitchen, shower room and bedroom for a dependent relative.

Upstairs, the landing is very open and skylights across the three rooms on the lower section allow lots of natural light to flood in. Off the lower landing is the family bathroom with dual aspect, fitted with a central bath, a shower cubicle, basin with vanity mirror and LED lighting, and a low-level WC. Also on the lower landing is a double bedroom, again with dual aspect. Three stairs lead up to four further double bedrooms, with the two principle bedrooms both facing south, with large bay windows and high quality en-suite shower rooms.

As you enter the driveway from George Hill there is ample parking and turning space. Outside, the gardens wrap around the property with mature shrubs and trees screening the garden from visitors, giving a high level of privacy. Pretty walkways and footpaths lead you off in various directions around the exterior of the property, with something new to look at around every corner. The level lawn provides the space that families require, and the various patios provide a choice of areas for entertaining and relaxing.
