A secret and secluded home located in one of Exeter’s most luxurious areas
A spacious Edwardian villa conveniently located on the edge of the Exeter University campus within walking distance of the city centre and St David’s and Central stations, St Cross House is the oldest property on Streatham Rise dating back to the early 1900s.
On entry the property boasts a spacious entrance hall which gives access to a study, formal dining room, drawing room with feature fireplace and the kitchen/breakfast room which benefits from integrated appliances and wall and floor mounted units. The kitchen wraps round into a light and airy hard-wood conservatory with French doors leading to the south facing lawn.
The conservatory also has double doors leading to the drawing room. This design has created fantastic fluidity between these three rooms. A utility room, cloakroom and large pantry can also be found on the ground floor.
The first floor offers five large bedrooms, four of which have a wonderful outlook across the south facing gardens to the front of the house. The master bedroom has an ensuite shower room and there is also a family bathroom. Two further double bedrooms with a shower room can be found on the top floor.
The south facing gardens are mainly laid to lawn and are fully enclosed, creating complete privacy. The grounds also house seating areas and a sun terrace. There is gravel driveway parking which leads to the exceptionally large double garage.
Streatham Rise, a sought-after private no-through road, neighbours one of Exeter’s Valley Parks and the University of Exeter’s Streatham Estate with its arboretum. This ‘Hoopern Valley Walk’ is a Green Circle Walk, one of the city’s best kept secrets.
