Directions

From Exeter city centre turn off the B3183 at the rear of John Lewis into Longbrook Street, continue along this road which becomes Pennsylvania Road, driving to the very top of the hill, travelling in a northerly direction passing the turning for Rosebarn Lane on your right and then Argyll Road on your left. The private drive to the Higher Duryard is next on your left and Southfield House can be found the second property along on your right.

Situation

Southfield House is situated on the Northern outskirts of the beautiful Cathedral City of Exeter, a mile and a half from the centre and within close reach of the University of Exeter campus, a short walk from two protected valley parks and nearby Stoke Woods. Exeter provides a number of excellent private and state schools at all levels and an expanding college. The city has a vibrant cultural scene with a selection of theatres, cinemas, award winning museum and Cathedral. It also boasts a wide range of sports and leisure facilities, including rugby, football, numerous cycle paths, water sports and leisure centres. The gorgeous East and South Devon coast lines are within easy reach and the surf friendly beaches of North Devon about an hour drive away. St David's railway station is nearby, with trains to London Paddington and London Waterloo.

Description

Southfield House is a very impressive, contemporary design home, sitting in a 0.4 acre plot, with the unusual advantage of being located within a mature park-land setting amongst an enclave of older individual detached houses.
The property has been imaginatively designed and built to an exacting specification to take full advantage of its Southerly aspect and mature setting; it provides versatile, flexible-use accommodation to suit a variety of lifestyles. Great attention to detail has been given to create free flowing living areas alongside more intimate spaces, incorporating a high degree of natural light, interesting architectural features and clever, low energy lighting to offer many options both inside and out.
Worthy of special note is the stylish, custom-built, open-plan kitchen/breakfast room entered via glass bi-fold doors from the spacious reception hall and opening directly onto the kitchen terrace/garden via wall to wall, open-corner, grand-sliding doors. In addition, there is a generously proportioned sitting room, again opening directly onto the afternoon garden/terrace. The accommodation also includes four good-size, double bedrooms, two with en-suite bathrooms together with family/guest bathroom. On the lower ground floor the room layouts offer many possibilities, including the potential for independent living.
The property benefits from highly economical and zoned under-floor heating. A contemporary but cosy feel is enhanced by engineered oak flooring throughout. In addition further efficiencies are generated by the insulating properties of the eco-friendly and bio-diverse sedum roof.
Finished externally using handmade bricks and larch detailing under a sedum roof Southfield House is complimented by attractive natural stone walling, landscaped lawns and gardens; incorporating a wide variety of planting and shrubs enclosed within mature hedging surround.
In all, a quite special property, that will provide a uniquely individual home distinguished by its location, specification and contemporary design and well worthy of closer inspection.
Built by skilled local craftsmen under the owner/architect's supervision offering around 3000 sq ft of versatile, flexible living and entertaining space.
