A rare and wonderful opportunity to acquire a property in one of the most enviable positions on the outskirts of Exeter. Tranby Croft sits within Old Rydon lane and provides not only views of but access onto the third hole of the Exeter Golf and Country Club Golf Course. The house is south facing and a number of large windows at the rear of the property allow the views to be enjoyed from an internal position.
The gardens are a particular feature to mention, well stocked and well maintained to the front and rear. The house itself is in need of some modernising and updating, however offers wonderful spacious accommodation with several reception rooms, four bedrooms and double garaging.
