DESCRIPTION Situated in the popular village of Kenton, with stunning dual aspect views towards the Exe Estuary and countryside, South Warborough House occupies two parallel rear Wings of a former Victorian villa believed to have been built in 1850 for a local Surgeon. The property retains numerous period features including ornate plaster cornicing, high ceilings with roses, stripped original wooden floors, beautiful staircase balustrading and distinct well maintained sash windows with decorative arches above.
LOCATION Kenton is an extremely popular and attractive village with Post Office/general store, ancient parish church, two restaurants, public house, a junior school and bus stop with regular services: to the Cathedral city of Exeter (approximately 8 miles), the estuary village of Starcross and the seaside resort of Dawlish (about 6 miles). The Exe estuary is nearby, and some of Devonshire’s loveliest countryside is virtually on the doorstep plus the wonderful Powderham Castle and grounds with farm shop and restaurant. There is also easy access to the M5 motorway and all other routes out of the Exeter area.
APPROACH Proceed through Kenton, from Exeter, on the A379. Opposite to the entrance to Powderham Castle turn right into Warborough Hill at the top of the hill turn left and the gated entrance to the property is immediately on your left.
