A magnificent property fantastically located in a coveted tucked away private driveway off Beech Avenue, one of Exeter's most desired roads in Pennsylvania. Properties in this road are not only a stones throw from Exeter University and within walking distance of the city centre of Exeter yet also occupy a most peaceful setting with outstanding views across Exeter down to the Exe estuary and sea views of Exmouth. Westnorth is a remarkable example of late Victorian Arts and Crafts architecture, built in 1897 and now coming to the market for the first time in nearly 50 years. This rare and beautiful home, of seemingly timeless elegance, presents a wonderful renovation project opportunity. Properties in this enviable and idyllic location rarely come to market and early viewing is advised to avoid disappointment.
