Trehill House is situated on the edge of the picturesque village of Kenn, within Teignbridge District local authority, around a 15 minute drive of Exeter city centre.The village has a tradional pub, church and is surrounded by rolling countryside. The River Exe, Haldon Forrest and Dartmoor are close by. Communications are excellent with the A38 and national motorway link just a few minutes drive away. Exeter has a main line railway station with regular services to London Paddington and there is an international airport at Clyst Honiton, around 20 minutes' drive.

East Wing and 11a Trehill House is a highly individual home created from several of the fine principal rooms of Trehill House, a small country house built in 1827 for Sir Henry Ley in the Greek revival style. It is spread over two floors and is currently arranged as three self-contained, but connectable, units. The accommodation would make a grand single home or could suit an extended family or those looking for a home with an income from letting or Airbnb, subject to the freeholder's and any required consents.

Notable features include the impressive pillared entrance of 11a, the bow-fronted library room, staircase hall with curved cantilevered staircase, several original marble fireplaces, plaster cornices/friezes and the large full-length multi-paned windows. Several of the rooms overlook the neighbouring cricket field and countryside beyond.

The property comes with its own outside garden space and parking as well as use of the Trehill House gardens and grounds which are shared with the building's apartments.

N.B There is a former orangery building with development potential available by separate negotiation
