Lower Ashton is an idyllic hamlet within a conservation area located in the sought after Teign Valley a short distance from Higher Ashton, which together form the parish of Ashton.

The Teign Valley is a popular spot to call home not only due to the picturesque surroundings but also being situated between the eastern boundary of Dartmoor National Park and the wooded slopes of Haldon Forest. Here you can enjoy a rural lifestyle, yet the local towns and city of Exeter are within easy reach.

Lower Ashton’s pub, The Manor Inn, is well-regarded and serves locally sourced food and beer, the local church is in Higher Ashton. The nearby village of Christow has a good range of amenities and facilities including the Village Shop, Artichoke Inn, St James’ Church, GP’s Practice, Primary School, and Community hall with sports field, tennis club and skate park.

There are many scenic footpaths in the area and the walks, pubs and Tors of Dartmoor are only a short drive away. There are several golf courses in the area including Teign Valley Golf Club, and the Devon coast and beaches are not far away. The area is also popular with road cyclists and mountain bikers with plenty of quiet roads and cycle routes as well as nearby Haldon Forest Park.

Lower Ashton has the benefit of being rural but is certainly not isolated, The village is well located for commuting to Exeter where you can join the M5 for access to the rest of the country. Exeter also has a mainline railway station linking to London Paddington, as well as an airport flying to national and international destinations.


Surrounded by generous gardens in a plot measuring around a third of an acre, with a lovely southerly outlook down the Teign Valley, Taiseer is in a wonderful location. Accessed via a gated driveway leading to a large parking area, the property has basement garaging and storage, with the accommodation laid out over a single level above. The current owners have made several recent improvements including fitting a new kitchen and bathroom. Accommodation briefly includes two double bedrooms, two bathrooms, an open plan kitchen/dining room, a generous sitting room and a utility room. There is a lovely sun terrace adjacent to the front door, and thanks to large windows the property is light and bright throughout. The extensive garaging, storage and a workshop area has significant potential to convert some or all of this space into additional accommodation subject to the necessary permissions.


Steps lead up from the driveway to a sun terrace formed over part of the garage adjacent to the front door. With plenty of space for garden furniture, this is a wonderful spot to sit on a sunny day and enjoy the lovely outlook over the surrounding countryside. There is also level access via a path and pedestrian gate to the road.

The front door opens to an entrance porch and on to the hallway which in turn gives access to the other rooms, and houses the airing cupboard. Glazed double doors open to the spacious sitting room which is flooded with light thanks to the large windows to two aspects which also allow you enjoy the views over the surrounding countryside. There is a wood-burning stove fitted in the fireplace.

The kitchen/dining room is off the end of the hall with a separate dining area, again with a dual aspect and views over the gardens to the side and rear. The recently fitted kitchen has a comprehensive range of storage units above and below the wooden worktops with inset 1.5 bowl composite sink with drainer and inset gas hob with extractor over. There is an integrated eye level oven/grill integrated undercounter fridge and integrated dishwasher. A door opens to the rear lobby where there is access to a shower room, and a utility room with fitted cupboards, work surface, sink and space for a washing machine. The rear porch opens to the garden and a path around the house.

The main bedroom has southerly outlook enjoying the aforementioned views and a range of fitted wardrobes, dressing table and drawers. Bedroom two is also a double bedroom with fitted wardrobes and dressing table with drawers. The shower room has recently been refitted with a walk-in shower with modern large format tiling plus wash basin and WC.


The entire plot extends to around 1/3rd of an acre with the mature landscaped gardens in the main surrounding three sides of the property, and the large gated tarmac driveway and parking area to the front providing plenty of parking for multiple vehicles, with a wide shrub and flower border to the boundary. The extensive garden includes level areas of lawn as well as terraced areas with pathways, shrub and flower borders and natural stone walling. The boundaries are a mix of natural stone walling and hedging interspersed with small trees. The upper levels of lawn behind the house and many other parts of the garden enjoy the terrific views over the surrounding countryside.

The extensive garaging, storage and a workshop area on the basement level has significant potential to convert some or all of this space into additional accommodation subject to the necessary permissions.
