The ancient village of Kenton, close to the Exe estuary, stands about 7 miles from Exeter and is adjacent to the beautiful grounds of the Earl of Devon’s Powderham Castle. The castle was built between 1390 and 1420 by Sir Philip Courtenay and is still owned by one of his descendants. The Powderham Estate has a busy farm shop, the Toby Buckland nursery, and restaurant.
A delightful place to live, Kenton has a junior school, a fine 14th century Church, two restaurants, two hairdressers and an Inn as well as a busy Post Office/General Store.
One of the many features of Kenton is the proliferation of footpaths and rights of way enabling one to wander adjacent to the deer-park of the Powderham Estate, or perhaps take the longer path (very short distance on road) along to the famous Turf Hotel on the Exe estuary.
The village has a regular bus service to Exeter and to Dawlish.
"Unfortunately I found myself in the position of having to put my late Mother's property on the market at the beginning of this year. It is always a very stressful time for close family, especially if you live in another country, and have never had to do it before! I was very nervous, apprehensive, and really did not know which way to turn. With the advice of my Mother's bank, and many close friends, four local Dawlish estate agents were suggested to me. I saw one, whom I knew was wrong from the word go, and then I met with Chris Parkes from Fraser Wheeler. This was the turning point! I had not only met an agency that I knew were sympathetic with the personal situation, but, were also very forward thinking and pro-active as far as a potential sale was concerned. I was so impressed and confident with our initial discussions and feedback, that I cancelled the following two agents' appointments the very next day. Fraser & Wheeler were absolutely wonderful, and took away a large part of the hassle that is usually involved with a property sale, and their follow up to detail was amazing. Within four days of the property going on the market, they had found a secure buyer for me. I would strongly recommend anyone who is selling a property in the Dawlish, Teignmouth, Starcross area to contact Fraser & Wheeler .... especially if you happen to be living outside the UK (or in another part of the country), and at a distance. They have the ability to make all the property selling wheels run so smoothly for you. A big Thank You to Fraser & Wheeler."
