Bedrooms: 6

A superb former farmhouse affording spacious and well presented accommodation with good outbuildings and occupying a delightful private location. Main house into 6 bedrooms and 4 receptions, 1 bedroom cottage, separate studio/playroom, good gardens and paddocks. In all about 4.5 Acres.

"Potters" was purchased about 10 years ago in a poor state of repair by the vendors who have transformed the house and outbuildings to create a wonderful country home of real character and privacy. Listed Grade II in recognition of its importance, the main house is of rendered and local stone elevations under slated roofs and offers spacious living accommodation arranged on two floors with four reception rooms, a lovely farmhouse kitchen and six bedrooms, two of which have en-suite facilities. Many of the original features including fireplaces, timbered ceilings and Elm paneling have been retained and sympathetically integrated - the blend throughout is very tasteful. The house stands elevated above a courtyard setting with outbuildings to either side.

These buildings incorporate an office, excellent storage, garden rooms and car port to the west. To the east is a music room with studio above linked to a timber conservatory. In addition a one bedroom staff cottage is situated so as to provide privacy for the main house. The gardens are mostly informal and form a lovely setting to the house and pony paddocks adjoin. The property extends to about 4.5 acres. Potters undoubtedly is one of the best country houses of its type to have come to the market for some time in the area.

The property occupies a very private and tucked away location close to the Devon/Somerset border and about 1 mile from the small village of Shillingford which is itself about 2 miles from the large town of Bampton in the Axe Valley. The larger centres of Taunton (16 miles) and Tiverton (8 miles) provide a wider range of shopping facilities as well as an excellent selection of independent schools with 5 being within easy driving distance. The property is approached over a long private entrance drive and is surrounded by traditional farmland and occupies an elevated position with delightful southerly views over the surrounding countryside. Although the property would not be regarded as remote, it does enjoy real peace and seclusion. Lying close to the Exmoor National Park, there are numerous opportunities to enjoy country pursuits, particularly fishing on the rivers Axe and Barle, and horse riding, with direct access to bridle ways. The M5 motorway may be joined at junction 26 or 27 being about 10 miles away and Taunton and Tiverton Stations offer a fast rail link to London (Paddington). Both Bristol and Exeter International Airports are within about an hour's drive; and both cities offer excellent national communications as well as big business and retail centres.
