Intro

This glorious Grade II listed home exhibits the character, style and elegance associated with the original Georgian house, and the more recent Victorian addition, including many shuttered sash windows, fabulous doglegged staircase and unusual cornicing to the principal bedroom. The ground floor provides a grand drawing room, sitting room, dining room and kitchen/family breakfast room. The first and second floor provide five/six bedrooms, two of which enjoy en-suite facilities, in addition to the family bathroom. Two useful outbuildings, being the former coach house and trap house, offer great potential for home working or integration into the living space. For those wishing to enjoy the convenience of close proximity to shops, schools, supermarkets and easy M5 access, this exceptional, tucked away yet convenient location next to the historic Parish Church will surely appeal to families. An early inspection is recommended to appreciate the size and character of this impressive period home.

Situation and Amenities

Tucked away in this peaceful, secluded setting, close to the Parish Church, within a few minutes walk of High Street shops and supermarkets. The former small market town of Cullompton offers primary and secondary schooling, two doctors surgeries, state of the art community centre, modern library and sports centre. The surrounding countryside offers a wealth of rural pursuits with the nearby Blackdown Hills being designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty. The M5 facilitates rapid commuting south to the cathedral city of Exeter and north to the county town of Taunton, with both offering exceptional shopping facilities and an impressive range of independent schooling. The nearby Tiverton Parkway Station provides a rapid link with London (Paddington). The comparatively central Mid Devon location places the stunning National Parks of Dartmoor and Exmoor together with the north and south Devon coastlines all within a modest car journey.

Outside

On the east side of the house, huge twin doors lead from Church Street to the cobbled yard, with the Former Coach House to the left, offering immense scope for a Home/Office being currently used as a ceramics studio/workroom with radiator, but being well suited to annex creation, with its independent access from outside. On the opposite side of the cobbled yard lies the Former Trap House, and which again offers immense potential. The cobbled yard opens out to an extensive gravelled parking and turning area with sweeping lawns beyond, flanked by well tended shrub and perennial borders, interspersed with an assortment of mature trees and shrubs and offering an extraordinary level of privacy. The present owners have created Ornamental Ponds, together with an area of Kitchen Garden beyond trellising and a rustic arch, having vegetable beds, Summer House/Tool Shed and Large Greenhouse. This particularly large walled garden is an undoubted feature and a real surprise.
