A substantial attached five bedroom Grade II listed

family home a short walk from Honiton High Street.

Claywell has been a much-loved family home for many years and is believed to date back to the late 18th century. The property has an interesting history which includes it once being Summerland College.

The accommodation is extremely generous and versatile, making it ideal for a large family or multi-generational living. The property includes many features that you would expect of a house of this age, including high ceilings, sash windows and picture rails.

The accommodation includes, on the ground floor, an entrance porch which leads into a large hallway with stairs to the first floor, and three receptions rooms, including a lounge with access to a conservatory, a dining room and a family room.

The dining room and family room have dividing doors which can be opened to create a large entertaining space. Also from the hallway there is access to the kitchen-breakfast room, which has access to the conservatory. From the family room there is access to a utility area, which in turn gives access to a back staircase leading to bedroom 5, a door to a single garage and a downstairs WC (which has planning approval for conversion to a shower room - 15/1236/LBC). There is also a door with step-free access to the front of the property.

This area has huge annexe potential (subject to regulations and planning approval).

On the first floor, a large landing gives access to four double bedrooms. Bedroom 1 is dual aspect and has fitted wardrobes. Bedroom 2 has an ensuite shower room. Bedroom 3 has fitted wardrobes and a sink and bedroom 4 has alternative access into a fifth double bedroom. The family bathroom includes a WC, wash basin, bath with shower over and a separate shower cubicle.

Worthy of note is the size of the loft. This was once a second floor to the college and is extremely generous in size.

The property further benefits from gas central heating with radiators throughout.

The property enjoys a convenient position within a three minute walk of Honiton town centre, which is well served with shops, schools, restaurants, public houses and a sports centre. The property is within a two minute walk of the mainline railway station with direct links to London Waterloo and Exeter.

The historic town of Honiton benefits from excellent road links with the A30 dual carriageway providing easy access to the cathedral city of Exeter and the M5 motorway, as well as the A303/M3 Exeter to London trunk route. An international airport is available at Exeter. The attractive seaside towns of Sidmouth, Seaton and Beer are all within 11 miles.

To the front there is a large driveway with ample parking for seven cars and access to the garage. Steps lead up to the grand entrance porch of the property.

To the front of the driveway is a lawned garden with well stocked borders, apple trees and a plum tree, a potting shed and a further timber shed. There are steps down to a gate that leads on to New Street which is a short walk to Honiton's High Street. A gate to the side of the house leads into a second garden which has access into the conservatory at the side of the property. This garden has an area of patio, a lawn, flower and shrub borders and areas of fruit plants, including strawberries, gooseberries and rhubarb.
