Greenacres is amongst a select number of properties, a short distance from the village of Sheldon, situated in the Blackdown Hills, designated an AONB. Sheldon has a church and an active village hall, whilst the nearby larger villages of Kentisbeare and Dunkeswell offer a range of local amenities, including pubs, post office/store, village shop and a doctors surgery. There is schooling locally, including the popular secondary school at Uffculme.

This unspoilt area of East Devon lies about 5 miles from the Somerset border and is readily accessible to the M5 at Cullompton and the A30/A303 at Honiton. Both of these market towns provide excellent everyday amenities and for a wider range of facilities the Cathedral and University City of Exeter is easily accessible. There are regular rail services to London from Tiverton Parkway and Honiton. Exeter International Airport provides a number of domestic and international flights.


Occupying a beautiful secluded location surrounded by the gardens and woodland Greenacres is approached along the shared driveway. Formerly a workshop which the current owners initially converted into a one storey dwelling and subsequently converted to form first floor accommodation creating this spacious family home.

On the ground floor the accommodation is predominantly open plan, including a well laid out kitchen with a range of units and space for appliances opening through to the extensive 26' reception room with large wood burning stove and double doors opening to the patio. Beyond the double aspect snug/fourth bedroom is a store room, which was formerly the bathroom. There are useful service rooms, including a large utility/boot room with range of units and space and plumbing for laundry appliances, along with a shower room.

To the first floor are three double bedrooms and a family bathroom comprising a modern suite, including a shower over the bath. The spacious principle suite includes fitted wardrobes and the recently completed en suite shower room.


A private drive leads to the extensive parking and turning area. The attractive gardens are predominantly laid to lawn with areas of patio and planted borders, along with a range of useful wood sheds and stores. The former pump house is currently used for storage and offers further potential, subject to the necessary consent.

Separate to the gardens is the mixed woodland, extending to 2.35 acres, including many broadleaved trees, stream and disused wildlife ponds formerly used for trout.


Mains water and electricity. Private drainage. Oil fired central heating.
