  • Bedrooms: 5
A striking village residence with Grade II listed stature, enjoying generous living accommodation with a wealth of character features together with garage, workshop, games room/annexe and mature gardens and grounds. No onward chain.

This delightful period property is believed to date back to 1680 and is of rendered stone elevations under a pitch slated roof. The property has been in the same ownership since 1977 and comes to the market following the Vendor's decision to downsize. In brief the accommodation comprises an entrance hall, an impressive dining room with inglenook fireplace containing a log burning stove, a second entrance hall with stairs rising to the first floor and a fabulous living room, again with inglenook fireplace. An L shaped kitchen/breakfast room is also present with a range of fitted base and wall units together with a number of integral appliances including an oil fired Rayburn. A boot room, utility/WC and pantry completes the downstairs accommodation.

Upstairs are five bedrooms, four of which are doubles and two family bathrooms.

Outside are well manicured front and rear gardens, a generous parking area together with garages, workshop and games room with potential for alternative use such as an annexe—subject to the necessary planning consent. To fully appreciate the charm and situation of this fabulous village property a viewing is highly recommended.

The property is located in the heart of this historic village, on the Devon/Somerset border, and enjoys a surprising amount of privacy. The village provides a Post Office/store, pub, garage and primary school and the bustling town of Wellington is within about 5 miles where a good level of amenities include several supermarkets, large sports centre and both primary and secondary schooling, including Wellington independent school providing schooling from age 5 to 18. The village is in the catchment area for Uffculme School. The town of Tiverton and Blundells independent school are equally within easy striking distance. The M5 motorway may be joined at Junction 26 at Wellington or Junction 27 where there is a fast railway to London Paddington available at Tiverton Parkway Station (just over 4 miles away). There are numerous local attractive footpaths including one on the far side of the canal. The property occupies a beautifully tranquil setting of great appeal.

AGENTS NOTE: Any reference to schools or school catchment areas contained within these particulars do not imply that places are available in those schools. Parents are advised to contact the local Council on 01884 255255 or visit their website at to check availability of placements.

The property is approached over a tarmacadam driveway which is shared initially but then leads to ample private parking and turning area which gives access to two garages each with power and lighting. Adjoining is a workshop and general store together with a 1 1/2 storey games room which could be used as a studio, home office or other alternative uses (STP). The potential also exists to convert the outbuilding to a substantial annexe (STP) if required.

The front gardens are predominately lawned with well established floral and herbaceous borders and greenhouse and to the rear is a terraced garden, again lawned with a number of well manicured flower beds, all contained within natural stone walling. The gardens are a real selling point of the property which can only be fully appreciated when viewed.
