Stylish extended period home in the heart of the hamlet


This character home in the heart of the hamlet shows signs of 17th century or maybe earlier origins and has exposed cruck beams, old fireplaces and thick walls, although it is not listed. The house has been lovingly renovated, extended and improved under close architectural supervision which has resulted in a property with a unique contemporary feel whilst respecting the historical features.

The attention to detail has not just been left inside the house with a beautifully landscaped garden ideal for entertaining with built in seating, and an outside fireplace.

Kerswell lies between the market towns of Honiton and Cullompton, on the western edge of the Blackdown Hills, which is designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and has many local walks. The hamlet is set between the popular villages of Broadhembury and Kentisbeare, both with primary schools, village shops and public house, and is located within the renowned Uffculme School catchment area.

There is good access to the A373, which provides fast access to Junction 28 of the M5 at Cullompton.
