  • Bedrooms: 4
An outstanding 4 bedroom detached Grade II Listed family home set in stunning grounds of about 1.2 acres and being sold with no onward chain.

The Old House is a detached period former farmhouse which we understand is Grade II Listed and has origins that date back many centuries.

This stunning home has been much improved and well maintained by the current owners over a number of years making this a very attractive proposition for anyone looking for somewhere they can just move into.

The property is traditionally built, principally of mellow local flint stone with massively thick walls in places under a slated roof. The property was originally restored about 28 years ago and has the benefit of a modern oil fired central heating system and double glazed windows and external doors.

There is much period character still in evidence with the large inglenook fireplace in the sitting room with its old bread oven and inset with a multi-fuel stove. There is also a plank and muntin screen, beamed ceilings and exposed cruck beams on the first floor. Complementing the older period features are high specification modern features such as high quality modern breakfast kitchen, en-suite shower rooms in both the master bedroom and downstairs bedroom and family bathroom.

The accommodation is well-planned and adaptable in its arrangement which includes on the ground floor an entrance hallway with stairs off to the first floor, lounge, dining room, study, a ground floor bedroom and shower room (ideal for multi-generational living), a large breakfast kitchen, utility room and integral garage.

On the first floor a large landing with skylights flooding the area with light gives access to a family bathroom and three large bedrooms all overlooking the beautiful rear garden. The master suite includes a lobby area with fitted wardrobes with access to the en-suite shower room.

Bedroom 2 includes a large amount of fitted storage space.

The property is situated in a glorious rural setting on the southern edge of the Blackdown Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The property is approached via a private drive, in an elevated position.

The house is 7 miles from the thriving market town of Honiton. Amenities meet most everyday requirements and include churches, schools, library, health centre, banks, Post Office, various shops, supermarkets, garages, inns and restaurants.

The property is approached from the lane via a tarmac drive that sweeps up to a courtyard area in front of the property where there is an integral garage with up-and-over door. As you go up the sweeping drive there is a gravel area for extra parking, a lawn with access to the rear and an array of mature trees and shrubs.
