SITUATION

Idyllically nestled within 2.38 acres of landscaped gardens, woodland and paddock, Titford Hold is one of a group of three properties peacefully situated just 3/4 of a mile along a country lane from the A373 and the popular village of Awliscombe.

Supported by an active local community, Awliscombe is host to a well regarded primary school, public house and village hall.

The market town of Honiton lies approximately 3 miles to the south east, offering a comprehensive range of amenities in addition to a direct rail service between Exeter and London Waterloo and excellent road links via the A30/303. The M5 at Cullompton (Junction 28) is an straightforward journey of approximately 9 miles to the North.

DESCRIPTION

The property also has a literary connection, being owned by the grandson of William Wordsworth and it was in the Wordsworth family between the 1920's and 80's. There is a local tale that a chest of his family letters and archives were burnt in the grounds so as they could not be sold on at his request. Interestingly, the Rev. Wordsworth used to hold services in one of the vaulted first floor rooms which is known locally as the chapel room.

Titford Hold has been lovingly restored whilst maintaining many character features, creating a stunning and unique family home. The main entrance hall creates a grand space, packed with character and made ever more elegant by the roof lantern flooding the space with natural light.

To the right of the Hall is a WC, Boiler Room and Study with a staircase to the first floor. A door leads through into the open planned country style Kitchen/ Breakfast Room with wooden units, a large Belfast Sink, cream Aga and is lined with country style windows as well as Velux windows, creating a light and spacious heart of the home. The Kitchen/ Breakfast Room leads through into a snug Family Room with Log Burner. A door leads into the larger Drawing Room with a large stone fireplace, two large windows and a door out into the garden.

Across the main hall, is a large Sitting Room with original stone fireplace, Gothic style arched windows and Oak beams providing the ideal space for relaxing on cold winter evenings in front of the fire. Patio doors open out onto a patio area, ideal for entertaining in the warmer months. From here, stairs lead up to the first floor.

On the first floor, Bedroom 1 benefits from several built in storage cupboards and its own en suite bathroom. The remaining three bedrooms (one with en suite shower room) are all of a generous size. There is also a Family Bathroom with separate WC. On the second floor is another large bedroom with en suite, consisting of a roll top bath, separate shower cubicle, WC and sink basin. The bedroom also has its own Balcony.

OUTSIDE

Approached via a sweeping drive lined with mature trees and shrubs, Titford Hold offers a wide variety of outside space. Surrounding the house are attractive landscaped gardens leading down to the River Wolfe. Across the river is a beautiful woodland creating a private space and the feeling of seclusion. The property also has a garage and car port with an additional space above that would make an ideal holiday let, subject to the necessary consents. There is also a near level paddock.

SERVICES

Mains electricity, mains water and private drainage. Oil central heating.
