Bedrooms: 4
A beautifully presented period village house, Listed Grade II, with a garden studio and delightful gardens.

Once part of the Holcombe Court Estate, The Dower House is certainly one of the most important houses in the village. The property has been greatly improved to a high standard by the present owners, yet retains many of the hallmarks of period detail making it worthy of its Grade II listing. The house provides elegant and beautifully decorated rooms and stands behind spiked railings. The front door is protected by a lead canopy porch and leads into the reception hall with limestone floor, and an attractive staircase to the first floor. The drawing room is charming with two high small-pane sash windows with plantation shutters and looks out onto the garden. The handsome marble fireplace has a woodburning stove and there are archways on either side of the fireplace. The dining room has a similar fireplace with a stone mantlepiece and open flue, an oak floor, window with window seat and a door leading to the kitchen. The inner hall has a small-pane glazed door to the garden, cloaks area with coat hooks and hat shelf and a shower room with Aqualisa shower, wc and wash basin. The sitting room is found at the front of the house with a window looking down through the village, recessed wooden shelving and a wood burning stove. The kitchen is well fitted with a range of oak wall and floor mounted cabinets originally made by David Chappell of West Buckland, near Wellington. There are granite work surfaces and a two oven oil-fired AGA set into a mantlepiece surround. An opening leads into the garden/breakfast room which has a vaulted ceiling, sash windows and a door leading out to the terrace, and an old fashioned walk-in pantry.

From the reception hall, a turning staircase leads to the first floor on its way passing an elegant arched small-paned window with shutters. The principal bedroom has a barrelled ceiling, two windows with shutters enjoying lovely views, and a fireplace with period marble mantlepiece. Arch topped doors lie either side, one opening to a shelved cupboard, the other to the en suite dressing room with ample hanging space and shelves and the bathroom having a pedestal wash basin, rolltop bath, recessed shower, wc and bidet. There is a window with shutters leading to the outside. One guest bedroom is found at the front of the house and an inner landing leads to the family bathroom being well fitted with panelled bath, shower with rain shower head, wc and bidet and wash basin. There is also a built-in airing cupboard. A further guest bedroom with original art nouveau fireplace also looks out to the front and has a barrelled ceiling. The fourth bedroom has a window overlooking the rear garden.
