Stunning, extensively renovated, family home in beautiful grounds. EPC Band E

SITUATION & DESCRIPTION

A stunning combination of period farmhouse and modern luxury, set in beautiful landscaped grounds. This exquisitely presented and extended farmhouse has been fully renovated enhancing the historic fabric of the building whilst introducing contemporary features such as the superb glass fronted, oak and steel framed, designer kitchen and the luxurious bathrooms, home office and gym.

The property occupies a picturesque location in a small hamlet setting with wonderful views down the Otter Valley. It is set within the Blackdown Hills, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The villages of Luppitt and Combe Raleigh are close by, with a variety of footpaths and lanes, providing easy access to Dumpdon Hill, an impressive National Trust managed Iron Age Hill Fort and nature reserve.

Although located to enjoy the beauty and tranquillity of the countryside, the property is by no means isolated, lying just a couple of miles from the market town of Honiton with its mainline railway station to London Waterloo. Exeter and Taunton are also within easy reach and offer a wide range of retail, commercial, educational and cultural facilities, supplemented by an international airport and a fast train service to London Paddington.
