Penlee is a beautifully presented detached residence located on the outskirts of Dulverton and within the Exmoor National Park which has been renovated to an uncompromising standard. Enjoying an enviable position with extensive river frontage and fishing rights, the garden and woodland grounds extend to c.1 acre with parking, garage and car port. The property itself offers 4/5 bedrooms, luxury fitted Kitchen and stunning bath and shower rooms.


A solid Oak front door leads into the spacious entrance hall with oak flooring and doors connecting the daytime living accommodation along with Bedroom 2.

Drawing Room 16' x 11'11" (4.88m x 3.63m). Offers two feature circular bay windows to the east side, giving lovely views over the gardens and neighbouring River Barle. There is an attractive Minster stone fireplace which is open and useable.

Kitchen/Dining Room 12'2" x 10' (3.7m x 3.05m). Which has been opened up to create a social dining suite although the original door from the entrance hall to the kitchen has been retained, giving the option to separate the two rooms if so desired. The Kitchen has been beautifully refitted with quality framed floor and wall units. Space for an electric Aga. An inset Belfast sink with solid oak drainers to both sides and concealed lighting beneath the wall cupboards make this a very pleasant room. The rear door then leads onto the elevated decking which is enclosed by pillars and stainless cable railing. Here you can enjoy views across the garden and river towards Pixton House, a fantastic place to retreat to after an evening meal.

Sitting Room/Snug 11' x 9'5" (3.35m x 2.87m). Designed to give an option for a television room away from the drawing room. This again has oak flooring and an original period fireplace as a feature. The room would make an ideal 5th bedroom if required with the current owners having a sofa bed there for this purpose.

Bedroom 2 12'11" x 9' (3.94m x 2.74m). Is situated on the south side of the ground floor with a further period feature fireplace and double glazed window overlooking the front aspect.

Shower Room    A superb room which completes the ground floor accommodation with double shower, low level wc and pedestal wash basin, all in a Victorian style, with natural Travertine stone tiling.

A staircase    from the entrance hall leads down to the lower garden floor where a spacious hallway can be found which may suit a study or small library area. Doors from here lead to;

Bedroom 1 15'3" x 10'10" (4.65m x 3.3m). Which offers a lovely triple aspect with stable door returning to the rear of the property.

Bedroom 3 11'8" x 8'10" (3.56m x 2.7m). With a window to the rear and recessed shelving with hidden uplighters on the shelf over.

Bedroom 4 10'9" x 7'6" (3.28m x 2.29m). Is the smallest of the bedrooms but is still a generous size single room with window to the side and small built in wardrobe.

Bathroom    Visually stunning, with double ended free standing bath, circular porcelain wash basin set within an Oak vanity unit, low level WC and built in airing cupboard with radiator. The floor is tiled with Travertine stone and benefits from under floor heating and matching wall tiling.

Utility 12'5" x 8' (3.78m x 2.44m). Situated to the south side of this floor and offering worktop space with inset sink. The free standing oil fired boiler is situated in one corner with further space for washing machine, freezers and other appliances.

Outside    Penlee is approached through double wooden 5 bar gates leading onto a graveled parking and turning area. A car port is situated to one side which in turn leads down to the detached garage. The main garden is to the east of the house with a large area of lawn bordered by mature hedging and shrubs. A pond is located half way down and pathway to the other side which leads to the woodland.   Here you will find a small area of lawn interspersed with a variety of fruit trees and a woodland path which treks through the woods. A wooden shed has been erected as a hide for wildlife viewing and at the far end, the path drops down towards the river edge. We believe that the whole extends to c.1 acre.

From our office, proceed out of the town in a
southerly direction passing over the river. Continue out along this road whilst entering into Battleton. As you are about to leave Battleton, Penlee is the last house on the left hand side.
