Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

Ford House is an attractive attached, Grade II Listed, Victorian property, believed to have been built around 1840, and retaining some original features and with very well-proportioned accommodation. The property is constructed of cob, enhanced by wisteria and jasmine, rendered with a slate hipped roof with brick stacks to the rear and some slate elevations to the rear.

The property has the benefit of some useful outbuildings, including a stable block, and an area of secluded walled garden to the rear.

Ford House is situated on the corner of Town Hill and School Lane, just off the centre of the village of Broadclyst.

Broadclyst Village is partially within the Killerton Estate and a number of properties within the village are in the ownership and protection of the National Trust. The village has a fine parish church, a primary school, Clyst Vale Community College, offering secondary and further education, a Post Office/general stores, a restaurant and two inns.

Broadclyst is in a most accessible location, being just 4 miles from the M5 motorway and Exeter Airport.

The cathedral city and county town of Exeter is also readily accessible, being about five miles away, and has a number of excellent schools for boys and girls of all ages, a fine university and excellent cultural and recreational facilities. There is a mainline station with high-speed trains operating to London Paddington.

Ford House has the benefit of some useful outbuildings, including a stable block containing a coach house/garage, which is accessed from the land via a pair of timber gates and has stables with two looseboxes, a tack room and a hayloft over. This stable block has great potential for a number of uses.

There is an area of lawned garden to the front of the house with flower and shrub beds. To the side of the house is an attractive cobbled courtyard flanked by flower beds and to the rear of the stable block is a very secluded walled garden, predominantly laid to lawn with a number of mature trees, including a magnificent horse chestnut, a productive fig tree and a eucalyptus.
