Formerly the Estate manager's house for Castle Hill which is one of the finest country estates in Devon, Filleigh Lodge enjoys a private south facing setting adjacent to the very pretty St Paul's Church which was built in 1730 and extended in 1876. With impressive stone elevations under a slate roof and built around 1840, the accommodation has a size and style which is typical of the Victorian era with light and spacious high ceiling rooms which is a style of home rarely available in this area.
The accommodation has retained a number of features including some elaborately coved ceilings, panelled doors, original fireplaces, boarded floors, a feature balustrade staircase with a half landing, and a small servants staircase in the North wing. The accommodation also benefits from oil fired radiator central heating and a number of windows have been sympathetically replaced with UPVc sealed unit double glazing.
On the ground floor there is a living room with a fireplace, wood burning stove and a bay window with French doors to the garden. Adjacent to the living room there is a very large dining room with a fireplace, woodburning stove and a boarded floor. The entrance hall has been turned into a library/study with fitted bookshelves, base cupboards and an open fireplace. There is a contemporary modern kitchen with a double Aga cook/heat range, an extensive range of base, wall and tall storage units, a double stainless steel oven, a built in ceramic hob with a concealed extractor hood over, a built in wine rack and bookshelves, a boarded floor and recessed spotlights. Opening off the kitchen there is a large family room with a fireplace and fitted stove, a French door to the garden, and a built in glazed drinks cabinet and store. Also off the kitchen there is a large rear hall with cloaks area, a separate wc, a utility area and an office/store room. From the family room there is access to the north wing which would provide the ground floor with an ideal annexe with a large sitting room, a second kitchen/dining room with a built in oven hob and extractor hood, a good range of base and wall units, and recessed spotlights. The hall in this wing also provides access to the servants staircase and a useful cellar/store.
On the first floor there are 4 double bedrooms in the main house, the master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom and there is a large bathroom with a quality 4 piece white suite including a glazed double shower cubicle with a thermostatic shower. From the landing a small staircase provides access to a fully boarded loft with windows which arranged in 3 rooms. In the north wing of the first floor there are 2 bedrooms, a second bathroom and a seperate wc.
The house is set in approximately 1 acre of formal gardens with extensive lawns on 3 sides. There is a large flower and shrub bed feature with sitting area and the original gravel drive and entrance gates are also an attractive feature. To the rear of the house there is a large parking area and double gates provide access to a fully enclosed private courtyard with a stone built garage and workshop with power, loft over and an oil storage tank housed in the workshop. There is a stone built stable block with 4 full size stables having a loft over, and adjacent to the stables there is a large tackroom/hay store. From the stables there is access to a turn out area and the gently sloping paddocks extend to approximately 3 acres.
