Westacott is a delightful thatched house believed to date from the seventeenth century. The house contains a number of attractive features including exposed beams and character fireplaces.

Most of the rooms in the house have wonderful garden and countryside views and predominately face south. Approached by a private driveway leading to the main entrance, the front porch takes you into the hall and through to kitchen/breakfast room. This is a spacious room, with plenty of useful cupboards and ample space for a breakfast table. There is also a utility room, cloakroom and walk-in larder, with the back door leading you into the rear courtyard. The sitting room has a beamed
ceiling and an inglenook fireplace with original bread oven and beyond here is the dining room, which is currently used as an office. A staircase from this room leads to the integral annexe, with two bedrooms and bathroom.

The main staircase from the back hall leads to the first floor where there are three double bedrooms, a single bedroom and a bathroom with separate WC. The double bedrooms face south and enjoy far reaching views across the surrounding countryside.

The property is located just outside the popular village of Shobrooke, which lies approximately 2 miles east of Crediton and 11 miles from the City of Exeter. It is surrounded by picturesque Mid-Devon countryside providing a selection of footpaths and walks through Shobrooke Park.

The market town of Crediton, about 2 miles away, provides a comprehensive range of everyday facilities, including churches, schools, banks, Post Office, shops, delicatessens, supermarkets, leisure complex, library and the Queen Elizabeth Academy. There is a farmers' market held in the square every fortnight.

A wider range of educational, cultural, recreational and shopping facilities is available in the cathedral city and county town of Exeter, 11 miles away, and in Tiverton, 10 miles away.

The gardens at Westacott lie predominantly to the front of the property and include a wide variety of mature shrubs, trees and neat lawn areas. To the side of the house is a double garage and drive for parking for several cars.

Further land is available by separate negotiation and further information is available from the vendors agent.
