Situation - Widworthy Mill is situated along a private drive, shared with just one other property, on the picturesque outskirts of the village of Wilmington. The village itself lies along the A35 conveniently situated between the market towns of Honiton to the West and Axminster to the East. Both Honiton and Axminster benefit from thriving communities, a wide range of shopping facilities, doctors surgeries, hospitals, primary and secondary schooling. Both towns offer a direct rail service to London via the Waterloo line. The Cathedral and University city of Exeter is approximately 23 miles to the West via the A30 dual carriageway, which in turn leads to junction 30 of the M5. A short distance to the East of the city is Exeter international airport offering flights to an ever growing range of domestic and international destinations. The stunning Jurassic Coast with its dramatic cliffs, historic harbours and golden beaches is just over 8 miles to the south at Seaton.
Description - Widworthy Mill is a detached former Miller's house which together with the neighbouring Mill form a picturesque rustic enclave on the outskirts of the village. The accommodation is a versatile and comfortable blend of modern convenience and period charm with exposed beams, inglenook fireplaces and the full benefit of oil fired central heating and bespoke hardwood leaded light double glazed windows.
From the driveway approach, a leaded light entrance door opens to a Lobby with cloaks hanging space and further panel glazed door into the hall, which runs the full depth of the property and enjoys views out across the gardens at the far end via leaded light french door and side windows. Stripped pine panelled doors lead off on either side to the Study, Living Room, Kitchen, Dining Room and Cloakroom.
Both reception rooms feature fine inglenook fireplaces and natural hard wood block flooring, the Study housing a wood burning stove on a terracotta hearth whilst the Living Room sports a brick arched open grate, a bright dual aspect and views to the South and West over open countryside.
On the other side of the Hall is the open plan Kitchen/Dining Room fitted at one end with a range of cottage style painted units whilst providing ample space for family dining at the other. Leading off the Kitchen is a generous Utility Room with secondary entrance door from the drive and providing access through to the double glazed Sun Room/Conservatory. With a pitched and glazed roof, principally glazed elevations, and a light stone tiled floor, this comfortable room provides panoramic views over the gardens to the surrounding countryside.
On the first floor are 5 bedrooms, each accessed via stripped pine panelled doors, the master and guest rooms laying on the South side of the house, the former enjoying a bright dual aspect and the latter with corner shower enclosure. All bedrooms are served by the family bathroom with marble vanity surfaces and suite incorporating a mixer shower over the bath.
Spanning the whole top floor of the property is an integral yet self contained apartment with external independent access via a wrought iron staircase providing annexe/holiday letting potential as required. Beautifully lit by leaded light hardwood double glazed windows to all four elevations providing 360 degree views over surrounding countryside, the accommodation is chiefly open plan in arrangement with sitting, sleeping and kitchen areas loosely defined by exposed character beams. At one end is a generously proportioned Bathroom with basin, w.c., bidet and bath.
Outside - The gardens and grounds surround the property to the East, South and West of the house which is approached via a long, sweeping tarmac driveway ending in wide forecourt providing extensive parking and also housing the detached garage/workshop.
