*** VIRTUAL VIEWING TOUR *** Situated in an enviable and stunning country park setting. Spacious 5 bedroomed detached family home with beautiful 3 acres of gardens and grounds, yet only 0.5 miles from Crediton and 8 miles to Exeter.

DESCRIPTION Rookery Lodge is set in the heart of a large country park known as Creedy Park, which provides a marvellous setting in typical Devon rolling countryside, with rolling fields and woodland surrounding.  Creedy Park couldn’t be better placed, found between beautiful Sandford with its ‘foody pubs’ (a nice walk along the Millennium footpath) and Crediton with its market town amenities, supermarkets, leisure centre with swimming and links to Exeter via the link road.

The house itself is believed to have been originally built in the 1920’s and was been extended in the 1970’s. The property is sited towards the rear of the plot, taking full advantage of the stunning country views and predominately south facing gardens and grounds which extend to approximately 3 acres.

The property extends to around 2700 square feet of accommodation and the rooms are well proportioned throughout. The living room extends to 27 feet with a woodburner at one end and a  pleasant conservatory taking full advantage of the views at the other end. There is a fully fitted kitchen, complete with oil fired Aga, built in electric oven, gas hob and integrated microwave. Beyond the kitchen is a useful utility and a separate dining room.   There is a good sized study which could be used as another bedroom if required as there is a handily placed downstairs shower room.

On the first floor, there are 5 double bedrooms, the master bedroom enjoys a large en-suite bathroom and a separate family bathroom. There is scope to create further en-suite facilities if required.

The gardens offer a lovely mix of sweeping lawns with well stocked flower beds and borders, a wide selection of fruit trees, productive vegetable beds and a paddock.   

Outside, there is a wide selection of useful outbuildings including a sizeable workshop, garden store, greenhouse, garage, woodshed and open fronted car port.

SANDFORD   is one of Mid Devon's most picturesque villages, being conveniently located approximately 1½ miles north of the busy town of Crediton (8 miles from Exeter).  The village retains a real community feel with the focal point being the village square and Lamb Inn.  There is a post office / store, an Offsted registered playgroup, a highly sought after primary school (senior children are taken to Queen Elizabeths School, Crediton), village hall, a further Inn and historic parish church.  Sandford is well served by sporting clubs with a top quality cricket club, football, tennis and nearby rugby club. From the outskirts of the village, runs the Sandford to Crediton footpath which passes through the Millennium Green, crossing several times over a pretty stream, winding its way up through woodlands and into the outskirts of Crediton.

CREDITON is an old Mid Devon market town with a wealth of history, being situated just 7.5 miles north-west of the Cathedral City of Exeter with the M5 motorway some 3 miles further on.  The town is surrounded by unspoilt farmland in an area of great natural beauty.  There is a regular daily bus service to Exeter plus trains every hour to Exeter and Barnstaple and a local town bus which covers most urban areas.  The town is most famous for its ancient parish church and for being the birthplace of St Boniface in 680 AD.  It has excellent schooling facilities at both senior and junior levels and a sports and leisure centre incorporating a superb swimming pool.  The town has an excellent selection of shops with a Morrisons and a large Tesco superstore/petrol filling station.
