The village boasts a sailing club, four pubs, village hall, general store, post office, primary and pre-schools as well as an independent preparatory school. Exmouth is 2 miles with its marina and availability of other water based sports.

Lot 1

Bungalow with 1.03 Acres coloured green on plan. Loxhill is a delightfully located country bungalow set down a short private lane, on the southern side of Lympstone and not far from the outskirts of Exmouth. Due to its fine location and the grounds included with lot 1, it offers an excellent opportunity for alteration, extension or even possible replacement, subject to the necessary consents.

Spacious entrance hall with airing cupboard and cloakroom off. The sitting room is a triple aspect room with a gas fire with brick fireplace behind and with patio doors to the verandah and garden. The kitchen has a range of cupboards and drawers, sink, gas boiler and door to rear garden. Bedroom 1 faces south whilst bedroom 2 faces north at the rear with rural views. Bedroom 3 has in recent years had a shower cubicle installed though could be removed. The family bathroom has a bath, wc and wash basin.

The bungalow is set in a good sized garden with driveway with parking plus detached single garage. To the east of the bungalow is a former kitchen garden which in recent has become overgrown. In addition part of the field to the west and north is included providing useful grazing etc.

Agricultural land of 6.51 Acres coloured yellow on plan. This is a quality pasture field with extensive road frontage to both Courtlands Lane and Longbrook Lane with a gateway opposite Sowden House. A public footpath goes through the field on the northern boundary. There is a dilapidated agricultural building on the eastern boundary.

Lot 3

Agricultural land of 4.63 Acres coloured blue on plan. This has access off the private track (coloured brown) and is a productive largely level pasture field. There is a versatile, fully enclosed general purpose building (45 x 45) of steel frame, concrete block, Yorkshire boarding and corrugated roof. To the front is an open yard area.

Lot 4

Agricultural land of 4.71 Acres coloured pink on plan. This is another productive, mainly level, pasture field which has access off the access track.

Overall the property amounts to about 16.88 acres.
