Full description

A stunning Grade II listed Georgian Rectory, in an edge of Village location, within a quaint half acre plot boasting far-reaching views over Exmoor National Park. This quintessentially English property would make an ideal family home or a rural retreat for those used to busy city life. The house briefly comprises six bedrooms, three bathrooms, five downstairs reception rooms with an additional kitchen/breakfast room off of a grand reception hall with a sweeping staircase with ornate balustrades leading up to a galleried landing. Throughout the house the period architecture has been sympathetically restored and modernised to a high standard. To the outside of the property, a gated entrance leads to a ‘drivearound’ approach to the house. The property is secluded within established gardens with many mature shrubs, trees, large lawns and a Cottage garden. The barn is great for storage and has the potential to convert to a self-contained annexe or holiday rental. Nearby, the village of High Bickington has an active community and offers a primary school, pubs, Doctors surgery, post office and other amenities. Barnstaple is just 9 miles to the north, in turn leading on to the popular coastal destinations of Croyde, Saunton Sands Woolacombe and Ilfracombe. Whilst being close to the Exmoor National Park, the property is within easy access of Exeter and Tiverton Parkway, in turn placing Bristol and London within reach by train or by motorway.

Local Area
High Bickington is set within a rural and established location but does not lack accessability. It is located about 15 – 20 minute drive from three local centres; Barnstaple, South Molton and Great Torrington. Exeter is within an hour’s drive to the south, the heart of Exmoor a similar distance, 45 minutes to the north are the popular beaches of the North Devon coast.
The house itself is secluded on the edge of the Village, within high hedges and a mature garden.
There is an active community within High Bickington centred around a newly built community centre and primary school. There are two pubs, a post office and a Village Community shop is about to open.

The onward chain...
The sellers are relocating to Bristol and have a property which they can move in to. There is, therefore, no onward chain.

Our seller says…
'This is a beautiful house, lovingly restored over the last 12 years.
It is so comfortable as a home offering the period design and proportions of a typical Georgian house together with an integrated small cottage which provides cosy accommodation on those dark winter nights.
The gardens are splendid in Spring and early summer.
We will miss it.'
