Accommodation - Hele House
An entrance porch opens to the reception hall with attractive flagstone flooring, stairs rising to the first floor, cloaks cupboards, a downstairs WC and further service rooms including the utility and adjoining larder. Further doors give access to the reception rooms, kitchen/breakfast room and the study, which sits to the West elevation with a fitted bookcase and feature fireplace.

The drawing room is a glorious extended space for families and entertaining with French doors to the South-facing terrace, views along the lawned garden and an open fire with marble mantelpiece. A further door leads to the dual aspect sitting room which again benefits from French doors to the terrace and an open fireplace with marble surround, while the conservatory adjoins the drawing room, opening to the terrace via French doors, with tiled flooring and an open outlook over the gardens.

The kitchen/breakfast room sits to the Eastern elevation with a range of fitted wall and base units beneath a ceramic work surface, framing a central timber topped island, and incorporating a double inset sink, dishwasher, electric hob, oven and grill alongside a separate electric cooker. An attractive dresser is fitted to one side in addition to the 4 oven oil fired Aga. From the breakfast seating area, French doors again open to a paved seating area overlooking the gardens while a further door leads to the dining room with a convenient pantry adjacent. The dining room continues with an Easterly elevation and French doors to the conservatory.

To the first floor, a galleried landing gives access to 6 well-appointed bedrooms. The master suite sits to the front elevation with a Southerly and Westerly dual aspect, a range of fitted wardrobes, a fitted 3 piece en suite bathroom with dual wash basins and an adjoining dressing room with further fitted wardrobes.

Bedroom 2 is another generous double with fitted wardrobes, a light dual aspect with views over the garden and an en suite bathroom fitted with a 3 piece suite and shower over the bath.
Bedroom 3 includes a range of fitted wardrobes and currently serves as an ironing room with two windows to the East.
Bedroom 4 has a window to the side aspect and a fitted en suite bathroom.

Bedroom 5 again overlooks the entrance courtyard with a good range of fitted wardrobes and sits adjacent to Bedroom 6 which includes an extensive range of fitted wardrobes and currently serves as a second dressing room.

Hele Cottage
This charming detached single storey cottage sits to the opposite side of the gravelled courtyard with its own enclosed garden area. From the front door a hallway leads to the dual aspect sitting room with French doors returning to the front, an open fireplace and an archway through to the dining room with a window to the Western elevation.

Also enjoying a Westerly outlook, the kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a range of wall and base units incorporating a single bowl sink and drainer, with space for a 4 hob gas cooker.

Bedroom 1 enjoys a dual aspect with French opening to the garden and a fitted wardrobe. Bedroom 2 includes a window to the front aspect and a further fitted wardrobe. Both bedrooms are served by a Jack and Jill bathroom fitted with a 3 piece suite.

Approaching the property across the central gravelled courtyard, there is ample parking as well as a pair of garages and a further double garage adjoining the cottage, all with concrete floors and up and over doors. Also accessible is a sizeable potting shed with double doors, an incredibly useful garden machinery and storage space with power and lighting.

The main house sits at the centre of the well-kept gardens which are predominantly laid to lawns with colourful shrub borders and a mature beech hedge enclosing the whole, offering a good degree of privacy.

To the North-east corner there is a croquet lawn with a decorative rose bed to one side and a surround of light tree and shrub planting while to the North-west are the enclosed cottage gardens, the two divided by a mature hedge. Stepping down from the croquet lawn, a small flight of stone steps is flanked by raised stone beds with mature rose and lavender bushes before arriving at the lower lawn and the paved seating area to the front of the kitchen/breakfast room.

Continuing toward the South aspect, the paved terrace occupies a wonderfully warm and pleasant location with French doors returning to the main receptions, framed by decorative shrub and flower beds, overlooking the level lawns which run down to the hedged boundary.
From our offices, proceed up the High Street and follow Jury Road out of Dulverton. After a few minutes turn left onto Heleball Lane, recognisable by a "restricted byway" signpost. The driveway entrance will be found on the right hand side.
