Full description

A unique detached property with approx 4.6 acres of gardens, woodland and meadow, ample parking and outbuildings, all located in the stunning Taw Valley with excellent road and rail links.

DESCRIPTION It isn’t often that the word unique is used appropriately in estate agents’ details but in this instance, it really is true. Monita House is a wonderful detached property believed to date to just under 200 years and sits beside its very own former railway platform which was used to transport local produce to London. The property is largely open plan to the ground floor and with two staircases, the current first floor layout could easily be changed to incorporate a more private arrangement of bedrooms or the provision of a bathroom (subject to permissions). It benefits from an oil fired Rayburn and a wood burning stove in the living room which easily heats the whole house. Outside, a raised decked area provides a fantastic seating area overlooking the gardens and woodland.

It isn’t only the building that is unique, the driveway in sweeps through the woodland and a track marks the old railway leading to a superb timber workshop and store. The land and gardens extend to approx. 4.6 acres and are a mix of lawn, meadow and woodland with natural tree-falls providing an ample supply of wood for the wood burner. A former stone Post-house can be found in the grounds and it may be possible to reinstate this as a holiday cottage or annexe (subject to planning) if required. The surrounding area is famous for its natural beauty with a wide range of flora and fauna including kingfishers, woodpeckers, nuthatches and otters.

LOCATION  Monita House is just 3 miles from the popular rural town of Chulmleigh with its health centre, dentist, shops, restaurants, public houses and schools for all age ranges. The house is also a short distance from Eggesford Station, on the well known 'Tarka' line which provides main line connections at Exeter, the property is only 19 miles from the regional centre of Barnstaple, 20 miles from the city of Exeter, 15 miles from the busy market town of South Molton and 13 miles from Crediton. The area provides a wide range of outdoor pursuits including fishing on the Mole and Taw, horse riding, cycling, walking and golf at Libbaton and High Bullen.

DIRECTIONS  From Crediton, proceed on the A377 towards Barnstaple, pass through the villages of Copplestone and Lapford and upon passing Eggesford station, you will see the entrance to the Fox and Hounds Hotel, take the turning into the drive of the hotel and the 5 bar gate to Monita House will be found on the left.
