Enchanting & secret garden estate hidden in the hills

Location

It is difficult to imagine that such a beautiful and peaceful location could be within only a few miles of the centre of a Cathedral City in the South of England. Driving to Sherwood up the long no through road, leading through the woods, one leaves all traces of the outside world behind and enters a private and enchanting environment.

The property stands completely on its own surrounded by farmland and woodland but only about 2 miles out of the village of Newton St Cyres, which has a post office/ shop as well as Quickes renowned farm shop selling their award winning traditional cheeses. Of course being so close to Exeter there are many facilities, including the University, mainline railway, airport, regional shopping outlets (inc John Lewis) and hospital but, as a less busy alternative, the old market town of Crediton meets most everyday needs.

Description

The appeal of the site, less than 5 miles as the crow flies from Exeter Cathedral, but protected in the encircling wooded hills, was obviously appreciated by Walter Cave, in 1907 when the present Arts and Craft styled house was built on the site of an earlier dwelling. The house stands centrally within the deep protected valley.

The large two storey house arranged around a central courtyard has been occupied by two generations of the vendor's family and some modifications to the original layout have been made to accommodate this. These could be undone to restore the house to the original design, which would include 4 or 5 fine reception rooms and up to 10 bedrooms.

The main house and garden are supported by a range of outbuildings and include the cottage where the gardener currently lives.

A further approximately 25 acres of pasture is available under separate negotiation.

Square Footage: 7,479 sq ft
Acreage: 24.25 Acres
