Description

Constructed in 1862, The Old Woodbury Court House was built to house Woodbury Magistrates Court and a Policemans House along with a cell. Situated only a two minute walk away from the village with shops and bus stop to Exeter, the property was divided into four apartments years later, each having recently been fully renovated and re-furbished along with improvements to the outside of the building. The kitchens and bathrooms have all been replaced with brand new quality units and the apartments have been modernised throughout. The apartments are fitted with new carpets, curtains, blinds in the bathroom and kitchen, plus light fittings with shades (chandelier in the living room with the remaining lights being glass). The building retains a number of period features including impressive high ceilings and large period sash windows. There is a very grand communal entrance with flagstone flooring and an original granite staircase. Each property has its own brick built storage shed to the rear and there is a communal courtyard with a sunny aspect. Lighting to the front and rear of the building is operated with a light sensor control. Flat 3 is a first floor two-bedroom apartment with good views over neighbouring countryside from some of the rooms.

Situation

Woodbury Parish, which includes the villages of Woodbury, Woodbury Salterton and Exton, is one of the largest Parishes in Devon. It encompasses much of Woodbury Common, an outstanding area of natural beauty and enjoys a thriving community spirit rooted in the church and chapel, in the school and in agriculture. In days past, the Parish was frequented by Sir Francis Drake and there is a chapel dedicated to his memory at St Swithin's in the village centre. Some of the facilities of the village include two excellent public houses, a village store and post office, restaurants, doctor's surgery, nearby golf club and leisure facilities at Woodbury Park and a bus service operating between Exmouth and Exeter, being only two minutes away.
