Situation - Woodleigh Lodge is set in the beautiful Mole Valley, in a delightful position on the banks of the river. The local village of Chittlehamholt is about a mile and a half away and has a public house and village shop as well as Highbullen Hotel Golf and Country Club on the outskirts of the village. About 5 miles to the east is the thriving and popular market town of South Molton, which offers an excellent range of shopping, social and banking facilities as well as infant, junior and senior schools. The A361 North Devon Link Road bypasses the town and provides an excellent road link to the regional centre of Barnstaple to the west and to Tiverton and the M5 (Junction 27) to the east where there is a railway station at Tiverton Parkway on the London Paddington line.
Exmoor National Park and the impressive North Devon coastline with its steep cliffs and wide sandy beaches is also within easy reach by car.

Description - Woodleigh Lodge is a highly attractive former fishing lodge of traditional stone construction with brick quoins under a slate roof. The house has been much improved by the current owners with exacting attention to detail and the versatile accommodation is presented in superb decorative order throughout. The house enjoys an elevated position above the river and enjoys a highly attractive outlook along the river and over the river meadow and woodland that is included with the property.

Accommodation - ENCLOSED PORCH with a tiled floor and further door into the spacious DINING ROOM with two openings into the SITTING ROOM, a superb, light room with a wide picture window overlooking the river, glazed double doors to the garden and a fireplace with wood burner. The KITCHEN/BREAKFAST ROOM has a tiled floor and a lovely feel to it with a good range of hand made, cream painted oak units with polished slate worktops, Belfast sink, tall larder unit, dresser unit, space for dishwasher, space for fridge freezer and space for range cooker.
Off the dining room and kitchen is a REAR HALL with access to a further RECEPTION ROOM/SNUG/BEDROOM 4 with a wood burning stove. The hall also has doors into a useful shelved STORAGE ROOM, LAUNDRY ROOM and CLOAKROOM as well as door to the rear. From this door is a covered walkway with door into a handy UTILITY ROOM with Belfast sink.
On the first floor there is a GALLERIED LANDING leading off to TWO DOUBLE BEDROOMS, each with built in wardrobes with each having superb EN-SUITE SHOWER ROOMS fitted with modern suites. Finally a THIRD BEDROOM, DRESSING ROOM and BATHROOM form a superb GUEST SUITE.

Outside - From the road that passes the property a DOUBLE TIMBER GATED ENTRANCE leads through an attractive, high stone wall into a gravelled parking area for 4 or more cars. A trellis archway leads to a level lawned area surrounded with mature shrubs. Steps lead down to a paved and gravelled terrace with a stone wall overlooking the river. To the rear of the house is a further gravelled area which is also accessed from the back door.
The RIVER MEADOW leads away from the house and alongside the river and has a separate, gated entrance off the road.
Opposite the gate into the river meadow on the other side of the road is a STONE BARN 42' x 15' of traditional stone under a box profile sheet roof with a concrete floor. Internally the barn is divided to provide a single garage, the remainder is old fashioned stabling. Steps lead up to the loft which runs the whole length of the barn.
