Situated in the heart of Bampton, Castle House is conveniently located just a short walk from the many amenities that this charming, historic village has to offer which include shops, pubs, primary school, doctors surgery and a lovely 15th century church. The larger market town of Tiverton lies 7 miles to the south with a wide range of facilities including the well regarded Blundell's school. From Tiverton, there is fast dual carriageway access to J27 of the M5 and Tiverton Parkway mainline station with regular intercity services to London (Paddington 2 hrs). The whole area is well known for its outstanding natural beauty with Exmoor National Park just 3.5 miles to the north and the beaches of the beautiful North Devon coast are only a 40 minute drive.
Castle House is a fine Grade II Listed Georgian townhouse believed to date from 1710 with a facade added in 1835. With generously proportioned rooms and an elegant interior, the property provides well proportioned and particularly spacious accommodation which has been updated over recent years by the current owners. The property boasts a wealth of period features, so typical of the Georgian era, including an impressive stunning sweeping staircase, marble fireplaces, ornate cornicing, arch entrances, oak flooring, sash windows and high ceilings.
Beautiful panelled front door with window light and columns, pilasters on either side, leading into an impressive entrance hall with two principal reception rooms either side, each with marble fireplaces, ornate cornicing and sash windows with the original shutters. A central hallway with an elegant staircase and access to a cloakroom, study/ playroom and a breakfast room with oil-fired Aga. A secondary staircase and a back door into the pretty courtyard garden. The kitchen has the original stone flag floor and is fitted with a range of units incorporating an electric oven and hob. There is a useful utility/store room with ample space for white goods and an oil-fired boiler.
The sweeping staircase leads up to a half landing with cloakroom off and to the galleried landing overlooking a beautiful arched window. Situated off the landing is a shower room, a family bathroom and four good sized, double bedrooms, most with cast iron feature fireplaces. Beyond the secondary staircase, are two further double bedrooms, which would once have been the servants quarters. An extensive attic room, with storage rooms, can be accessed via the stairs from Bedroom 4, ideal as a teenager's den or office.
Outside, to the rear of the house, is a large courtyard which provides off street parking. A workshop/ former tack room has the original cobbled floor and fireplace, and there is an attached open fronted outbuilding/store. These rooms offer annex potential, if required. From the attractive courtyard, steps lead to the partly walled, south facing gardens mainly laid to lawn, with deep herbaceous boarders, fruit trees and a top terrace with wonderful views over Bampton. To the front of the house is a stone wall and wrought iron gate with paving interspersed with flowering shrubs and roses.
There is a vehicular right of way to the rear of the property through wrought iron gates and wooden five bar gates in to the courtyard beyond, which provides off street parking and a turning area.
