Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Grade II listed former Devon Longhouse in an idyllic rural setting in the heart of North Devon. Beautiful landscaped gardens. Tennis court. Outbuildings. Ponds. Woodland. In all about 18 acres.

East Hele is an attractive period property situated in a wonderful rural position in the heart of North Devon. Despite the idyllic and peaceful location, the house is well located via the North Devon Link Road (A361) to Tiverton and the M5 motorway and the A377 to Exeter.

East Hele is Grade II Listed and made of cob and stone under a thatched and slate roof. The house has been extended and renovated over a number of years and the result is an immaculate and beautifully presented house in very good condition throughout. It retains a wealth of period features, traditional character and feel.

The house is based around a courtyard of buildings and has been cleverly extended to the north east into an adjoining barn with a spectacular garden room. The north side of the courtyard, that is adjacent to the lane, is currently a covered barbecue area with various storage buildings.

A particular feature of East Hele is the tranquil setting and wonderful grounds that surround the house. The extensive gardens have been developed to provide all year colour and they have been opened a number of times under the National Garden Scheme. Two ponds have been created and are serviced by a stream that flows through the property to a tributary of the River Mole.

The land would be suitable for equine or livestock purposes. South west of the house is an all-weather tennis court.

There is a large workshop and store and former stables, currently used for machinery and log storage.
