Tenure: Freehold

Worth House is a superb family home which sits in a private and convenient position close to Tiverton. The house is positioned in the middle of about 15 acres of grounds and has a number of outbuildings, including secondary accommodation and about a mile of the River Exe. 14.96 acres. EPC: F.

Worth House is situated less than 2 miles north of Tiverton, in a private position in the middle of its own land with no public rights of way. The house is approached via a long private drive, which crosses the River Exe and leads up to the main house.

Schools in the area include Blundells in Tiverton (Worth House lies within the reduced fee boundary for Blundells), Wellington School, Kings College, Queens College, Taunton School and Exeter School. Slightly further afield are Millfield and Wells Cathedral School.

Originally built for the Worth family, it is believed there has been a house on the site for around 1000 years. The property was in the ownership of the Worth family until about 130 years ago and the original medieval hall house was knocked down and rebuilt in the 1930's. Worth House is a pretty, extremely well proportioned and manageable family home.

The layout of the house is typical of its era, with large symmetrical square rooms, high ceilings and lots of useable space. The large kitchen/breakfast room forms the focal point of the ground floor.

On the first floor, one is greeted by a large landing area, off which there are 6 large bedrooms and 6 bathrooms, as well as substantial storage space.

A large outbuilding offers ample storage space, a double garage and 2 stables on the ground floor. On the first floor are 2 flats. Both are let out on assured shorthold tenancies.

Approximately a mile of the River Exe offers extensive fishing.
