Full description

A superbly appointed country property occupying a tranquil setting with glorious views. In all about 8.97 acres.


Lower Down is a beautifully appointed brand new gentleman's residence, built in Georgian style with exacting attention to detail using globally sourced materials. High ceilings, deep skirting's, ornate cornicing and ceiling roses are just some of the typical Georgian features throughout this home. Polished Carrera marble adorns the bathroom, en-suites and cloakroom. The bespoke kitchen boasts polished natural granite surfaces with built in appliances and LaCanche ‘chemin’ range cooker. Feature Georgian fireplaces in the drawing room, dining room and orangery benefit from living flame fires combining classic, period style with up to date controlled convenience. The ground floor has engineered Oak and natural marble flooring with underfloor heating. The system is fed by an Air Source heat pump with high efficiency levels and zoned controls.

Lower Down occupies a semi-rural position set within rolling countryside close to the popular village of Witheridge. Witheridge is located equidistant between the market towns of Tiverton and South Molton and affords amenities for everyday use including a primary school, local shops, public house and Church. The North Devon Link Road (A361) lies approximately 4 miles distant and provides access westward to the North Devon coastline and eastwards to the M5 motorway (Junction 27). A mainline railway can be found adjacent to this junction with a direct line to London Paddington.

Located a short distance from the property is Downe Farm Event Centre where 4* International Event Rider Tim Cheffings is based. Facilities include an outdoor 60m x 60m arena, 60m x 23m indoor arena and cross country schooling. Both Pontispool and Bicton Arena lie within easy reach of the property providing further schooling and both regional and internal competition.

There is a wealth of both primary and secondary schooling within the area. The sought after private school of Blundells is located close by in Tiverton and West Buckland School near Barnstaple. State schooling can be found at both in Tiverton and South Molton. Further afield both Taunton and Exeter boast a number of excellent schools with Exeter also hosting a highly regarded university.

A striking pillared entrance with wrought iron electric gates (with intercom) and sweeping gravel driveway leads to Lower Down with a generous parking area and triple garage. Large expanses of newly laid lawns surround the property with structured planting of trees and hedgerows. A newly constructed well supplies water for the grounds, a security system and Rolec Electricity vehicle charging point (in the garage) have also been installed.

The land beyond is laid to pasture in two enclosures and benefits from full planning permission to erect a stable block and ménage.
