Property description

Tenure: Freehold

A rare opportunity to acquire a unique architect designed 5 bedroom detached house built to the highest specification and set in approximately 1 acre. EPC: to follow

Arguably one of the most individual properties in the local area this unique property was constructed by bespoke builders and architectural stonemasons Harvey of Corscombe with the aid of local architect Anthony Hollow. The current owner is the second, after the first who had the property commissioned, and they have been in residence since 1979 after spotting the advert in the Country Life magazine. The elevations of the building are constructed from block and hamstone with a hand cut slate tiled roof complimented by long windows flooding the property with light and an imposing . The house is full of character with a hamstone triangular open fireplace, ship's beam joists, 'Terrazzo' stone spiral staircase, vaulted ceilings and picture frame windows and mezzanine levels. Wonderful views can be enjoyed across the open countryside and rural views from every window. Recent improvements include the fitting of 2 modern bathroom suites. The accommodation briefly comprises of an entrance hall, kitchen/dining room, utility room, sitting room, snug and cloakroom to the ground floor with 5 bedrooms (master en-suite) and a family bathroom on the first floor.
The front of the property is accessed from a quiet lane serving the small village of Holditch where the house is well screened from the road by a small copse and foliage. A sweeping driveway leads up to the Double Garage (18'4 x 7'5) with mezzanine level and adjoining store room (13'1 x 8'2). The total plot extends to approximately 1 Acre with the predominant part laid to lawn. The mature gardens are awash with impressive trees including silver birch, beech and ancient oak. There are plenty of fruit trees throughout the gardens with numerous apple, cherry, plum, pear trees and even a meddler and mulberry. There is also a useful store in the form of a block built former stable (29'1 x 12'19) which could be used for a variety of uses. The property really must be viewed to be appreciated.

The house is set in a peaceful semi rural location on the borders of Somerset, Devon and Dorset and enjoys a Southerly facing aspect across traditional unspoilt countryside. The villages of Chardstock and Thorncombe are both about 2½ miles distant, each with Post Office/general stores and primary schools, whilst Chard and Axminster are both some 5 miles distant catering for most daily needs. Axminster has the added benefit of a mainline rail station (London Waterloo) and the South Coast at Lyme Regis is about 9 miles away.
