Withleigh - Nr Tiverton


Riverside House is a detached four bedroom chalet house built in 1958 and subsequently extended. The property has been well modernised and has the benefit of oil fired central heating and double glazed windows. Riverside House lies in a beautiful rural location about three miles to the West of the busy market town of Tiverton. The property lies within its own enchanting woodland gardens with paddock of about 3 acres in a pretty valley. Running down through the valley is a stream which joins the Little Dart River onto which the property has a long frontage with a pretty riverside walk.

The house is set well back and up from the river so no fears of flooding! To the rear of the property there is a paddock of about 3 acres with some lovely mature oaks as well as a numerous oak and ash saplings which have been planted. This whole area is renowned for its outstanding natural beauty and cannot fail to appeal to the country lover. There is a good shopping centre in Tiverton where can also be found Petroc College of Further Education, Blundells School as well as a new hospital and very good golf course.

There is also an additional 4.188 acres of land available - offers in the region of 55,000 - see Lot 2.

To the side of the property is a useful concrete parking area with adjoining log store and oil fired central heating boiler. The main approach to the property is via a five bar gate onto a large gravel parking and turning area, off of which is a detached double garage 5.90m x 5.47m with light and power connected. To the side is a lean-to car port.

To the front of the house is a paved terrace, beyond which are lawns interspersed with mature ornamental trees and shrubs. At the rear is a further paved area with a brick built barbeque and pretty circular paved sitting area.

The gardens lie principally to the South side and form one side of a pretty wooded valley, down through which runs a small stream. The beautiful woodland gardens comprise lawns interspersed with mature ornamental trees and shrubs through which run paths with a bridge over the stream leading up to a small lake adjoining which is a timber chalet and large decking area - the chalet has power and light connected - very important for the fridge for the gin and tonic.

By the front entrance gate there is an additional area of about acre of coppice with a path running alongside the Little Dart River, which leads to a lovely sitting area by a curve of the river. Within this area there is also a large concrete standing off which is a sturdy detached timber garage/workshop building of 5.0m x 5.93m. Adjoining the building is a detached chicken house of timber construction measuring approx 7.43m x 5.57m. Both buildings have light and power connected.

LOT 2: Is available by separate negotiation and comprises 4.188 acres which is a good lifers' dream come true! This comprises the field which has been split into three separate paddocks by way of some good stock proof fencing and in the main paddock is situated a detached timber building approx 6.0m x 6.0m with a cedar shingle roof. The building is substantially built with a concrete floor and has partly built partition walls inside. Connections are in for water, drainage and electricity and it would certainly seem that the previous owner who built this had in mind some form of residential use! Within the paddock there is also a polytunnel of approx 30ft x 20ft with light and power connected and automatic watering system. There is also a large greenhouse, approx 30ft x 10ft, again with water and power connected. There is an adjoining fruit cage of approx 30ft x 12ft with concrete base. This is undoubtedly a very tidy and organised set up which would greatly compliment the main house. OFFERS INVITED IN THE REGION OF 55,000.
