The Cathedral city of Exeter is approximately 16 miles distant and has all the amenities associated with a major regional centre, including an airport with national and international flights.
This area of Devon is well known for its beautiful countryside and rural pursuits. Riding and walking are on the doorstep and Exmoor National Park is approximately 14 miles to the north. Beach access is within an easy driving distance, along the South and North Devon coastlines.


Penmead is an attractive detached house built around the turn of the century with many period features. It has a lovely location on the south west hills above Tiverton, with commanding views over countryside and parts of the town.
The current owners have been in residence for 20 years and have made many improvements during this time, modernising the property. However, there is scope for a new owner to continue to improve and modernise.
The house has great reception space, including a drawing room, dining room and sitting room. All benefit from large, double hung, sash windows making the rooms particularly light. There is a bay window in the dining room and a box window in the drawing room.
There are 7 period fireplaces throughout the house, some of which are extremely ornate, with marble surrounds, slate hearths and cast iron grates. In the drawing room there is a wood-burner.
There is a wide entrance hall, including a dogleg staircase, with its original turned newel post and balustrade, on the half-landing there is a very tall sash window allowing light to flood in.
The kitchen/breakfast room is very spacious with room for a large refectory table and living space. There is an extensive range of cupboards and drawers with work surface over, inset stainless steel sink with drainer and separate rinsing bowl. There is also an extensive range of wall cupboards with display shelving and separate glazed display unit. Set back into the fireplace is a light blue Rayburn Royal (oil-fired) supplying domestic hot water. From the kitchen you can approach the conservatory and utility room, which has its own back door and cloakroom.
On the first floor there are four spacious bedrooms, all with different and attractive views over the surrounding countryside. There is an en-suite shower room and a spacious family bathroom.

Gardens And Grounds

From the country road a gravel drive, bounded on each side by lawn and trees, leads down to a large turning and parking area. Surrounding the property are lovely gardens. To the side and rear of the house are extensive lawns, including attractive trees and beds with shrubs and flowering plants.
At the rear of the house is a large patio, perfect for outside dining and enjoying the views. Below the garden is a chicken shed and run.
Adjacent to the drive is the 'putting green' and also a very extensive vegetable garden with polytunnel and greenhouse. If more garden is required, this area could be utilised.
Attached to the side of the house are some useful brick outbuildings, which are currently used for storage and kennels. It would be a simple process to convert these buildings, perhaps to further accommodation such as an office or games room, subject to gaining the necessary consents. Beyond these buildings is another range of outbuildings, including garaging, former stables, workshop and stores.

The Paddock

This is approached from the bottom of the garden or from a separate lane via the public highway. It is gently sloping, ideal for livestock or horses and is fenced, it extends to about 2.5 acres. The property is also available without the paddock.


Mains water, electricity and gas. Private drainage. Gas fired boilers supplying central heating and hot water.


If you are approaching from the M5 along the North Devon Link Road, take the 2nd exit for Tiverton.
From Tiverton, follow the signs to Witheridge and the B3137. On Rackenford Road take the 2nd turn left continuing on the B3137 onto Long Drag and proceed out of Tiverton. Continue up the hill and through a right hand bend, past the cottages and then a left hand bend, and after the Lodge on the left hand side take the next turning left. Proceed along this lane and within a short distance, at the crossroads, turn left and proceed down the hill. Penmead can be found within about mile and is the first property on the right hand side.
