Herons Bank is a substantial detached country house superbly located in a secluded setting about half a mile from the town of Cullompton, surrounded by rolling farmland and enjoying magnificent country views (especially from the master bedroom balcony). The house is completely encompassed by its own virtually level grounds with formal gardens and paddocks which in all are believed to extend to about 22 acres.

The property was built in about 2008 to the extremely high specification of the present owner who has spared no expense in its construction. It offers incredibly spacious 4 bedroomed accommodation superbly designed by a local architect with a real focus on luxury family living and entertaining. There is a large reception hall which makes a lovely entrance and sets the house off superbly. The fully fitted kitchen is brimming with built-in Neff appliances (including a coffee maker, dishwasher, hob, deep fryer, 2 ovens, microwave, warming drawers, a Zip instant boiling water tap, etc) and has polished natural granite worktops incorporating a large breakfast bar. The living spaces are all connected by twin timber framed glazed doors which can all be opened up to provide a wonderfully sociable open flowing space – perfect for families and parties! In addition to this, the garden room doors can be folded and stacked back which provides a lovely seamless transition into the garden.

The property is packed with technology and renewable energy features, some of which include:

• Full HD TV streaming throughout the house

• CAT 5 network points in majority of rooms

• Ground source heat pump with underfloor heating

• Programmable lighting via wall pads

• Security system & fire alarm

• Audio feed to living room with in-ceiling speakers

• Electric gates with live video feed (can be routed to TV’s throughout the house) 

• Automatic lighting in many of the rooms 

• Solid concrete floors throughout (no squeaking floorboards) 

• 3 phase electricity supply (also to the large outbuilding) 

• Mechanical Heat Recovery Ventilation system 

• Domestic hot water loop for instant hot water 

• Rainwater harvesting for flushing of WC’s etc 

The leisure area is stunning, and has full height vaulted ceilings, exposed roof trusses and numerous roof windows. There are full width glazed doors which fold and stack opening directly onto the sun terrace outside. There is a magnificent below ground heated swimming pool, hot tub/spa, changing rooms with 2 cubicles and showering / wc areas. To the rear of this building is the pool plant room which houses a Heatstar environmental control system (providing very effective dehumidification, heat recovery and complete heating of air and pool water). 

The gardens and grounds are believed to extend to about 22 acres in all, with large formal lawned grounds sweeping around the property. There is a long, wide tarmac private drive (only serving Herons Bank), which leads via twin electric gates into a very attractive circular brick paved off parking area, and a large double garage with electric door. 

Beyond the house a wide lane leads to a huge purpose built detached modern outbuilding (of steel frame construction) to about 9,000 square feet (with 3 phase electricity laid on) – the perfect man cave for tinkering with cars etc – or it has the potential to convert into stables/indoor arena etc. The building has a wide and tall steel roller door providing ample height to accommodate high sided vehicles into the building. On the far boundary of the land is a substantial range of old cob/block barns.

CULLOMPTON is lovely Mid Devon town and parish about 13 miles north-north-east of Exeter, lying on the River Culm. The centre of the town has a wide variety of shops and services, plus there is a large Tesco superstore, and 18 hole golf course at Padbrook Park. A large proportion of town's inhabitants are commuters but there is still some local manufacturing, including flour and paper mills. It has a monthly farmers' market held on the second Saturday of every month which is the oldest event of its kind in the South West. It is home to two grade I listed buildings: the fifteenth-century St Andrew's parish church and the seventeenth-century house known as The Walronds. 

The town is located in the M5 corridor, and Herons Bank is extremely well positioned for fast and easy access to other parts of the country without having miles of country lanes to navigate!
