Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This spectacularly located relatively modern country home enjoys an          exceptional rural location on the rural outskirts of Kentisbeare village.   The property is a registered holding with the present owners having run it as a horticultural nursery until recently.  The young orchards could also provide a ‘juicing’ business with the remaining field being suited to a variety of         agricultural/horticultural uses.  The bungalow has been extended by the   present owners with the addition of a large conservatory and utility area, whilst the kitchen and bathroom have both been remodelled.  The recently added double garage with room over is ideally suited to further enlargement of the accommodation if desired.  An early inspection of this enviably located country holding is strongly recommended.


Gloriously located about a quarter of a mile from the picturesque village of Kentisbeare with its thriving post office stores, Wyndham Arms, primary school and village hall.  Kentisbeare nestles at the foot of the Blackdown Hills, an area designated as being of           outstanding natural beauty.  A more extensive range of facilities is to be found in the nearby country town of Cullompton with its High Street shops, two supermarkets, doctors surgeries, library, sports centre and junction 28 of the M5 which facilitates rapid commuting south to the cathedral city of Exeter and north to the county town of Taunton.  The comparatively central mid Devon location places the picturesque national parks of Dartmoor and Exmoor together with the north and south Devon coastlines all within a modest car journey.
