Brock Hill House is a magnificent period residence
which is thought to date back to the 18th Century.
The house has a fine Georgian façade, is set within its own grounds of approximately 4.15 acres and adjoins National Trust farmland. The accommodation has been extensively improved by the current owners, including the construction of an entirely new roof, in keeping with the original Georgian architectural style. The property has retained a wealth of original features including beautiful high ceilings with ornate cornices, a grand staircase in the reception hall, marble fireplaces and shuttered sash windows. From many of the rooms, particularly the first floor
bedrooms, are unrivalled views of the grounds
and surrounding farmland. The accommodation
is arranged over three levels, with three reception
rooms, six bedrooms (four ensuite), family
bathroom, superb kitchen/breakfast room with Aga, utility/boot room and a cellar which spans almost the entire area of the house from below. The property is attached at the rear.

Brock Hill House is situated within its own
beautiful grounds, adjoining National Trust
Farmland in the popular village of Broadclyst.
Broadclyst Village is partially within the Killerton
Estate and a number of properties within the
village are in the ownership of the National Trust.
Brock Hill House has the distinct advantage of
neither being Listed nor leasehold.

The village has a fine parish church, a primary
school, Clyst Vale Community College,
offering secondary and further education, a
Post Office/general stores, a restaurant and
two inns. Broadclyst is in a most accessible
location, being approximately 2 miles from
the M5 motorway and Exeter Airport, making
it popular with those who would like to enjoy
a rural lifestyle but are keen to remain within
a striking distance of transport links to Exeter
and London.

Exeter, approximately 5 miles away, offers a
wide choice of cultural activities with the theatre,
the museum, arts centre and a wealth of good
shopping and restaurants, including John
Lewis and a Waitrose supermarket. Many good
primary and secondary schools can be found in
Exeter, whilst Exeter University is recognised as
one of the best in the country.

Road: Broadclyst is situated in an extremely advantageous position within easy access of the M5 motorway. The M5 provides a motorway link to the Midlands and north of England and connects with the M4 north of Bristol to provide motorway access to London.
Rail: Exeter St David’s railway station provides
regular intercity services to London (Paddington)
and via Salisbury to London (Waterloo).
Airport: Exeter International Airport provides flights to international destinations and to a number of cities within the British Isles, including
two flights a day to London City Airport.

Racing: At Exeter, Newton Abbot and Taunton.
Fishing: On the Exe, Mole, Taw and along the South Devon coastline.
Riding and walking: In the surrounding countryside and within the Dartmoor and Exmoor National Parks.
Sailing, bathing and water sports: Along the Exe Estuary and the South Devon coastline.
Golf: At Newton St Cyres and at Crediton, Exeter, Tiverton and Woodbury Park.

Brock Hill House is set within its own beautiful
gardens which mostly adjoin National Trust farmland. The driveway to the house is lined with
majestic trees and leads to the private pillared
entrance gates to the forecourt area at the front
of the house, which provides ample parking for
numerous vehicles. Beyond the forecourt is a well
maintained lawned garden with a lake, surrounded
by shrubs, bamboos and mature trees. Beside the
lake, a path leads through a wooded area to a large outside store.

There is a further fenced, lawned garden with
a patio, greenhouse and mature monkey tree,
accessed via the two glass double doors in the
garden room. Adjacent to the house there is a
double garage with twin electric doors and a timber stable, hay store and tack room.
