Full description

**A glorious Four bedroom property situated within easy reach of village shops, schools and amenities**

This house is like a Tardis, from the front it appears small but having crossed the Courtyard garden and entered the viewer finds a superb living room with high ceilings and large windows which make it light and airy. The window to the front overlooks the courtyard garden and countryside beyond, the rear window looks out onto the terraced back garden.
The rear garden has two lawned areas surrounded by flower beds and three terraces with adjoining steps leading down to the house.
The four bedrooms are all large with good natural light. The upper bedroom is presently used as a study/workroom but since it has its own cloakroom with wash-hand basin and loo it could easily be used as bedroom four.

Internal viewing is a must in order to fully appreciate the size and splendour of the beautiful property.

The Courtyard - A Grade II listed building - Winkleigh Court was built circa 1740 in the grounds of the mediaeval Winkleigh Castle, the latter, now a picturesque ruin surrounded by trees, was reputedly built by William the Conqueror for his wife Mathilda. A wing was added to The Court in about 1880 and the property was the village Manor house until shortly before WW2. During the war it became the Officers' Mess for Winkleigh RAF base which was situated about three quarters of a mile away on the outskirts of the village. Post war it was converted into a nursing home which it remained for some years but in the 1990s this closed and the house was then bought and converted into three separate freehold dwellings, each with it own private gardens. The result of the conversion is that while the house has all the convenience of a modern home it retains the high-ceilings and period features of an historic building.
