Outside - A pair of timber gates open onto a granite shingle drive which sweeps down to the front of the house where there is a large concrete hardstanding providing ample parking and turning. Circular stone feature housing borehole. As you approach the property on the left hand side, there is a lovely orchard/woodland garden with a large open central grass area ringed by mature trees, with a small stream trickling along one side. Dividing this very pleasant area from the large formal lawned garden, with well stocked "cottage style" flower beds, is a grassy bank topped with some magnificent beech trees. Further stream side lawn with ALUMINIUM FRAMED GREENHOUSE with vines and strawberries. Fruit cage. 4 raised beds with a very pleasant spot to sit and enjoy the aspect over the River Torridge Valley. The rear garden is a complete delight with a large patio/terrace, and pretty ornamental pond with yellow iris. From the terrace, steps rise up to the lawn which is dotted with well stocked beds and mature trees. Another very pleasant covered seating area looks back at the house. From the end of the lawn, 2 paths meander through woodland forming a great nature habitat and lead down to the picturesque tree lined pond complete with island. It extends to approximately 0.25 acres. Again, benches are strategically placed around the pond to enjoy the outlook. Within a few steps of the pond is another large open grassy area where careful "coppicing" has encouraged a "parkland" feel. From here, a footbridge with stile gives access to the fishing rights. The River Torridge, with its very pretty single arched stone bridge, adjoins this patch.

Inserted Room - Interestingly, as indicated on the Land Registry plan within these details, there is a further area of land included with the property comprising a strip of roadside verge/woodland with hazel, alder, and willow. This continues along the road and then runs along the River Torridge for about 100 yards. Just opposite the entrance gates, on the other side of the road, is another very small parcel of land with some particularly fine beech and ash trees. The grounds and gardens extend to about 3 acres and comprises a wonderful mixture of formal gardens, woodland, and open grassy areas with a most attractive pond completing the picture.

The Fishing - A truly unique feature of the Gidcott Mill is that it includes about 1 mile of fishing (right hand bank) on the River Torridge. The river in this locality runs through a totally unspoilt valley and provides a wonderful opportunity to fly fish for wild brown trout in their native environment in this tranquil and nature rich landscape. The river meanders and twists offering a good combination of deeper pools linked by "runs and stickles". For discerning fly fisherman this is a truly exceptional opportunity. An interesting fishing archive from around the 1990's will be included with the sale.

Nicely positioned to one side of the house is a:

Detached Traditional Former Barn/Shippon - This period barn in time gone by was used for livestock but now forms a very useful storage outbuilding. It is partly divided into 2 being some 30'0 x 14'0 (9.14m x 4.27m) with light and power connected, plus 22'0 x 13'6 (6.71m x 4.11m). 5 doors to front. Subject to planning, this offers undoubted potential to convert.

Services - Mains electricity. Borehole water. Private drainage.

Council Band - Band 'G' (please note this council band may be subject to reassessment).

Epc Rating - Rating E.
