The southern flank of the Haldon Hills provides a sought after combination of accessibility and unspoiled natural beauty. The protected site faces south west, looking over the small town of Chudleigh, towards the edge of Dartmoor in the distance.
Waddon House is in the tiny hamlet of Waddon, which comprises a couple of other dwellings and is about 1½ miles from Chudleigh, which offers a range of shops and local amenities, including a primary school, Post Office, doctors’ and dentist surgeries and public library. It also benefits from quick access to Exeter to the north via the A38 and A380 dual carriageways and, to the south, the coast at Teignmouth, Shaldon and Torbay are all within a short drive.
Waddon House stands privately in mature, well stocked grounds, with a wonderful outlook towards Dartmoor. The solid, early 20th century house offers the style of accommodation that is commonly associated with this era. The reception rooms are spacious, with tall ceilings and are lit from wide windows bringing in plenty of light.
The floors on the ground floor include timber strips, with matching joinery on the staircase. Upstairs, a spacious landing on the first floor serves the bedrooms and a further staircase up to the second floor, where there are two further bedrooms and a bathroom, creating the opportunity for a semi independent flatlet.
The vendors have owned Waddon House since 1991 and the house could now benefit from some further updating. The house is approached through its exotic grounds along a tarmac drive to a circular carriage ring and plenty of parking. There is a substantial detached garage beside the parking areas.
The grounds around the house not only provide privacy and protection for the house, but also an exotic setting, with many unusual trees and shrubs. A network of paths meander around the grounds which include lawns, borders, a former quarry area and a distinctive miniature rock outcrop.
At the southern end of the grounds an orchard area borders a hard tennis court with adjoining summer house and smart timber framed greenhouse. In all, Waddon House provides a wonderful family home in an accessible yet rural setting.
