FINE EXMOOR VIEWS

Situation And Amenities - In a glorious, timeless and tranquil location on the Western edge of the Exmoor National Park, set in its own ground, enjoying complete seclusion and privacy. Furze Hill is a hamlet of just 8 scattered properties where it is possible to ride or walk directly on the moors accessed nearby. We understand that the property and surrounding area is a haven for birds and wildlife. The nearest shop, at Barbrook, is a 2¼ miles which includes a petrol station. The property is about 5 miles inland from Lynton and Lynmouth where the moor meets the dramatic North Devon Coast. These twin villages offer good local shopping facilities, restaurants and other amenities. The larger towns of Barnstaple and Minehead, are both about 35 minutes travelling distance, and provide a much wider range of facilities including the District Hospital at Barnstaple. Junction 27 of the M5 Motorway and Tiverton Parkway station (London Paddington in just over 2 hours) are about an hours drive. The surfing beaches of Croyde, Woolacombe and Saunton Sands (also with popular championship golf course) are about 45 minutes. Both Exeter and Bristol International airports are within reasonable travelling distance.

Description - Durcombe Water presents part colour wash render and part slate hung elevations, beneath a slate roof, with double glazed windows. The property is possibly of 1920's origin but has been remodelled over subsequent years. The accommodation is versatile and incorporates a self-contained annexe (which at one time intercommunicated with the main house and could do so again), suitable for relatives, guests or paying guests. Externally there is an attached garage and workshop, a substantial modern barn incorporating 8 stables and half manege, as well as other out buildings. The property therefore has an equestrian bias, however for those interested in gardening the gardens at Durcombe Water have been landscaped and arranged as series of external 'rooms' created by the existing vendors over the last 18 years or so, and at one time opened under the National Gardens Scheme. For those intimidated by the prospect these could easily revert to pasture instead. The vendors may consider selling the property without the barn and less land, subject to negotiation. There is something for everyone at Durcombe Water, this is a special place and an inspection is certainly recommended. The layout of accommodation with approximate dimensions is more clearly identified upon the accompanying floorplans but comprises:
