The accommodation has been extensively improved by the current owners with a complete new roof, and extended to provide an additional suite of rooms at second floor level. Original features include high ceilings with ornate cornices, a beautiful staircase in the reception hall, marble fireplaces, and shuttered sash windows enjoying fine views across the grounds and farmland. The extensive versatile accommodation is arranged over three levels and extends to approximately 4,790sq ft with 3 reception rooms, 6 bedrooms, 4 en-suites, family bathroom, superb kitchen/breakfast room with Aga, useful utility/boot room and cellar. The property is also being sold with no onward chain.


Brock Hill house occupies an enviable position with a grand tree-lined driveway approach. This imposing residence is set adjoining National Trust farmland on the fringes of this popular village. The setting is both “tucked away” and yet offers great convenience being just over 6-miles away from the centre of the Cathedral city and county town of Exeter, which offers good private and public schools, a red brick university, excellent restaurants and good shopping in Princesshay, as well as a mainline railway station offering a link to London Paddington in just over 2 hours. Junctions to major roads are also within easy reach. Much of the popular village itself is owned by the National Trust, giving an interesting and attractive vernacular. The village also offers a good range of local facilities to include a post office/village store, two public houses, a restaurant, a Church and a sports centre, along with well-regarded primary and secondary schools.
