An individual five-bedroom detached residence with over half an acre on the edge of this popular village enjoying superb rural views

The Old Vicarage is situated in a quiet location on the southern edge of the sought-after village of Payhembury between the market town of Honiton and the City of Exeter. The property enjoys excellent accessibility and travel links being just 1 mile north of the village of Feniton, where there is a main line railway station to London Waterloo. The A30 dual carriageway (3 miles) links the market town of Honiton with Exeter where there are excellent communication links with main line rail, international airport and M5 at Junction 29 to the west and the A303/M3 and London to the east. Payhembury has a well regarded school, shop and village pub, all within easy walking distance and the village is now connected to high speed fibre broadband. Ottery St Mary, 4 miles to the south offers a range of local amenities with a magnificent church, small hospital, shops, library and the highly regarded Kings School. The coast at Sidmouth is nearby with a range of coastal pursuits and beaches and the area surrounding Payhembury offers a variety of footpaths, quiet country lanes and bridle paths from which to enjoy the delightful countryside.

The Old Vicarage, despite its name, is a 1960s architect designed and brick built house, extended in the 1990s to provide a comfortable family home. The property is approached via a private drive and is in an elevated position, surrounded on three sides by farmland with splendid views to the south and west from the house and grounds.

The accommodation is generous with comfortable reception rooms including a fitted kitchen/breakfast room leading to a conservatory and a spacious dining room, accessed from the entrance hall. There are 5 bedrooms on the first floor including a master bedroom with dressing area and en-suite bathroom, and a further 4 bedrooms and family bathroom. Most of the windows are double glazed and there is an oil fired central heating system.

A long oak tree and conifer lined tarmac drive gently slopes up from the village road between handsome stone pillars to a parking and turning area in front of the house and integral double garage. The gardens and grounds are laid mostly to lawn with a very gentle slope completely enclosed by fencing, conifer and thick laurel hedges. There are a variety of shrubs, plants and trees including attractive silver birch specimens. A patio on the south side adjoining the dining room has a superb view across farmland to the countryside beyond. To the rear of the house is a mature orchard with apple and cherry trees and oak and fir trees on the rear boundary. In all, the grounds at the Old Vicarage amount to 0.57 acres.

Payhembury is a true Devon village with a good community and excellent local amenities that include community run village shop, pub and highly regarded primary school. Payhembury is surrounded by open countryside but within easy travelling distance of Honiton (about 7 miles) and Exeter along the A30 (about 16 miles). The Waterloo train line runs through the nearby village of Feniton. The coast, Cullompton and M5 access are also within an easy drive. Payhembury stands within the King's School catchment area.
