Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Drive along the private lane and park up, taking a moment to enjoy all the space this wonderful home has to offer, including the all outlying eighteen-acre swathe of greenery that belongs to Woodhayne Farm. Step beyond the porch and into the carpeted entrance hall, broad and brimming with doors that lead off to the various entertaining spaces at Woodhayne.

Take a left into the sitting room, where the stone fireplace with wood burning stove takes pride at being the centre of attention, especially on a cold wet day. Beyond the window, vistas of the grounds and countryside capture your imagination. Where better to relax for an evening with a glass of wine or with friends

A further sitting room can be found on the opposite side of the hall. From here a door leads through to a surprising annex. Ideal as a hobby room, office or even quiet bedroom suite for a dependent relative. This annex includes its own kitchen, and en-suite shower room to the bedroom. All with its own private entrance to the rear, this could provide a spot of income too

At the head of the hallway, a variety of doors head off in different directions. For now we'll head to the cloakroom, one that only most would dream of. This is one of a kind, with one wall of cupboards providing ample storage for shoes, boots and whatever else you would like to hide away from prying eyes. In a period home like this you may assume that the door in the hall leads into an under-stairs cupboard but you would be quite wrong. In fact it leads down into a deep underground cellar where you could store a wine collection or children could play make-believe Harry Potter games.

Sprinkle a little old school country flavour into your meal times, in the traditionally-styled farmhouse kitchen.




Continued...
Back up to the hallway and through another door a small inner hall leads you through to the heart of this home. Sprinkle a little old school country flavour into your meal times, in the traditionally-styled farmhouse kitchen. Fitted with cupboards and drawers aplenty, this comprehensive kitchen comes with a rather fitting large AGA. You'll never have to worry about cooking the Christmas dinner with the amount of oven space available. At one end of this impressive kitchen/dining room, the history of this house begins to unveil itself with a feature wall showing part of the structure where "Muffin the mule" currently takes pride of place. Next door, a fully stocked utility room houses space for a washing machine, tumble dryer and sink and has access to the rear courtyard.

Drift up the stairs to the first floor, where an array of comfy bedrooms are ready to provide soporific comfort.

To the front, the master bedroom looks out over the Devonshire countryside - simply glorious. A handy en-suite is tucked away in one corner and a bank of wardrobes offering plentiful hanging space. Next door, another bedroom or (or as currently used) a sizeable study. One further double bedroom sits neatly beside the last. Next comes the family bathroom with its own tub as a stand alone shower room can be found on the way to one of the rear bedrooms.

Neutral décor greets you in bedroom two, where calming wisteria curtains frame views over the surrounding grounds and rear main courtyard. Light, bright and cosy, this room is a spacious double. One bedroom remains and is again lavishly sized, with views towards the garden, pool and rural countryside. This would make an ideal hobby room for perhaps the keen sewer of the family. Finally up to the attic, with space in abundance to store pretty much everything, from suitcases to Christmas Decorations.

GROUNDS & OUTBUILDINGS
Set amidst roughly eighteen acres, Woodhayne Farm is ideal for those of an equestrian persuasion, with a wealth of stables, paddock and ménage. There are also a variety of stores, animal shed, cow sheds and a piggery barn, and what used to be a veterinarian office with kitchen facilities. With plentiful room for chickens amongst other pets this really could be 'the good life' you've been looking for. One further barn is currently laid out as a games room with a full sized snooker table and bar. With a bit of imagination, this could also be a venue to be hired out. Closer to the house are the gardens, with sweeping lawn and beautiful borders of roses. Not forgetting the heated outdoor pool to enjoy on a hot summers day, whilst nipping in to the orchard to enjoy fresh fruit pickings.
Out and about...
Combe raleigh sits on the southern edge of the Blackdown hills, an area of outstanding natural beauty.

There is a thriving community here which the current owners of Woodhayne Farm are widely part of. It is a short distance to the A30, and Honiton train station with its links to London and Exeter. You also have the delightful National Trust owned Coombe Wood on your doorstep, the perfect place for a 30-40 minute sheltered walk on a hot sunny day. Honiton may be famed for its antique shops and its historic lace industry, but it also has a fascinating array of local businesses, fine places to eat, even an award winning public art gallery. It is a wonderful place for children to grow up, with local primary and secondary schools rated as 'outstanding' and six acres of public woodland and parkland within a few minutes walk of the centre of town. A day at the beach is within easy reach, seek out the Jurassic coast and enjoy fish and chips and a wander around the seaside towns of Lyme Regis, Sidmouth or Beer. The infinitely stylish Deer Park Country House is also very close, set in 80 acres of unspoilt countryside.
