Clapham, Near Exeter

A timber-built ‘Colt’ house which was originally built in the 1930s. It occupies a lovely plot of land in the beautiful Kenn Valley, tucked away off a private road, in a small rural hamlet just 5 miles to the south of Exeter City Centre. From here there are several routes providing good access to the city as well as  junctions to the A38 ( leading to the M5) within 2 miles and a junction to the A30 within 5 miles. The Haldon Forest Country Park, which offers a wide range of leisure facilities, is only a mile away. There are delightful countryside walks from the doorstep. 

 

The particularly light and airy accommodation benefits from oil-fired central heating and double glazing to the windows, all of which enjoy attractive views over the gardens.  There is a most attractive and very effective woodburner in the main living room.  The versatile layout includes a distinct study area which could be subdivided to create a third bedroom if required.  The large conservatory also offers tremendous scope should any remodelling of the existing arrangement be envisaged. 

 

The gardens are delightful, offering a host of established trees, plants and shrubs, including three ornamental ponds, and are a haven for wildlife.  There are secluded sitting areas and a productive fruit and vegetable garden. They back onto woodland through which runs the River Kenn.  A private drive gives access to the excellent detached double garage (open-fronted) with its adjoining well-equipped workshop.  There is also an additional large outbuilding, ideal for a variety of potential uses.
