Dunchideock

Originally constructed as the Head Gardener's house for the large Haldon House Mansion nearby, which was further extended and adapted in the 1960s and again in the 1990s. Haldon Gardens provides spacious family accommodation which is arranged over three floors and with all the principal rooms enjoying views across the delightful and extensive gardens. The accommodation currently delivers flexible living throughout and also provides an excellent opportunity to be refreshed and updated to the buyers own taste, to become an even more outstanding property.

Haldon Gardens is approached by its own sweeping driveway and stands in approximately 6 acres of beautiful and secluded parkland gardens and grounds tucked away in the lee of the Haldon Hills beneath the striking Haldon Belvedere Tower. The gardens offer huge scope for the gardening enthusiast and are extensively stocked with a wide range of established trees, plants and shrubs.

Other notable features include a secluded swimming pool, terrace, ice house, a range of additional outbuildings and a further 6 acres (approximately) of grazing land divided into three fields/paddocks, which adjoins the property itself.

Dunchideock is less than 6 miles from the centre of Exeter and provides good access to the A38 dual carriageway linking Plymouth with Exeter and the M5. Exeter airport is 12 away.
