Opportunity to buy a well-presented period property that has been a much-loved family home on the outskirts of the popular village of Chawleigh in the heart of Mid Devon.
Edgecot is a delightful south west facing 4 bedroom home that has come to the market for the first time in 35 years. Attached only by a garage to the house next door, it was built in the 1840s and has generous sized rooms and stunning far reaching views over the fields as far as Exmoor from the kitchen and master bedroom which is a great asset to this lovely home. The accommodation briefly comprises; an entrance hall, sitting room, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, utility room and cloakroom on the ground floor and four double bedrooms and two bathrooms on the second floor.
The house is Georgian in style and the main rooms lead from the hallway approached via the front door and a small path from the road. The sitting room faces south west and has a large fireplace with a Wood Warm wood burner. The dining room also faces south west and from here the kitchen breakfast room, with oil fired Rayburn, catches the morning sun and is fully fitted with a range of units, Belfast sink and ample storage space. Also, on the ground floor there is a downstairs cloakroom and utility room. The back door takes you round to the garden and parking area. Upstairs has a large landing, 4 double bedrooms, the master with en-suite bathroom, and a family shower room.
The level garden, mainly laid to lawn with some pretty flower borders with established shrubs and seasonal plants has the most stunning uninterrupted views over the fields and the hills beyond. There is a useful shed by the back door and a driveway with off road parking for 2 cars.
Chawleigh sits in the heart of the prettiest of Mid Devons rolling countryside and is midway between the two National Parks of Dartmoor and Exmoor. The village has a great community spirit and has a thriving church, pub and village shop and Post Office. Chulmleigh, a larger village, is approx. 2 miles away and here you can find a traditional butcher, baker, antique shop, restaurants and pubs. Here there is a good Primary and large Secondary School. Chawleigh is close to a number of popular independent schools. There is an excellent range of recreational facilities in the area including delightful walks, and a number of golf courses.
