27 Apr Fine 1920’s residence in 15 acres
The Newton Abbot branch of Rendells, the long-established firm of chartered surveyors, auctioneers, valuers, land and estate agents, is thrilled to offer for sale a substantial period home with an annex, stabling and outbuildings set in its own 15 acres of Devon countryside, just two and a half miles from Newton Abbot town centre and 14 miles from Exeter.
Witheridge House sits in a perfectly secluded rural setting with outstanding country views yet is within only a few minutes’ drive to local amenities and excellent road and rail connections.
The attractive house is approached from a private drive leading to a large parking area with a detached double garage, currently utilised as a games room – a great space for entertaining friends and family, which would equally make a great hobbies room/workshop, above which is a double bedroom with ensuite shower room, ideal for multigenerational living or as guest accommodation.
Inside, Witheridge House is capacious, light and airy with high ceilings and large windows. The entrance porch leads to a central hallway with WC and stairs. In the dual aspect sitting room is a large bay window and a wood burner providing a warm and inviting focal point. The large dining room leads through to the country style kitchen/breakfast room with a separate pantry, appliances, a large feature chimney breast and a breakfast bar that looks out towards the rolling countryside. In the fully functioning utility room is a back door to the garden.
Upstairs are the four bedrooms, the family bathroom and separate WC. The master has a feature bay window, bedrooms two and three are generously sized and inter connecting, and the fourth looks out over the land to the rear. In addition, there is a large loft space, which could become additional living space, subject to any relevant consents.
The enclosed walled garden has been well managed for many years with mature borders, lawn areas, an extensive vegetable garden and fruit trees providing a beautiful ever- changing, seasonal outside space.
There is a stable block with two stables and a fodder storage area, as well as an L-shaped, five-sectioned mono pitch agricultural building with solar panels. Each of these buildings is connected with mains water and an electrical supply.
All in all, the land extends to around 15 acres, including around 2.27 acres of woodland. The remaining land is level to gently sloping grassland pasture that has been used for hay making and grazing livestock, more recently sheep, and is well fenced with a water supply and separate gated access.
Charles Morgan, sales negotiator at Rendells in Newton Abbot, said: “The location and setting of Witheridge House is truly wonderful. To get a real feel for the property, which has served its current owners as their beloved family home since 1973, there is a virtual tour on our website, and to see the amazing setting and layout of the land, drone footage can be viewed here.”
