Near the market town of Honiton, close to the East Devon AONB, is this delightful large detached property, featuring a huge natural garden with an abundance of wildlife and boasting period features such as exposed beams, low ceilings, and wonderful timber furnishings. Benefiting from contemporary decor set within this older building, it is a perfect base for large groups, whether its a family gathering or a reunion with friends. Enter the property to find the large open-plan living space, where you will immediately spot the unique mezzanine balcony which houses a snug space to enjoy some quiet time, overlooking the rest of the room. Down below, the sitting area has enough soft furnishings for all, with a woodburning stove to light up on a crisp winter evening, while a beautiful fitted kitchen sits at the back of the room under the timber mezzanine, which has a good range of appliances for cooking up delicious meals. Gather around the dining table with glasses of wine while dinner cooks, and catch up on old times, or plan the activities for the week ahead in this amazing rural location. Discover five well-presented bedrooms resting across two floors, all of which are either set up 3 doubles, 1 twin and 1 single, so there should be an arrangement to accommodate most parties. Supporting the bedrooms is the sparkling bathroom, which features a large corner bath, perfect for enjoying a luxury soak after a day of exploring to soothe those aches and pains. From one of the bedrooms you can throw open the patio doors and step out into the stunning natural garden, home to mature trees, shrubs and amazing wildlife, a patio area with seating and wood fired pizza oven, so you can dine outside on a warm summer day for a special occasion. Explore the garden and wander over the uneven paths, delight in the hidden nooks and corners to reveal the wildlife. The property even hosts a summer breeding colony of Soprano Pipistrelle bats in the eaves of the barn; these beautiful protected creatures are absolutely harmless but can occasionally be heard moving around and chattering at dusk and dawn, giving the dwelling an extra unique touch. The house is a short walk away from the local pub with a large river frontage garden, and local farm shop and cafe, so head over there for a hearty breakfast or lunch to start your day right. Make sure to visit the award-winning Thelma Hulbert Gallery with a range of artwork and photograph displays from local and national artists, and be on the lookout for many events and workshops they host each year. You are just a few miles from the beautiful Jurassic Coast, where you can visit the lovely sandy beaches for family days out sunbathing, swimming or even surfing. The East Devon AONB is rich with county trails for walking and cycling opportunities, with a variety of wildlife in their natural habitat to observe, like rare colonies of beavers and otters.
