** BEST & FINAL OFFERS WEDNESDAY 22ND JANUARY 12.00PM (ask for details) ** Sympathetically Restored & Renovated! Incredibly impressive Grade II Listed detached former Rectory, perfect for large/dual family living, a guest house or nursing home, with flexible six bedroom & five reception room accommodation, all set in 1.87 acres of gardens & grounds including a small paddock and stables.

The Old Rectory is a wonderful family home that has been lovingly restored & renovated by the current owners over the last 5 years, retaining character features while creating convenient living for the next owner.

The Grade II Listing states “17th century or earlier origins” and refers to the wonderful sash windows & the turning oak staircase.
situation.

Lying adjacent to the 13th century Church of St Mary, with adjoining fields offering wonderful rural views to the south & east and just 0.5 miles from the village centre, the property has an individual & convenient location. The A30 is out of ear shot but is found just 2 miles away, with Exeter lying just 7 miles to the east.

The extensive yet useable accommodation extends to some 4,000sqft / 375sqm; it has great flexibility with three entrances & two staircases and really has to be seen to be fully appreciated.

Downstairs – The pillared porch covers the large 6 panel front door which opens onto the entrance hall with an oak turning staircase & exposed floorboards. This serves the dual-aspect living room & separate dining room, both featuring high ceilings, wood-burning stoves & sash windows. The farmhouse style kitchen breakfast room has hand crafted units with granite worktops, an electric AGA, flagstone flooring, double Belfast sink, dishwasher & amazing cross-work exposed ceiling beams. A 2nd sitting room lies beyond the kitchen, with the utility room & shower room adjoining, plus a 3rd reception room with its own rear entrance. This rear portion of the house would make a perfect ground floor annexe, or a 2 bedroom self-contained unit with the 2nd staircase giving access to an upstairs bedroom (5) with en-suite – with very little needed to adapt what is already in place (of course, subject to permissions). 

Upstairs there are six bedrooms, five are large doubles and the sixth a single. There is scope to create two further en-suites to bedrooms 2 & 3 if required (stp). The master bedroom has a wonderful vaulted ceiling & a window seat while bedroom 2 is dual-aspect & captures the best of the views. Bedroom 5 has just been refurbished & offers a walk-in wardrobe & a brand new en-suite. The family bathroom is impressive with a free-standing four clawed ‘double ended slipper bath’ & a separate double shower. 

The house has been finished to a high standard throughout, it benefits from LPG central heating throughout and all windows have been restored or replaced.

Please see the floorplan for room sizes.

The property is set in gardens and grounds that extend to 1.87 acres, including a small paddock. Most of the gardens face south and enjoy the lovely country views over adjoining rolling Devon farmland. 

The house and grounds are largely secluded and it is approached over a private driveway providing ample parking for 8-10 vehicles. There are also two modern stables and an adjoining double doored barn.

TEDBURN ST MARY is a village located a short drive from Exeter down the A30 (7 miles), and 5 miles across country from Crediton – through winding lanes. Its backdrop is that of high slopes, rounded hillforms and narrowing valleys. For everyday necessities there is a traditional village shop and for the kids a wonderful little primary school. If boredom ever strikes Tedburn presents a wide array of things to get stuck into, including: a drama group and a football club. Need to practice for the Ryder Cup? Or just unwind – ‘Fingle Glen Golf Hotel’ is nearby with an 18-hole golf course and luxurious accommodation. For some dramatic walks, ‘Fingle Bridge’ is only 6 (.2) miles away. Here the Teign River splashes and whirls its way over mossy boulders, through the middle of a precipitous, wooded gulley on the fringes of Dartmoor. Think: ‘The Lord of the Rings’, much of Dartmoor has been inspirational in the approach to ‘Middle Earth’ by the famous “Lotr” concept artist, Alan Lee.
