Strete Ralegh is a small rural hamlet in an accessible location, close to the village of Whimple and also within a short drive of both the A30 dual carriageway to Exeter/Honiton and also the old A30 giving quick access to Exeter, the M5 and beyond.
This is a delightful, light and spacious detached barn conversion of style and quality, beautifully presented, full of character yet practical for family living.
On the first floor are five bedrooms, two with en-suite shower rooms as well as a family bathroom.
On the ground floor is a hall, lounge, dining room, cloakroom, utility, kitchen/breakfast room, drawing room and superb garden room; all served by timber double glazed windows and oil fired central heating.
A lovely mellow brick and roman tiled roof make this a handsome house of character set nicely within mature, well stocked colourful and secluded gardens of just under half an acre. The property faces south, has ample parking and turning space in front of the detached double garage. This has a useful storage room over, suitable for a variety of uses. The grounds adjoin farmland to the rear and enjoy views over the nearby Strete Ralegh House Estate.
This house must be viewed to appreciate the attractive setting within this rural but highly accessible part of East Devon. THE ACCOMMODATION
