SITUATION

Wiscombe Grange enjoys a picturesque elevated situation amidst lightly wooded and open rolling countryside within the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Set in an accessible position between the market town of Honiton to the north and the regency, coastal town of Sidmouth to the south, the property benefits from direct access on to a bridleway leading to a great network of paths down towards the coast.

 

Located on the edge of the parish of Southleigh and just a few miles from the popular village of Sidbury this good community has a range of local shops and services including a pub, village shop, butchers, primary school and church. The Jurassic coast, England's first World Heritage site, is accessible at nearby Beer, Branscombe, Sidmouth and Lyme Regis.

DESCRIPTION

Built in the early 1970's this substantial country house has a striking appearance with two large gables, mullion windows and drip moulds on the front elevation. Set down a private drive with a glorious outlook over its own land and distant views across the Jurassic Coast during the winter.

 

The light and airy accommodation has been improved to a high standard over the years. On the ground floor there is a lovely kitchen/ breakfast room with well-fitted with a range of units, integrated dishwasher and microwave with granite worktops, electric 5-oven Aga and beautiful oak flooring. A further dining room adjoins the kitchen providing a more formal entertaining space and fabulous views. The sizable, yet cosy living room has an 'L' shape arrangement and a wood burning stove on a red brick hearth.

The generous utility room runs behind the triple garage and has an external door.

Upstairs there are five double bedrooms, the master with en suite, and a family bathroom.

This property has two stair cases and lends itself well to converting the garage, utility and above bedroom into a separate annexe, subject to the necessary consents.

OUTSIDE

Set down a private drive over a cattle grid from the road, there are two large areas of parking, beside the house and stables. Surrounding the house, sweeping well kept lawns are interspersed with attractive trees and shrubs creating the start of a parkland feel.

The near level land is split into various convenient sized paddocks with post and rail fencing, with most being seen from the house.
