SITUATION

Set in an idyllic location and lying within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Cedar Court enjoys a beautifully secluded and private position in this hidden East Devon valley, within the parish of Widworthy. The nearby village of Wilmington has a public house and lies along the A35 between the market towns of Honiton and Axminster. Both towns benefit from thriving communities and a wide range of amenities including schooling and stations on the Exeter to London Waterloo line.

 

Exeter is accessed along the A30 dual carriageway with an international airport providing a number of domestic and international flights and access to junction 30 of the M5. The Jurassic Coast at Seaton is an easy drive away.

DESCRIPTION

Cedar Court is an attractive family home surrounded by its own land extending to over 7.3 acres with outbuildings at the head of the valley with superb views over the surrounding countryside. The property has been in the same ownership for over 40 years and has been maintained and modernised during this time, however, there is potential for a new owner to add their own mark.

 

As illustrated on the floorplan, the spacious accommodation has been designed to take advantage of the views. The impressive galleried reception hall leads to the dual aspect sitting room with wood burning stove and an archway opening to the dining room. The kitchen comprises an extensive range of units, including a central island, and integrated appliances. The principal suite benefits from fitted wardrobes and an en suite with a central circular bath. The service rooms include a cloakroom and utility room providing additional units, plumbing and space for laundry appliances and door to garage with garden room beyond.

 

On the first floor is the gallery landing providing access to the accommodation. The second bedroom suite includes a dressing room and en suite bathroom, although recently used as a further reception room and study it was originally designed to be separate accommodation. There are a further three bedrooms, one of which is triple aspect with reinforced floors that could be used as a games room. The shower room has direct access from the landing and bedroom 3.
