Major part of an imposing former Rectory in the heart of the old village.

SITUATION & DESCRIPTION

Feniton House is the major part of an imposing former Rectory, believed to date back to approximately 1600, offering graciously proportioned, Grade II Listed accommodation. There are many period and architectural features throughout the property, including fireplaces, deep skirting boards, architraves and complemented by impressive ceiling heights.

The property is tucked away up a private drive shared with just three other houses, in the centre of Feniton old village not far from the church and village hall. In the newer part of the village, about half a mile, there is a small supermarket, well regarded CofE primary school and mainline rail station on the London Waterloo line.

To the south is Ottery St. Mary where there is a good range of day to day shops, doctors surgery and renowned The Kings School, whilst Colyton Grammar, one of the top schools in the country is also local, both with bus pick-ups nearby. There are also a plethora of excellent private schools in Exeter and the local area. The A30 gives fast access to the market town of Honiton, to the east and Exeter to the west. The south coast at Sidmouth (about 10 miles) is easily reached by car.

ACCOMMODATION

Improved and enhanced for modern living by the current owners the accommodation is spacious and elegant. An impressive entrance provides access to all the ground floor rooms, and graceful staircase rising to the first floor.

The drawing room is a superb room; with beautifully hand carved oak panelling, which was carved by a previous Vicar's wife.

The sitting room with coved ceiling, a marble fireplace and French doors to the front garden is partly open plan to the kitchen creating a wonderful family space. The kitchen with large central island has slate, timber and quartz like worktops fitted with double Belfast sink, induction hob as well as integrated dishwasher.

On the first floor are 4 good size bedrooms, the master bedroom with dual aspect and steps down to an en-suite shower room. The shower room has a second door to the 4th bedroom (Jack and Jill) and then on to the landing. There is a family bathroom and a large store room.

OUTSIDE

The sweeping shared private drive leads to a turning circle with a small lawned island and access to the side garden, where there is a single garage with timber opening double doors, and greenhouse.

The large garden is laid mostly to lawn with many mature trees and shrubs including rhododendron. To the rear of the house is a small area of garden enclosed by a fence. There is a pedestrian gate to the drive and access to the garden and parking. The drive continues to a number of woodsheds and a secluded wild area.

In all the grounds extend to approximately 0.84 acres (0.34 ha) plus ownership of a rear drive.

LAPSED PLANNING

Granted in 2015, the now lapsed planning consent (Ref 15/1731//FUL) proposed the demolishing of the garage and replacement with 'outbuilding housing pavilion and ancillary family accommodation'.
