Cheriton is a small hamlet a short distance from the village of Payhembury with a pub, church, primary school and community shop. The local vicinity is quiet and unspoilt, with gentle hills and valleys, creating a beautiful rural setting. The larger nearby village of Feniton also has a station on the Waterloo line.

Honiton to the south east, offers a good range of amenities with its selection of independent shops and twice weekly market. The Cathedral City of Exeter lies to the West with a comprehensive array of retail and leisure facilities. The M5 is easily accessible at J28 (Cullompton), providing great links to Cornwall to the south and Bristol and London to the north and east. There are regular rail services to London Paddington from Tiverton Parkway and Exeter International Airport provides a number of domestic and international flights.


Completed to a high standard in 2007, this wonderful family home has the character and charm of an older house, yet the conveniences and efficiency of modern day living, including timber double glazed windows, under-floor heating to the ground floor, engineered oak floors, exposed timbers and oak batten plank doors.

The spacious accommodation has been cleverly designed to maximise the natural light. A covered entrance porch leads to the entrance hall giving access to each of the ground floor rooms. The sitting room is triple aspect focused around a feature fireplace with wood burning stove and a large bay window with double doors to the garden.

To the other side of the house is the impressive farmhouse style kitchen with double doors opening through to the dining room making the perfect space for family living. The superb kitchen is centered around an oil-fired Aga with shaker style units providing plenty of storage and fitted dishwasher under granite work surfaces, along with double Belfast sink and oven. The dining room includes a bay window with double doors opening to the garden. On the ground floor there is also a study, utility room and large WC.

On the first floor there are four double bedrooms, including the triple aspect principal suite with a dressing area and large shower room and an en suite guest bedroom. There is also a family bathroom with free standing bath. The large loft has been boarded and plastered with fitted carpets, windows and central heating creating an opportunity for further accommodation, subject to the necessary consents.


Approached through a timber five-bar gate the sweeping gravel drive leads to the parking area and large DOUBLE GARAGE with a COVERED CAR PORT to the front and a STORAGE LOFT over. The lawns to the front are laid to lawn with various specimen trees.

A wall gives seclusion to the side and rear gardens, where raised beds provide useful vegetable plots. The rear gardens are laid to lawn with numerous trees and shrubs and herbaceous borders creating a great starting point to the vista of rolling countryside beyond.
