  • Bedrooms: 4
A stunning detached rural 4-bedroom home with a 1 bedroom annex set in just over four acres affording magnificent countryside views.

Triffords Barton is a period home of character with charming and elegant accommodation which is immaculately presented. This handsome property is traditionally built with flint-stone exterior elevations, under a mellow tiled roof and has the benefit of hardwood-effect UPVC double glazed windows and Doors. Triffords Barton has been the subject of much further improvement and upgrading by the present owners and now offers spacious and adaptable accommodation which benefits from the great attention to detail the current vendors have lavished upon it.

Worthy of particular mention is the 28' lounge, the hand made solid oak doors, mellow wood floor in the dining room and entrance hall and the large country kitchen with its slate floor and polished granite work surfaces. Heating throughout is by Daikin Air-Source Heat Pump and in addition a Wood Burning Stove is installed in the lounge and an Oil Fired AGA Range is located in the Kitchen.

The property also offers adaptable accommodation as, adjoining, is a separate one bedroom annexe which has been let (short term - currently vacant) and could also provide further integral accommodation to the House by simply creating one door. Also worthy of mention is the detached single storey garage building which incorporates a large double garage, Workshop/office, utility cloakroom, and small stable and has potential for other uses, subject of course to any necessary planning consents being obtained.

The Property is further enhanced with fitted Solar Panels and a Heat Pump and the benefits they bring AGENTS NOTE. Full information of lettings and solar panel income available from the agent on request.

Triffords Barton is situated in a rural position between the market towns of Honiton and Axminster. The property is set well back from the road in a sunny sheltered location amongst fields and enjoys attractive views. Triffords Barton is approached off a long drive (shared with two other properties) and stands in immaculately presented colourful and profusely stocked gardens with paddocks. In all, the property extends to approximately 4.3 acres and is bounded on the East side by the small Umborne Brook for approximately 60 meters.

The small village of Wilmington is about 1 mile distant and has a thatched Public House and small Hotel/Restaurant. The busy market town of Honiton is approximately 4.5 miles away and has a selection of shops, Cafes and Restaurants including a Tesco Food Store, leisure facilities and main line rail link to London(Waterloo). Exeter, the County Town, is some 20 miles distant with an excellent shopping centre, main line rail link to London (Paddington), International Airport and M5 access. The Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site at Lyme Bay is approximately 6.5 miles away.

The property has right of access over a long private drive that leads over the stream and sweeps up to the property, where there is a large gravelled parking area. Immediately to the front of the house, a 5-bar gate leads from the gravelled area to a tarmac area giving further space for parking. This in turn leads to the very private gardens which principally lie to the south of the property and are laid to areas of lawn, bordered by low stone walls and neatly kept flower and shrub beds. Further, there is a paved area for al fresco dining, Ornamental Fountains and steps to further areas of the extensive, well-stocked, gardens.

A gravelled walkway, interspersed with plants and shrubs, leads to a detached Summerhouse 18' x 23' which contains a large Jacuzzi/Plunge Pool. From the paved terrace by the house, wide steps lead down to a further area of garden with Duck Pond, Willow, Oak, Alder and young Horse Chestnut trees. This is bordered at the bottom by the small Umborne Brook.

The two Paddocks, in one of which lies a Field Shelter/Wood-store, lie primarily to the south east and south west of the property.

As well as the rental potential of the Annexe (either Short term or Holiday Lets) there are revenue streams from a FITs Solar Panel installation producing approximately £1500pa and a Heat Pump installation currently producing £750pa.
