Located in the small North Devon village of Riddlecombe, Chichesters represents an excellent opportunity to acquire a Devon longhouse set in gardens and land of approximately 2 acres. The property also INCLUDES A SEPARATE DETACHED BARN CONVERSION making it ideal as a holiday let or to provide a home for more independent relatives.
The properties are arranged in order to achieve privacy and to make the most of the stunning countryside views. On a clear day, Dartmoor can be seen in the distance beyond the immediate, rolling Devon fields.
Chichesters is believed to date back to the Eighteenth Century-indeed a hand-carved slate-stone on the front of the house suggests 1744 as a possible date. The house is full of the period charm and charisma expected in a property of this age but it still offers the modern comforts that today's purchasers expect.
The wide front door opens into the dining hall-an impressive room with a substantial beam and deep-cilled window.
A latched door (similar to all the doors in the property) leads through to the sitting room. Here we find the impressive double staircase that leads up to the first floor and a large, stone inglenook fireplace with bread oven and housing a Clearview wood burner.
The lounge leads off from the sitting room and is a welcoming, comfortable space, again, with inglenook and wood burner.
The kitchen is a light and airy room with ample room for a table and chairs. The white units have wooden worktops with an inset butler sink, integrated dishwasher and fridge and range-style cooker. There is space for a free-standing fridge/freezer. A useful separate, utility room provides space for washing machine and houses the oil fired boiler with adjacent cloakroom.
To the first floor, there are three spacious double bedrooms, each with en-suite facilities. The largest, the master bedroom has a vaulted ceiling, with full en-suite bathroom incorporating a four piece suite. The large landing area has been utilised to create a spacious study area.
Outside, the brick-paved patio area leads into the garden, laid mainly to lawn but with flower and shrub beds providing seasonal colour. The lawns also include an orchard and wild flower meadow which stretch to the far boundary. This could be separated in order to create a paddock or large vegetable plot. There are a series of outbuildings including a timber stable block (with tackroom and two boxes), a workshop and logstore. Immediately to the front of the house connected to the porch is a stone barn providing additional storage. The substantial parking area is laid with granite cobble sets and a five-bar gate enables the properties to be secured from the lane.
This attractive barn conversion enjoys the full benefit of the lovely views and provides comfortable, modern accommodation.
The spacious entrance hall with oak flooring leads into the kitchen/breakfast room. Fitted with a range of base units and integral dishwasher, large range-style cooker and washing machine and ample room for a table and chairs. The property benefits from a newly fitted Worcester bosch combi boiler. In addition, a formal dining room is found overlooking the gardens and countryside beyond.
The lounge enjoys the full benefit of the views and sunny aspect and has a wood burner to supplement the oil-fired central heating on those chilly winter's evenings!
The double glazed conservatory with its tiled floor and French doors opening into the garden, is a useful and attractive addition to the property.
To the first floor, there are two double bedrooms and a third smaller bedroom, currently being used as a dressing room. The modern shower-room has a white suite and complimentary tiling. In addition, there is a ground floor cloakroom.
Agents note: A signposted public footpath runs through the driveway and then follows the boundary line to adjacent fields. The footpath is contained within a bank and hedge and does not encroach upon the privacy in the rear gardens.
