Situated in the popular Mid Devon village of Whitnage, Tolcarne offers a fantastic opportunity to enjoy life in the country but with easy access to transport links and the nearby town of Tiverton. It is within the catchment for Uffculme Secondary School which is Ofsted rated as outstanding. The house sits in an elevated position, centrally within the village and enjoys far reaching views. It is set in approximately 3 acres and the house is believed to date back to the 1700's when it was a farm cottage and barn. Extended over the centuries, the property now offers spacious, well proportioned accommodation set in lovely gardens and with a paddock, and stable block with 3 stables, tack room and store. The large farmhouse kitchen has hand painted units and an oil fired Rayburn. The dining room has an inglenook fireplace with wood burner and French doors to the garden. The conservatory, also off this room, is an ideal place to sit and enjoy the outlook. The sitting room has an open fire and large window overlooking the garden. The property also benefits from a large utility room with plumbing for a washing machine, a butler sink and ample space for welly boots! There is a downstairs cloakroom off the hallway which also houses the under-stairs cupboard.
Upstairs there are 4 double bedrooms - the master bedroom with en-suite. The landing window takes in the lovely views over the paddock and neighbouring farmland.
Outside, the level garden wraps around 3 sides of the house and is full of mature shrubs and trees including a beautiful magnolia. There is a large area of lawn with summer house, borders of flowering plants and shrubs, and a vegetable patch. The driveway sweeps around the rear of the property to a parking area and the stable yard. There are 3 stables, a tack room and store room. The gently sloping paddock, accessed from this yard, has stock fencing and is bordered by farmland.
Whitnage is just a short distance from the larger village of Uplowman which has a primary school and public house, and on from there, Sampford Peverell and Halberton, both of which boast local amenities. There are some lovely walks from Tolcarne and the countryside around offers some lovely riding for anyone wishing to keep a horse or pony here.
