The Old Parsonage is a charming Georgian home, with generously proportioned light and airy rooms, three/four double bedrooms and surrounding large well established gardens, garage and off street parking in the sought after village of Huntsham.
The Old Parsonage is situated in the popular and sought after village of Huntsham, amidst woodland and the beautiful parkland of Huntsham Court. There is an active village community with many clubs and events based in the village hall, with a bar, pool, darts etc. and wonderful walks, via numerous byways, bridleways and footpaths. The Staplecross Inn is approximately 1.5 miles away. The village lies 7 miles north of the bustling Mid Devon town of Tiverton and 4 miles from the popular village of Bampton. Both centres provide an excellent selection of local amenities with Tiverton offering superb shopping and supermarkets including an M&S Food Hall. The M5, just 5 miles away, offers easy access to Exeter to the south and Bristol to the north, whilst the adjoining Tiverton Parkway railway station provides regular services to London Paddington in approx. 2 hours.
There are many highly regarded primary schools in the area including Halberton, Bampton and Bolham and the property is within the 10 mile discount radius of the renowned Blundell's School in Tiverton as well as being within the catchment area for Uffculme School.
The Old Parsonage is believed to originally date back to the Jacobean period circa 1625, but was damaged in a fire and rebuilt in 1740. Formerly a Parsonage for the church at Huntsham Court, this charming Georgian property was converted into two houses 25 years ago.
This is the larger two thirds of the property, comprising living room, second reception/dining room, kitchen with Rayburn, family bathroom and 3/4 large double bedrooms, one en suite. laid out over three floors. The first floor consists of the large master bedroom suite with triple aspect original sash windows and the family bathroom, with further generous double bedrooms and shower room on the second floor. The property retains a wealth of original features, including the original Regency panelling and window seats in the master bedroom, and Victorian cast iron stove in the dining room.
The established gardens are a special feature of this property, boarded on one side by a stream which is a tributary of the River Lowman. The gardens wrap around the house. To the rear, there is a patio for entertaining; the garden is mainly laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubs including lilacs and a rose arbour. To the side of the house, with access through a stable door from the kitchen, is a useful vegetable garden. At the front of the house there is a porch with a wonderful old wisteria over, surrounding herbaceous boarders and charming secluded seating areas for dining and relaxation. Access is from a no through lane to the property, including stone built garage, off street parking and a useful timber outbuilding, currently used as an art studio."
