Little Orchard is a large detached 4 bedroom home, located in the pretty hamlet of Calverleigh and set in just over an acre of mature gardens and paddock.
With the most amazing views and a real feeling of calm, its hard to believe you are only three miles from Tiverton!
Little Orchard - a haven of tranquillity set in just over an acre of mature gardens and paddock, commands the most enviable of positions. Turning in to the property, I was intrigued and excited as to what awaited me at the bottom of its private drive and I was not disappointed!
You are immediately drawn to the super view and position of Little Orchard. Your eye is drawn across the garden, beyond the paddock and over the valley and woodland. It certainly does not feel that you are just three miles from the bustling market town of Tiverton.
A stable door opens into a handy porch and through to the hallway. This is a lovely space and leads to all the principle ground floor rooms. The staircase and galleried landing offer a rather distinguished entrance.
There is a handy cloakroom, under stair storage and a separate dining room with French doors to the side garden. The kitchen is a lovely space and offers a country cottage feel, with duck egg coloured units, a Belfast sink, pale granite work surfaces and space for a table and chairs. Within the kitchen, the range cooker is included in the sale and there is space and plumbing for a dishwasher. The dining room next door is currently being used as a play room and study, but if furnished witha table and chairs, the extra space in the kitchen would be great for a sofa and coffee table, creating a perfect family space. A door from the kitchen leads to the rear porch / utility room with ample space for further white goods and to kick off boots and coats after enjoying the garden and paddock.
The lounge is simply stunning. What a large and light room! A real sense of calm hits you when you enter. The red woodburning stove sits handsomely on the sandstone fireplace but the focal point of the room has to be the bi-fold doors to the end, leading out onto the terrace and offering the most impressive view over Little Orchard's land and beyond.
On the first floor are four double bedrooms, three benefitting from the lovely views to the front of the house. All of the bedrooms have generous built in wardrobes and the master further benefits from an en-suite. There is also the family bathroom and a large airing cupboard, perfect for storage and drying clothes.
The house is hidden from the road. The private driveway leads down to spacious parking and turning space, and the detached double garage.
To the rear of the property is a lovely terrace, perfect for morning coffee and evening entertaining. Mature gardens, a log store, a shed and lawns lead down to the gated paddock with stable block. In all the property extends to just over an acre.
Situated in the pretty little hamlet of Calverleigh, with its parish church, village hall, toddler group and public house. The church boasts a small yet welcoming congregation with a good community spirit, they regularly hold events for the community including duck races, fayres, produce shows and other social events.
Calverleigh lies just 3 miles to the west of Tiverton, where there is a good shopping centre and an excellent range of amenities including a modern hospital, leisure centre, College of Further Education, Blundell's School and an excellent 18 hole golf course. There is fast dual carriageway access to junction 27 of the M5 motorway with its adjoining Parkway Station (London Paddington is about 2½ hours).
From Tiverton, proceed out of town on the old Rackenford Road which will take you through Calverleigh, passing the Rose & Crown pub and riding stables on your right. About ½ mile along, at the top of the hill, you will see the property on the right; just opposite the turning for Templeton.
