Full Property Details

Oakford is a pretty village with a lovely old Parish Church, a pub, village hall and a friendly, active community. It is conveniently situated just three miles from Bampton, a charming country village providing a good range of amenities including some lovely shops, pubs, primary school and a doctor's surgery. The much larger market town of Tiverton lies 10 miles to the south with extensive local facilities including supermarkets, hospital, leisure centre, golf course and the property is within the 10 miles discount radius of the renowned Blundell's School. There is dual carriageway access to Junction 27 of the M5 motorway and Tiverton Parkway mainline station which provides regular intercity services to London (Paddington 2 hours). This whole area is renowned for its outstanding natural beauty with the Exmoor National Park some three miles to the north with its beautiful deep wooded valleys and heather moors ideal for country pursuits.

The property enjoys a pretty and particularly peaceful location on the edge of the village, yet within a short stroll of the ever popular village pub. The property is set well back from the country lane by a large driveway and has a lovely outlook to the rear over the beautiful garden with a stream running through it.

Weir Meadow is a charming, attached cottage which is believed to be over 200 years old and has some lovely period features including exposed ceiling beams throughout. Inside, the accommodation comprises a conservatory, double aspect sitting room and kitchen with fitted oak units and a stable door opens out to a small terrace overlooking the garden. Leading off the sitting room is a dining room or second reception room with fitted units including a sink, electric oven and space/plumbing for a washing machine. A door opens into a rear porch with a door to outside, and a downstairs WC. Upstairs, there are three bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room, as well as a family bathroom. Beneath the property, and accessed through a door to the side, there is a cellar/workshop with the oil-fired boiler and a stone floor. The property would benefit from some general updating and redecoration.

The established garden is a wonderful feature of the property, west facing and beautifully planted with an abundance of unusual plants and trees. A pretty stream runs through the garden with two little foot bridges and there are some lovely places to sit and enjoy the peace and seclusion. Weir Meadow is approached by an ample driveway to the front with a timber built garage and store. A path leads round the side of the cottage to the gardens and steps lead up to the conservatory and front door. There is also a separate garden store attached to the property.
