A substantial period property with 235 sqm of well presented, versatile accommodation situated in the heart of the popular Mid Devon village of Bampton with a large walled garden and views to the beautiful surrounding countryside.
Situated in the heart of Bampton, The Court House lies within a short walk of the many amenities that this charming country village has to offer, including some delightful shops, pubs and eateries, a 15th century church, primary school and doctors surgery. The larger market town of Tiverton lies 7 miles to the south with dual carriage way access to Junction 27 of the M5 motorway and Tiverton Parkway mainline station which provides regular intercity services to London (Paddington 2 hours). The whole area is known for its outstanding natural beauty with Exmoor National Park just 3.5 miles to the north and the beaches of the beautiful North Devon coast are only a 40 minute drive.
Presented to a high standard throughout, this charming period property provides most spacious and versatile accommodation that can be used as a family home with the potential for dual occupancy or to provide an income.
Parts of the property are very old and, as the name suggests, it was once the Court House for Bampton and has retained its impressive rooms with high ceilings, large south facing floor to ceiling windows to the front and a wealth of original features including a beautiful oak staircase, a most attractive arched window on the landing, an ornate ceiling rose, cast iron Victorian fireplaces, coving, pictures rails and deep skirtings. On the ground floor the entance hall with Victorian mosaic quarry tiled floor leads through to the reception hall with the original oak staircase rising to the upper floors and a door leads into the spacious dining room with a Victorian fireplace. The kitchen is well fitted with wall and base units incorporating an electric oven, induction hob, and space for washing machine and dishwasher, inset oil-fired boiler. The sitting room has a delightful outlook over the garden with a door opening on to the terrace. A conservatory/ garden store leads off with a high perspex ceiling, patio doors to the garden and a useful utility area. The first floor comprises two separate areas, to the rear are two double bedrooms and a smart family bathroom, and to the front of the house is a smaller bedroom/ study and a good sized sitting room (or further bedroom). The top floor comprises a landing / study area and the substantial master bedroom which benefits from an en-suite shower room.
The large garden is a particular feature of the property, enclosed by stone walling and mostly laid to lawn with well stocked flower and herbacious beds and borders. A paved patio area immediately adjoins the property with access to the conservatory and sitting room and there is a pretty pond. A pathway leads to a useful stone garden store 4.26m (14') x 3.04m (10'). There are some lovely views to the Motte and surrounding hills.
