Badgers Rest is situated in one of the most idyllic settings situated on the foothills of East Hill Strips commanding the most stunning views with Dartmoor National Park on the horizon. The Regency Coastal town of Sidmouth and the traditional market town of Ottery St Mary (home to the renowned King's School) are both within a ten minute drive. Major roads are also within easy reach providing swift access to the Cathedral City of Exeter, M5 and beyond. The immediate surrounding countryside offers outstanding horse-riding and walking facilities whilst admiring this wonderful scenic position.
The property itself provides light, airy, well-proportioned accommodation briefly comprising: Reception hall, spacious sitting room/dining room with feature fireplace, inset woodburning/multi-fuel stove and picture window taking full advantage of the view. There is a lean-to conservatory and a spacious kitchen/breakfast room which provides a comfortable heart of the home with plenty of room for families to cook, dine and socialise together. The kitchen area is fully fitted with traditional timber-fronted cupboards and drawers, both at base and eye-level, whilst allowing space for modern appliances and a traditional pantry.
There are three double bedrooms all benefitting from magnificent views and the shower room is fitted with a stylish white suite. There is a rear porch/boot room and the property has extensive uPVC double-glazing and an oil-fired central heating system.
The property is approached via a long driveway leading to a large parking area providing plenty of room for numerous vehicles including boats, caravans, etc. And access to the large detached garage. The total site area measures just over 3.5 acres. The property lends itself to be substantially extended to create an imposing family home, if required, subject to the necessary planning permissions/consents.
The principal gardens are mature and well-stocked with a variety of specimen plants, shrubs and small trees, creating a range of interesting colours throughout the year. There is a kitchen/vegetable garden which would please any keen gardener. Lawned areas provide plenty of room for children to run and play, and a strategically placed patio as well as seating areas create space to enjoy outdoor dining/entertaining whilst appreciating this beautiful setting.
The numerous outbuildings include a brick-built workshop with light, power and WC, and various timber garden sheds. There is access to a stable block which includes three stables and a tack room creating an opportunity for equestrian/livestock use. The stables lead through to a large paddock (above) of approximately 1.5 acres and subsequently an additional paddock which is just under an acre. The mature hedging and trees (Scots Pine, Beech, Oak and Ash) help create a haven for wildlife bursting with an array of birds, deer and many more all encouraged by the mature copse and orchard. The land has had minimal cultivation over the years creating a natural environment for animals to safely graze, etc. This is a superb opportunity for those who would appreciate wildlife and country views whilst providing a home for a variety of animals.
