Stoney Court is conveniently situated close to the heart of this thriving East Devon village and is a level walk to the community-run shop/Post Office and public house. The property benefits from being within catchment of the renowned King's School and the A30 dual carriageway is within easy reach providing swift access to the Cathedral City of Exeter, M5 and the coast. This is a fascinating and highly versatile historic home believed to date back to Medieval times, and subsequently the annexe to Tudor times, and is most certainly worthy of its Grade II* Listed status to protect this beautiful home for future generations. The well-proportioned and charming accommodation briefly comprises: Reception hall with traditional period panelling creating a fine first impression, a feature arched door leads through to a spacious dual-aspect sitting room with exposed beams, feature period fireplace, and French doors give direct access to the rear garden. There is a family room with a second woodburner and pleasant garden views and a dining room for more formal occasions. The kitchen/breakfast room is well-equipped with an extensive range of oak-effect-fronted cupboards and drawers, both at base and eye-level, enhanced by granite worktops and attractive tiled splashbacks. There are integrated appliances and space for a Rangemaster-style cooker and a breakfast table and chairs with a utility room/boot room offering additional storage and appliance space.
On the first floor are four good sized bedrooms, most enjoying pleasant garden and country views, and a family bathroom which is fitted with a modern white suite. The annexe cottage is accessed via the principal sitting room offering potential to incorporate into the principal residence or as a completely independent home for relatives or holiday business, lettings, etc. The annexe (believed to date back to Tudor times) also has many interesting period features such as exposed beams and wooden panels. There is an open-plan sitting room/dining room and area for a kitchen, ground floor shower room and two double bedrooms on the first floor.
The property is approached via a large gravelled driveway providing off-road parking for several vehicles and there are stables which would provide under-cover parking if required. The gardens and grounds are another appealing feature, being a lovely size extending to approximately 0.7 of an acre.
A large expanse of lawn provides plenty of room for children to run and play and is bordered by well-established flowerbeds bursting with a variety of specimen plants, shrubs and trees which include a 150 year old wisteria. A small orchard has an array of fruit trees with an area which would lend itself as a kitchen/vegetable garden, pleasing any keen gardener. There is a large workshop with gardeners utility/WC and a lovely home office with pleasant garden outlooks. The workshop and home office could potentially lend itself for additional annexe if ever desired (stp).
