Harcourt is situated in one of the most idyllic settings less than a mile from the centre of Ottery St Mary with all its excellent amenities and home to the renowned King's School. The regency coastal town of Sidmouth is less than a 15 minute drive and there is swift access to the A30 providing access to the Cathedral City of Exeter and the M5. The adjoining countryside offers a beautiful setting whilst being a haven for local wildlife and has excellent walking/horse-riding facilities.
The property itself enjoys light and airy well-proportioned accommodation briefly comprising: Reception hall, spacious dual-aspect sitting room with delightful views and feature fireplace with inset woodburning/multi-fuel stove and French doors leading through to a double-glazed conservatory with pleasant garden outlooks. The kitchen/breakfast room is comprehensively fitted with a range of cupboards and drawers, both at base and eye-level, with room for modern appliances and ample work surfaces for food preparation, pleasing any keen cook. There is room for a breakfast table and chairs and a separate dining room allows for more formal occasions. This would also lend itself as a second ground floor bedroom if required. The master bedroom is a good double room again with wonderful views and benefits from a Jack and Jill en-suite shower room which is fitted with a modern white suite. On the first floor are two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom which has recently been refurbished and enjoys both bath and separate walk-in shower. The property is double-glazed throughout and has an oil-fired central heating system.
The property is approached via a sweeping driveway leading to a substantial parking area providing room for numerous vehicles including boats, motorhome etc. And there is a large detached double garage with light and power, as well as a workshop, utility room and a gardener's WC. A substantial outbuilding offers scope to create a detached annexe for independent relatives if ever required (subject to planning permissions/consents).
The gardens and grounds are another appealing feature with a broad variety of mature plants, shrubs and trees creating a range of colour and interest throughout the year. A large expanse of lawn provides plenty of room for children to run and play with a decking area for outdoor dining/entertaining in this idyllic setting with a feeling of seclusion and privacy. In all, the total plot area is approaching ¾ of an acre and the property offers the possibility to substantially extend to create a larger family home if required (subject to the necessary planning permissions/consents).
