Property description

A delightful country residence in a parkland setting with within the wonderful rolling countryside of the Axe Valley.

Sector Hall is an immaculately presented late Victorian House dating from 1838. The house is Grade II listed and the proportions are typical of its era, with high ceilings, elegant proportions and many architectural features. The house is accessed via a long private drive that sweeps through the pasture
and parkland arriving at the front of the house, which stand in a commanding elevated position with superb far-reaching views.

Immediately noticeable is the quality and attention to detail in the finish as well as the abundance of natural light that floods in through the large windows. The reception hall creates a superb sense of arrival with a large open fire and attractive staircase. The principal reception rooms are
accessed from here and offer superb views across the grounds to the south and west of the house.

The kitchen forms the heart of the home, overlooking the gardens to the south and west and with access to a stone terrace ideal for outdoor entertaining. The quality of the kitchen matches the rest of the house with a high specification finish and the latest appliances including a four oven electric Aga with two over gas module, a large central island and family seating area with wood burner. The exceptional sitting room is incredibly light with a dual aspect, and double doors leading to the terrace on the east side of the house.

Beyond the sitting room is an extensive utility/laundry room also with double doors out to a terrace on the west side of the house. This was formerly a kitchen, and there is scope to create an annexe in this part of the house with the three bedrooms and shower room above, although it also easily connects with the rest of the main house.

The exceptional finish and attention to detail continues to the first floor, where the principal bedrooms are accessed from the galleried landing overlooking the reception hall. The principal bedroom is of particular note with exceptional views over the grounds towards the lake and a beautifully finished en suite bathroom. There are a further four bedrooms in this part of the house, all of generous proportions and a superb family bathroom.

The Coach House is positioned conveniently close to the main house yet maintains good privacy and has its own access via a fork from the main driveway. The finish is of the same exacting standard as the main house and there is a well-appointed kitchen/dining room with a corridor leading to the garden room, sitting room and bedroom above. There is plenty of natural light and charming views over the paddocks.

The gardens and grounds complement the house perfectly, with majestic trees, parkland gardens and a superb outlook. The long private driveway passes over a stone bridge and continues up to the house passing a terraced waterfall flowing from the top lake to a decorative pond with entertaining terrace and wood fired pizza oven. The lake has a jetty and a fountain and is a haven for wildlife. Overlooking the lake is the magnificent summer house with a large covered veranda and decked terrace, providing a fantastic outdoor entertaining or relaxing spot to enjoy the grounds and the sunsets.

Surrounding the main lawns is the mature woodland including large oak and beech trees with various paths cut through, adding to the idyllic setting that Sector Hall enjoys. Directly behind the main house is a productive vegetable garden and greenhouse with raised beds.

Of the total acreage, about 33 acres are currently let out to two local farmers on tenancy agreements under The Agricultural Holdings Act 1986. The property will be sold subject to these agreements with vacant possession available on the house, buildings and remaining 24.8 acres. Of this 24.8 acres, 8.34 acres is pasture, 7.7 acres is woodland, with the remainder being gardens, grounds and buildings.

Sector Hall sits in an idyllic setting at the end of a long private drive in the middle of its land, in the midst of the beautiful rolling countryside of
East Devon. The setting provides the rare combination of privacy and convenience, with the centre of Axminster only a mile from the property.
Axminster has some excellent local amenities with its historic minster church, supermarkets, wide range of shops, pubs and restaurants.

The world-famous Jurassic Coast is about five miles away at the pretty seaside town of Lyme Regis, with a sandy and shingle beach. This part of the coast boasts breath-taking scenery and a fascinating history as well as a number of pubs, restaurants and cafes. There are various opportunities for water sports, sailing and sea fishing as well as some spectacular walks along the South West coast path.
