Feature property - Restful Rectory or Perfect Country House B&B in Clyst Honiton


This stunning Victorian Rectory located in the village of Clyst Honiton on the eastern fringes of the cathedral city of Exeter presents some wonderful options.

An idyllic country home, it also has planning permission for 5 more letting rooms as well as 3 more parking spaces so it could provide a great business for someone looking to settle in beautiful East Devon. With a primary school in the village and Exeter city centre close by with its excellent schools, shopping, theatre and restaurants, Clyst House could certainly provide an excellent lifestyle.
Clyst House is a large 17th Century period house with many interesting Victorian additions. The property is not listed and the present owners have refurbished it beautifully, adding a range of modern facilities whilst retaining many of the original features that make it so special. Its approached by a long gravel drive leading to a comfortable parking and turning area by the house that is suitable for several cars.
Off the main entrance hall youll find a superb selection of reception rooms with an elegant drawing room, a dining room and a separate, spacious sitting room with an attractive bay window. The kitchen is quite delightful with a four-oven Aga, a huge breakfast area and doors leading to the walled garden. There is also a sizable conservatory and a large study, ideal for working from home.
There are seven bedrooms in all, five of which are en suite plus two bedrooms sharing a family bathroom. These are stylishly decorated and overlook the grounds and gardens.
Most of the garden area is laid to lawn and can be found to the south west of the house; around 1.5 acres in all. There is a very good range of mature trees and shrubs and on the south east side of the house youll find a well laid-out Victorian walled garden with borders containing flowering plants and shrubs. Within this area there is a useful workshop and storage building.
An ideal location for easy access to Exeter International Airport, the M5 motorway, a mainline train station and the A30, Clyst Honiton is also located near the delightful village of Topsham, home to the renowned Darts Farm Shopping Village. In nearby Woodbury there is a popular Golf and Country Club and the historic market town of Honiton is just 12 miles away.
So, an extensive private country home or an existing business to take on and develop, Clyst House is well suited to both options and will offer its new owner a great set of choices.

Clyst House is marketed by Knight Frank.
