Beautifully Renovated Devon Cider Barn


Pound House is a superb find for anyone looking for a character property in a blissful private setting close to Exeter.

The house is located in an idyllic valley between the popular Devon villages of Chudleigh and Starcross on the western side of the Exe Estuary. This lovely detached, south facing, former cider barn manages to retain all of its character whilst offering a few surprises such as the triple garage, a private gated driveway and absolutely stunning views from its elevated position.
A hallway leads into the ground floor accommodation. Youll find a large light and airy sitting room with exposed beams, a traditional stone fireplace and doors straight into the garden. The kitchen / breakfast room is double height and has many of the original character features as well as contemporary fittings such as a Rangemaster and attractive cream units. There is also an excellent utility room and a study. Off the front hall is a second sitting room which could easily be a third double bedroom and is currently used for guests. In addition to having independent access to the garden, it has the convenience of a large fully equipped shower room next door.
Upstairs, the double aspect master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom and fitted cupboards and there is a further bedroom on this floor, both with blissful views across the gardens.
The formal gardens are approximately half an acre and are overlooked from the delightful terrace, which runs along the back of the house. There is a small copse off to the side and beyond here the lawn extends to the sloping paddock currently kept as a wild flower meadow. Above here at the top of the paddock is a long flat area, which can be reached via a gate from the lane offering ideal independent access for a horse trailer.
Nearby Chudleigh is a popular country market town offering a good primary school and everyday shopping facilities. Starcross is situated on the estuary and also has local shops as well as a very popular sailing club and a train station with a direct service to London Paddington. The pretty village of Kenton also has a good primary school and post office. There are beaches nearby at Teignmouth and Dawlish Warren and delightful forest walks in the hills within half a mile of the house.
With the city of Exeter with its shopping, theatre, great schools and excellent transport links only 10 miles away this is a great chance to escape to the country with the benefits of cosmopolitan living on your doorstep.
