    Meadow House represents an imposing and elegant Grade II Listed former Vicarage providing extremely versatile and spacious eight bedroomed accommodation, part of which was formerly utilised for ancillary accommodation and hence suiting those seeking multigenerational/dual occupancy needs or to provide an income potential. This impressive residence is believed in part to date back to much earlier origins, although the property was substantially remodelled and enhanced in the Georgian era, with further improvements in recent years whilst retaining much of the charm and features of its time.

    Situated on the edge of this pretty and rural Devon village, Meadow House is approached via a smart sweeping entrance which opens to a large circular driveway wrapping around the feature front lawn. A substantial range of traditional outbuildings adjoin with a cobbled courtyard and providing superb workshop space, car port parking and ample storage together with a part first floor hobbies room. It is thought that subject to obtaining any necessary consents this range of outbuildings may well provide the potential to create further accommodation, if required.

    The established and extensively well maintained gardens and grounds are a particularly attractive feature of the property providing a wide variety of year round species and colour, containing in brief; landscaped lawned gardens and patio spaces, walled courtyard with raised feature pond, attractive high-end greenhouse, fruit enclosure and vegetable beds, together with an orchard and mature woodland area.

    In all, Meadow House extends to about 1.32 acres.

    Enjoying a tremendous amount of natural light from the predominately south facing position with views from all rooms over the gardens and countryside beyond. The accommodation, from ground level comprises; a welcoming entrance hall with two grand reception rooms to either side, a dual aspect sitting room and an impressive dining room both containing woodburning stoves. This leads to a smart and well-equipped study with bespoke fitted shelving and storage. To the rear of the hall is a spacious kitchen/breakfast room with courtyard access, a separate utility room and cloakroom. The kitchen houses a range of handmade oak units with slate worksurfaces together with an electric AGA. Adjoining the kitchen and dining room is a useful inner hall, boot room and attractive mainly glazed garden room with glass roof lantern, linking the main accommodation to a large games room with cloakroom, two bedrooms and a shower room to the first floor above.

    The main hall staircase leads to the first floor landing with cloakroom. This serves four large double rooms, the master bedroom complete with en-suite shower room and dressing area, with an additional en-suite shower room to the second bedroom. The rear landing provides access to two further bedrooms one also with en-suite shower room and a family bathroom.
