    Colleylake enjoys a truly idyllic and unspoilt rural setting with no immediate neighbours, nestled amongst this picturesque wooded valley and countryside, just 0.34 of a mile (footpath) and 0.8 of a mile (road) to the desirable village of Kings Nympton. The property is approached from the country lane via a third of a mile long private entrance drive which meanders alongside the Colley Lake stream and wooded valley. Once arriving at Colleylake you feel privacy, seclusion amongst a beautiful setting in a world of your own. This country home was converted from a former stone farm building which originally dated back to 1869 built predominately of stone elevations beneath a tiled roof with later extensions.

    The house comprises a spacious four bedroomed detached family home providing a neutral canvass to move into or further enhance offering tremendous potential. Planning consent was granted in 2000 for further enlargement to the ground floor, a loft conversion and to construct an additional detached double garage. It is understood from the vendor that due to the commencement of part of the proposed works including re-modelling of the layout the consent may remain valid. Further detail and plans are available upon request.

    This spacious family home is facing due south, south west enjoying lots of natural light and comprises, on the ground floor; an entrance hall, living room with woodburning stove and patio doors, separate large dining room and a good sized kitchen/breakfast room with adjoining utility room. A rear entrance hall, larder and ground floor shower room is also at ground floor level. The first floor provides four double bedrooms, the master complete with en-suite shower room and a separate family bathroom.

    In all, Colleylake extends to about 4.39 Acres.

    For layout and approximate room measurements please see the enclosed Floorplan and refer to the Virtual Tour.


    Colleylake occupies an outstanding position approached over its own long private entrance drive with adjoining lawned areas which leads to a large parking area and a detached garage/workshop with power and light connected.

    The main lawned gardens adjoin the front and rear elevations of the property. The gardens lead to a very attractive riverbank meadow and mature woodland, part lawned with a variety of mature trees and the Colley Lake stream carving through the land. The picturesque grounds enjoy privacy and seclusion and in all, Colleylake extends to about 4.39 Acres.

    Please Note: A public footpath links George Nympton to Kings Nympton and crosses a foot bridge between the woodland and outside of the main garden area at the narrowest point. This does provide a direct footpath to both villages from Colleylake.

    The adjoining land owner also benefits from a right of way over the entrance lane to gain access to their land.
