Cedar House is positioned in a delightful woodland setting next to Trinity Hill Nature Reserve, in the rolling hills of the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty..

Cedar House enjoys a wonderful setting with amazing views that stretch across a partly wooded, unspoilt valley cut by a tributary to the River Lim. The house is set back from a private access road in a secluded position at the top of the valley, looking down from the property stretches a hay meadow which is bordered by private woodland.


Thought to date from the 1950 s, and built of both brick and timber under a slate roof - the property has been comprehensively refurbished to a very high standard, creating a fantastic family home that offers fabulous views and accommodation whilst being well-insulated and efficient. The property also includes a charming, self-contained one-bedroom annexe.

The back of the house faces south and its layout means that nearly every room can enjoy the lovely view. The main part of the house has a good-sized, combined sitting and dining room with French windows that open to the terrace, each separated by a central wood-burning stove. Immediately adjacent is the fully fitted kitchen leading on to the inner hall and home office.

Upstairs are the principal bedroom and two further bedrooms, all of which share the family bath and shower room.


The annexe has a lovely sitting room with windows on two elevations looking out over the garden and view. There is a fully fitted kitchen/breakfast room, bath and shower room and a south-facing garden room that currently serves as a home office. Upstairs the annexe has a landing with French windows opening onto a delightful roof terrace overlooking the garden and paddock and a good-sized double bedroom with an ensuite WC.


The garden surrounds the house and is designed to be easily maintained, with a wide, deep, paved terrace extending across the full width of the back of the house and giving way to a gently sloping lawn. There is a large fenced vegetable garden with raised beds and a greenhouse, plus an orchard and large soft fruit cage.


Accessed from an additional driveway, the four bay car barn has three open fronted spaces, plus one enclosed, as well as a log store on either end.


Gently sloping to the southeast, this lovely meadow is split from the garden by Chestnut fencing. The paddock runs to the southern boundary, where a covered timber deck area forms a wonderful hide away/cabin on the edge of the woods.


There is a large timber barn, with power and water, recently refurbished with a new roof, and a concrete base, which has potential for conversion, subject to planning. Below the orchard, a former timber school pavilion is set on a concrete base over looking the paddock.
