The property is positioned in the small hamlet of Gosford with a rural feel positioned in close proximity of the popular town of Ottery St Mary. The hamlet of Gosford is surrounded by countryside and has a range of excellent walking routes, due to it being positioned not far from the River Otter.

Ottery St Mary has a wide range of shopping facilities, including Sainsbury's, and the renowned The Kings School together with a sought after primary school. Nearby is the popular Otter Garden Centre and Escot Park is within easy access. Exeter is an easy commute to the west and offers a wide range of facilities, rail links on the Paddington and Waterloo lines, access to the M5 at Junction 30 and Exeter International Airport.


Gosford Pines is an impressive Grade II listed home that dates from the late 18th century. Having been lived in by the current owners for many years, this property offers more than 5,000 square feet of versatile accommodation arranged over three floors within easy reach of both Honiton and Ottery St. Mary.

On the ground floor are two large reception rooms, the sitting room with open fireplace and the dining room. They both feature large south-facing bay windows overlooking the landscaped gardens to the front of the property. The fitted kitchen/breakfast room has an Aga and ample space for a large dining table, while the pantry and utility room provide further space for storage and appliances.

The generous main bedroom has an ensuite bathroom with a corner bath and a separate shower. One further bedroom has an ensuite bathroom, while another has access to a Jack and Jill shower room.
