This fine Georgian residence occupies an idyllic setting within the Blackdown Hills AONB and is close to the rural communities of Yarcombe, Stockland and Wambrook.

The five-bedroom period dwelling, named Crawley House, is set within picturesque grounds of around 2.09 acres of established gardens and mature woodland.

Midweek Herald: The sitting room with a lovely feature fireplace

Inside, the property is beautifully presented and spacious, with tasteful enhancements and retained period features. The main sitting room benefits from a dual aspect, an inglenook fireplace with an inset woodburning stove, oak flooring and a spindled staircase rising to the first floor. The family room is equally pleasant with its oak floor and focal fireplace. The dining area is an impressive open plan room leading into the kitchen/sitting area which features an oil-fired Aga set within a fireplace. The traditional kitchen has a classic look with fitted units, an inset Belfast sink, and an impressive walk-in larder.

Midweek Herald: The property sits on a plot of just over two acres

On the first floor, a large landing leads to five double bedrooms with stunning views of the surrounding countryside and a family bathroom. The principal bedroom benefits from an ensuite bathroom.

Outside, mature gardens sit mainly to the south and west of the house and feature a gently sloping lawn and a large area of copse/woodland dropping down to a shallow stream. The walled area immediately to the south provides total privacy and seclusion, and a sunny aspect.

To the front, there is a private gravel driveway, plenty of parking space and a timber open-fronted garage.

The detached barn, currently used for additional external storage, could be converted into an annexe, office or holiday let, subject to the necessary planning permissions.
