A large 5 bedroom detached country residence set in delightful gardens, grounds and paddock of about 2.2 acres.
Courshay House is a handsome, substantial detached residence which was built in the latter part of the 20th century and is of traditional construction with principally rendered and stone elevations under a slated roof. It benefits from double glazed windows, as well as photo voltaic panels which give a great return.
Courshay House sits in generous gardens and grounds that create a most apt setting for those with a love of flora and fauna. The gardens extend to about 0.8 of an acre and there is also a further paddock to the north. The house gains wonderful views over the gardens and paddock to the countryside beyond.
The property has very spacious accommodation which is well-presented and has a number of features which are unusual to find in a more modern residence. Worthy of particular mention is the huge sitting room which has a bay window and two oriel windows as well as a brick fireplace with Jetmaster style fire. The accommodation is very flexible in its arrangement and could provide a ground floor bedroom in the current office, as this has a shower room next to it, so it could become a ground floor suite.
To the first floor there are five bedrooms, the principal of which is a large room with a double aspect and a good range of built-in wardrobes, dressing room and en-suite bath/shower room. There are also two good sized storage areas in the en-suite.
Gardens and Grounds.
The property is approached from the 'no through road' lane over a driveway which provides parking for many vehicles and adjacent to this is the detached double garage with two sets of up and over doors, power and light. This also incorporates a workshop area with a workbench. The gardens, in the main, lie to the rear and have been beautifully planted and maintained in the 25 years of the current owners stewardship and are a mass of colour with a great variety of plants and shrubs.
Adjoining the property is a huge paved terrace with lawns stretching out from here and which are interspersed with a wide selection of specimen trees including many fruit trees and fully stocked beds. There is also a spring fed pond together with a composting area where there is a greenhouse and garden shed. There is a second entrance from the lane with a drive which swings around past a log store to a 5-bar gate which gives access into the paddock. The paddock extends to about 1.4 acres with the gardens and grounds totalling just under 2.2 acres.
Courshay House is situated in a delightful, rural location in the tiny hamlet of Courshay, which in turn sits on the fringes of the desirable and picturesque village of Hawkchurch. Hawkchurch is a popular village and has a Public House, Hotel and Primary School and is located amongst some of East Devon's most attractive countryside.
The property is situated approximately 5 miles from the market town of Axminster with its range of shops, schools, leisure centre, swimming pool and main line rail link to London (Waterloo). The World Heritage Coast at Lyme Regis lies approximately 7 miles away and the small town of Chard is some 6 miles to the north.
The Cathedral City and County Town of Exeter is approximately 33 miles to the south west and has an excellent shopping centre, theatres, cinemas, main line rail link to London (Paddington), international airport and M5 access. Taunton, the County Town of Somerset, with its full range of shops and main line rail link to London (Paddington) lies approximately 18 miles to the north.
