A handsome Edwardian house situated in a wonderful country location with far reaching views and gardens and grounds of about 2/3rds acre
Court Baron is situated in a delightful semi-rural location in the tiny hamlet of Higher Cheriton, which nestles between the villages of Payhembury and Feniton. The location has the best of both worlds in as much as it is readily accessible to Feniton Station (1.2 miles) which has direct trains to both Exeter and London Waterloo, as well as the busy market town of Honiton. The property has a southerly orientation and stands in large gardens which enjoy panoramic views over typical Devon farmland and stretch to the distant Haldon Forest to the west.
Both Feniton and Payhembury have a good range of amenities which include shops, public house, hairdressers, primary school and village halls. Honiton lies about 5 miles to the south east and has a variety of independent shops and supermarkets, sport and leisure facilities and main line rail link to London (Waterloo). Exeter, the County Town, is approximately 21 miles to the west with an excellent shopping centre, theatres, sport and leisure facilities, M5 access and small international airport. The renowned Kings School at Ottery St Mary is approximately 4.3 miles away and Colyton Grammar School, one of England's top co-educational state schools, is some 9 miles to the south west. The World Heritage Jurassic Coast at Lyme Bay is about 11 miles distant.
Court Baron is an attractive detached residence which was built around the turn of the last century and started life as two farmworkers cottages before being converted into one house in the 1930's. It has a handsome appearance with its mellow brick walls, central gable, two bay windows to the front façade and interesting roof lines.
The accommodation is well presented with all the principal rooms taking advantage of the far-reaching country outlook and retains a wealth of character with high ceilings to both the ground and first floors. Worthy of particular mention is the sitting room which is very light and has two bay windows, door to the gardens and an ornate open fireplace.
To the first floor there are four bedrooms, the principal of which has a range of fitted wardrobes and an en-suite shower room. The bedrooms are partly in the roof space so have high sloping ceilings and painted beams.
