A detached house set in grounds of over half an acre in an elevated position commanding fabulous country views.
Glebe Cottage is a detached residence which was constructed, we believe, in the early 1970's as the 'new' Vicarage, before being purchased by the current owner some 40 or so years ago. It has light and airy accommodation with all the principal rooms taking advantage of the magnificent setting and views.
Glebe Cottage would now benefit from some updating and therefore has great potential and offers an excellent opportunity for those looking to put their stamp on a property.
Gardens and Grounds.
Glebe Cottage is approached from the small village lane through double gates onto a driveway which continues to a turning area providing parking for several vehicles. Adjacent to this is the attached large single garage and a small enclosed courtyard.
The property sits in the middle of mature gardens and grounds which extend to about 0.6 acre and which create the most beautiful private and quiet setting. They are in the main laid to lawn, with drifts of daffodils in spring, and are interspersed with shrub beds and there are well-established borders and many fine trees. To the west of the property is a paved terrace, whilst to the south is a strategically positioned rotating summerhouse which takes full advantage of the magnificent views over the pretty 14th century St Mary's Church to the countryside and Hartridge in the distance.
Glebe Cottage is situated in a splendid country location within the small village of Luppitt, which in turn is located in the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village nestles amongst some of Devon's finest rolling countryside and the property itself is also only a stone's throw from Luppitt Common, a private landholding of some 200 acres and a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Luppitt, which lies only 6 miles to the north of the market town of Honiton, has a pretty church and a village hall. Glebe Cottage sits in an elevated position, thus taking full advantage of beautiful country views and there is excellent access for walking, riding and other country pursuits in the area.
The busy market town of Honiton is approximately 6 miles distant with a main line rail link to London (Waterloo). An express rail link (to Paddington) can also be found at Taunton, some 17 miles distant, where the M5 can also be joined. Exeter, the County Town, lies some 24 miles to the west with excellent shopping facilities, theatres, arts centre and international airport. The World Heritage Coastline, known as the Jurassic Coast, at Lyme Bay is approximately 12 miles distant.
