A stunning contemporary barn conversion with extensive accommodation of 6 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, which could suit extended family or provide income potential, in an enviable location with 5-bay carport surrounding a sheltered and private walled garden with gated access.
Keble Court is a magnificent newly converted residence which has been formed from two handsome farm buildings. It has been finished to an exceptional standard with some striking architectural features which include a fabulous vaulted entrance hall with solid Oak staircase rising to a galleried landing space with walkway giving sight into the second reception room. The principal reception room is of grand proportions, being some 47' in length and cleverly divided with a double sided woodburner, creating a central focal point within the space which is laid to grey Oak flooring. The kitchen/breakfast room is bathed in natural light with majority glazing to one wall and skylights to the roof. The bespoke, quality units have been designed and installed by In-Toto kitchens with a contemporary gloss finish, high specification appliances and clean lines. The kitchen is complemented by a useful utility room which also offers an interior door to the second property allowing a great degree of flexibility to the living arrangements.
To the first floor, the four double bedrooms all offer interesting spaces with vaulted ceilings, highlighted with feature trusses in natural wood. The two larger doubles benefit from beautifully finished ensuite shower rooms and there is, of course, a family bathroom with bath and separate shower finished to the same high quality for the other two bedrooms. The principal bedroom is of particularly generous proportions with a large arched window; another impressive feature of the room giving a nod back to the origins of the building.
The Piggery is a single storey property with interconnecting door to the main house, offering a great degree of flexibility to the living arrangements, whether it provides extended accommodation to the main house or a separate dwelling with potential to provide an income.
There is a welcoming living room incorporating a lofty kitchen/dining space and comfortable seating area under a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams. There are two double bedrooms; the principal of which has an ensuite shower room and double wardrobe with automatic lighting. There is also a bathroom finished to the same exacting standards of the rest of the property.
The property is accessed from the lane through double wooden gates into a paved courtyard with 5-bay carport. The majority of the grounds lie centrally, surrounded by the properties and therefore, being particularly sheltered and secluded with an attractive stone wall forming the fourth boundary. There is a good sized, level area of lawn to the centre with paved terrace conveniently sited adjacent to the kitchen where a door provides access and connects the interior and exterior space.
To the rear of the property are terraced, low maintenance borders, a screened oil tank and secure pedestrian gate to the lane. There is a pathway to the Northern and Eastern boundaries, allowing for full access to the exterior elevations of the property.
Keble Court is located in the tiny scattered hamlet of Northmostown, in a beautiful country location. It sits in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty within some of East Devon's most picturesque countryside and there are lovely country walks and rides which emanate virtually from the doorstep. Keble Court is situated in a tucked away and sheltered location within the heart of the countryside, with several villages and hamlets within close proximity including Tipton St John, Harpford and Newton Poppleford. It is also extremely accessible to the Jurassic coastline with the highly desirable Regency town of Sidmouth being only a 5 minute drive to the south and just a countryside walk away.
Sidmouth is East Devon's premier coastal resort and has a long esplanade with wide pebbled and sand (at low tide) beaches, and is situated on the World Heritage Coastline known as The Jurassic Coast. There are some beautiful walks along this stretch of coastline over the myriad of public footpaths, which include the South West Peninsular Coastal Path which runs along the whole of the Devon coastline. The town itself has many beautiful parks and a shopping centre with a great variety of independent shops and boutiques, as well as the usual multiples. There is also an out of town Waitrose store (just a few minutes drive from the property), cinema, theatre and range of sporting facilities including tennis courts, croquet lawn, swimming pool, golf club and a cricket pitch overlooking the sea.
Sidmouth lies approximately 9 miles from the busy market town of Honiton which has a main line rail link to London (Waterloo). The Cathedral City of Exeter and Devon's County Town, is some 15 miles to the west with excellent shopping facilities, theatres, main line rail link to London (Paddington), M5 access and international airport.
