A spacious and well-appointed detached house with superb gardens and grounds of about 1.8 acres and a useful traditionally built barn.
Bradcott House is a detached residence which was built in 1983 and was designed by Potton, specialists in timber framed houses. It has spacious accommodation with a great deal of character and blends more traditional features with modern design. These included many exposed beams and timbers, oak flooring, exposed brick walls, and magnificent brick fireplace with an inset multi fuel burner to the sitting room.
Worthy of note is the large kitchen/dining room which has been fitted with an extensive range of units and has a central island and French doors through to the terrace. To the first floor there are four bedrooms, two of which have en-suites, and a family bath/shower room. The accommodation is flexible in its arrangement and has a ground floor room, currently used as a TV room and snug which could equally provide a fifth bedroom.
Gardens & Grounds.
Bradcott House is approached from The Green over a driveway which provides parking for several vehicles, adjacent to which is the detached garage/workshop building which has an electric up and over door. Behind this is a timber store and the oil tank.
The gardens principally lie to the rear of the property and have been beautifully created and maintained over the past 20 or so years by the current owners. There is a large south-easterly facing paved terrace which gains delightful views over the gardens and grounds which are in the main laid to lawn. A brick pathway winds its way through the gardens, under a rose clad pergola and over a bridge crossing a small stream and leading to a summerhouse. There are borders containing a wide variety of colourful plants shrubs and trees, as well as some raised beds and a greenhouse.
Beyond the garden to the south is a level area of paddock which runs down to the railway line and within this land, and with its own separate access, is a very useful detached brick outbuilding. In total the gardens and grounds extend to about 1.8 acres.
Bradcott House is located on the fringes of the pretty and desirable village of Whimple which sits between the market town of Honiton and the Cathedral City of Exeter. Whimple serves a wider rural community and has two public houses, primary school, post office/shop, doctors surgery and also a main line rail link to London Waterloo. The town of Ottery St Mary lies about 3 miles to the south east and has a wide range of shopping amenities as well as the well respected King's School.
The busy market town of Honiton lies about 10 miles to the East and is particularly well-known as an antique and book centre as well as having most of the usual multiples such as Smiths, Boots, Tesco and a variety of shops, restaurants, schools, sports centre/ swimming pool, golf club and main line rail link to London (Waterloo). The Cathedral City of Exeter, the county town, lies some 9 miles to the west. Exeter has excellent shopping and sporting facilities, theatres, art centre, main line rail link to London (Paddington), international airport and M5 access.
From Honiton take the A30 in a westerly (Exeter) direction and follow this road for about 5 miles turning off at Daisymount exit. Follow the signs for Whimple, crossing two roundabouts, and proceed into the small hamlet of Hand & Pen, turning right, again signposted Whimple. Continue into the village, turning left at The Thirsty Farmer Public House and go over the roundabout. Take the first left onto The Green and Bradcott House will be found after about 200 yards on your left hand side.
The property has flooded in the past. The first time was in 1997 and then subsequently in 2008. Preventative measures have now been put in place and further information can be gained by contacting the office.
