A unique and historically important residence with stunning period features and a separate one-bedroom annexe. Located close to the heart of the village with parking and level gardens.

Starre House: Starre House is an extremely historic attached Grade II Listed property, which is reputed to be the oldest house in the village and was built as a small Manor House by wealthy textile manufacturer William Starre in the early 1500’s. The property was believed to have been gifted to Catharine Parr by Henry VIII and is of great architectural importance in that it is very original and has some delightful and rare Tudor Period features. Worthy of particular mention is the beautiful ornate cross beamed ceiling and plank and muntin screen to the sitting and drawing rooms and the three magnificent carved Beerstone fireplaces, one of which has been inscribed with names and initials through the generations. This unique property has been the subject of a sympathetic programme of improvement in recent years and the accommodation is presented in beautiful order.
Starre Barn: Starre Barn has been thoughtfully converted into a one-bedroom annexe offering well laid out accommodation which has, in the past, been successfully holiday let, and could equally make a comfortable annexe for extended family.
Gardens and Grounds: To the West side of Starre House is a gravelled driveway which gives access to a turning area providing parking for several vehicles. A wrought iron gate gives access to the main part of the garden which comprises a good-sized area of level lawn which is bordered by flowers and shrubs. There is also a terrace adjoining the property with direct access to the kitchen. A gravelled pathway leads to Starre Barn with paved terrace to the East side and to a timber gate which gives access to a further parking space.

Location: Starre House is located just a short distance from the local amenities in this picturesque and highly desirable village, which in turn nestles on the World Heritage Jurassic Coast. Beer is a typical example of an unspoilt Devon fishing village and has a variety of shopping and recreational amenities such as restaurants, public houses, post office, galleries, primary school and sailing club. Glorious country and coastal walks are close at hand over the myriad of footpaths in the near vicinity which include the South West Peninsular Coastal Path from which there are stunning views over this dramatic stretch of coastline. Exeter, the County Town, is approximately 23 miles distant with excellent shopping facilities, main line rail link to London (Paddington), international airport and M5 access. Colyton Grammar School, one of the country's top mixed state schools is also within easy reach being about 4 miles away.
Directions: On the A3052 travelling in an easterly direction between the towns of Sidmouth and Seaton, take the right hand turning at Hangman's Stone signposted Beer B3174. Proceed for about 2 miles, dropping down Court Barton Hill towards Beer. At the T junction, turn right and then bear immediately left around the bend onto Causeway and towards the village centre. Starre House will be found after a short distance on the left hand side. Turn left in front of Starre Cottage to the driveway and parking area.
