A handsome period farmhouse with stunning accommodation of impeccable quality, gardens and grounds of about 1.7 acres and magnificent views over the Axe Valley.

The Property.
Sellers Wood Farm is a particularly attractive detached farmhouse which has origins dating back, we believe, to circa 1747. The property was still farmed until the 1960's and has been a private residence since then, having undergone a very comprehensive programme of renovation and expansion within the past decade which has resulted in creating the distinctive and unique property we find today. It has been designed and finished to an uncompromising standard and with impeccable attention to detail. This is apparent when you walk through the house and into the stunning kitchen/breakfast room, which is extensively fitted with handmade, painted units under marble (and part Maple on the large central island) work surfaces with top quality appliances. These include a corner fridge, built in oven and a new electric induction hob, as well as a 4-oven oil fired Aga. Also worthy of note are the two main reception rooms which are bright and airy vaulted rooms with exposed beams and which are dominated by impressive French distressed limestone fireplaces and wonderful views.

Sellers Wood Farm beautifully blends traditional features with a modern decorative approach, creating a light and mellow ambience. Features include; beamed ceilings, exposed stone walls and a window seat to the breakfast area. There are also some contemporary elements in the bathrooms, such as the 'tear drop' bath to the luxury en-suite. Another fabulous room is the superb green oak and glass garden room to the southerly gable, which has underfloor heating and a roof light, and affords wonderful country views over the valley. The accommodation is very adaptable in its layout and benefits from a separate ground floor wing. This has letting potential and comprises a dual aspect vaulted bedroom, small vaulted sitting room with a kitchenette and a woodburner, and a shower room. To summarise, Sellers Wood Farm is a stunning individual home full of imaginative interiors, great charm and character, with elegant rooms, wonderful views and a superb peaceful location.

Gardens & Grounds.
Sellers Wood Farm is approached from a small country lane to a gravelled area which provides parking for several vehicles. An electric 5-bar timber gate leads to a driveway which swings around to the rear of the property and continues to the grounds beyond.

The rear gardens have been well planted with a profusion of colourful plants and shrubs. An area of lawn leads to the detached stone and tiled roofed studio building which has a paved terrace, adjacent to which is a further small detached outhouse which incorporates a utility area with a shower and a wc. To the North West of the property is a large area of lawn and a detached 30' modern timber barn with power, which has a mezzanine landing providing a substantial amount of storage space.

The grounds continue past a small paddock into a kitchen garden with raised beds and greenhouse to the main area of paddock, where there are several other timber sheds/stores. In total the gardens and grounds extend to about 1.7 acres.

Situation.
Sellers Wood Farm is beautifully located amongst some of East Devon's most picturesque countryside and sits in an elevated position on the gentle Easterly slopes of the Axe Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty between the popular coastal towns of Lyme Regis and Sidmouth. At the foot of this wide valley, the River Axe winds its way towards the sea, opening into the Axe Estuary, a wildlife haven and birdwatchers paradise, before reaching the mouth and small harbour at Seaton. This stretch of coastline is well know for its beautiful walks, high cliffs and dramatic scenery and is a World Heritage site known as the Jurassic Coast, due to its unique geological history.

Sellers Wood Farm is fortunate enough to have expansive panoramic South Westerly views from the house and grounds over the typical Devon patchwork landscape, as well as easy access to beautiful walks and rides over the myriad of footpaths and bridleways in the near vicinity. The property is located on the rural fringes of the village of Musbury, however it is very conveniently positioned with good road access to the surrounding towns and villages. Musbury has a garage with Spar shop, public house, primary school and pretty parish church of St. Michaels.

The busy market town of Axminster lies approximately 3 miles to the north and has a main line rail link to London (Waterloo), leisure facilities and a good range of independent shops and eateries, which include The Canteen shop and restaurant, which is owned by TV chef and good food campaigner Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall. The seaside town of Lyme Regis is approximately 5 miles to the South East.

The cathedral city of Exeter, Devon's County Town, is some 26 miles to the West and has an excellent shopping centre, schools, university, theatres, main line rail link and express train to London (Paddington), M5 access and international airport. The renowned Colyton Grammar School, one of the country's top mixed state schools, is situated about 2.5 miles away on the outskirts of the country village of Colyford.

Directions.
From Axminster proceed in a southerly direction out of the town onto the Musbury Road and continue for about 2 miles until you reach the village of Musbury. Turn left immediately after the garage and then take the second right hand turning onto Combpyne Road. Continue up the lane for approximately 1 mile and Sellers Wood Farm will be found on your left hand side.
