A magnificent Georgian farmhouse with beautifully presented accommodation and a detached studio, set in the most idyllic gardens and grounds running down to the River Sid.

The Property.
Deepway Farmhouse is a very handsome, Grade II Listed residence which is located on the outskirts of the village in enchanting gardens which create the most idyllic setting offering great peace, seclusion and quietude. It sits only a short walk from the village which has great appeal due to its active social scene and range of amenities including a shop/butchers, decorative interiors shop, Red Lion Inn, popular primary school, village halls and the Parish Church of St Giles which boasts a rare Saxon crypt.

Sidmouth lies about 3 miles away and is East Devon's premier coastal resort. It 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, 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, cinema, theatre and range of sporting facilities including tennis courts, croquet lawn, indoor swimming pool, sports centre, golf club and a cricket pitch overlooking the sea.

This Georgian farmhouse has origins dating back to circa 1787 and has greatly evolved over the years with the hay barn to the northerly gable now being incorporated into the main house, as well as the conversion of a separate detached outbuilding which now comprises the garage and studio. The property has been greatly enhanced in recent years and there have also been extensive works to the gardens including a fabulous paved terrace which takes full advantage of this gorgeous setting.

The house is exceptionally handsome from the garden side with its colourwashed rendered and stone elevations under thatched, slated and tiled roofs, and has a westerly orientation therefore making full use of the afternoon sunshine as well as all the principal rooms taking advantage of the views over the garden to the River Sid.

The accommodation is immaculately presented and is particularly light for a property of this type with many of the rooms having a double aspect. The rooms are of generous proportions and retain a wealth of character features which include ceiling beams, window seats and attractive fireplaces which include the impressive open inglenook to the sitting room. Worthy of particular mention is the kitchen/breakfast room which is very well equipped with two electric Agas, bespoke units and granite work surfaces, the superb garden room/office which has a wonderful outlook and doors on the large terrace, and the principal bedroom suite with its freestanding copper bath, arched window and picturesque views along the lane-side, River Sid and to the Millennium Green.

As previously mentioned, the detached studio and garage building offers great adaptability and a variety of uses and would work particularly well as a home office, hobbies or studio as well as having further conversion potential to provide a self-contained annexe (subject to planning).

Gardens & Grounds.
The property is approached from the lane-side over a gravelled driveway which provides parking for several vehicles, adjacent to which is the garage/studio. There is also a second driveway to the South of the property accessed through double oak gates which provides further parking. Undoubtedly one of Deepway Farmhouse’s main features is its simply stunning setting which is very well established with a huge variety of colourful shrubs and trees which provide great privacy where one would never know they were so close to the village.

Adjacent to the house is a beautiful, large, recently laid terrace with steps leading down to the lawns which run down to the river. There is an attractive thatched summerhouse which takes advantage of some wonderful views, whilst to the other side of the Sid, and accessed over a timber bridge, is a more natural area of garden. To the South of the house at a slightly higher level is a kitchen garden/orchard and greenhouse. In total the grounds extend to approximately one acre.

Services.
Mains electricity, water and drainage. Oil fired central heating. Hard wired smoke/heat detectors fitted throughout the property. BT Superfast Broadband available.

Directions:
Proceeding into Sidbury on the A375 in a Southerly direction, continue just past the Church taking the second turning on your left into Bridge Street. Follow this lane over the stone bridge and turn immediately right. Deepway Farmhouse will then be found after 100 yds on your right hand side.
