Highfield House is conveniently located close to the heart of the popular town of Axminster and sits only half a mile or so from the Market Square and Minster Green. Axminster is an ancient market town which is located in the heart of East Devon and surrounded by some of the county's most attractive rolling countryside.
It has a thriving community with the town centre being grouped around the handsome Church of St Mary's and the Minster Green and a comprehensive range of shops and facilities. Axminster is still home to many independent retailers, galleries and boutiques. There are also the usual multiples which include supermarkets, sport and leisure facilities and eateries which include The River Cottage Canteen which is owned by TV chef and good food campaigner Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall. Axminster benefits from a main line rail link to London Waterloo and has good road links via the A35 and to the beautiful East Devon coastline.
The World Heritage Jurassic Coast is located about 7 miles to the south and is a popular destination for tourists looking to enjoy the dramatic scenery and beautiful country and coastal walks over the myriad of footpaths in the near vicinity. Exeter, the County Town and Cathedral City, is approximately 26 miles to the west and has an excellent shopping centre, main line rail link and international airport.
Highfield House is a detached Edwardian residence which has a particularly handsome front façade with brick and rendered elevations under a tiled roof.
The property retains a wealth of period features which include some stained glass, a Minton floor to the entrance hallway and original fireplaces, however has been in recent years the subject of a comprehensive programme of improvement which has resulted in creating the light and well-appointed home we find today. There is now a delightful blend of both modern and character features which work particularly well and give Highfield House a warm and welcoming feel. The accommodation is well-proportioned and very adaptable in its layout, benefitting from a ground floor bedroom suite, and has in the past been a successfully run Bed and Breakfast.
Highfield House is approached from Lyme Road to a large parking area, adjoining which are shrub beds. The gardens principally lie to the rear and have been designed with low maintenance in mind. There are three secluded patio areas as well as several borders containing a variety of plants and shrubs. Timber framed summer house.
