A beautifully presented Grade II listed family home with approximately 2.5 acres on the fringe of the sought after village of Stockland.
Pondslake is situated on the fringe of the conservation village of Stockland, a much sought-after village located in the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Stockland has a thriving community with a well respected primary school, village hall, community public house and ancient Church of St Michael and All Angels.
About 3 miles to the South of Stockland is the village of Dalwood and this also has a community run shop and popular public house. Approximately 6 miles to the South West is the busy market town of Honiton which has a variety of shops including many antique shops, sports centre/swimming pool and mainline rail link to London (Waterloo). The Cathedral City of Exeter lies some 22 miles to the west with an excellent shopping centre, sport and leisure facilities, mainline rail link to London (Paddington), M5 access and international airport. The picturesque World Heritage Coastline at Lyme Bay, known as the Jurassic Coast, is about 9 miles to the south and is a popular destination with its dramatic cliffs and stunning coastal walks.
Pondslake has origins dating back to the mid 19th century and it has a very attractive double fronted dressed stone front façade with a steeply pitched roof with stone coping to the gable ends. The property has evolved greatly over the years with the addition of several extensions. All of which have created the spacious and very adaptable home we find today.
The accommodation retains a wealth of character features and this blends particularly well with the stunning modern garden room which gains superb views over the gardens and grounds. The hub of the house is the large country kitchen/dining room and there are two reception rooms, one of which has an inglenook replace and both have woodburners. Whilst to the first floor there are four bedrooms, the principal of which has a large en-suite bath/shower room. There is also a converted attic which makes an ideal studio with splendid views and this room could be used for a number of different requirements. Pondslake offers fantastic family accommodation in one of East Devons best villages and believe there will be a high degree of interest in this one.
Detached stone and slated garage building and this is currently used as a large workshop.
To the north west of the property is a very well planted orchard, vegetable garden, productive soft fruit cages and greenhouse, and this rises to a large paddock which also has field access. The more formal area of garden lies to the west and is a large sweeping area of lawn which is interspersed with profusely stocked shrub beds, whilst to the south is a terrace, swimming pool and very productive kitchen garden. To the west of the grounds is an enchanting area of woodland with many of the trees having been planted 30 years ago by the present owners & runs down to a tiny stream.
