Farm Cottage has been the subject of a comprehensive programme of improvement over the past decade and is found in very good order with great care and attention given to the fittings and overall finish. The accommodation is light with large sash windows in many of the rooms. Farm Cottage is one of the largest properties at Widworthy Court with more than 100 square metres of floor area.
The entrance, shielded from the weather, is under an imposing clock tower and leads into a hall off which there is a downstairs cloakroom and under-stair cupboard. The large kitchen/dining room is fitted with good quality John Lewis kitchen units and kitchen island, Bosch induction hob and Zanussi Oven. A built-in cupboard provides space for a washing machine and dryer. The good-sized sitting room has a modern Contura woodburning stove; this room has access to the private garden.
On the first floor there are three double bedrooms, two of which are very large with substantial built-in wardrobe space. There is a modern shower room with walk-in shower and under-floor heating. The rooms have delightful views over the fountain courtyard, and other green spaces on the Widworthy Court estate.
Water heating is by a modern pressurised cylinder and the timed electric heating uses ADAX glass fronted heaters. There is secondary double glazing in all rooms except for the Kitchen/dining room which has modern split-level shutters. The cottage has a Nuaire positive input ventilation (PIV) system installed in the roof space.
Farm Cottage has a paved garden adjoining an attractive courtyard. In addition to 10 acres of beautiful grounds, facilities include a tennis court and a private leisure centre containing a swimming pool, sauna and gymnasium. There is private parking for Farm Cottage and ample visitor parking.
Farm Cottage forms part of a development of apartments and mews style cottages at Widworthy Court, a Grade II listed Georgian mansion built by G S Repton Esq. and Sir Edward Marwood Elton in 1830. This prominent house is set in extensive gardens and grounds in a sheltered position enjoying lovely country views. The property is surrounded by broadleaf woodland and well laid-out gardens and is located on the edge of the village of Wilmington (in the parish of Widworthy), which has a public house and pretty Church of St Cuthbert which dates from the 14th century.
The market town of Honiton is approximately 3 miles distance and has a variety of independent shops, including many antique shops, twice weekly market, sports centre/swimming pool and main line rail link to London Waterloo.
The Cathedral City of Exeter is some 18 miles to the west with an excellent shopping centre, sports and leisure facilities, main line express rail link to London Paddington, M5 access and international airport. The World Heritage Jurassic Coast at Lyme Bay is about 8 miles to the south, with the popular town of Lyme Regis, with its famous Cobb, being about 12 miles to the south east.
Widworthy Court has an in-house residents management company: Widworthy Court Management Ltd. All residences have the benefit of a 999-year lease from 1998 and own a share of the freehold. There is a monthly service charge of approximately £319 (for this property in 2021). This is not just an administrative charge; it includes buildings insurance, maintenance of the shared grounds and communal areas, use of all the shared facilities including the leisure centre.
