Occupies a large plot
The Warren is an impressive detached house, set down a private drive in beautiful gardens of approximately an acre, in a sought-after location in the village of West Hill, on the edge of the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The current owners have lived at the property for 17 years and during that time they have greatly improved it by extending; including adding a conservatory, a master bedroom suite and knocking through from the living room to the library, which has helped to create a spacious and flexible environment with welcoming accommodation.
On the ground floor the lobby/coats enters into a hall, with stairs leading to the drawing room on the upper level, a highly attractive living and entertaining space, with a built-in stove, a dual aspect and sliding glass doors opening onto a balcony overlooking the gardens. Back on the ground floor, the large kitchen and breakfast room has fitted, bespoke, locally handmade units with granite worktops and integrated appliances. There is plenty of space for a family dining table in the breakfast room. Sliding glass doors open out to the gardens and French doors lead into the pleasant conservatory. There are four generous-size double bedrooms on the ground floor, all featuring fitted storage, including the master, with its en suite bathroom, plus a further bedroom with an en suite shower room. Upstairs there is an additional double bedroom, plus a mezzanine library/sitting area and an office, which could be a sixth bedroom if required.
The Warren is located in the Woodland Village of West Hill, two miles southwest of Ottery St Mary. West Hill has a village store within striking distance of the house, a thriving village hall, nursery, NHS Dentist, well-regarded primary school, fuel garage, hairdresser and a British Legion building (open to all) which has a bar, skittles alley and a weekly cinema night. A further selection of necessary everyday amenities can be found in Ottery St Mary, including a variety of shops, restaurants and cafés, a supermarket and a good selection of schools. King’s School in particular has an excellent reputation, graded ‘outstanding’ by OFSTED in it’s last two inspections. The A30 is nearby, offering easy access to the popular city of Exeter, and the M5, while the magnificent Devon coastline is just 20 minutes drive away.
The Warren occupies a plot of approximately an acre. The house is approached via a long private driveway, which passes attractive gardens to the front of the house, where there is a sizeable parking area and a double garage. The gardens to the rear provide a wonderful setting in which to relax, with pristine lawns and paved seating terraces, established shrubs and a number of towering trees providing shade and a sense of peace and seclusion. Within the gardens is a greenhouse, a garden chalet with power and light (approx. 6.37×2.64m) and a tool shed.
