Full Property Details

Higher Dayles enjoys a blissfully peaceful, rural setting overlooking its own delightful gardens and grounds with some lovely views to the beautiful surrounding countryside. Whilst situated in this rural setting, the property lies only 3 miles from Bampton, a charming country town with a good range of amenities including some lovely shops, eateries, primary school and doctors surgery. The larger market town of Tiverton lies 10 miles to the south with dual carriageway access to Junction 27 of the M5 motorway and Tiverton Parkway mainline station which provides regular intercity services to London (Paddington 2 hours). The whole area is well known for its outstanding natural beauty with Exmoor National Park just a few miles to the north and the beaches of the beautiful North Devon coast are only a 40 minute drive.

Higher Dayles is an attractive, south facing period property surrounded by beautiful landscaped gardens with a pretty pond and paddocks, together with a range of stables and outbuildings and extending in all to approximately 7.7 acres. The original cottage is thought to date back to Saxon times, yet in the Victorian era it was burnt down and re-built with only the inglenook fireplace and the current secondary staircase remaining. The spacious ground floor accommodation comprises a sitting room with the original inglenook fireplace with bread oven and wood burning stove. There are three further reception rooms, the dining room, study and the delightful garden room with a beautiful outlook over the pond. The kitchen has double doors leading out to the south facing front terrace, a range of fitted units, dishwasher and a Sandyford range cooker. Leading off the kitchen is the breakfast/utility room, cloakroom, store room and a useful lean-to porch.

On the first floor there are three bedrooms, the master bedroom with a dressing room with fitted cupboards, a wash basin, and door to the "Jack and Jill" bathroom with freestanding bath and seperate shower cubicle. All the bedrooms have beautiful south facing views over the gardens and surrounding countryside.

The gardens and grounds are a particularly lovely aspect of the property and provide a most attractive and secluded setting. Immediately to the front of the house, there is a delightful south facing terrace with a pergola roof, ideal for al fresco living in the warmer months. The gardens and grounds comprise a pretty pond with a decked seating area, lawns, vegetable garden with garden shed and by the pond is a bbq area with den. Equestrian facilities include a lunge arena, a row of 3 loose boxes with tack room and wood store attached, and a further 2 loose boxes with a store and open fronted tractor store attached. There are three paddocks all with post and rail fencing.

The property is approached by a private track to a five bar gate that opens into the parking area offering space for numerous vehicles. Potential for construction of a garage or carport subject to relevant consents.
