Full Property Details

Tucked away in a little-known location at the end of Blundells Avenue, this detached four-bedroom family house occupies a surprisingly generous plot extending to 0.83 acres of gardens and woodland.

The house is situated close to the highly regarded Blundells private school, tucked away from view, accessed via a private gated drive, shared with just two other properties. Once believed to be the stables to the neighbouring ‘Horsdon House’, converted, and subsequently extended by the current owners who have been in occupation for the last 32 years, this is now a well-proportioned four-bedroom home.

The grounds are of particular note, in all extending to just under an acre, having been very well tended over the years, and offering a decent expanse of level lawn for children’s games of football, ornate garden areas with mature borders, hard paved seating areas, and a very pretty courtyard to the rear of the house. A stream runs at the end of the garden (no danger of flooding), crossed by a footbridge to a copse at the other side. The copse backs onto the old railway line, along which there is a pleasant walk or bike ride away from the town, from which you can get easy access onto the canal towpath.

The owners have added a conservatory to the spacious reception hall, which creates a lovely spot from which to admire the garden. A cloakroom is found just inside the front door. The sitting room offers a tranquil spot to relax in, and with windows on three sides draws in plenty of light.

The kitchen breakfast room is well fitted with plenty of drawers and cupboards, and space for a dishwasher, washing machine, fridge freezer and an electric cooker. A door leads through to the rear lobby, off of which is a shower room, a door to the rear courtyard and at the end of the house a dining room. This dining room has worked well in the past as a fifth bedroom with the shower room being next to it. Large sliding doors open to the patio and garden. On the first floor are four bedrooms and a bathroom. The master bedroom is a particularly good size, with a bank of fitted wardrobes and as with all the rooms a lovely private outlook over the gardens. At the far end of the house is another good double room with built in wardrobes. The third and fourth bedrooms also both accommodate double beds and offer built in wardrobes. The bathroom offers a bath with an electric shower above, a WC and a wash basin.

This property is more about the outside space – you wouldn’t expect to find a garden of such a size so close to the town!

The gated drive is owned by the neighbouring property, Horsdon House, along with the initial section of the drive. At the back of the property is a double garage, and a gate leads through a pretty courtyard to the back door. A potting shed and log store will be found here, and it makes for a really lovely seating area. The drive continues past the neighbouring cottage, and gives access to a significant amount of parking, another large garage constructed of timber, and on towards the front of the house.

This garden is perfect for all – kids and dogs can run riot, and gardeners can keep themselves occupied with well stocked borders of established roses and numerous flowering plants and shrubs, and the magnolia is magnificent.

This property has been kept immaculately and is offered in great condition, but it is time for the next family to move in and make this their own wonderful home.

There is a good shopping centre in Tiverton which is a thriving market town and provides excellent educational facilities including Blundells Independent School for boys and girls with its associated Blundells Preparatory School. Also in the town is Petroc College of further education and Tiverton High School. There is also a popular Golf Course, sports complex, and a hospital.

There are excellent road and rail links nearby, with Tiverton Parkway rail station and the M5 located a few miles away in Sampford Peverell, with a regular bus service running to and fro.
