The Property
Wellens is a Grade II Listed late 18th century house of
great period ambiance which has been considerably
improved and extended by the present owners over recent years. This work has created the impressive period home we find today, which, coupled with some contemporary features, makes this a distinctive period home worthy of personal inspection by any discerning buyer.

Worthy of particular mention is the impressive 20' x
12'4'' vaulted dining/family room with its exposed cruck
beams and two double French doors opening onto the
terrace and garden. There is a delightful large reception
hall with an inglenook and log burner, a lovely welcoming
feature when coming into the property on a winter's day,
and two further reception rooms, all of which are well
proportioned with high ceilings and original windows.
The kitchen itself is comprehensively fitted and equipped
with an island unit, and is divided into two levels, the
higher level currently being used as a study area but
retaining features such as the old ceiling hooks.
The utility room was, until six years ago, the kitchen and
includes original features such as built-in cupboards and
an Aga.

There are many other period features such as large
shuttered sash and some older leaded light windows, a
period sweeping staircase and as mentioned, high ceilings,
all of which combine to make Wellens a light, roomy and
lovely family home.

Gardens and Grounds
Wellens stands in gardens and grounds of approximately
0.75 of an acre in which there is a heated swimming pool
measuring approximately 11m x 5m, and a partly walled
kitchen garden where there is a greenhouse and a number
of fruit trees, as well as a garage building.

The property is approached from the lane, to a large
gravelled parking and turn around area with space for
numerous vehicles. The gardens immediately adjoining
the house create a lovely colourful, most apt and mature
setting and are separated from the lane by a high stone
wall. There are areas of sweeping lawn as well as shrub,
plant and flower beds. Immediately adjoining the dining
room on the south side is a large paved terrace.
Lawns lead through to the heated swimming pool and in
this area there is a useful timber garden shed housing the
heat pump as well as a timber summerhouse.

The gardens then run eastwards with a slight slope to a
productive kitchen garden area with a number of fruit
trees and at the bottom double gates lead to a further
vehicular access and where there is a detached garage
building. In all the grounds extend to approximately 0.75
of an acre.

Situation
Wellens is situated in the Blackdown Hills Area of
Outstanding Natural Beauty, some 5 miles east of the
bustling market town of Honiton.

The property is set amongst some of East Devon's most
glorious countryside in the hamlet of Broadhayes and
stands in the country, yet in a convenient and accessible
location approximately 2 miles from the highly desirable
village of Stockland. Stockland has a Primary School, the
ancient and pretty Parish Church of St Michael's and All
Angels and active Village Hall community. There are
some delightful walks which emanate from the front door.
About 3 miles to the South of Stockland is the village of
Dalwood and this 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
renowned Colyton Grammar School, one of England's
top mixed state schools, is situated about 9 miles away.
The Cathedral City of Exeter lies some 22 miles to the
west with an excellent shopping centre, sport and leisure
facilities, M5 access and an 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.

Taunton, 17 miles to the north, is easily accessible by
road with hourly fast train services to London Paddington
and Bristol.
