Property Description

A most attractive and unique four bedroomed detached country residence occupying a private and yet readily accessible rural position, set in lovely large gardens and grounds, the whole extending to just over an acre. EPC: E


The sale of West Ley affords prospective purchasers a rare opportunity to acquire an impressive and totally unique country residence, which is believed to now come to the market for only the second time since it was originally converted in the 1980's. Conceived and created by the previous owner who had a passion for historic architecture, the property provides character four bedroomed accommodation centred upon a superb large vaulted dining hall. Many of the architectural features incorporated into the house are believed to have been sourced from the continent, affording an historic feel yet without the restrictions of listing. The layout of the accommodation may also afford the potential for dual occupancy, subject to any necessary planning/building regulation consents. Whilst the accommodation would now benefit from updating in some areas, the opportunity undoubtedly exists to create an exceptional family home.
Overlooking an attractive Mediterranean style enclosed courtyard, the house benefits from extensive private parking to the side and rear, with a garage and lovely large gardens and grounds. West Ley extends in total about 1.04 Acres.

Despite its peaceful rural position West Ley enjoys easy access to the neighbouring villages, towns and main routes of communication. Nearby the popular and bustling market town of South Molton provides a good range of everyday services including shops, bank, recreational facilities, primary and secondary schooling. From South Molton the A361 North Devon Link Road provides easy access to Barnstaple, Tiverton and the M5 motorway (Junction 27). There are rail stations on the Barnstaple to Exeter (Tarka) line at Kings Nympton and Umberleigh, whilst mainline intercity rail links are available at Tiverton Parkway. The A377 provides a link to the cathedral city and county town of Exeter, with international airports at Exeter and Bristol.
West Ley is well situated to take advantage of the wealth of recreational activities available in the area including horse riding, cycling, fishing on the rivers Mole and Taw, hunting, shooting and golf courses at High Bullen, High Bickington, Tiverton and Barnstaple. To the north the Exmoor National Park offers beautiful moorland scenery with many foot and bridle paths, whilst the spectacular North Devon coast with its pretty villages and popular sandy beaches of Instow, Saunton Sands, Croyde Bay, Putsborough and Woolacombe is only about 45 minutes' drive away.

The property is approached via a right of way over a shared entrance drive, with a private spur off leading to a large parking area to the side of the house. From here a wooden gate leads through into a further parking area situated adjoining the rear elevation. The house overlooks an enclosed courtyard garden, surrounded by an attractive stone wall, approached through double wrought iron gates and affording an almost Mediterranean feel, with gravelled and paved sitting out areas and raised beds. A pretty timber and brick lean-to outbuilding contains the equipment for the private water supply. Doors from the conservatory open out onto a paved patio area, overlooking the entrance drive and flanked with flower beds.
A single garage, 5.76m x 2.48m, is situated adjacent to the rear parking area, with a tarmacadam drive continuing past to provide access to an elevated concreted yard area with two timber garden sheds and raised shrub bed. The rear door out from the utility has steps leading up to the parking, adjacent to which is a timber decked sitting out area (decking dilapidated) beneath a vine covered timber pergola. A path leads to an enclosed rear garden laid mainly to lawn, enjoying excellent privacy and containing two productive apple trees.
Adjacent to the entrance drive are attractive large lawned grounds, interspersed with a variety of native tree species, including oak, horse chestnut, sycamore, beech and mountain ash, with an adjoining small copse. West Ley extends in total to about 1.04 Acres.

Accommodation The accommodation is entered through an impressive oak studded front door via a pretty traditional porch with a slate floor. This leads into the entrance hall which is timber panelled to dado height, with a parquet style floor and stone carved wall recess. A door and steps lead up into the magnificent main reception room, a baronial style dining hall, enjoying a double aspect with leaded windows incorporating stained glass heraldic shields, high vaulted ceilings and a slate flagstone floor. A large feature carved stone fireplace contains a wood burning stove in a brick surround. A door leads to a study with a spiral staircase to the first floor and situated off the study is a conservatory with patio doors leading out to the gardens.
A further door from the entrance hall leads into the kitchen, which contains a fitted antique base cupboard with a granite top incorporating an underset sink with a mixer tap. Further range of modern fitted base units with work surfaces over, matching wall cupboards, electric cooker point and tiled floor. From the kitchen a door and steps lead up into the utility room which also has a tiled floor and a door to outside rear. A further door leads into a lovely large character sitting room with exposed ceiling beams and joists, a tiled floor and double doors out to the courtyard. A fireplace recess in a carved stone surround houses a wood burning stove. Stairs lead up to the first floor, adjacent to which is situated a cleverly concealed shower room.
The first floor is divided into three main parts, with separate stairs leading up to each. From the dining hall, an arched opening and antique timber steps lead up to a landing area providing access to the large main bedroom and bathroom, together with a further double bedroom with an en-suite shower room. From the main bedroom a feature stone arched window opening enjoys impressive views over the dining hall. An airing cupboard on the landing contains the hot water cylinder and the Worcester gas-fired boiler for the central heating and domestic hot water. A walk-in cupboard is also situated off the landing. Above the sitting room is a large, partially below eaves, bedroom with a dormer style window overlooking the courtyard, whilst the spiral staircase from the study leads up to a further bedroom, which in turn has steps up to a below eaves bathroom.
For approximate room dimensions and layout please refer to the enclosed floorplan.

Services & Outgoings Mains electricity. Private water supply. Drainage to a shared private system. Bulk LPG central heating. North Devon Council Tax (Band F), together with the usual service and environmental charges.
