A superbly finished country home in a peaceful, rural location. Set within approx. Five acres of land. four bedrooms, impressive orangery. Mature lawn and gardens, well stocked fishing lake, separate paddock plus a series of useful outbuildings.

Nestling in the folds of rural west Devon and situated within a small hamlet near the iconic landmark ‘church on the hill' of St Michael de Rupe, Higher Westcott is a handsome country home, improved and extended over the years by the present owners.

The current owners purchased the house around thirty-five years ago, have raised their family, and carried out extensive improvements during their time here. Situated on a leafy, country lane, the property itself is approached by a sweeping, gated, driveway, opening onto a generous parking area flanked by a level lawn and further lower area surrounded by high hedged boundaries ensuring privacy.

The rooms are well-proportioned and include the addition of the highly impressive ‘orangery', overlooking the rear gardens and grounds towards the delightful, picturesque fishing lake and beyond. This space is perfect for appreciating the afternoon and evening sun.

Other accommodation includes four first floor double bedrooms (master ensuite) together with large family bathroom. A 29' living room leads to the orangery and the reception rooms including a separate dining room. The kitchen/breakfast room incorporates an island unit and leads to the good-sized utility/hobbies room and ground floor shower room.

The house sits in around five acres of land in all, which includes a separate paddock, extensive lawned gardens interspersed with seating areas and large patio, centring on the well-stocked man-made fishing lake – surrounded with well-established planting, various decked areas, summer house and idyllic bridge.

A range of useful outbuildings include a store/workshop, adjacent to the utility room, a potting shed/garden store, and a further workshop/store both served by mains electricity and mains water.
