Tiverton, UK, United Kingdom
Houndsmoor is a charming and spacious country house, set in a secluded location in the beautiful rolling countryside of Mid Devon. Dating from the mid-17th century, and refurbished in the late-19th century, the property is Grade II Listed and boasts plenty of period features, lending the accommodation character, and helping to create a comfortable, welcoming environment.
The accommodation is light and airy throughout, with neutral décor and plenty of exposed timber, large open fireplaces, flagstone and timber floors and cornicing to the ceilings. Entering the property you are greeted by a large entrance hall, while on the ground floor there are two large sitting rooms, a study, an attractive dining room and a sunny south-facing conservatory. The kitchen and breakfast room may require some updating, though there is an Aga in situ.
Upstairs there is a very good-sized master bedroom, with an en suite shower room, plus three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom.
The property boasts approximately three acres of grounds and gardens, with a long, winding lane leading to the house, and ample parking facilities, including a carport. The gardens are arranged in several individual areas, with a wide variety of hedgerow, mature trees, well-stocked flowerbeds and large lawned areas. Part of the garden has a stream running through it, while there is also a pond. The property also benefits from substantial outbuildings of stone construction, including the original open-fronted Linhay, which overlooks the stunning outdoor heated swimming pool. The other barns include a workshop, a separate shower room and changing room for the swimming pool, and a tractor barn with plenty of space for storage.
