A fascinating period residence with beautifully proportioned, elegant accommodation and gardens and grounds of about 0.75 acre.

Situation.
Greenhayes House is located on the fringes of the attractive and desirable village of Kilmington which in turn is set amongst some of East Devon's most attractive countryside. Although conveniently positioned for the village, Greenhayes House has access to some beautiful country and woodland walks in the near vicinity. Kilmington is a popular village which has a range of amenities which include an excellent farm shop, two public houses, primary school, which is rated outstanding by Ofsted, ancient Parish Church, modern Baptist Church and village hall, as well as sporting facilities such as tennis courts and a cricket ground.
Kilmington lies approximately 2 miles away from the busy market town of Axminster which has an extensive range of amenities and many independent retailers/eateries including the River Cottage Kitchen and Deli which is owned by TV chef and good food campaigner Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall. Axminster also has a main line rail link to London Waterloo.

The bustling market town of Honiton is some 7 miles to the west and the renowned Colyton Grammar School, one of England's top mixed state schools, is some 6 miles distant. The World Heritage Jurassic Coastline at Lyme Bay lies approximately 7 miles to the south and Exeter, the county town of Devon, is some 26 miles to the west. Exeter has an excellent shopping centre, main line rail link to London Waterloo and express link to Paddington, international airport and M5 access.

The Property.
Greenhayes House is a fascinating attached period residence which is thought to have origins dating back to the mid to late Victorian era, however has considerably evolved over the years into the substantial and particularly attractive home we find today. Its imposing front façade boasts some handsome features such as the Gothic arched window, some of which are made from Beer Stone, drip moulds and unusual castellated roof, and it has a delightful southerly aspect over the gardens and grounds to the front.

Greenhayes House retains a wealth of character features, all of which aid in creating a delightful period ambience and the accommodation is spacious and well-proportioned. Features include panelled rooms, ornate cornicing and ceiling mouldings, flagstone floors, and worthy of particular mention is the stunning stair hall with its sweeping galleried staircase.

It has been the subject of a comprehensive programme of improvement in recent years which has included the addition of a glazed breakfast room and the conversion of the former garage which now provides a self contained bedroom suite. This is currently let out and provides a very useful income. Other key features include the converted cellar which serve a variety of uses and is currently set up as a TV room and office.

To the first floor there is a principal bedroom with a large en-suite shower room, four further bedrooms (three good sized doubles) and a family bath/shower room.

Gardens and Grounds.
Greenhayes House is approached over a long driveway which sweeps around to the front of the property to a gravelled area which provides parking for several vehicles. Adjacent to this is a substantial detached timber garage/implement store with two sets of high double doors and a timber chalet/studio which serves a variety of uses and could have conversion potential (subject to planning).

The gardens principally lie to the south of the house and are in the main lawned being surround by profusely stocked and well-established shrub beds. Further to the south is an orchard, productive kitchen garden and strategically positioned summer house which takes advantage of some delightful views over the Axe Valley.

To the rear of the house is a gravelled courtyard with a timber shed, vine clad greenhouse, some soft fruits, and a pedestrian gate onto Shute Road.

Directions.
From Honiton, proceed out of the town onto the A35 and continue on towards Axminster. After approximately seven miles turn right at the war memorial signposted Kilmington and continue up Shute Road. When you see the common on your right hand side proceed for approximately two hundred yards and the driveway to Greenhayes House will be found just after the white cottage on your left hand side.
