NEW PROPERTY: Approached through stone pillars and down a sweeping tree lined drive, The Stone House is a lavishly presented, wisteria adorned stone cottage in beautifully landscaped gardens situated in the heart of rolling East Devon countryside.
The house has carefully designed modern day comforts with character features including oak flooring, stone mullion windows and feature fire places which are complimented by many antiques, ornate period furnishings and pieces of fine artwork.
The accommodation is both elegant and well-proportioned with many rooms enjoying views over the walled rose garden, manicured lawns and wild flower meadow beyond. French doors from the lounge and dining room lead out to the patio terraced garden with its ample seating area, garden table and chairs giving guests the opportunity to make the most of the tranquil setting and charming gardens.
A feature of the house includes a master bedroom with an ornate and striking 17th Century four poster bed offering a sense of grandeur from a bygone age. An adjoining annexe incorporates the 5th bedroom with a separate living area and kitchenette making this a perfect choice for family groups or friends wishing to holiday together.
A very imposing cottage built in the midst of beautiful land running towards the sea in Devon countryside. The nearby village of Axmouth, with its traditional thatched cottages and popular village pubs, is at the upper end of the Axe Estuary. Follow the river down to the harbour which is home to a number of small local fishing and pleasure boats as well as being popular with paddle boarders. A 15 minute drive takes you into Dorset and historic Lyme Regis with its family friendly sandy beach and the famous Cobb harbour.
The Stone House is perfectly located to enjoy the very best of East Devon with its pretty seaside towns and beautiful beaches on a stunning part of the Jurassic Coast.
