3 bedroom House located at Axminster - Guide Price of £ 675,000
Full Description:AN IMPOSING 19TH CENTURY PROPERTY FORMING PART OF A DELIGHTFUL COUNTRY MANSION WITH SPACIOUS ACCOMMODATION AND COUNTRY VIEWS LOCATED ON THE OUTSKIRTS OF THE MARKET TOWN OF AXMINSTER
Appleby is believed to date back to the late 1800 s, built as the North Wing to the main house. According to Axminster Heritage s Notable Dwellings list, the property is of Georgian origin however, around 1860 Old Park was created from what was previously known as Hill House.
Around 1866 it served as the home of Dame Emma Tullock, where she remained until 1903, and following the Second World War both wings were separated from the main house.
Under the current ownership the property has undergone extensive refurbishment with improvements including an excellent oak framed garage/car port with an office above (extremely versatile accommodation with potential for a variety of uses), a recently upgraded oil fired central heating boiler, tanking of the kitchen/ family room and a stonework and timber conservatory/entrance lobby with feature windows.
The property was designed with a Gothic influence in mind and plays host to a wide variety of intricate character features, most notable are its unusually high ceilings and beautiful stone mullion windows with feature leaded lights.
Appleby has proven to be a comfortable family home for over 20 years however, it would equally be well suited as an impressive country house retreat with potential also for a unique holiday letting experience.
The house is set in good sized sunny gardens and is conveniently located on the outskirts of the market town of Axminster with Lyme Regis just some four miles to the south.
Axminster is a bustling market town in the Axe Valley, surrounded by unspoilt countryside. It has a good selection of shops and leisure facilities and a main line railway station (Exeter - Waterloo). From here, the Jurassic Coast towns of Lyme Regis and Seaton are both about 6 miles away.
