The Tithe Barn is one of eight properties at Blackheath Court which was originally part of the Powderham Estate. Converted from farm buildings in 1985, the properties now offer attractive accommodation with character in a superb setting. Proximity to Exminster and the facilities therein (golf course, pub, shop etc). 2.5 miles away. Regular bus services into Exeter from the end of the lane (250 metres away). Two buses run every hour. Features include two lovely light reception rooms, the dining room having two sets of double doors opening onto the fabulous south westerly facing gardens which are well established, mainly laid to lawn with a patio and various trees and shrubs. There are four bedrooms, two of which have ensuite rooms, oil central heating, double glazing and residential facilities including a lovely sun terrace, ideal for barbecues and a tennis court. The washing machine, dishwasher and Rangemaster cooker are included. The property is being sold with no onward chain.


Blackheath Court is situated half-way between the villages of Kenton and Exminster. Kenton is home to Powderham Castle, the historic home of the Earl of Devon, thought to have been built at the turn of the 15th Century. Both villages offer numerous facilities including shops, schools, pubs and churches as well as benefitting from easy access to Exeter/Dawlish, the A38, A30 and M5.


From Exeter city centre proceed along Topsham Road (A3015) to the Countess Wear roundabout. Take the third exit onto Bridge Road and carry along this road turning left at the roundabout onto Sannerville Way ( A379) heading towards Dawlish. Pass the turnings for Exminster and approximately one mile past the Swans Nest roundabout, take a sharp right at the crossroads onto Exminster Hill where Blackheath Court can be found on the left. The Tithe Barn can be found within the Blackheath Court estate on your left.
