Property description

The Courtyard sits in the former grounds of Thorndon House, designed and built in 1840 by Isambard Kingdom Brunel, and offers a rare opportunity to acquire a spacious property set in an absolutely outstanding position with virtually every room enjoying stunning near and far uninterrupted, elevated countryside views across the Culm valley.

The light filled accommodation is formed of spacious reception rooms which look out over the garden and beyond. The magnificent sitting room benefits from numerous sets of French doors leading out to gardens and the inner courtyard. There is also a large dining room adjacent to the kitchen. This kitchen is again designed to take advantage of the wonderful views and has two sets of French doors to the courtyard.

The accommodation is completed by a bedroom wing on the southern flank which provides a spacious principal bedroom with en suite bathroom, an additional bedroom with en suite bathroom, three further bedrooms with wash basins, a family bathroom and a separate wet room. In common with the reception rooms, all of the bedrooms have private access via French doors out to and overlooking the gardens and grounds or to the inner courtyard, as does the main bathroom.

The Courtyard is situated in a wonderful position
on the fringes of Rewe village, which lies on the River Culm in the Exe Valley. The immediate area offers many footpaths and bridle ways with a variety of walks from the property, either to the River Exe and popular village of Brampford Speke to the west, or the River Culm and the National Trust Killerton Estate to the east. The Exe Valley is popular with cyclists and there are many opportunities for fishing on the nearby rivers Culm and Exe. The nearby village of Stoke Canon has a good range of day-to-day amenities including a church, shop, primary school and community-run public house along with a range of community activities. Though in a rural location, the village lies on the A396, the main road between Exeter and Tiverton. The historic city of Exeter, the regional capital of the South West, boasts great business facilities together with open air markets, restaurants, cafés and wine bars. The city is well served with a good range of leisure and cultural amenities, including theatres, museums, galleries and cinemas and substantial shopping facilities.

Communication links are good, with the M5
accessible at Exeter, Cullompton or Tiverton providing links to the A38 to Plymouth, or the A30 to Cornwall to the South, and Bristol and London to the North and East. There are regular rail services to central London from Exeter in just over 2 hours. Exeter International Airport provides an ever-increasing number of domestic and international flights.

The area offers access to a good selection of state schools, including Stoke Canon C of E Primary School and Pre-School, Stoke Hill Junior School, St. James School and Exeter College, as well as to a number of renowned independent schools including The Maynard, Exeter and Exeter Cathedral School.

The Courtyard is approached off a drive, the first part of which is shared, and then on through to a rear courtyard parking area providing parking for multiple vehicles from where the property itself is accessed.

The garden is very well stocked and enjoys the magnificent views over the neighbouring rural countryside, including the meandering River Culm below the house and Killerton. The gardens are predominantly located on the eastern and southern sides of the property and include large expanses of level lawn with numerous seating areas, a number of well stocked flower and shrub borders and vegetable and herb gardens.

A further area of garden is available by seperate
negotiation. This extends to approximately 0.3
acres and is formed of a lawned area, orchard
and outbuilding. This open fronted store measures approximately 58ft by 22ft.
