Characterful, four bedroomed detached home in an idyllic rural location with good amenities, this property makes a perfect home for a family looking to live in rural Devon. Built in 2007 with great attention to detail the property provides the benefits of rural location and rustic character with the benefits of modern building techniques. Payhembury is a thriving village in the Kings School catchment and, with the M5 and A303 both easily accessible, provides a great base for those looking for country lifestyle with easy access to the West Country and beyond.
This property was built in 2007 to a very high specification, designed to be in keeping with the historic buildings it is nestled amongst. This respect for its rural location is evident from the moment you walk under the timber porch (which matches the neighbouring property), through an oaken front door and into the entrance hall. Attention to detail is apparent all around you: the hall, living room and downstairs WC all share engineered oak flooring; oak doors link the rooms providing a wonderfully rustic feel; and even functional elements such as the coat cupboard and water tank in the front hall are tidied away behind beautiful solid oak doors, whilst some of the radiators have aesthetically pleasing fitted casings. The modern, double glazing fitted throughout is in-character and wooden-framed.
The hall is the spine of the house, leading past the kitchen, stairs and downstairs WC to a spacious, welcoming living room. The living room has a wood-burning stove under a wooden lintel. It has plenty of light with large windows and double doors opening to both the kitchen and out into the garden. This configuration also allows the room to function as either a cosy front room (with doors closed) or a flowing entertaining space that incorporates the garden (with doors open).
The kitchen/dining room has a dark slate floor and plenty of space for a 6-seater dining table. The kitchen area is spacious, with bespoke, fitted oak units and worksurfaces and a rangemaster classic deluxe cooker. There is ample worksurface space, plenty of storage and light from windows on two walls. The room links through to a further utility room with an additional sink, space for washing machine and drier and side access to the property.
Stairs from the hall lead up to the four bedrooms split over two floors. Space isnt wasted and under-stairs storage with fitted oak doors are available on ground and first floor. The first-floor hosts two good-sized bedrooms, at opposite ends of a small landing. Both rooms have tasteful, built-in storage, and many windows, letting in lots of light. The primary bedroom has dual aspect windows and an en-suite. Off the first floor landing there is also a family bathroom (with both bath and shower) and stairs to the second floor which hosts two further bedrooms with gabled roofs and further fitted storage.
Outside, the garden is fenced on all sides and includes a lower, paved patio area and a raised lawn with gravelled seating area. A paved path leads across the lawn to the back gate, allowing access to the garage and additional parking for one car, located to the rear of the property.
The property is on mains water and electricity, has LPG central heating and wired in fibre broadband.

"This has been a fantastic place to bring up our young family, we have built strong friendships in this village and we love the community feel. Having the school, shop and park so close has made things so much easier, as well as the train station."
