Dating in part from the 18th century, Wisteria House is a sensitively-converted former coaching inn offering flexible accommodation arranged over three floors and combines the amenities of modern living, including triple glazed sash windows with wooden frames, with a wealth of retained character features.
The ground floor accommodation is accessed from a welcoming entrance hall and briefly comprises a generous-size dual aspect drawing room with wooden flooring and French doors to the gardens; and a spacious front aspect sitting room with a gas fired stove. There is a large family room with a parquet floor, window seating, a recently-fitted full length window and a fireplace with a gas fired stove; plus a well proportioned dual aspect dining room opening into a good size kitchen. The kitchen offers a range of fitted units with modern integrated appliances and garden access. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a fitted utility room with a cloakroom and a neighbouring boot room with garden access.
On the first floor the property offers a spacious dual aspect office, a large dual aspect master bedroom with built-in storage and three further well-proportioned bedrooms, together with a family bathroom and a family shower room. The propertys remaining bedrooms can be found on the second floor, as well as a study and a further family shower room.
Wisteria House is accessed from the road over a large cobbled area to the walled north garden where coaches would enter and park during the propertys time as a coaching inn. Professionally designed, the north garden now incorporates an area of level lawn, paved terrace areas and a further area of garden accessed via some steps: ideal for entertaining and al fresco dining. A second low-maintenance garden to the south features gravelled areas with mature shrubs and also offers ample opportunities for entertaining.
Bradninch offers an excellent selection of day-to- day amenities including a village store with Post Office, recreational clubs and a popular primary school and benefits from a regular bus service connecting with the nearby country town of Cullompton to the north and Exeter to the south, which offers a wider range of amenities. The surrounding countryside offers numerous rural pursuits: the nearby Blackdown Hills are designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, while the National Parks of Dartmoor and Exmoor together with the north and south Devon coastlines are all within driving distance.
The cathedral city of Exeter, approximately 10.4 miles away, is the most thriving city in the county and offers a wide choice of cultural activities including theatres, the RAMM museum, an arts centre and a wealth of good restaurants and shopping such as John Lewis and a Waitrose supermarket. There are several primary and secondary schools, both state and independent, whilst Exeter University is recognised as one of the leading universities in the country.
The M5 motorway at Exeter provides 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 London Paddington from Whimple station and Exeter International Airport provides an ever-increasing number of domestic and international flights including daily flights to London City.
The area offers access to a good selection of state schools, including The Duchy School Bradninch in the town (rated Outstanding by Ofsted), Exeter College and Cullompton Community College. Renowned independent schools in the area include Blundells, The Maynard, the Exeter School and Exeter Cathedral School.
Leave the M5 at Junction 28 and follow signs into the centre of Cullompton. Proceed along the High Street and at the roundabout, take the second exit, signposted for Bradninch. Continue, and Wisteria House can be found on the left hand side at the bottom of the hill when entering the village, just before the road bends to the right.Read all
