Period charm in wonderful grounds.

Powderham House is a charming period property, believed to date from the early 17th century, with later additions, which now provides comfortable and well-proportioned family accommodation. The house has been carefully and sympathetically refurbished and many period features remain including exposed beams (of good ceiling height) and open fireplaces. Powderham House has been enlarged and improved over the years and is now a home of immense character and extends in total to over 3000 ft. At the heart of the house is the open-plan kitchen/dining/family room featuring an AGA, integrated appliances and limestone flooring. The impressive, beamed drawing room has a large open fireplace with wood burning stove and a door to the terrace. There is an open fire in the family room and French windows open onto the sun terrace from both the dining room and the family room. On the first floor the main bedroom suite comprises an en suite bathroom and dressing room. Four further bedrooms are served by two bathrooms. EPC Rating F. The spacious barn/annexe (approximately 1000 sq ft) provides garaging for three cars, an office, games room with kitchenette and shower room, and a storeroom on the first floor.

This property has 1.57 acres of land.

Outside

Powderham House is approached via a pair of electric gates which open onto a brick-edged gravel drive, proving ample turning and parking for a number of cars. The front and rear gardens are predominantly laid to lawn with beds stocked with flowers and shrubs, several mature trees and yew hedges. A large south facing York stone sun terrace runs across the rear of the house. York stone steps lead to an area of lawn with shaped, well-stocked beds and a summerhouse. Beyond this is a less formal area, again predominantly laid to lawn with spring bulbs, an orchard and a mixture of mature trees. An extensive area of woodland runs along the front and side of the property. About 1.57 acres in total.
