A charming Grade II* Listed thatched home, with two additional cottages and substantial barns.

Old Barton House is a delightful Grade II* Listed home set in 1.9 acres within the popular Exe Valley. The property comprises a spacious house, currently used as two dwellings, with two further cottages and considerable barns and stables, all arranged in a courtyard layout.

The accommodation comprises well-formed reception rooms that flow very well. These rooms look out over the gardens and offer a dining room and drawing room. Above are four large bedrooms which are serviced by two bathrooms. Of particular note, is the Jacobean ceiling in the principal bedroom which has been carefully restored. There are also two sets of stairs for this floor.

Further accommodation is then provided by the North Wing which is currently let on an AST. This two bedroom cottage could also easily form part of the main house to provide more space if needed.

Netherexe Barn West is entered via a striking glass and timber-framed door leading to the reception hall. It contains an appealing sitting room, a well-arranged kitchen/breakfast room with access via double doors to the garden, a cloakroom and a utility room. Upstairs are three bedrooms which are serviced by two bathrooms.

The gardens for Netherexe Barn West are situated off the kitchen and are formed of a large terrace and a lawned area. This barn has the benefit of several useful outbuildings, including the store and the stables. There is also an area for parking several cars.

Netherexe Barn East is attached to Netherexe Barn West and has a kitchen, a sitting room with double doors onto the gardens and two bedrooms above, both having use of the family bathroom. This cottage is also currently let on an AST and is in need of updating.

This property has 1.9 acres of land.


The property also benefits from considerable barn spaces, comprising almost 4,000 square feet in total, helping to form the cobbled courtyard.

In total, the garden and grounds extend to approximately 1.9 acres and this is formed by various tranquil spaces. Surrounding Old Barton House are the gardens which are predominantly laid to lawn with a range of impressive trees and thriving flowerbeds.

The gardens then run down to the orchard which has a plethora of fruit trees.


Old Barton House is located in a sought-after position, within the rural village of Nether Exe, lying alongside the River Exe in the scenic Exe Valley. There are a huge array of picturesque footpaths and bridleway routes straight from the property, whilst the National Trust Killerton Estate sits to the East.

To the west is the popular village of Brampford Speke, whilst nearby Stoke Canon offers a wide range of day-to-day amenities, including a village shop, a community run public house and a further range of community led activities, a primary school and a Church.

Communication links are also good despite its rural setting, with easy access to the A396 between Exeter and Tiverton. The M5 is also just a short drive away, providing links to the A38 and Plymouth, the A30 to Cornwall and the South and Bristol and London to the North and East.

Regular rail services to London (Paddington) run from Exeter St David’s mainline station, taking just over 2 hours, whilst the International Airport at Exeter provides various international and domestic flights.

The Cathedral City of Exeter offers an extensive range of recreational, cultural and shopping facilities, including theatres, the RAMM museum, an arts centre, the Princesshay shopping development, John Lewis, and numerous independent shopping outlets, as well as open-air markets and various eateries and wine bars.

The area also provides access to a very good selection of both state and independent schooling options, including Stoke Canon C of E Primary School and Pre-School, Stoke Hill Junior School, St. James School and Exeter College, The Maynard, Exeter and Exeter Cathedral School.
