Burrough Cleave is approached through high twin stone pillars and electric double iron gates over a sweeping driveway leading to a gravelled forecourt with a turning circle, providing parking for multiple vehicles and giving access to the integral double garage. The part-walled formal garden, a particular feature of this property, offers extensive lawned areas with mature shrub beds and specimen trees and features well-maintained mature topiary, numerous seating areas, a garden pond and a large paved terrace which is ideal for entertaining and al fresco dining. The gardens enjoy far-reaching views over the property’s 28.58 acres of grazing and the beautiful countryside beyond. There is also a lake within the land, as well as areas of woodland; all of which provide a haven for local flora and fauna. The property has the benefit of a number of outbuildings including a detached stable block with six loose boxes and an L-shaped brick-built barn. The property also benefits from a large 51 ft. x 32 ft. outbuilding and two external stores, suitable for a wide variety of uses.


The small hamlet of New Buildings lies to the north-west of Crediton and comprises a pretty collection of thatched cottages and farmhouses in some of Mid Devon's most picturesque countryside. The well-regarded village of Sandford, approximately 2.8 miles away, has a good range of amenities including a village hall, community shop, Post Office, historic church, pre-school, popular primary school and two pubs. The nearby busy market town of Crediton offers a wider range of amenities including a farmers’ market, supermarkets, local shops, a GP surgery, secondary schooling and a railway station on the Tarka Line. The historic university and cathedral city of Exeter provides a wide range of facilities including excellent shopping, dining, cultural, sporting and recreational pursuits, as well as mainline railway stations on the Waterloo and Paddington lines. Transport links are good: Copplestone station provides services to central London in less than three hours, whilst Exeter International Airport has a wide range of domestic and European flights.


From the hamlet of New Buildings, head north out of the village and take the right hand turn at the fork in the road, onto Southdown Hill. Almost immediately afterwards, turn right onto the lane and the property is located ahead.
