An exceptional country home with a two bedroom annexe, set in a popular East Devon location.

Great Halls is thought to be around 500 years old and the more recent part is about 300 years old. The original dwelling was a tied farmer's cottage and the remainder of the house was added later. The accommodation has been very well maintained, with double glazing throughout, featuring highly attractive period features including original fireplaces, ceiling cornicing and sash windows. The ground floor has three spacious, flexible reception rooms including the well-proportioned drawing room with its open fireplace and bespoke fitted shelving. Double doors lead to the conservatory, which opens out to the wonderful rear courtyard via French doors. There is also a sitting room with an impressive brick-built fireplace, fitted with a contemporary wood burning stove, as well as a separate formal dining room. At the rear, the kitchen has a good range of modern fitted units with granite work surfaces, a central island and Bosch appliances including an integrated dishwasher, Fischer and Paykel fridge/freezer, microwave and pantry cupboard. There is an adjoining dining area with a dual aspect, opening onto the courtyard via impressive bifold doors, creating a fabulous seamless indoor to outdoor living space. Upstairs, there are four bedrooms and an office, which could be used as a fifth bedroom if required. The principal bedroom has an en suite shower room, while there are two further en suite bath or shower rooms. There is an additional shower room on the ground floor.

The property benefits from an annexe called Halls Loft which provides a fully-equipped kitchen and sitting room, two bedrooms with one en suite shower room and a family bathroom.

There is also the possibility to purchase the five additional barn conversions in the complex, along with the house and Halls Loft. Please see the separate listing for details.
