From Teignmouth take the A381 towards Kingsteignton and Newton Abbot and, upon reaching the Bishopsteignton village sign, take the first turning on the right hand side into Church Road. Continue up the hill, passing the church on the right and proceed on to Shute Hill. Turn right, immediately before the Ring of Bells public house into Radway Hill, then bear right into Radway Street. Continue on this road up over the brow of the hill then take the left turn. The property will be found on the left handside before the Vineyard entrance. Drive over the cattle grid onto the shared driveway. Follow the driveway around until you see the property on the left and parking on the right.
Whidborne Court is situated in a quiet lane next to the village's very own Old Walls Vineyard. The village of Bishopsteignton is set above and beside the beautiful Teign Estuary. The village has a strong sense of community and many local amenities to include a post office and chemist, doctors surgery, village store, community centre, village hall, three pubs, hotel, a local real ale brewery, a vineyard, a garden centre and two churches. Additionally there is a well-regarded primary school and busy services to nearby secondary schools. The seaside town of Teignmouth is around two-miles away with its promenade, sandy beaches and wide range of shops and amenities to include a mainline railway station offering a link to London Paddington, an arts quarter and various cafes and restaurants. The picturesque village of Shaldon is a similar distance away with the South West Coast Path beyond. Teignmouth golf course is also only a couple of miles away. Good accessibility is enjoyed to the A380, making for a fast commute to the Cathedral City and county town of Exeter with its international airport, the Princesshay shopping centre, fine dining and various private and public schools etc.
Offering just under 2500 sq ft of accommodation, Whidborne Court is a fine example of a beautifully converted Grade II Listed barn conversion presented in a very stylish and immaculate way throughout and is located in a quiet country lane right next door to the village's very own Old Walls Vineyard. Inside offers heaps of classic character features including exposed beams and deep window sills a plenty!
Converted around 20 years ago, Whidborne Court is the jewel in a small and rather lovely development of period barns, once belonging to the adjoining manor house. Located on the very edge of the village, the property enjoys a quiet spot and some truly stunning views of the river Teign and surrounding countryside from the secluded garden.
From the moment you walk through the front gates, across the private courtyard and in through the beautiful timber entrance door, you are welcomed by the huge open plan kitchen/dining/family room, which is beautifully fitted out. Flowing from this room is a sizable reception hall/library, which is very much a room in itself and has an adjoining utility room and ground floor shower room. Leading from the reception hallway is a stunning sitting room with an impressive and extensive stone fireplace with bread oven feature and an eye-catching vaulted ceiling with exposed beams. The room also has a wonderful mezzanine area that is perfect for a spot of quiet reading and a study under which can be closed off from the sitting area with double doors.
On the first floor, the lovely character feeling continues, with plenty of exposed timbers and vaulted ceilings. There are three bedrooms, the master being an exceptional room with a full height glazed window and impressive timber work, along with an en suite and walk-in dressing room. There is also a family bathroom on this level, complete with separate shower and roll-top bath.
To the front of the property is a private courtyard garden that is paved and fenced to make it child and pet proof. Through the gates and across the driveway you will find some steps leading up to the 'secret garden' that is the remaining area of garden. You will be greeted with an extensive lawn area surrounded by trees and attractive hedging which allows this area to be totally private and secluded. There are several seating areas for you to sit and soak up the views over the estuary and surrounding rolling countryside.
The property has a larger than average garage with additional storage at the rear. There is parking for 5/6 cars.
