Country View 2020 Property of the Week: Stedcombe House, Axmouth, Devon

If you’re looking to escape the hustle and bustle of city life, then a move to Devon might be just what you need.

Devon is one of the most beautiful counties in England and is home to historic buildings, two breath-taking coastlines, two National Parks (Exmoor and Dartmoor) and five official Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It’s also home to the English Riviera, which encompasses a series of south-coast harbour towns including Torquay, Paington and Brixham.

If you’re tempted by the sound of that, then why not take a look at what Stedcombe House has to offer.

Stedcombe House is a magnificent Grade I listed William and Mary country house located in a prime position near the Devon/Dorset border with spectacular views over the Axe Valley.

The property was originally built in the late seventeenth century and has been lovingly restored as part of a three year restoration project by its current owner.

Much effort has been made to restore in keeping with its era. All rooms benefit from high ceilings and excellent proportions, and an abundance of elegant period features including panelling, beautiful chimneypieces and original shutters.

There’s plenty of room for your family and friends thanks to its extensive accommodation. There are eight bedrooms and five bathrooms, as well as five reception rooms allowing you ample space to entertain.

There’s also a three-bedroom lodge, which is ideal if you intend to have guests staying over the weekend. A stable block is included in the grounds, perfect for your horses or for storage.

In addition, this outstanding property is surrounded by 20 acres of grounds, which include parkland, three walled gardens, pasture and woodland. So there’s plenty to enjoy from long summer walks to fun family picnics.
