    LOCATIONTower View is a 5 bedroomed house nestled in 5 acres of land and gardens with barn and internal stables on the edge of Chittlehamholt village. Having no immediate neighbours, the property is not overlooked and enjoys stunning views across the valley. Chittlehamholt is 30 minutes drive from the beach at Instow, similar drive to Exmoor and just 20 minutes will take you into the market town of Barnstaple. The City of Exeter is 45 minutes drive away and the link road at South Molton taking you to the M5 just 20 minutes away. The village enjoys a shop with groceries, local meat and bread and stamps on sale. The excellent village 15th century thatched pub, is just an easy 5 minute stroll away from the house with Highbullen Hotel and Country Club providing golf, swimming pool, gym, exercise classes and drink and dining facilities just a 10 minute walk away.ACCOMMODATIONOn entering Tower View through the porch, you enter into a delightful, double aspect sitting room enjoying views across the fields to the woodland beyond. This room has a recently installed 5kw Woodwarm Gem multi fuel stove set on a slate hearth and within a sandstone fireplace. A set of stairs rises to the first floor. A door opens into the utility room and kitchen, both having numerous floor and wall cupboards. A slate work surface is found in the kitchen as well as a large double pantry cupboard, a white one and a half bowl ceramic sink unit with matching mixer tap set into the slate work surface and space for two Range Cookers, both with stainless steel extractor hoods and splash backs. A stable door exits from the utility to the garden. Passing through a glazed door, you enter into a lounge with another Woodwarm 7kw multi-fuel stove which again sits on a slate base, the feature wall behind it being decorated with floor to ceiling facing bricks. This room enjoys a South facing window with a door opening onto the back garden and a second door opening onto the front garden.

This bedroom also has a large en-suite shower room with large white shower, basin, wc, ladder radiator and a very large double airing cupboard. This bedroom has 2 large double, fitted, glass fronted wardrobes. A separate flat used to exist in this house with the former owners and although this has been incorporated into the current accommodation by the current owners, this property readily lends itself to having a separate annex should the need arise.OUTSIDE The gardens have been copiously planted with beautiful trees, shrubs and plants and surround the whole property on all sides. The garden also benefits from dog proof fencing all round. In the front drive and to the side of the house, there is a double garage with a newly fitted roof which has both power and light, an up and over double door and also a separate courtesy door. Proceeding from the back of the house across the south facing back garden, a gate provides access to a separate drive which runs from the double gated entrance from the lane right up to the front of the barn. The large yard provides copious hard standing and a good turning circle when towing a trailer or double axle caravan or boat. This also provides parking for any caravan, boat, trailer, horse lorry and many cars.The barn, entered via double doors, sits off this yard and provides 4 internal stables (12’x12’) which face each other with another 12’ x 34’ storage area for hay, horse bedding, horse rug racks and there is also a sink with running water and floor and wall cupboards. This barn has both power and light and a damp proofed concrete floor throughout. Two of the stables have rubber matting laid over the concrete and these two stables also benefit from auto-drinkers. As the central passageway is 10’ wide a vehicle can reverse right down the centre of the barn to the rear. There is a further single stable door at the far end of the barn providing variable and a good flow of fresh air for horses. Leaving the house from the west side and crossing the west garden, a gate provides access to a further area where vegetables can be grown but also provides an area for a seat where beautiful long-distance countryside views can be enjoyed. Around the corner is a newly fitted poly tunnel (15’x15’) with two raised beds and plenty of staging inside. In addition to this there is a very useful container which provides storage for mowers, garden furniture, garden tools etc.All the land is almost flat grazing land, ideal for horses with good hedging as well as a fence immediately inside the hedge and post and rail paddocks dividing the fields. Pulsed 12v electric fencing over all the rails deters horses from rubbing against it and keeps the horses and the fencing safe. It is divided into two large and one smaller field all of which have interconnecting 12’gates. Each field has its’ own automatic water troughs and the smaller field has a newly installed double bay, fully lined field shelter with overhang for two large horses.
