Features and description

  • Freehold
Blue Anchor is a historic, characterful and well extended detached family home which truly makes the most of its picturesque rural surroundings.

On the ground floor, a hallway leads into the first of the two reception rooms. The drawing room has a charming feature fireplace with a log burner, which is open and visible through to the adjoining dining room. A sociable open-plan layout with stone floors running throughout leads on into the bright and sizeable kitchen, which contains a range of bespoke wall and base units and benefits from double doors to the property's sunny rear terrace.

Through one of the many characteristic wooden
doors is the cosy sitting room, which contains a
second feature fireplace complete with another
log burning stove. Handy built-in storage, as well as a further contemporary cloakroom with shower facilities, completes the ground floor accommodation.

On the first floor of the property is the bright
principal bedroom which provides access onto the balcony, which is complemented by scenic views. There are also four other wellproportioned
bedrooms making up the first floor, as well as a spacious and attractive family bathroom with storage.

There is also planning permission granted to convert the garage into a 2-bedroom annexe.

Primary School and Colyton Grammar School.<br /><br />Externally, Blue Anchor sits in a considerable plot, with a separate detached garage, a store and a wood store. The enclosed gravelled driveway also offers additional space for the parking of several vehicles.

A sunken terrace, built and bordered with railway sleepers to the rear of the property, provides a peaceful setting for admiring the far-reaching countryside views whilst dining al fresco and making use of the impressive brick built-in pizza oven.

An extensive area of level lawn follows, encircled
by shrubbery and punctuated by several mature
