Full Details

Located on the very edge of WInkleigh, down a private road, sits Seckington House. This is the first time in nearly 40 years that this property has come to the market and it offers a wonderful chance to enjoy a rural lifestyle without being isolated. Winkleigh village is approx. half a mile with its shops and pub, plus the bus stop is within walking distanced of the house. Being located off a private road, there is little passing traffic and wonderful views over the adjoining countryside to Dartmoor on the horizon.

The House
The property started life as a chalet bungalow but was extended a few years ago to now give over 2100 sqft of accommodation internally. The layout is flexible with the options to use the property as one or as a house with an annexe. Unlike many houses with annexe potential, this one truly works well with minimal disruption and would provide a generous 1 or 2 bedroomed annexe, still leaving a 3 bedroom property too. There is a good sized kitchen, dining room, living room, utility, another large sitting room and a garden room on the ground floor, plus a study or bedroom 5! On the first floor are 4 bedrooms, one with an ensuite plus a family bathroom. It is worth noting that currently, the master bedroom is accessed via a separate staircase to the other bedrooms.
See the house floorplan for room sizes and indication of annexe split.

The Gardens
Outside, the house sits in a plot of approx. 0.3 acres with gated parking (plus EV charger) and pretty flower beds. There are storage sheds and log stores and at the rear and the south facing garden provides a wonderfully private space with paved seating areas, planted beds, lawns and an ornamental pond. The garden backs onto fields and has wonderful views to Dartmoor.
Directly opposite the gates to the house is a large level parking area (ideal for those with additional vehicles or trailers etc) and subject to permissions, would be an ideal position to erect a workshop/store for those looking to work from home and still leave space for parking. There’s a useful fenced off garden currently used for dog agility (lawned area) and then a small gate from the hard standing gives access to a stunning garden with pathways and specimen trees, lawns, planted beds and central to it all is a beautiful large wildlife pond which is home to all manner of wildlife. It’s a really private and quiet space which is sure to be enjoyed by a new owner. In all, this additional gardens and parking is approx. 1.2 acres.

The Cabin (Sadie’s Lodge)
A gorgeous 2 bedroom lodge with full residential planning meaning year round occupation and it can be let out on a tenancy or as holiday lets. It’s in great condition with an open plan living room/kitchen, 2 bathrooms and sat in it’s own garden area a short distance away from the main house. It’s on separate services and has it’s own parking. There’s amazing views to Dartmoor and is a proper Devon retreat.

The Outbuildings
There’s a collection of barns/garaging/workshops on the property which would suit a variety of uses. In total the floor area is approx. 2100 sqft with various access points and a good sized yard. Again, these are a short distance away from the main house so don’t impact.
