A stunning 5 bedroom, Grade II listed property, which dates back to the early 1700s. It has been renovated by the current owners to combine period features with modern touches. This home is located in the highly sought after village of Kenton, near Exeter.
The property is accessed from a driveway off Mamhead Road, which then leads to a gated entrance onto a further gravelled driveway and turning area in front of the house. There is a glass veranda above the front door which leads through to the large entrance hallway/dining room. This room benefits from beautiful parquet flooring and a feature fireplace. To the right of the dining room is the impressive living room which has retained many period features including picture rails, traditional window shutters, ornamental period coving, and includes large high-efficiency wood burner fitted in 2021. The downstairs hallway with downstairs WC goes through to the kitchen and there are stairs leading to the first floor. The shaker style kitchen is fitted with an integrated double oven and microwave, 5 ring gas hob with extractor fan above, and plenty of wall and base units. There is a large window which makes the kitchen a lovely bright room and there is plenty of space for a large dining table or island unit in the centre. Directly off the kitchen is the utility room which has recently been fitted with a mains gas boiler system with combi boiler and pressurised hot water tank to allow a good supply of hot water all across the property. There is plumbing for a washing machine as well as space for a tumble dryer, and there is an ornamental fire place.
On the first floor landing there are handy built in storage cupboards as well as a feature stained glass window. The master bedroom suite comprises a large double bedroom with walk in wardrobe and further built in wardrobes, a newly installed shower room (being completed mid March) and WC. There are four further double bedrooms with views over the gardens. There is potential that two of these rooms could be opened up to create a larger bedroom if desired.
Externally the garden extends a considerable distance in front of the property and includes a gravel driveway. There are sections which are laid to lawn with mature borders, and there is a stream which runs through. Adjacent to the driveway is a double garage of breeze block construction. Beyond the driveway and set away from the main garden is a pathway leading to a 'Secret Garden' - an area of land approximately 150 sqm in size which is hidden behind a tall hedge.
Middle Court Hall originally formed part of the Powderham Estate owned by the Earl of Devon. The house has grown over time with extensions and alterations making it the home we see today. The earliest parts of the house date back to the early 1700s and Court Hall remained a single property until the 1950s when it was split into three properties.
Middle Court Hall is situated in the heart of the picturesque village of Kenton which is home to the Powderham Estate and the Earl of Devon. The village boasts two restaurants, café, village hall, primary school, and farm shop which houses a post office. The nearby Powderham Castle is also home to a well regarded bistro restaurant.
