Property of the Week is this most attractive and substantial Grade II-listed former manor house with 16th century origins.
The property is set within delightful enclosed gardens of around one acre, occupying a truly favoured location between the ever popular villages of Northam and Appledore.
The gas centrally heated accommodation is arranged over two floors and comprises the main dwelling with three reception rooms, kitchen/breakfast, three double bedrooms and bathroom plus an attached two-bedroom, self-contained cottage – sharing the services – having its own front entrance and connecting internal doorways from the main house on both levels.
Period beamed ceilings include a superb vaulted principal bedroom, some exposed floorboarding, most windows replaced with wood framed and double glazed sash and casement units, carved marble and sandstone fireplaces leaving scope for areas of updating and redecoration.
The property is not completely detached there being two smaller roadside cottages adjoining.
Diddywell is a small semi-rural homestead of around a dozen dwellings on the edge of Northam village and adjacent to the riverside community of Appledore.
The property in Diddywell Lane, Northam, is on the market with a guide price of £750,000 with Brights estate agents. To book a viewing, or for more information, call Brights on 01237 473241.
