On the market at the moment is a house which is fit for a King (or Queen). 15th century Weycroft Hall, a grade I listed building, is on the lookout for new owners to restore it to its full potential.
Weycroft Hall, in Devon, has retained its original character and architectural features expected from a period property. Currently being used as a charitable retreat, the hall enjoys its peaceful position set in the middle of approximately 2 ½ acres of gardens and is surrounded by its own land.
The ground floor accommodation comprises of an entrance hall with stairs to the upper floors and a flag-stone floor. Its inner hall leads to a drawing room on the left with oak panelled walls, exposed beams and a fireplace. The great hall is a stunning room with a double height ceiling, exposed roof trusses and a minstrel’s gallery. It is complete with a server and preparation room, kitchen and a cloakroom. Perfect for a mid century banquet!
Overall there are seven bedrooms, each with their own characteristic charm. In addition to the main building there is an annexe, which is currently being used separately but can be accessed from the main house and courtyard. It has the potential to be incorporated back into the main house, making their property even more grand.
There are several outbuildings that come with this property. One, set behind Weycroft Hall, is a cottage that has an open plan living area with a kitchen on the first floor and a bedroom and shower room on the ground floor. Another is a barn that also offers up a further two bedrooms. This two storey timber fronted building also includes a games room and office. The courtyard connecting the building provides additional parking to all of these outbuildings.
Weycroft Hall has beautiful south facing gardens which are all well maintained. There is even a walled vegetable garden to the side of the cottage and a further walled garden to the rear of the annexe. It seems that you could be almost self-sufficient with all this land!
The hall lies in a rural position on the edge of Axminster. The adjoining town boasts good primary and secondary schools (including the highly regarded Colyton Grammar school), a selection of churches, restaurants and its train station has services which run into London.
Whether you are looking for a place to call your own, become a holiday retreat or just craving to be Lord and Lady of the manor, this property seems to have it all. Offers for this amazing estate start at £800,000. What an absolute steel!
