Situated in the beautiful Devon village of East Budleigh, just a short distance from the sea, 19th Century Wynards is prestigious enough to have earned a mention in Pesvner?s ?Buildings of England?. It is described as ?an early 19th Century red brick front and bracketed eaves below a hipped roof, but cob side walls?.
The house still retains much of its original charm with its handsome facade and classic proportions. Recent interior renovation and refurbishment has succeeded in adding a light and innovative contemporary style into the traditionally proportioned rooms.
An impressive entrance hall with a stylish Amtico floor leads towards the newly refurbished kitchen and breakfast room. The spacious dining room juxtaposes old and new with white floorboards and old cornicing and the sitting room has a cast iron gas stove and restored window shutters.

Upstairs six spacious bedrooms and three bathrooms have views over the lovely garden or the high street and brook opposite the property. A beautiful south-facing walled garden with an attractive pergola and pretty paved area makes a perfect retreat. Pesvner writes: ?At the back an older barn with small primitive wooden mullioned arched windows,? and the building behind the house remains true this description. The 1500 ft traditional barn would make an ideal renovation project with its small wooden mullioned arched windows.

East Budleigh was once a market town and thriving port when the River Otter was navigable but today it is highly regarded in the area as a tranquil, attractive place to live. Nearby Woodbury Common is a wonderful place to walk as is the spectacular East Devon coast where there are also good facilities for sailing.
Wynards, East Budleigh is on the market with Jackson-Stops and Staff and offers are invited in the region of £950,000.
