Occupying an elevated position on the outskirts of Sidford, The Spinney is a home of unique design and character, set in grounds of around three quarters of an acre in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The property was designed by the renowned architect RW Sampson and constructed by RW & J Skinner as a coach house to Trow Hall.
Many years ago the property was converted to provide a pair of semi-detached houses, while more recently it has been updated and extended to provide, what is now, one charming three bedroom family home.
Inside, the house is spacious and versatile, and special stand-out features include a double height conservatory with a decorative wrought iron spiral staircase giving access to one of the first floor bedrooms.
The living room has exposed timber floorboards and a triple aspect that enables natural light to spill into the space. To the rear, the open plan kitchen has a shaker-style look with charming tiled flooring and a multi-fuel burning fire. There's also a cosy snug and an impressive conservatory.
There are two double bedrooms and quality fitted bathroom suites on both the ground and first floor.
Outside, the spacious grounds contain a wealth of ornamental shrubs and trees. Extensive paved and gravelled areas can be seen in the gardens which have a southerly and westerly aspect, and a gated paddock features several trees, shrubs and a small pond with stunning views through the trees over the Sid Valley.
Outbuildings include two greenhouses, timber garden sheds, a garage and a large stable/workshop.
To the rear boundary, there's gated access to a public footpath that goes through woodland and onto the Jurassic Coast.
