A renovated country home with large barns and paddocks in over 7 acres


Situated between Dunkeswell Abbey and Dunkeswell Old Village, Knapp enjoys a private rural location with just a few other houses down a long track in the glorious Blackdown Hills, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. A bridleway adjoins the property to the north with a footpath to the south.

The property is a short distance from the villages of Dunkeswell and Hemyock, both offering doctor's surgery and village shop. The market town of Honiton with rail link to London Waterloo and access to the A30 are 15 mins from the property. Wellington to the north has access to the M5. The larger town of Taunton has an excellent range of high street shops and rail link to London Paddington. Exeter and the south coast are about 40 mins drive.


Believed to date back to the 19th Century, the property has been significantly extended and improved to create a lovely family home, including many new windows and doors, beautiful kitchen, large en suite bathroom and wonderful landscaping.

The front door leads into the living room with a large picture window overlooking the garden and a feature fireplace. To the right a large farm-house style modern kitchen has a central island and electric Aga and then onto dining room.

Back through the living room, steps descend to an inner hall which leads to the main bedroom with its luxurious large en suite with roll top bath and double sink. There is a family bathroom and another ground floor bedroom. To the rear is a utility, WC, large hall and a study.

On the first floor, separated by a central bathroom are two double bedrooms, the larger of which has a door into a substantial walk-in loft room.

In all the land extends to over 7 acres and accessed from both the rear of the house and from the lane.
