New to letting for 2024

A former reservoir, Woolbrook Reservoir hides itself beautifully at the top of a quiet lane in a pretty Devonshire suburb, its smart bricked drive concealing something truly fantastic. This is a celebration home like none other; uniquely designed and jaw-droppingly beautiful, where luxury and playfulness combine into one superbly spacious package.

With a smattering of Alice in Wonderland, its long storm-blue entrance hall and series of doors is all mystery and drama, but unlike the heroine in the story, you won’t need to drink a potion to discover what lies beyond. Simply pull back the handle and step straight into the magic, where an incredible interior framed in sky-high glass wraps itself around a stop-you-in-your-tracks light-filled atrium. Here you’ll find a space filled with beauty both natural and manmade, where the sun’s rays can be soaked up from morning until well into the evening. There are nooks to steal away to if you like time on your own including a weight-training room/gym, and sprawling spaces to converge in for time together like an enormous high spec kitchen/diner, games room and barbecue area.

On the ground floor, three sets of French doors can be thrown open to make the entertaining space bigger, while at roof top level an established garden has lawns to laze on, paths to explore, and a sweep of decking with its own bar and wood-fired hot tub. Practically speaking every ‘t’ has been crossed and every ‘i’ dotted with a host of amenities and entertainment features provided to keep kids (and grown-ups) busy while lunch sizzles away on the fire. And when the weather doesn’t play ball, the fun won’t need to stop as a table tennis and a pool table as well as a huge outdoor lounge suite with outdoor fireplace sit under cover overlooking the atrium. Back inside through the French doors, eight monitors with USB are mounted to the dining room wall and can be used to load your own images, so if you're gathering together to celebrate an occasion like a birthday or anniversary, this along with a state-of-the-art surround sound system will set the mood for a party.

Positioned to offer not only privacy but also some of the best views in the area, this wonderful home, though secluded, is less than a mile and a half from the Regency town of Sidmouth so it’s perfectly located for exploring East Devon’s Jurassic coastline. Pop into town for a bite to eat or pack a picnic and head to the beach for a day of sunbathing or SUP-ping. For avid walkers there are river walks to enjoy as well as the South West Coast Path whose various routes showcase dramatic views of the area’s iconic red cliffs and bay.
