The Old Bakery is a 17th Century detached property believed to be formerly two cottages and indeed an actual old bakery complete with bread oven. The property is situated in the beautiful unspoilt and sought after hamlet of Shute, occupying a privileged position, surrounded by acres of rolling Devon countryside, meadows, and adjoining apple orchards, just over 3 miles and a short drive from Exeter.
The property itself offers a wealth of period features, including original beams, inglenook fireplace, 40 ft private well and bread oven with cast iron door.

A recent extension to the property has created additional contemporary space that embraces modern living whilst honouring the buildings historic roots, fitted with Velux and floor to vaulted ceiling active neutral windows which open out onto the gardens and showcase the surrounding countryside and nearby Raddon Hills one of the highest parts of Devon.

In all areas of the house there is high speed internet access with additional CAT 5 ethernet points in the extension areas. Arriving at the house one enters through a bespoke solid oak porch with vaulted church style ceiling and triple aspect windows-built by local artisans. Surrounding the property are the gardens, a particular feature is the paved seating area with an impressive dry stone wall, designed and built by a craftsman who works for Prince Charles. The gardens offer peaceful, unspoilt, westerly views of the hills, woodland ridges and arable landscape, ideal for watching the setting sun.

LOCATION Shute is a hamlet just 3.5 miles from the beautiful cathedral city of Exeter with its new shopping centre, theatres, university and abundance of restaurants offering global cuisine. Nearby lies Shobrooke Park, a spacious country estate, open to the public, with many wizened and ancient trees.
