The Brake is a large south-facing detached property set within its own gardens and grounds of approximately 4 acres. The property enjoys spectacular, wide-ranging views over East Devon’s unspoilt area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and towards the sea. Set above the village of Colaton Raleigh, The Brake is in a uniquely quiet, private and undisturbed location not overlooked by any neighbouring property. The current owners have lived at The Brake for over 19 years and during that time they have remodelled the accommodation to create a beautifully-presented family home that extends to over 3,000 square feet. The accommodation is spacious and flexible; with four downstairs reception rooms and a large entrance hall. Attractive coving and period fireplaces have been added to the reception rooms, and the stylish, large kitchen has also been reconfigured. Upstairs there are four bedrooms, three with en-suite bathrooms with Fired Earth fittings, plus a family bathroom.
Planning Permission: Two planning permissions have been granted. There is permission to build an oak-framed barn for use as an annexe or holiday let (planning ref. 13/1310/FUL). Additionally, there is also planning permission approved for the creation of a fifth bedroom above the music room. This planning application also includes permission for the erection of a new stable in the field (planning ref. 04/P1127).
Garaging and Annexe: A detached building near to the house includes a double garage and workshop on the ground floor, plus a self-contained one bedroom annexe providing ancilliary accommodation and a large office on the first floor.
The Brake is approached via a long private drive which leads to the house, where there is space for multiple vehicles to park. The house sits in approximately 4 acres which extend around the house, providing complete privacy. There are beautiful formal gardens adjacent to the house, including a pond with a pretty footbridge. As well as being a haven for wildlife, a wide range of flora is found within the spectacular gardens and wooded areas, including specimen trees such as acers and ginko. There is also a paddock with a wild flower meadow and a stable, plus a larch plantation (self-sufficient for firewood).
