Coxmoor is a secluded former farm comprising just three homes of which Coxmoor Farmhouse is the larger original home sitting in about 0.8 acres of beautiful gardens. It is attached to a smaller neighbouring cottage which was the former dairy to the farmhouse. This charming character home is spacious and well proportioned and very well presented with three comfortable reception rooms, two large stone fireplaces with wood burners, a big bespoke fitted kitchen with an Aga, a utility room and a wet room on the ground floor. Upstairs is accessed by two staircases, one at either end of the house and there are five double bedrooms and a well appointed separate shower room and bathroom. Separate from the house is an outbuilding with a gym/spa area and a large home office and there is also a covered bay with a workshop. The gardens are beautiful with a large grassed area with mature deciduous trees and a paved patio, a gravelled drive and plenty of parking. A notable feature is the vegetable garden and parterre which is sheltered behind mature hedgerows and which has a large greenhouse and a summerhouse. This delightful home must be seen to be appreciated and Fowlers strongly recommend viewing.



Coxmoor is located in peaceful, secluded rural splendour surrounded by fields at the bottom of an adopted highway about half a mile from the Spreyton road two miles from Spreyton and just under 6 miles from the station at Copplestone. Nearby Spreyton has a village shop, pub, a Primary school and Parish church. The A30 dual carriageway is only about 5.5 miles away with great access to the M5 and Cornwall.
