    Gardens and Grounds
    Outside is a delight and clearly has been a labour of love with the garden affording the most wonderful views over the River Exe and the Exe Valley. There is a terrace directly outside to take in these views alongside a further seating area to the side of the garden. The rear garden itself is mostly laid to lawn with several established shrubs and plants. To the front, Ashley Chase is approached via a long sweeping driveway, flanked on the left-hand side by its own private paddock which is an excellent and unusual addition to the house . Entering through the double gates is an extensive parking area where there is a double garage. Further outbuildings include a shed and a wonderful barn which has huge scope for further development (subject to the necessary planning consents). The front garden is beautiful and has an array of established flower beds, shrubs and trees creating a sense of privacy and seclusion.
