With the Wimbledon finals taking place this weekend, many of us will be left feeling inspired to dust off our rackets. We’ve rounded up a selection of ace West Country properties, each with their very own court to practice on.
This top floor apartment (above and top) sits within an elegant Grade II listed mansion just three miles to the east of the historic market town of Honiton. One of a number of classic individual residences created from the conversion of Widworthy Court, this particular apartment is located within the main body of the house and is accessed via a grant entrance into an impressive communal reception featuring Doric columns and an elegant open well staircase. Set within 10 acres of beautiful formal gardens and parkland, residents can enjoy access to the on-site gym, swimming pool sauna and outdoor tennis court.
This truly private Georgian manor house is surrounded by its own parkland and mature gardens. The seven-bedroom country house sits centrally overlooking the grounds, while two further residences, a two-bedroom cottage is situated off the back drive and a single storey lodge in need of refurbishment stands at the entrance to the property. A tree-lined driveway sweeps up to the house, whose spectacular grounds include a stream-fed lake with island and arched bridge, an attractive walled garden divided into quadrants, a covered swimming pool with adjoining changing room and a hard tennis court.
Set on the edge of a peaceful National Trust village, this outstanding Grade II listed farmhouse sits in 7.9 acres of gardens, paddocks, an orchard, stone outbuildings and stables. A fenced tennis court is discretely located within the garden, as is a walled enclosure with swimming pool, retractable domed cover and pump house. Located in the Porlock Vale on the north side of Exmoor National Park, this property offers excellent moorland riding for equestrian residents.
This handsome former farmhouse, detached converted barn annexe and further range of traditional barns are located in a wonderful rural position with far-reaching views. Surrounded by rolling hills, this property offers abundant scenic walks and enjoys a peaceful setting along a no-through road with just one immediate neighbour. Set in mature grounds of 0.65 acre, the buildings are arranged around a central courtyard with lawns and mature trees all around. To the north of the unconverted barns is a former tennis court, which could easily be reinstated.
