Shri Babaji has chosen the auspicious date of Gurupurnima 2009 to gift us with a beautiful new ashram.
A series of synchronicities and astonishing generosity on the part of devotees, has resulted in an offer being accepted for a large house and land in Devon . Bhole Baba ki Jai! SITUATION: Haccadown occupies an attractive elevated position with far reaching country views in two directions, either to the east over the valley to Whitestone Ridge or to the west, down the Teign Valley and on towards Dartmoor.
The property, though in a wonderful rural location, is most convenient to the university and cathedral city of
Exeter, which is about 6 miles with its comprehensive range of facilities. Access to the A30 dual carriageway
is only about 2 miles which connects to the M5 motorway, whilst to the east of the M5 is Exeter International
Airport. In Exeter are railway stations on the London Waterloo and Paddington lines.
THE HOUSE: Haccadown is a detached period farmhouse, probably dating from many hundreds of years ago
and has a wealth of character befitting a house of its age. On either side of a central staircase there is a good
sized reception room, each with a brick and stone inglenook fireplace with bread oven, seat and wood burning
stove. There are heavily beamed ceilings and exposed timbers, a bible cupboard in the sitting room and a
further interesting cupboard with shelving above in the living room.
A single storey addition on the back of the house contains the fitted kitchen/breakfast room and also the selfcontained annexe, ideal for dependant relatives or teenagers.
On the first floor there is a bedroom and bathroom on one side of the stairs and two bedrooms on the other.
Planning Permission has been granted for the replacement of the single storey portion with a two storey addition to include a large farmhouse-style kitchen, study, utility, cloakroom, two bedrooms, en suite shower room and family bathroom. A copy of the drawings are available from the agents.THE GARDENS: A tarmac drive leads through a five bar gate to a large chipping parking area at the rear of the house. Off this area is another large chipping area with space for a number of vehicles.
The gardens are on all sides of the house, mainly laid to lawn with a variety of borders, shrubs and trees along
with an old cobbled area at the front of the house. There is a garden shed plus an ornamental pond at the far
end of the garden.
Wonderful rural views are enjoyed to the rear over many miles of Devon countryside.LAND AND BUILDINGS: Off the drive are two large timber and profile steel Garages/Workshops. The drive continues to two access gates leading into the sloping paddock which is to the north of the gardens, providing useful grazing.
Overall the property amounts to about 6 acres.
