The house sits centrally within its land, surrounded by mature trees and magical gardens, with the River Exe running through the grounds.The layout of the house is typical of its era, with large symmetrical square rooms, high ceilings and lots of useable space. The large kitchen/breakfast room forms the focal point of the ground floor, from which is accessed the secondary kitchen, utility room and orangery. There are a further five reception rooms, including a billiards room and large study, which all flow well and offer fantastic space for entertaining. The impressive proportions continue to the first floor. At the top of stairs, one is greeted by a large landing area, off which there are six large bedrooms and six bathrooms, as well as substantial storage space. The amount of space combined with the simple layout, makes Worth House an ideal family home.OutbuildingsA large outbuilding behind the house offers ample storage space, a double garage and two stables on the ground floor. On the first floor are two flats. Both flats contain one bedroom, a sitting room, kitchen and bathroom. They are currently let out on assured shorthold tenancies.

The primary drive sweeps around the rear of the house passing in between the main house and the outbuildings, and then to the front of the house where there is a substantial gravelled parking area with a fountain in the middle. There is secondary access from Washfield Lane.The grounds form a mixture of areas of lawn and woodland. In front of the house is a large area of lawn and a tennis court sits just to the east of the house. A path runs north away from the outbuildings, and leads to the substantial walled garden. This area offers the potential to create additional accommodation, subject to obtaining the relevant planning consent.

Approximately a mile of the River Exe is owned by Worth House, and provides extensive fishing for an incoming buyer.
