cob house for sale
Keppel Gate, Ottery St Mary, Devon EX11 1TJ
Guide Price £1,100,000

Cob House Ottery St Mary
Cob, a mix of straw, soil and water, is an ancient building material and once one of the most common building materials in the West Country. It is once again enjoying a resurgence in popularity and the owner and builder of Keppel Gate is one of the leading proponents of cobbing in the country with a fabulous reputation for building bespoke properties, using the traditional construction techniques of cob and stone.

Ecofriendly, comfortable and economic to live in, the thick walls provide thermal mass making it easy to keep warm in winter and cool in summer. The three storey house has four reception rooms and five bedrooms and is full of character with curving walls, broad spiralling staircases and has top-spec finishes throughout. The house also has oak ceiling beams, underfloor heating, log burner and a four oven Aga.

Keppel Gate also comes with a sizeable two-storey detached annexe, garage and barn, all built of cob.

Set in about two acres of gardens with orchard, a wood-fired pizza oven (cob, of course) and pasture paddocks, the property is situated at the end of a quiet no-through-road, less than a mile from Ottery St Mary in East Devon

The owner is currently in the process of building another cob house for himself next door, so you'll always have a builder on hand!
