The estate is centred within a mature classical English deer park, boasting a meticulously restored main house, complemented by an array of ancillary buildings including a stable courtyard, the Orangery and Chapel. The deer park, home to attractive herds of fallow and red deer, envelops the house on three sides, adding to the property's idyllic setting and providing a sense of seclusion and tranquillity.

The main house, an epitome of architectural elegance, suffered a catastrophic fire in 1990 and was entirely re-built under the watchful eye of English Heritage. This careful renovation has preserved the house's
original fireplaces, fine plaster work, oak floors, and mahogany panel doors, seamlessly blending them with modern high-quality fittings in the bathrooms and kitchen. The conversion of the basement to include family and ancillary rooms, while maintaining a butler's pantry with dumb waiter, underscores the property's blend of functionality and elegance.

Approached through wrought iron gates and along private tarmac drives, the house reveals a series of well-proportioned reception rooms and bedrooms, each offering splendid views over the estate. The front door opens into an enchanting oval hall, leading to the principal reception rooms adorned with exquisite fireplaces, plasterwork, and shuttered windows. The house is designed to accommodate both grand entertaining and intimate family life. The main reception rooms, including the drawing room, dining room, morning room, and library, are characterized by their comfortable yet majestic interiors. The kitchen, utility areas, and conservatories add layers of practicality and charm, further enhanced by the presence of cloakrooms and ancillary spaces.

Ascending the staircase from the oval hall reveals a master suite of exceptional elegance, alongside additional bedrooms and bathrooms, each designed to offer comfort and luxury in equal measure. The basement, a hub of practicality, includes a home office, cinema, wine cellar, and essential utility spaces, demonstrating the property's blend of grandeur with everyday functionality.

The estate's facilities, including a tennis court and helicopter hangar, are thoughtfully integrated into the landscape, ensuring convenience without compromising the property's aesthetic appeal. The stable courtyard, with its old Coach House now serving as stables and garaging, along with two 4-bedroom annexes, exemplifies the estate's commitment to preserving its heritage while adapting to contemporary needs. The Orangery, transformed into an exceptional and successful café business, alongside the chapel, now a unique venue, highlight Bridwell Park's versatility as both a private family home and a prestigious venue for events.

The estate's grounds are a testament to its historical significance, with the parkland setting detailed in the original 1779 park plan. The gardens, principally laid to lawns and framed by mature trees, offer a peaceful retreat and a scenic backdrop to the house.

An enclosed brick courtyard behind the house is home to the original Grade II listed Stable Block. With elegant architecture, and crowned with a central archway and distinctive clock tower, this building underwent a significant renovation in 2016 when its roof structure was meticulously replaced. The stable block is a harmonious blend of functionality and heritage, featuring twin double garages that flank the courtyard. On one side, the block preserves its equestrian provenance with three traditional stables and two stalls, complete with original hay managers and water troughs, alongside a modern shower room equipped with all necessities. The other side houses additional living accommodation with open plan kitchen/dining room and sitting room.

Bridwell Park, a Grade I Listed estate, presents a unique opportunity to acquire a slice of Devon's rich history, encapsulated within a magnificent period home that stands proudly at the heart of its own extensive parkland.

This stunning estate, with its commanding views over a sprawling lake and beautiful parkland to the undulating contours of the surrounding countryside, is a testament to the grandeur and elegance of English country living at its finest.
