Bedrooms: 4
A beautifully presented circa 16th century five bedroom detached Grade II listed former farmhouse sat in about 5.42 acres.

The property occupies a picturesque rural location. It is set within the rolling hills of the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Although located to enjoy the beauty and tranquillity of the countryside, the property is by no means isolated, lying just a short walk/ drive from the centre of Honiton with its mainline railway station to London Waterloo and a short distance from the Jurassic coast at Sidmouth and Beer.

Exeter and Taunton are also within easy reach and offer a wide range of retail, commercial, educational and cultural facilities, supplemented by an international airport and a fast train service to London Paddington.

The property sits within a very generous 5.42 acre plot which has been extremely well maintained by the current owners.

A five bar gate gives access to a very grand gravelled circular driveway. Within the driveway there is an area of lawn, a pond, well stocked borders and access to the double garage.

Garage. Windows either side, an up and over electrically operated double door, light and power and to the rear there is access to a very useful workshop (also with light and power), integral bunded oil storage tank and log store.

Next to the garage and to the rear of the house is a more formal garden area which is laid to lawn with an array of mature trees. From the side of the drive there is a gate that leads in to a very productive kitchen garden which includes raised beds, fruit cage, a good sized greenhouse and a poly tunnel. Another gate leads from the kitchen garden into a large orchard/ field. This includes many fruit trees. A five bar gate from the orchard leads to a young amenity woodland. At the bottom of the field is a driveway with a five bar gate to the lane and access to a large modern barn.

At the top of this field there is another gate leading in to the back of the main garden with many mature trees and an elevated timber deck patio.
