With its origins believed to date back to the late 17th century, this Grade II Listed thatched farmhouse has an abundance of charm and character as one might expect. The five-bedroom dwelling sits on a plot of just one acre and is located in the pretty hamlet of Cheriton, near Payhembury and Feniton. The surrounding area is quiet and unspoilt, with gentle hills and valleys that form a beautiful rural setting.
Inside, the property has been subject to several alterations over the past few hundred years such as the Flemish bond brick front elevation, yet original features such as the exposed timbers exist, adding to its appeal.
The property is in need of extensive modernisation and cosmetic work yet has enormous potential to be a wonderful family home.
Currently, the accommodation on the ground floor includes three spacious rooms housing a farmhouse kitchen with a Rayburn, a dining room and a drawing room. On the first floor, there are five bedrooms and access to a huge loft space which has the potential to develop into a much larger extra room.
Outside, the house is partly surrounded by brick-walled gardens with generous lawns and a plethora of trees. There's also an attractive old orchard and a substantial outbuilding made of block construction currently used as a garage and workshop.
