This former Grade II listed farm is steeped in history and has been in the same family ownership for more than 100 years. Situated in Kilmington, one of East Devon's most popular villages, the farm is well located and is also close to the bustling market town of Axminster.
Now on the market for the first time in over a century, the attractive property requires some modernisation but is certainly packed with promise and potential.
The original farmhouse, built of stone elevation under a hipped thatched roof, is believed to date from the 17th century with a single-storey extension being added to the rear at a later date.
The charming farmhouse is filled with characterful features including an attractive inglenook fireplace, beamed ceilings and flagstone flooring.
There are three spacious reception rooms, all with focal fireplaces, with the main sitting room enjoying an outlook over the garden. The country cottage kitchen is fitted with a range of traditional wall and base units. To the first floor are four double bedrooms and a large family bathroom.
The plot also comes with a two-bedroom cottage, a two-bedroom apartment and several outbuildings. Ashes Farm Cottage is fitted with a shaker style kitchen, a downstairs bathroom, a large dual aspect reception room and two first floor bedrooms. The nearby Ashes Farm apartment features a sizeable main reception room, a fitted kitchen, a bathroom, and two bedrooms.
Outside, there is an additional two-storey stone building and grounds in the region of 1.53 acres.
