This quintessential thatched former farmhouse occupies a plot of 1.77 acres and is located in the small village of Wilmington, while Honiton is only four miles away.

The striking Grade II listed property, named Park Farm, has been sympathetically renovated and modernised over the years and has included single-storey extensions to two sides of the property. Inside, the house is beautifully presented, and it is clear that great care has been taken in restoring many of the property’s historic features along with creating a more modern living environment.

Midweek Herald: This newly built kitchen is bathed in natural light

The sitting room is a welcoming and cosy space with part-panelled walls, exposed beams and an arched brick fireplace housing a wood-burning stove. The dining room is equally charming with an impressive inglenook fireplace with a bread oven, bespoke storage cupboards and a small custom-built bar.

The generously sized kitchen/family room lies at the heart of the home and certainly has the wow factor. This newly built space is bathed in natural light thanks to its large windows and it is centred around an Esse stove, with classic solid wood units, quartz work surfaces and an island. The spacious area is large enough to accommodate a dining table and sofa. Also on the ground floor, is a study which would work well as a downstairs bedroom or snug.

On the first floor, there are three bedrooms and a superbly appointed family bathroom.

Outside, the grounds measure 1.77 acres and include formal gardens, a small pony paddock and a field that has been left to meadow and comes with two timber-framed outbuildings. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with various mature shrubs and trees, and there is a large patio area adjacent to the house that can comfortably accommodate an outdoor family table and chairs.

The property also comes with a garage/workshop.
