Situation
Natson Farm occupies an enviable position just to the south of the village of Bow with its primary school, medical centre, local Co-op and places of worship. The historic town of Crediton is around 8 miles providing a wider range of shopping, secondary schooling, recreational activities and railway station. Almost as convenient is the cathedral city of Exeter, 17 miles, boasting a wide range of facilities as befits a city of its size including mainline railway station, International airport and access to the M5 motorway.

General Description
Extending in total to some 145 acres, Natson Farm enjoys an excellent reputation as a productive and well equipped arable and stock farm. The farmstead lies towards the north of the holding and includes an attractive red brick farmhouse offering excellent family accommodation with outbuildings and good sized gardens. A little away are a pair of magnificent traditional barns, both of which have planning permission for conversion to spacious four bedroom houses and sitting in an elevated position is a further, more modern, farm building with permitted development for the creation of a unique four bedroom house with superb views. The existing farm comprises a range of modern general purpose farm buildings totalling around 4500 sq ft. The farmland comprises an excellent block of easily worked ground centred around a superb run of “red soil” arable land giving way to productive permanent pasture ground capable of producing an abundance of economic grass.  

The Farmhouse
This spacious red brick farmhouse occupies a pleasant setting at the head of the concrete entrance drive.  It is well maintained and is double glazed and centrally heated throughout with all of the principal rooms being of a very good size and height.  A brick porch leads to the main entrance hall with access to a sitting room, dining room, and excellent farmhouse kitchen off which there is a walk-in larder, office, utility, shower room, boot room and w.c.  On the first floor are four good sized bedrooms, one of which is en-suite plus a large family bathroom.  Outside the house a very useful range of outbuildings flanks a concrete courtyard beyond which the gardens are given over to lawns and a productive kitchen garden.

Traditional Barns with Planning Permission for Conversion 
The traditional barns lie to the west of the farmhouse and enjoy some pretty views over the open countryside which surrounds the property.  Planning consent has been obtained for the conversion of the barns to unrestricted residential use and copies of the planning consent are available from the selling agents.  They comprise:-

Lot 2 – The Old Shippon
108’ x 22’ a delightful two storey red brick barn with planning consent for conversion to create a spacious four bedroom house (with two en-suite plus family bathroom) with living room, dining room, kitchen, study and garage on the ground floor.  

Lot 3 – The Threshing Barn
120’ x 22’ (max) an impressive stone and cob barn at the head of the yard with an imaginative planning consent for conversion to a four bedroom (some with vaulted ceilings) house (with two en-suite plus family bathroom).  Partially inverted accommodation providing kitchen, dining room and spacious lounge with balcony.  

Lot 4 - The Grain Barn
45’ x 35’ set away to the southwest in a slightly elevated position, this more modern farm building has permitted development for the creation of a unique four bedroom house (with two en-suite plus family bathroom) with Juliet balconies and open plan kitchen dining and lounge area with snug, utility and w.c on the ground floor.

The Modern Farm Buildings
The modern farm buildings extend at present to around 4500 sq ft and will need to be removed as part of the planning conditions.  In the meantime, they will make useful builders stores during the construction process.

The Land
The land fundamentally lies within a ring fence bounded in the east by the parish road, part of the northern boundary formed by the River Yeo and elsewhere by adjoining farmland.  It comprises a productive run of arable and pasture land, the majority of which has regularly produced arable crops, the balance being down to productive pasture.  Running through the heart of the farm is a rich run of red soils with some heavier grass growing land towards the boundaries.

Basic Payment Scheme
Lot 5 only.
The property has been used to claim the Single Farm Payment since 2005 and the Basic Payment Scheme Entitlements are included with the sale of the land.  There will be a fee payable by the purchaser to the Agents for the transfer of the BPS Entitlements of £150 plus Vat. 

Services
Mains electricity and mains water are connected to the farmhouse and farm buildings where necessary.  The house is served by a private drainage system.

Ingoing Valuation
The purchaser of Lot 5 will be required to take over all growing crops at valuation to be prepared by Kivells.  There will be no counter claim for dilapidations.
