Full description

A non-listed family house at the end of a long drive in the heart of the Blackdown Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Extensive ancillary accommodation, garaging, barns, paddocks and lakes. EPC Rating D. About 20.4 acres.

Vencroft Farm has grown organically over the years with its origins believed to date back to the 15th Century. The house has been cleverly extended with a fabulous conservatory on the southern end giving magnificent rural views out across its own landscaped garden, ponds and lake to the fields and woodland beyond down the Culm Valley. An original stone barn has been cleverly incorporated into the house to create a fantastic dining room with a high pitched roof and a minstrels gallery.

With a total of 7 bedrooms, 3 of which are en suite, along with the potential conversion of the barn annexe, there is ample accommodation to cater for a large number of family members and guests.

The house forms two sides of a delightful courtyard, in the centre of which there is a fountain and turning circle. On the opposite side of the courtyard is an original barn that has been cleverly renovated to provide useful garaging, a shower and a kitchenette.

The house and outbuildings are flanked to the rear by mature deciduous woodland and the private drive is lined by London Plane trees. There is an orchard providing cider and eating apples and a large variety of fruit trees. A small series of ponds and a lake are fed by the River Culm and the lake at the southern end has a landing platform for boating.
