A chance to purchase this spacious detached five bedroom, three reception room character farmhouse believed to date to the 17th century, conveniently situated between the towns of Barnstaple and Bideford and with an option to purchase an adjacent field of about 2 acres.

The property retains many of its original character features including large fireplaces and beamed ceilings as well as later additions including a lovely herringbone wood parquet floor in the sitting room and Victorian tessellated flooring in the hallway but also offers scope for further improvements.

Venton Farm is located at the end of a small lane and was the original farmhouse with a number of other farm buildings close by that have subsequently been turned into attractive homes.

The downstairs accommodation offers a light and spacious living room with cast iron wood burning stove, there is a double aspect dining room with large open chimney breast, a comfortable sitting room with fireplace, a farmhouse kitchen with beamed ceiling, slate worktops an oil fired range for cooking and central heating and a useful utility room and cloakroom w/c, there is also a rear lobby area with a door to the back of the house and a small workshop.

Upstairs are five bedrooms, a shower room and a family bathroom.

Adjoining the garden is a field of about 2 acres which can be purchased subject to separate negotiations.

Also as part of the sale is a 31' x 14 stone barn which could be converted into an annex or holiday letting cottage (subject to planning consent) and there are another two metal storage sheds at the side of the main house 12'9" x 12 and 12' x 11'9".
