A beautiful Grade II Listed 4-bedroom detached former farmhouse with an attached 2-bedroom annexe set in delightful gardens and ground of approximately 0.67 acres. Situated in a quiet rural location with only one near neighbour, surrounded by North Devon countryside and accessed down a no through track with ample parking and large garage.
The property has attractive stone elevations under a slate roof with the main house offering a wealth of charm and character including exposed beams, deep sills and feature fireplaces. The main accommodation comprises entrance porch, sitting room with stone fireplace housing a wood burning stove and bread oven and a study area to one side, spacious family room with feature fireplace and bread oven (currently boarded) and separate access to the rear garden with porch, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room with ample range of wall and base units, one and a half bowl sink unit, space for free standing cooker and fridge, space and plumbing for dishwasher, breakfast bar, recessed fireplace housing a Rayburn Royal, a utility room with space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer, sink unit and boiler.

To the first floor are 4 good size double bedrooms with the master having the benefit of an ensuite shower room comprising a 3-piece white suite with shower cubicle, pedestal wash handbasin and w.c., the further 3 bedrooms have small built-in cupboards with 2 of the bedrooms having wash handbasins. Completing the main accommodation is the family bathroom comprising bath, pedestal wash handbasin, w.c., and heated towel rail. All bedrooms enjoy fine views over the gardens to countryside beyond.

The attached self-contained annexe, which would be ideal for an independent relative or as a holiday let, can be accessed via 2 entrances and could also revert back to be interconnected to the main house through a doorway from the main lounge which is currently blocked up. The entrance leads to a spacious hall with shower room off and door leading to the open plan living/dining space, sliding doors giving access to the gardens, modern fitted kitchen with ample range of wall and base units, slot-in electric oven, hob and extractor over, one and a half bowl sink unit, space for fridge and space for a dining table. There are 2 bedrooms, one being a double with dual aspect windows and recess.

Outside, the property is approached over an un-metalled track, shared by the farmer and adjacent property, where a 5-bar gate gives access to the privte driveway which leads to the property and detached garage with power and light connected. There are further stone outbuildings including a pair of stone outhouses and a dilapidated large barn, which we understand previously had planning permission (since lapsed) for a 2-bedroom holiday unit. A stone archway with wrought
iron gate gives access through to the front of the property, where opposite the main door is a covered area with a well. The beautiful gardens wrap around the property, bounded by Devon banks and enjoy a lovely aspect over adjoining fields and are mainly laid to sweeping lawns with mature trees and plants. There is a stone terrace to the front and to the rear a greenhouse and an area ideal for a kitchen garden and a further stone store.

The property is situated in a delightful rural hamlet of Bittadon which is located approximately 7 miles from Barnstaple and is surrounded by some of North Devon's most spectacular and breathtaking countryside. Also within easy access are many coastal resorts including Croyde, Woolacombe, Saunton, Combe Martin and Ilfracombe. The regional centre of North Devon, Barnstaple, offers an excellent range of both local and national high street shops, banks and leisure facilities and gives access to the North Devon Link Road which leads to the M5 and motorway network beyond.
From Barnstaple take the A39 in the direction of Lynton, after you pass the junction at the North Devon District Hospital take the next left signposted Ilfracombe on the B3230. Continue along this road through Muddiford, Milltown and Bittadon take the right had turning at Centery Farm. Continue along this lane for about a mile passing Hillcrest Farm on the right, take the next unmarked track on the right, opposite a cream coloured farmhouse. Follow this track and the property can be found at the end.
