Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Set on the outskirts of the Exmoor National Park and coming to the market for the first time in nearly 50 years, this traditional farmhouse retains an abundance of original features.

Externally, a period L-shaped stone barn with adjoining linhay provides storage and workshop facilities, accompanied by a neighbouring stone garage. The gardens surround the property predominantly laid to lawn with well-stocked, mature borders and a vegetable garden and an adjoining paddock provides space for a pony or livestock, making Roborough an ideal self-sufficient home to live in.

Entering into the kitchen/breakfast room, the well-proportioned space is fitted with a range of matching base cupboards with inset sink and space for an electric cooker. Under stairs cupboards provide additional storage space.

A door opens to the sitting room with two windows to the South elevation, an inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove and bread oven, exposed ceiling timbers and brick flooring.

The snug would also serve well as a study or home office, situated to the Eastern elevation with a feature fireplace recess (external stack removed) and a window overlooking the South facing gardens.

The dining room is wonderfully characterful with an exposed timbered ceiling and brick flooring, stairs rise to the first floor and a door leads into the rear reception hall, giving access to a cloakroom with WC and a useful pantry with window to the rear gardens and outbuildings, ideal for storing home grown produce.

Moving to the first floor, a bright and airy landing with 2 Velux windows gives access to the bedrooms and bathroom. Bedrooms 1 and 2 both enjoy a Southerly outlook with views over the land and surrounding countryside. Both are good size double rooms with a fitted wardrobe in bedroom 2.

Bedroom 3 is a single room that has served well for visiting grandchildren with a sloping ceiling and exposed central beam restricting head height to the rear aspect. A window to the side provides garden and countryside views.

The bathroom is fitted with a 3 piece suite, again with a sloping ceiling and central beam restricting head height to the rear and a window overlooking the vegetable garden.

Gardens, Outbuildings and Land
The farmhouse is surrounded by private gardens, mainly laid to lawn and interspersed with mature trees and shrubs and well-stocked flower borders. A vegetable garden provides scope for home grown fruit and vegetable plots while a range of traditional stone outbuildings include open fronted storage spaces and two small stables. A generous garage leads back to the parking area with an up and over door and inspection pit. The enclosed paddock, with 5 bar and pedestrian gated access from the garden, sits to the Southern elevation forming good pasture with a small wetland area.
From Dulverton proceed along the B3222, passing over the bridge and through Battleton. Turn left signposted to Dunster & Minehead just before the garage and continue, turning left at the crossroads onto the A396. After a short while turn right toward Bury & Watchet, continue through Bury bearing right toward Watchet. After several miles turn left onto the B3190 and follow this road until you reach Upton. Proceed through the village and continue for approximately 2 miles. Roborough will be found on the left hand side.
