Situation - Whilst being in a totally private and peaceful rural location, Ham House lies only 2 miles from Bampton, a charming country town with a good range of amenities to include shops, pubs, a primary school and Doctors surgery. The larger market town of Tiverton lies 7 miles to the south, with a dual carriageway, access to junction 27 of the M5 motorway and Tiverton mainline railway station, providing regular intercity services to London Paddington. The whole area is well-known for its outstanding natural beauty with Exmoor National Park only 3 miles to the north and the beautiful Devon coast only a 40 minute drive away. The city of Exeter also provides excellent sporting and leisure facilities, as well as a theatre, cinema, museum, football and rugby clubs, leisure centres, private and state schooling and excellent shopping and dining.

Description - Hams House is a unique opportunity to demolish an existing detached period cottage and replace it with a grand design house with a double garage, which has full detailed planning permission granted. The accommodation comprises 4,100 sq feet of accommodation, arranged over three floors and has been designed to take full advantage of the wonderful setting. The original cottage is believed to have once been two workers cottages, for Holcombe Farm, previously known as Cats Castle. Built of cobble stone and predominately slate roof, the property is in need of a complete refurbishment, yet retains some lovely period features including two inglenook fireplaces with bread ovens, beams, window seats and original latch doors.
