Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Ford House is a Grade II Listed semi-detached former farmhouse situated in the heart of the Taw Valley enjoying easy access to the A377 Exeter to Barnstaple main road and benefiting from extensive river valley views. The property, believed in part to date back to the 15th Century, is of traditional stone and cob construction with rendered and colour washed elevations under a thatched roof. Internally Ford House benefits from all the character and charm one would expect from a property of this period including traditional exposed fireplaces in the Sitting Room and Parlour Room with inset heavy beams over, the original heavy beamed ceilings throughout and traditional multi-pane windows throughout. Modern additions include an attractive farmhouse style Kitchen, 'Woodwarm' wood burning stoves fitted in the Sitting Room and Parlour Room and a large oil-fired 'Aga' in the Kitchen/Breakfast Room. Ford House also benefits from recently installed solar panel electric.

Outside Ford House is approached via a gravel drive, shared with just one other property, which divides and gives access to both the front and rear of the house. At the rear there is a large gravel off-road parking area providing enough space for several cars and gives access to both the Workshop, the substantial timber framed Agricultural Outbuilding and the Back Door into the Entrance Hall. The parking area is located at the top of the 1.49 acre paddock which is otherwise laid to grass and bordered by mature trees. At the front of Ford House there is a large, south facing, partially walled garden extending to just over half an acre and allowing lovely rural valley views. Overall Ford House offers the opportunity for a substantial character farmhouse with a large Agricultural Outbuilding and land extending to approximately 2 acres, creating the potential for a variety of uses including a Farmhouse B&B.
