Auction Guide £600,000 - £650,000.

Southey Barton has been in the ownership of the current vendors family for 60 years and the sale thereby affords prospective purchasers an extremely rare opportunity to acquire a unique residential holding occupying a superb rural position.

The property briefly comprises a detached farmhouse having previously been split in two, although now requiring complete renovation and modernisation, but the potential undoubtedly exists for the creation of a character country residence in an outstanding rural setting.

The range of traditional farm buildings may offer the scope, subject to the appropriate planning consents, for conversion to a variety of ancillary and alternative uses, whilst the surrounding pasture land provides an excellent protective buffer to the farmhouse and buildings, as well as affording considerable appeal for those potential purchasers with agricultural, equestrian or other amenity interests. Southey Barton extends in total to about 14.86 Acres (6.01 Ha) and is offered for sale by public auction as a whole as detailed within these sale particulars.

Southey Barton occupies an outstanding rural position situated within the sought after Culm Valley, and widely regarded as some of the most attractive countryside in the county. The property enjoys a delightful setting situated approximately 0.50 miles to the west of the village of Culmstock.

Culmstock itself provides a thriving local community with its primary school, parish church, the Culm Valley Inn public house and village stores incorporating a café and deli whilst the larger centres of Wellington, Taunton, Cullompton, Tiverton and Honiton all offer a good range of everyday shopping, banking and scholastic services. The Somerset county town of Taunton lies within approximately 14 miles of the property affording an extensive range of commercial, educational and recreational facilities befitting those of an important regional and administrative centre, together with a wide range of primary, secondary and further education facilities, including three noted public schools.

Despite its rural position the property enjoys easy access to the surrounding districts and further afield with access to the M5 motorway available at Wellington (J26) and Tiverton (J27) whilst main line rail services are also available at Taunton, Honiton and Tiverton Parkway. Access to the A303 trunk route at Honiton provides an easy link to London and the South East, with international airports at Exeter and Bristol. To the south lies the Jurassic Coast, a World Heritage Site, with pretty coastal towns and villages such as Lyme Regis, Seaton and Sidmouth.
