A most attractive Residential/Equestrian Smallholding (5 beds) with potential for dual occupation, occupying an outstanding rural position benefiting from a useful range of stables and adaptable outbuildings, together with the adjoining productive pasture land enjoying stream frontage, the whole extending to about 6.03 Acres. EPC=D+E

Barham comprises a most attractive and versatile residential smallholding package occupying an outstanding and yet accessible rural position on the southern edge of the Exmoor National Park. The holding is centred upon a character detached bungalow, believed to date from about 1968, of timber cavity wall construction on a brick plinth with cedar clad elevations beneath a cedar shingle roof. The bungalow benefits from an elevated private position set in large gardens enjoying superb views over the surrounding unspoilt North Devon countryside. The spacious accommodation offers scope for dual occupancy, currently incorporating a self-contained annexe known as Little Barham, although this part may be easily amalgamated to create one substantial family home.
The property is initially approached via a shared entrance drive which in turn leads over a gated cattle grid into a private driveway with a large yard providing ample room for car parking and turning. Barham also benefits from a useful range of adaptable outbuildings, including pretty traditional stone barns, predominantly utilised for equestrian purposes although offering the potential, subject to obtaining any appropriate planning consent, for conversion to ancillary residential, commercial or holiday uses whilst also appealing to those prospective purchasers with livestock or horses. The farmstead is well situated within its own gently sloping pasture land which may be suited to a variety of agricultural smallholder, equestrian or other amenity uses, bordered in part by a pretty tree-lined stream.
Barham extends in total to about 6.03 Acres (2.44 Ha) and is offered for sale as a whole as detailed within these sale particulars.

The property occupies an outstanding rural position a short distance to the north east of the small hamlet of Heasley Mill, nestled within the gently rolling foothills on the southern fringe of the beautiful Exmoor National Park. Quiet country roads provide easy riding access to the open expanse of the moor.
Despite its peaceful rural location Barham is conveniently situated for access to the surrounding districts and main routes of communication. The popular village of North Molton provides a local primary school, village stores and public house, whilst the larger towns of South Molton and Barnstaple provide a good range of local services including shops, banks recreational facilities, primary and secondary schooling.
The Exmoor National Park offers beautiful moorland scenery with many foot and bridle paths and the stunning North Devon coastline, whilst to the west are the popular sandy beaches of Instow, Saunton Sands, Croyde Bay, Putsborough and Woolacombe.
The A361 North Devon Link Road at South Molton provides quick and easy access to Tiverton and the M5 motorway (Junction 27). Main line rail services are available at Tiverton Parkway and Exeter, with international airports at Exeter and Bristol.

Adjacent to the rear of the dwelling is a large stone paved Patio contained behind a low stone wall with double doors leading out from the living room and gated access to the adjoining gently sloping pasture paddock.
