Property description

Tenure: Freehold

An impressive Grade II listed farmhouse with an extensive range of outbuildings and a pond, positioned in about five acres of gardens and grounds only three miles from Exeter.


Bidwell Barton is a handsome Grade II listed farmhouse with a fine Georgian façade. Approached via a pretty path flanked by the front garden and welcomed by a striking front door, the entrance hall is perfect for welcoming guests. Accommodation on the ground floor comprises of a wonderful living room with an inglenook fireplace and fine views to the front aspect, from here there is access into the dining room again enjoying a delightful outlook and an open fire, and the kitchen. The drawing room is of particular interest being of Georgian design and proportions, two bay windows to the front aspect and a further wood burning stove with stone surround. Further accommodation on the ground floor includes a conservatory, office and utility. To the rear of the house, there is a unique, cob constructed walled garden which is another noteable feature of Bidwell Barton. The wonderful main staircase leads to the first floor where there are five bedrooms and two bathrooms. Four of the bedrooms are to the front aspect with one to the west and all benefit from delightful views over the front garden and grounds. A further staircase leads to the extensive loft room which provides fabulous storage space and an opportunity for conversion (subject to necessary planning consents)

Outside, there is a fantastic range of outbuildings, predominantly traditional buildings which offer potential for a variety of uses which could (subject to planning) suit multi generational living. The main two storey cider barn with an attached granary with mezzanine has previously been used as a packing and storage centre for a former organic vegetable business and other buildings have been purely used for agriculture, storage and workshops so provide endless opportunity for alternative uses (stp). Bidwell Barton is approached via its own private drive which leads the front of the house where there is ample parking.

Bidwell is located just outside the charming village of Upton Pyne and two miles from Brampford Speke.
