Situation And Amenites - The property enjoys the best of all worlds being set within its own ground, well detached, remote but not isolated, in a tranquil secluded valley surrounded by the natural beauty of Exmoor. The nearest amenities are at Lynton/Lynmouth and Combe Martin all about 15 minutes by car. The Regional centre of Barnstaple and famous beaches at Croyde, Woolacombe and Saunton are about 30 minutes. The Link Road (A361) can be reached in a similar time and leads on, in a further half hour or so, to Junction 27 of the M5 motorway, where Tiverton Parkway nearby provides rail access to London Paddington in about 2 hours.
Description - Highley Farmhouse presents elevations of painted lime render with bespoke replacement double glazed sash windows, beneath a replacement slate roof. The property has been the subject of extensive refurbishment in recent years and is basically a period shell with new interior. In addition to the main structure, other notable improvements include; new plumbing including bathrooms and kitchen, new central heating system (underfloor to the ground floor) new wiring, new apparatus for private water supply, new floor coverings, new interior decorations using breathable paint. The renovation has been sympathetically undertaken so that original features sit well with, or have been enhanced by, quality 21st Century refinements. There remains scope to convert the extensive roof space or, under permitted development, add a two storey extension to the left of the property, subject to a buyer's requirements.
The majority of the buildings are sited south of the River Heddon which runs through the property along the base of the valley. These include traditional stone buildings, more modern barns, a building with consent for commercial use and a superb, recently constructed workshop barn.
The vendors would consider selling the farmhouse and land without the buildings and limited land area south of the river. Further information about this is available from the selling agents.
