A wonderfully located and private Grade II Listed farmhouse with 1.2 acres. 3 reception rooms, farmhouse kitchen, 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms (2 en suite).

Situation - The property occupies a wonderfully peaceful and private location in rural Mid Devon at the end of a long private lane. The two villages of Colebrooke (2 miles) and Spreyton (4 miles) offer a range of facilities with Spreyton having the renowned Tom Cobley pub. The town of Crediton (7 miles) has a full range of local amenities including excellent schooling, medical centre, shopping, supermarkets, banks and sporting and recreational pursuits. The university and cathedral city of Exeter (15 miles) has a comprehensive range of amenities and facilities befitting a centre of its importance, including mainline railway stations on the London Paddington and Waterloo lines and an international airport with daily flights to London. The northern boundary of the Dartmoor National Park lies 5 miles to the south of the property, which has many thousands of beautiful unspoilt moorland acres in which to enjoy a wide range of outdoor pursuits including walking, riding, cycling and fishing.

Description - Road Farm is a substantial detached Grade II Listed farmhouse which the Listed Buildings notes suggest dates from the late 16th Century with later extensions. Of rendered cob and stone walls beneath a slate tiled roof, it offers characterful and spacious accommodation of nearly 3,750 sq ft. The character features include cross passage hall with plank and muntin screen, original fireplaces with bread ovens, much exposed ceiling beams and window seats.

Accommodation - Off the cross passage hallway is the farmhouse kitchen with original brick inglenook fireplace and bread oven, and space to house an Aga, a range of fitted eye and base level units and tiled floor. At the eastern end of the property are two sitting rooms; one with a lovely stone fireplace. Of the kitchen is the formal dining room with exposed ceiling beams. There is a garden room off this room and a utility room off the kitchen. From the rear lobby is a bathroom and well room/boot room and large store room.

Two staircases lead to the first floor landing with five bedrooms, the master of which has an en suite bathroom, together with family bathroom with oak boarded floor, free-standing bath, shower cubicle, wash basin and wc.

The Grounds - From the road a long lane (approximately 1,850') leads down to a five-bar gate giving access to the driveway and parking and turning area beside the house. A further five-bar gate leads to a further driveway giving access to the double garage (24 x 19). There is an enclosed courtyard between the house and the garage. The southern facade which supports climbing plants including wisteria, overlooks landscaped level lawns with a range of colourful and mature flower and shrub beds as well as a range of ornamental trees. There is a brick paved terrace with pergola, timber decked seating area and several interconnected ornamental ponds. To the west of the house is a paddock area and to the north is a garden/orchard area planted with a number of trees and shrubs as well as a raised timber studio/summerhouse. Due to its position, there are some excellent views from the first floor across the adjoining countryside to Dartmoor beyond.

Agents Note - To the rear of the property is a detached barn with full planning to convert to a further residential unit. This comes with a courtyard of further outbuildings, including stables, as well as a further 3 acres of largely level paddocks. Please contact us for further details.
