DESCRIPTION A rare opportunity to purchase part of a former Devon Longhouse which offers immense character and charm. Arscott is a Grade II listed home which has been lovingly maintained and has not been on the open market since the vendor purchased the property in the early 1990's. The accommodation briefly comprises of a delightful open thatched storm porch, entrance hall, cloakroom, farmhouse kitchen/breakfast room with oil fired Stanley range cooker, superb triple aspect 28' sitting room, conservatory, inner lobby leading to a dining room (currently used as a study). 24' Master bedroom with en-suite facilities, two further double bedrooms and bathroom.

The discerning of purchasers will appreciate the wealth of features such as exposed timbers, beams, bespoke wooden internal doors, window sills and fireplaces. We understand the original part of the property could date back to the 13th Century, but mostly from the 16th Century and in more recent times a large two storey extension was built which incorporates the lounge and master bedroom, both with triple aspect windows.

Approached via a private tree lined long lane and with superb gardens and grounds of approximately 7.6 acres including woodland the property also benefits an attached stone and cob barn which could provide additional two storey accommodation or a very fine dining hall, subject to any relevant planning consents.

The rear aspect affords South facing views over the formal gardens, pastureland, woodland and surrounding countryside.

We have been advised by the vendor that the roof was re-thatched around 10 years ago and the ridge in the last 12 months.
