Higher Nichols Nymett occupies an attractive rural setting within a small hamlet between North Tawton and Bow. The larger market towns of Okehampton (8 miles) and Crediton (10 miles) each have an excellent range of day-to-day amenities and it has good access to the A30 (7.8 miles) providing a direct link to the city of Exeter and the M5 motorway.

This detached Grade II Listed farmhouse dates back to the 16th Century, of rendered cob and stone elevations beneath a thatched roof (largely re-thatched October 2015), the property offers incredibly spacious and adaptable accommodation of over 3,700sq ft. The property enjoys a wealth of character features including many exposed ceiling beams, original fireplaces, exposed stonework, leaded light windows and wooden brace and ledge doors.

The accommodation includes a large reception hall/breakfast room with a wood burning Rayburn, all three main reception rooms have feature fireplaces. The recently installed kitchen with underfloor heating has a range of units with oak surfaces, range-style cooker and integral dishwasher. Off the kitchen is utility room with door to the rear courtyard. Of further note on the ground floor is a study / an en-suite double bedroom plus family bathroom. Two staircases lead to the first-floor accommodation with four further double bedrooms, two of which have en-suite shower rooms.

The current owners have undertaken a number of improvements, as well as the visible improvements of the new thatch, front porch, kitchen and bathrooms, major structural improvements including roof support upgrades with a new A-frame along with wall cross-ties ensure the long-term integrity of the building.

Outside: The plot extends to almost an acre in total, the property is approached from the lane via a five-bar wooden gate leading to a large gravelled parking and turning area. Steps lead down to a cobbled seating area. To the left of the house is a sizable level lawn interspersed with a number of flower and shrub beds. To the right is a detached stone and cob BARN providing excellent storage as well as potential for conversion to living accommodation, subject to the necessary consents. Beyond the seating area is an enclosed level paddock surrounded by fencing and some well-established trees. The property adjoins open farmland and there are some excellent views from several of the rooms and much of the grounds.

The Annexe - The attached annexe comprises a self-contained unit with kitchen, sitting room, double bedroom and bathroom plus private garden. This has its own access and parking area and offers a great opportunity to generate an income as a holiday cottage (STP).

NORTH TAWTON is a small town, built alongside the banks of ‘The River Taw’. Settlements in and around the ‘Taw Valley’ experience a haven-like quality, between the often steep-edged hillsides – a contrast to other areas of more open farmland. The town has a selection of shops, a primary school, The Fountain and The White Hart pubs and an undeniably pretty square. For more choice, by way of facilities the larger town of Okehampton is only 5 miles up the road – where access to the A30 dual carriageway (a link to the City of Exeter) can also be found. North Tawton, as with many Devon towns has a prime medieval church, with a west spire adorned with oak shingles. The town is also known for its superb creamery. The Taw Valley Creamery (est 1974) produces award -winning cheeses, revered locally and nationally.
