LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!
Set down a long PRIVATE DRIVE in an idyllic rural location, is this charming Grade II Listed DETACHED Devon Longhouse set within approximately 15 ACRES of Pasture and formal gardens. This offers a superb lifestyle opportunity for anyone seeking a small/equine holding and a quiet secluded rural retreat away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

There is a substantial range of stone barns which could, subject to the necessary consents, be converted for a variety of uses including a range of holiday lets, workshops or stables. This attractive period farmhouse offers a wealth of charm and character with many original features having been retained such as exposed beams, inglenook fireplace and thatched roof. There is an adjoining garage with one bedroom apartment over which could be used as annexed accommodation for a dependant relative or as a holiday let/Air BnB for additional income. Although requiring some modernisation the property offers a blank canvas for a potential purchaser to refurbish to one's own taste and standards. Properties of this type and locality are rare to the market and therefore we would highly advise an early inspection.
