DESCRIPTION & LOCATION:
A 15.85 acre farm in a peaceful rural location enjoying beautiful panoramic views. The property is set in the tiny hamlet of Woolfardisworthy comprising just a small church and a few other houses, but close to Kennerleigh with its community shop. The property enjoys a peaceful setting with the house enjoying wonderful views across the grounds and beautiful countryside of this part of Devon and enjoying a South facing aspect. The extensive modern home has been created from extending an older 1980’s house with Eco design features throughout including wood pellet Bio-mass central heating with underfloor heating on the ground floor, solar PV electric panels for assisting electricity and generating an income, solar assisted hot water and rain water harvesting system. The house is approached by its own private drive leading up to parking area giving access to the gardens beyond. A lower fork of the drive serves the farm and farm buildings accessing a brick former coach house with stores and car port parking area and also a detached cob barn which now has planning consent for conversion into a large self-contained three bedroom annexe. Beyond are three modern farm buildings one of which has had equestrian use in the past, an extensive fruit cage for soft fruit production and beyond this a gate leads into the main body of the land, with a young mixed orchard planted in one area, and extensive gently south sloping pasture fields with well drained soil leading down to a secluded area with trees and a stream on the boundary. The property provides the opportunity for a number of different sorts of income including renting out the land or using it for livestock or horse grazing or for a smallholding use.
