This charming Grade II listed property is exceptional in so many ways. It has a wonderful history, being a former farmhouse believed to date all the way back to the 17th Century. There are a variety of period features still in place that have been lovingly retained throughout a recent major restoration at the property.
The garden sweeps around the front and side of the house and provides a variety of places to sit out and enjoy the calming surrounding environment. The sound of birdsong fills the air and the sheep over the fence are adorable to behold.
The rugged North Devon Coastline is not far from your doorstep and the walk down to it is spectacular.
The house, itself, has 4 generous Bedrooms, 2 Bathroom / Shower Rooms and 3 Reception Rooms providing plenty of options for where to pass the time and relax.
There is plentiful driveway parking in addition to a spacious Detached Garage.
We cannot recommend this home enough and we would love to meet you here and show you around.
