Mentioned in the Domesday book, this antique property is believed to have been owned in 1068 by Baldwin Fitzgilbert, the sheriff of Devon and builder of Okehampton Castle. Although the exact age is unknown, the Grade II* listed property is thought to have a medieval core which was altered and extended in the 17th/18th century and is approximately 3600 sq.ft
Having had major renovation works over the last few years the main farmhouse is comfortable and cosy with three spacious bedrooms, four reception rooms with wood burning stoves, 2 shower rooms, 1 bathroom and cloakrooms. All aspects look towards the south facing garden and therefore the property benefits from a wealth of natural light.
In total the land amounts to 6.7 acres with areas spread amongst the inner and outer yards and through the enclosure of the various outbuildings. The pasture land to the rear of the barns stretches around the property in a 'C' like shape and can be split as the buyer wishes. The current owners have a delightful orchard to the side, established sun garden to rear, and pasture land beyond housing sheep. Mature oak trees surround the boundaries to give a great degree of shelter and privacy.
This is where the possibilities are endless. With over a dozen traditional farm outbuildings of all shapes and sizes included in the sale of the property, there is fantastic development potential, subject to relevant consents. The two-storey annexe barn already has consent for a 3 bedroom accommodation and has all services connected. Measurements of each outbuilding can be found below.
