Cross Park Farm is everything you would expect from a period North Devon smallholding and probably a bit more to boot. Originally built in 1622 the main house whilst adapted for modern day life still provides glimpses of a bygone era as it has retained many features of yesteryear. Although not currently farmed the property is perfectly set up for a variety of uses including equestrian as it boasts its own stable block with three stalls, turn out yard, tack room and hay barn. The current owners have also kept cattle and alpacas on the land whilst there is also a history of bullock farming. The land consists of four main paddocks serviced with mains water and fully enclosed. There are plenty of facilities on site to assist you in your preference of use including an open barn in excess of 54', two further large enclosed barns, a workshop, shippon and bullock stall. All this is set in the glorious North Devon countryside which in turn provides some quite simply stunning views from Exmoor in one direction to the observatory by the coast at Hartland Point in the other.
Moving back indoors, the main house is a deceptively spacious home with the added potential of further extending into the shippon subject to the relevant consents. There is a handy additional space ideally suited to visiting friends and family off the main house with sitting room, bedroom and ensuite. Back in the main house the living room boasts a pretty stone fireplace with log burning stove, open bread oven and exposed timbers. The farmhouse kitchen is a cosy space with a constant ambient heat from the solid fuel burning Rayburn, a nice space to unwind and chew the cud of the day gone by. There is a ground floor bathroom and an additional reception room, ideal for a temporary bedroom or office/study as well as an external utility room. Completing the tour, upstairs there is a triangular shaped landing which in turn leads to three double bedrooms all with sloping ceilings, two with views of the courtyard and the third looking out over the lane and field beyond.
Opportunities like this don?t present themselves to the market that often so when they do, you really need to act with urgency. This could be a lovely lifestyle change for one lucky family.
