This is a perfect opportunity to make your plans and aspirations of a dream lifestyle in a spectacular countryside setting in Devon come true.
Ford Mill Farm is arranged over approximately 8.75 acres of level land that incorporates the main Farmhouse, 2 adjoining Holiday Lets, a range of Outbuildings, meadows, paddocks and a lake.
This property will suit anyone who either wants to live a good and quiet life in privacy in their own kingdom or those who may want to make use of the grounds for equestrian purposes or, perhaps, to start a venture such as a fishery or a glamping business.
The 2 holiday lets are active and currently generate a yearly income of approximately £45,000. The main Farmhouse is beautifully presented throughout and expertly blends the characters and features of an older building with modern flourishes such as can be seen in the vaulted main Bedroom which has an En-suite and access to a Balcony.
The grounds are ideally altogether in one piece and the south-facing gardens can be viewed from the Farmhouse. There are lovely level lawns, fields and paddocks to wander at your leisure and a beautiful lake to sit beside. There is plenty of room to park all manner of vehicles at the site and the Outbuildings include a Stable, a Double Garage and Store and a partially finished 40' x 40' Barn.
To get an instant feeling of what this property offers, we would highly recommend viewing the accompanying virtual tour we have created for this exceptional residence. We invite questions and viewings and hope to meet you at the property.

Outside Ford Mill Farm sits within approximately 8.75 acres of largely level grounds that are kept to a very high standard. The grounds are all conveniently situated within the boundary of the property and there is a high degree of privacy to be enjoyed.
Opposite the house is a block of 3 stables which measure 14' x 12', 13'4 x 11'5 and 13'8 x 12'3 - 1 of which has been turned into a training room. Attached to this is an old stone Barn which measures 60' x 17'.

The sweeping lawns provide an exceptional space to be enjoyed and there is a lake for fishing enthusiasts which is registered with certification in place. The River Torridge forms the southern border. There are a variety of areas to be enjoyed with much of the ground being bordered by a gentle river.
There is so much scope to these grounds that they really need to be explored to be fully appreciated but our aerial photos and videos will give a good indication.
Useful Information This property has owned solar panels installed that greatly contribute to the cost of the bills for the main house and the holiday lets. An income of approximately £400 a year is also generated from them.
We have taken some photos of the commercial listings of these holiday properties and have added them to our current listing.
It should be noted that the Kitchen worktop surfaces have been upgraded since the photos were taken. Both of the holiday properties have outside spaces of their own.
Due to Ford Mill Dairy and Ford Mill Shippen being holiday let, we do not have any current photos to display. If you are interested to see some pre-existing photos then please contact the office.
