North Hall is a beautiful Grade II Listed detached former farmhouse, built in the early 1500’s. It is found in a wonderful rural setting, surrounded by Devon Countryside offering stunning views in a very peaceful setting and yet just a mile or so from Iddesleigh’s Duke of York public house.
The spacious accommodation extends to over 2,000sqft, with all main rooms facing west with spectacular views and many character features having been retained including fireplaces and exposed beams. The property benefits from oil-fired central heating and timber double glazed windows (approval was granted) to the front.
There are four double bedrooms and a family bathroom upstairs, served by two staircases which has been useful to offer B&B accommodation. There is scope to offer one half as a holiday cottage, or for dual-family occupancy if desired, just by converting the study into a kitchen (subject to permissions). Lapsed planning was also in place for adding two en-suites to bedrooms 3 and 4, so it is likely this could be reinstated.
Downstairs we have a fantastic living room complete with fireplace and wood-burning stove (flu & chimney checked and approved), an impressive dining room again with a lovely fireplace (capped but wood-burner could be added) and a spacious farmhouse kitchen including an oil-fired AGA. To the rear of the cottage is a utility room with pantry, store containing the 2018 fitted boiler, a wet room and the study.
Outside: In total the ground extends to 2.45 acres which nicely surrounds the main home. There is masses of parking via the private driveway to the front and formal gardens with a paddock beyond and a further paddock to the rear.
Outbuildings: The former threshing barn (9m x 4m, plus attached potting shed) is a largely cob and stone structure and offers scope to create two storey ancillary accommodation to the main home if desired (subject to permissions). To the side is a covered carport. The more modern stable barn (approx. 12m x 5m) has just had a new roof and veranda (2020) and would be a great place to keep animals including a horse with some small alterations. There is also a wood store and animal shelter.
The current owner has made many improvements in the last 4 years including a complete rewire, re-thatching the front with the more durable water reed, renewing windows and having a new boiler installed, as well as many cosmetic improvements.

AGENTS NOTE : This property is owned by a family member of an employee of Helmores.
The property is situated just outside of Iddesleigh, which is a delightful and unspoilt village, well known for its popular public house and surrounding countryside associated with the book and film "War Horse". In fact, the author Michael Morpurgo revealed that conversations had by the fireside in the Duke of York inspired him to write his best selling novel. The War Horse Farm Park is nearby and the house is adjacent to 'the War Horse Valley'. The nearest amenities can be found in Hatherleigh which is close by and a bit further on, the town of Okehampton hosts a more comprehensive range of amenities including shops, supermarkets, a hospital, leisure centre and schooling.
