This property will appeal to a range of buyers due to all that it offers. Located approx. 4 miles from Crediton and 4 miles from the A30 at Cheriton Bishop, it’s a semi-rural property that’s still accessible. The accommodation is in the form of a large (extended) brick bungalow with 5 bedrooms and good size living spaces. There are views, gardens, parking and numerous outbuildings that would suit most needs. Foremost it’s a residential property sat in 1.3 acres. With its current set up, there are two zones, the “property” side gives living space with gardens and parking, a double garage, an office, stables and a small yard and paddock. The “working” side provides a larger gated yard, large and secure barns as well as animal pens and enclosures, another paddock and some further open barns. It has permission for a business to be run from here although only if it’s needed.
The bungalow itself is large with plenty of light and has views to the West so the afternoon and evening sun is at the rear. There’s an entrance hall which keeps the 5 bedrooms to one half of the property with the master bedroom having its own ensuite shower room and double doors opening on to the patio. The 4 remaining bedrooms are all of a good size and served by an additional bathroom. There’s a living/dining room which is a brilliant space, again with the views and a wood-burner for those cosy winter nights. The kitchen is up to date and works very well with a central table giving flexible eating arrangements. There’s a utility room, further WC/shower room and an entrance porch for the storage of those essential boots and coats.
The driveway is accessed via electric gates and into a large parking area. The front garden is private and offers lawn and seating areas and a productive growing area. A pathway links to the rear garden with a raised patio to enjoy the views and then the lawned garden slopes away. There’s a double garage (6.08m x 5.15m), a fully insulated office (5.9m x 3.08m - with commercial consent) and a stable block with a 2.9m x 2.9m stable and 2 further stores (previously stables).
In addition to the gardens and two small paddocks, ideal for a small number of animals and there’s various pens and enclosures that can be utilised. A further gateway separates the property’s driveway from the yard and here is further parking and storage, a larger steel barn (approx. 9m x 6m with agricultural use) and with two sets of twin doors. This is an excellent store or workshop. There are further barns too including the “cow shed” (approx. 5.4m x 5.8m) and the “lambing shed”. It’s worth noting that for those looking for more paddock, this could be easily achieved should the yard area be surplus to requirements.
The property really does feel like a mini-farm with plenty of space to enjoy and all in an accessible position in Mid Devon.
