Full Details

Great Ley Farm is an imposing Grade II Listed detached farmhouse, found in a lovely rural position just 4.5 miles to Central Exeter, with lovely walks in every direction and numerous villages offering great food and a warm welcome all under 2.5 miles away. The planning here allows for the main house to be extended AND a separate barn to provide a large four bedroom, four bathroom home – which could be for two families living side-by-side, or it could be sold separately in the future if desired.

The character filled accommodation reaches over 200sqm / 2,200sqft, with scope to extend further if desired (see planning permission below). There are four double bedrooms upstairs, with the master adjoining a large dressing room which offers scope to include an en-suite if desired. The family bathroom completes the first floor.

The ground floor includes a long open-plan room with kitchen, dining and living areas. There is an oil-fired Aga and a Neff hob and oven for cooking and a ‘Jotul’ wood-burner set within a beautiful fireplace with bread oven. The living room also has a fireplace and matching wood-burning stove. Both Swedish stoves were relined in late 2021 which has improved the efficiency massively. There is a sunroom, a boot room, a separate study and a music/games room which gives access to the attached barn with planning to be incorporated within the accommodation. The plank and muntin exposed wall in the entrance hall is another special feature here.


The plot extends to 3.4 acres in total. The field/paddock and fruit tree orchard has been wire fenced to make it completely stock proof. The field has road access and natural water and the lane through the orchards to the stable block (light, power & water) is absolutely beautiful in the Spring and Summer. The gardens are a great size, have large sweeping lawns and an array of pretty flowers and mature trees.


There is masses of parking within the horse shoe of barns, with impressive double height electronically controlled gates securing the whole area and a number of open fronted carports too. The wide selection of barns offer fantastic flexibility for storage, parking and livestock, plus dog kennels and dog shower room!

PLANNING PERMISSION – Helmores hold plans, or see East Devon Planning Website
