Farway, Colyton, EX24

Guide price

Bedrooms: 3
A three bedroom thatched detached Grade II * period former farmhouse believed to date back to the mid 16th century situated in approximately 0.8 acres, occupying a stunning rural location.

This much loved home has been in the same farming family for over a hundred years. The property has many period features such as beams, plank and muntin screening, a bath stone fireplace, window seats and a turret stair case to name a few. Woodbridge Farm has had many improvements over the years with parts now in need of some further updating. The sale thereby offers any buyer real potential to make this characterful home their own. One improvement worthy of note is the stunning hand built bespoke kitchen which was only done about six years ago.

The accommodation includes on the ground floor, a kitchen with utility area off it and entrance hallway with stairs to the first floor. Access to what would have been the through passage with exposed rubble wall and door to garden and access to the lounge. The lounge has a door to the turret stair case, door to a porch area and opening to the dining room which also has a door to the porch area. The porch area has a door out of the front of the house and a door to what seems to of been some sort of outbuilding with a cobbled floor and access to a separate WC. This area has been relatively untouched and offers huge potential.

On the first floor there is a landing to bedroom one and access to a modern family bathroom that has a Jack and Jill door to bedroom two which in turn has access to the turret and bedroom three. All three bedrooms are large doubles.

The property further benefits from dual aspect windows in most rooms and oil fired central heating with radiators in all principle rooms.

Farway is a pretty small village with a Church and primary school whilst Colyton itself lies approximately 4 miles to the east and provides a thriving local community with its parish church, town stores and shops, medical practice, public houses and the renowned Colyton Grammar School in nearby Colyford.

The larger centres of Honiton and Axminster offer a good range of everyday shopping and banking facilities. Exeter lies within 20 miles of the property affording an extensive range of commercial, educational and recreational facilities befitting those of an important regional and administrative centre, together with a wide range of primary, secondary and further education facilities. Despite its rural position the property enjoys easy access to the surrounding districts and further afield with access to the M5 motorway available at Exeter (J29) and Taunton (J25). Main line rail services are also available at Axminster and Honiton. Access to the A30/303 trunk route at Honiton provides an easy link to London and the South East, with international airports at Exeter and Bristol. To the south lies the Jurassic Coast, a World Heritage Site, with pretty coastal towns and villages such as Lyme Regis, Seaton and Sidmouth.

To the front of the property is an area of lawn, access to the house and a door to a wood store. To the rear, access is gained via a large concrete driveway with a gate to the main formal garden, a brick built shed and access to a paddock area with 2 good sized open barns currently used for livestock housing.

The main rear garden is mainly laid to lawn with a stream to the rear with a wooden bridge over. There is a useful greenhouse and at one end of the main house is an attached building with light and power which is used as an office and at the other end is further access to the linked outbuilding.

The property sits within approximately 0.8 acres with a further 8.16 acres of pasture land nearby available by separate negotiation.
