Farway, Colyton, EX24

Guide price

Bedrooms: 3
A unique property affording considerable character and set within delightful gardens occupying a favoured village location within the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

In the ownership of the same family since 1966, The Old Water Mill provides a rare opportunity for purchasers to acquire a village property steeped in character and history. It is understood that the original property dates back to the early 20th century and was built as an estate workshop for Netherton Hall. It was subsequently used to generate electricity for Netherton Hall itself, until the arrival of the main grid in the district. In 1973 the building was extended by the current vendors' family to provide more flexible residential accommodation, while retaining the character of the original building. The property now provides a mix of open plan living, individual rooms and a mix of traditional and spiral staircases. Constructed of brick under a corrugated pitched roof the property has been little changed for a number of years and therefore provides an exciting opportunity for potential purchasers to modernise and update as required.


Please note that there is a considerable drop in levels by the former water wheel and viewers are asked to respect the safety tape and to stay away from the edge of the wheel.

We would further note that there is a spiral staircase in the living/dining room.

The property is situated close to the centre of the popular village of Farway. Farway is a highly regarded village affording a primary school and lies approximately 3.5 miles to the south of Honiton and approximately 5 miles to the west of Colyton.

The town of Honiton provides a good range of everyday shopping, educational and banking facilities including a train station and access to the A30. The city of Exeter lies approximately 20 miles to the west 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.

The gardens are a particularly attractive feature of the property, providing a delightful mix of lawns, shrubs, a patio adjacent to the dwelling and a rockery area adjoining the static water wheel, which remains purely for decorative purposes. The property is accessed directly off the council lane, leading to a paved driveway and gravelled parking area, providing off-road parking for a number of vehicles.
