SITUATION

The A361 North Devon link road provides easy access to Junction 27 of the M5 motorway, alongside which lies Tiverton Parkway railway station. Hutswell Farm is very well situated for anybody who needs to commute for either school or business. The cathedral city of Exeter is just 20 miles to the south and has all amenities associated with its size. The area is very well known for country sports and pursuits, with Exmoor National Park approximately 8 miles distant.

DESCRIPTION

Hutswell Farm is a traditional cob and stone thatched farmhouse. The south facing property sits in about 12 acres and is surrounded by unspoilt rolling Devon countryside. Protected by its land in an idyllic setting, with woodlands providing a convenient supply of logs for the winter, this property would make a stunning family home.

The addition of a beautifully crafted barn conversion which can either be used as additional guest accommodation or to provide an income adds to the appeal of this beautiful home.

ACCOMMODATION

The entrance hall leads into the kitchen/breakfast room with Aga, wall and base units with silestone work surface over and inset sink with mixer tap, built-in fridge and wine cooler, oven, hob and microwave. Adjoining the kitchen is the utility room, with good storage and work space and a cloakroom beside. The sitting room is delightful with a huge inglenook fireplace with bread oven and log burning stove. A plank and muntin oak screen forms the rear wall dividing the sitting room from the study, which is used as an occasional fourth bedroom.

The stairs rise from the sitting room to the first floor landing with feature exposed wall beams. The three bedrooms are full of character with exposed beams in the walls and vaulted ceilings. A well appointed family bathroom completes the first floor accommodation.

THE BARN

The barn has been beautifully converted to provide a stunning bedroom/sitting room with oak floors, a high vaulted ceiling with exposed A frames, a tall window on the end wall and log burning stove. A spacious wet room which is fully tiled completes the accommodation.

GARDENS AND GROUNDS

Delightful gardens and grounds surround the property. Beside the house is a gravel parking area and wooden open fronted car port with a log store to the side. Behind is a substantial oak store/workshop. A path leads up some steps to an area of mature shrub beds with stone walls, and a lawn which rises in wide steps with a mature beech hedge at the top forming a boundary between the gardens immediately around the house and the lawn beyond. The lawn is hedged and fenced and a gate leads out to a green lane and the bulk of the land, which lies to the south and is pasture and rough grazing. A further area of woodland lies to the northeast of the property.
