SITUATION

The property is positioned in an accessible location on the edge of the small village of Alfington between the vibrant market town of Honiton and the pretty country town of Ottery St Mary. The farmhouse enjoys a sunny aspect and is well placed for access to the B3177 which links to the A30 and Ottery St Mary, along with a regular bus service.

 

Alfington has a church and a small village hall, whilst Ottery St Mary, home to the well-respected Kings School, has a host of independent shops, pubs and restaurants, a large Sainsbury store, a sports and leisure centre and a doctors surgery.

 

Honiton offers a wider selection of shops and facilities, as well as a train station on the Exeter to London Waterloo line. The Cathedral City of Exeter lies some 14 miles to the West.

 

The coast at Sidmouth, a World Heritage site, is to the South.

DESCRIPTION

Built of stone and cob elevations under a slate roof, the farmhouse has a wealth of character features including exposed cruck and ceiling beams, plank and muntin screen, window seats and fireplaces. A large former granary barn adjoining the farmhouse has been renovated with glazed Oak doors, with further opportunities to convert, subject to consents.

 

As is typical of a former farmhouse the accommodation is centred around a large kitchen, fitted with a range of units, Belfast sink and an oil-fired Aga set within a large brick fireplace. Off the kitchen is the living room with an inglenook fireplace around a wood burning stove. The double aspect sitting room has two window seats and a fireplace. Beyond the entrance hall is the dining room with some of the more outstanding features of the house, including beautiful clay tiled floor and character timber mullion window. On the ground floor is a utility and WC.

 

On the first floor are four bedrooms with exposed cruck beams. The family bathroom has a claw foot roll top bath.
