A rare opportunity to acquire a ring fenced residential holding that has not been on the market for almost half a century affording considerable privacy being situated at the end of a drive and centered upon a detached dwelling in need of renovation and modernisation, a range of farm buildings and 62 acres of pasture & woodland.

Blackley Down Farm comes to the market for the first time since 1971 following the vendor's decision to downsize. The sale of the property therefore represents a rare opportunity to acquire an adaptable residential holding occupying a delightful rural position within an extremely sought-after part of East Devon. The property is centered upon a detached house which is now in need of modernisation and refurbishment and affords great potential to create an attractive family home.

The excellent combination of buildings together with well fenced versatile pasture and woodland provide an excellent setting to the house and afford considerable agricultural, conservation and sporting appeal.

Blackley Down Farm extends in total to about 62.06 Acres (25.14 Ha) and is offered for sale as a whole or in up to two lots as detailed in these sale particulars.

Blackley Down Farm occupies an outstanding and private rural position situated within a picturesque East Devon valley, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and widely regarded as some of the most attractive countryside in the county.

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.
