SITUATION

Luton is a small hamlet within the parish of Broadhembury and a short distance from the village of Payhembury with a pub, church, primary school and community shop. The local vicinity is unspoilt, with gentle hills and valleys creating a beautiful rural setting. The larger nearby village of Feniton also has a station on the Waterloo line.

Honiton, to the south east, offers a good range of amenities with its selection of independent shops and twice weekly market. The Cathedral City of Exeter lies to the west with a comprehensive array of retail and leisure facilities. The M5 is easily accessible at J28 (Cullompton), providing great links to Cornwall to the south and Bristol and London to the north and east. There are regular rail services to London Paddington from Tiverton Parkway and Exeter International Airport offers a number of domestic and international flights.

DESCRIPTION

Godfreys Farm is a Grade II Listed farmhouse and is understood to date back to the late medieval period. The property has served as a fantastic family home for over twenty-five years with many improvements being made during this time. However, there is now plenty of potential for a new owner to continue to improve and modernise, subject to the necessary consents. The accommodation is welcoming and spacious with a wealth of delightful character features including beams, fireplaces, stonework and plank and muntin screens.

The covered porch opens through to the reception hall leading to the main reception rooms and inner hall. The sitting room has a central open fire with an attractive wood surround, the dining room has a red brick inglenook with an open fire and to the rear is the garden room with two double doors opening to the garden.

The kitchen is extensively fitted with a range of wall and base units and includes a fireplace with a timber lintel over housing the oil fired Rayburn. There are useful service rooms including a utility, lobby and ground floor bathroom.

On the first floor are five bedrooms, all a good size with views over the surrounding gardens. There is a family bathroom and separate cloakroom.

To the west is the paddock which is enclosed and surrounded by mature treelined hedgebanks with a separate access. In total the property extends to 2.2 acres.
