RARE OPPORTUNITY - A most attractive property comprising a four/five bedroom farmhouse with barns, three successfully run holiday cottages and having idyllic grounds of approximately three and a half acres.
Bulverton Well Farm was originally part of the Sidmouth Manor Estate and is Grade II Listed, the original farmhouse dating back to the 17th century. An impressive courtyard entrance of two storey barns provides lots of parking and storage and gives access to the farmhouse and garaging. The majority of the barns have been converted into three successful and well appointed holiday cottages and the remaining barn which links the holiday cottages to the main farmhouse offers further potential for conversion subject to the usual planning permissions and building regulations. This is currently used for hobbies/storage areas.
The main farmhouse is now in need of a little modernisation, however, retains much character and charm and includes a large Inglenook fireplace with bread oven, along with exposed beams, timbers and stone work. The accommodation is arranged over two floors and includes three/four reception rooms, along with a large kitchen/b’fast room, four/five bedrooms and four bath/shower rooms. Oil fired central heating is installed. In more recent years the farmhouse was extended to provide a large drawing room which enjoys a lovely triple aspect overlooking the gardens.
The complex includes approximately three and half acres of grounds, the majority being formal gardens which adjoin the farmhouse and holiday cottages.
The gardens are beautifully kept and offer lots of privacy and there is excellent storage provided by a large implement shed, a detached former cider barn and garden store, which was a former dairy. The grounds also include a pasture field situated immediately on the opposite side of Bulverton Road.
The three holiday cottages have been sympathetically converted and benefit from having a separate entrance to the main farmhouse again on Bulverton Road. The cottages comprise one, two and three bedroom accommodation, all full of character and having their own adjoining area of courtyard garden. There is also a separate laundry room along with lots of parking and large lawned areas for the guests to enjoy.
The garaging is accessed from the courtyard entrance. Currently used for storage, the garage area measures 7.0m x 5.0m. There is also an adjoining workshop.
