Shebbear, Beaworthy Offers in the Region Of £485,000

Believed to be over 300 years old and with a wealth of history, having been the Village Inn, the Post Office and the family home of the original farm, Church Farmhouse occupies a dominant position in the very centre of this attractive village square at the heart of Shebbear with the characterful village Church to the south and open farmland to the north. If you're looking for character, style, quality, finesse and boutique-style living, then this property surely offers it all. This superbly presented detached family house provides spacious accommodation with the most beautiful private gardens and the benefit of a larger than average single garage and additional parking. Amongst the numerous character features of note are the huge flagstone slate floors in the Kitchen/Breakfast Room and Utility Room, exposed stained or painted beams to the principle reception rooms and bedrooms. There are also deep stone fireplaces with wood burning stoves and in the Kitchen, the original 1940's solid fuel 'Rayburn' range backed up by a modern oil-fired central heating boiler. Truly a wonderful house offering the next owner a stylish lifestyle in a very convenient location.
