Property description

An attractive livestock/arable farm with generous 5/6 bedroom period farmhouse and flexibility to divide the accommodation, set in an accessible location. Courtyard of traditional barns with potential and a range of modern farm buildings. Ring fenced
by an excellent block of arable/pastureland. In all 121.00 acres (48.97 ha). For sale by private treaty as a whole or in up to four lots.

Situation
Barn Park Farm is set in an elevated yet tranquil position, on the western flank of Stockland Hill, between the villages of Stockland and Cotleigh in the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This former dairy farm is surrounded by rolling Devon countryside and approached
over a long private drive. Stockland has an active community with an inn, The Kings Arms, village hall, well regarded primary school, church and tennis courts. The nearby bustling market town of Honiton is well served with shops, restaurants,
sports centre and hospital, as well as a main line rail station to London Waterloo. To the south, the Jurassic Coast World Heritage site features the popular resort of Lyme Regis with its famous Cobb and sandy beach. Whilst surrounded by
beautiful countryside there are good road connections both east and west with the A30 providing access to the Cathedral city of Exeter with its excellent shopping, leisure facilities,
international airport as well as the A303 London trunk route. The county town of Taunton with its connection to the M5 and mainline station to Paddington is within easy reach.

The Property
Barn Park Farm is a handsome period farmhouse with stone and rendered elevations under a slate roof. The generous accommodation has been extended into the adjoining barn on the ground floor, to house a farm office which has recently been used as a bedroom with an accessible en-suite wet room. The original dwelling dates back over a hundred years and sympathetically blends original features such as the inglenook fireplace and beams with the conveniences of modern living. The farmhouse kitchen is at the heart of the home, with a 2 oven Heritage Range, handmade solid wood painted kitchen units with granite worktops and an integrated fridge. The dining room features a fine fireplace with bread
oven. Upstairs are four double bedrooms, two en-suite and a family bathroom. This adaptable property provides a variety of options, with a ground floor en-suite bedroom annex and a separate lounge which has previously been used an Airbnb rental. There is additional potential for enlarging the accommodation by converting further space in the adjoining farm buildings (STPP), possibly for multi-generational living or
for providing an income.
