    Located amongst a small collection of three properties, nestled within an unspoilt and peaceful part of the countryside between the villages of George Nympton and Kings Nympton, is this truly stunning former farmhouse. Believed to date from the late 17th century, The Farmhouse, which is Grade II Listed, provides a wealth of charm, character and surprising space and light throughout the beautifully restored accommodation. The current vendors have transformed this property into an impressive family home which included a complete replacement of the thatch roof in 2019.

    The charming accommodation enjoys lots of natural light and comprises, on the ground floor; enclosed entrance porch, hallway/study with adjoining utility/cloakroom. It is thought that there would be ample space with plumbing available to create a shower room, if required. A large dual aspect living room is central to this home complete with fireplace recess, housing a lined Woodwarm woodburning stove, which was also installed in 2019. An inner hallway leads through to a dual aspect country style kitchen/dining room which was upgraded by the current vendors. The first floor provides four good sized bedrooms together with a smartly appointed family bathroom.

    For layout and approximate room measurements please see the enclosed floorplan and refer to the Virtual Tour.


    The Farmhouse is initially approached via a shared entrance which leads to two private driveways, one beside the garden and one adjoining the dwelling providing parking for at least three vehicles. To the front of the property is an enclosed South-East facing patio, whilst to the rear are further paved patio areas which lead to the elevated and mainly lawned gardens. The attractive established gardens are home to a wide variety of flower and plant species, together with an allotment containing raised beds, greenhouse and fruit trees. All enjoying a good degree of privacy and seclusion with views over the unspoilt surrounding countryside.

    In all, The Farmhouse extends to about 0.32 of an acre.
