4 Bedroom Detached House For Sale in Broadwoodwidger, Lifton, Devon


A character detached four bedroom home with land and large outbuildings having plenty of income potential. There are well kept gardens, an additional small field and a former cattery which has a good client base and has only recently ceased trading. EPC rating D.

Thornmoor Farm we understand dates back to the 18th century and is a unique home with a wealth of potential and has so much to offer a range of buyers. The four bedroom home has plenty of character throughout, many modern comforts and outstanding views over the gardens or towards Bodmin Moor. It has well-proportioned accommodation and includes a large kitchen/dining room, spacious lounge and conservatory. The adjacent barn benefits from consent for unrestricted residential use and is a huge asset to the home. The plot which extends to some 1.5 acres in total, includes two agricultural barns, a log cabin, shepherds hut and a former cattery including store areas and office which had a license for 32 cats and has only recently closed. Perfect for those looking for commercial possibilities or a country home, Thornmoor has something to offer a wide range of buyers and an early internal inspection is highly recommended.
The following is a quotation from the home owner:
"The first thing I noticed when we moved to Thornmoor Farm was how friendly and welcoming the locals were, all stopping to introduce themselves as they passed by and have invited us to various activities such as pub quizzes etc.
We have enjoyed the peace and quiet here and the abundance of wildlife that visit us, we even have a barn owl that has taken up residence in one of the outbuildings. The location is excellent, although it feels really rural, we are only a short drive to the A30 and can access coastline in Devon and Cornwall or visit moorland all in a short space of time. Roadford lake with beautiful walks, cycling and water sport activities is just a few minute's drive away and was a favourite place to take our old dog to explore. A versatile property that is peaceful and private and can be whatever you want it to be".
Beyond the rendered exterior, which is under a rag slated roof, lies the accommodation which is well appointed and proportioned. The entrance porch opens into a large 'L' shaped dual aspect kitchen/dining room which is well fitted out with a range of matching units. The roof has light assisted through roof windows and has roll top work surfaces and matching wall and base units with glass display cabinets. The sink is strategically positioned to enjoy the best of the stunning far reaching views over the surrounding farmland towards Bodmin Moor. There is plenty of room for a good sized dining table. Included in the sale is an electric cooker, dishwasher and an oil fired Rayburn which fires the central heating system. The room has a tiled floor and modern downlighting. Moving through, the inner hallway has the stairs which have a feature balustrade and ascend to the first floor. The main lounge is dominated by the floor to ceiling feature fireplace which has a wooden mantle with inset a clome oven, and a wood burning stove set on a stone hearth. The room is great for accommodating large families and comes into its own at Christmas time. A lovely addition many years ago was the splendid UPVC conservatory which is a great place to relax whilst reading a book and enjoying wonderful views over the garden. Completing the ground floor is the family bathroom/WC which has a mains shower over the panelled bath.
On the first floor are four bedrooms, the main bedroom has two built in double wardrobes with sliding doors. Bedroom two (like the main bedroom) has views over the garden and stripped floorboards. The remaining two bedrooms could be used as either single rooms or hobbies or office space. The home has oil fired central heating, UPVC double glazing and a 4KW PV solar panel system which has generated significant payments over the past 12 months including the latest payment of £239.87 which spans from 4th March to 30th May 2019.
One of the benefits of the property is the adjacent and most attractive detached stone barn which on 13th November 2018 under application number 1/0597/2018/FUL had planning permission granted to be converted into a spacious one double bedroom single storey barn. This accommodation could be let as either a holiday or long term let to provide a valuable secondary income or could perhaps be sold off separately or ancillary use for a dependent relative.

They have power, light and water if needed. A small log cabin has been erected for the use of the sellers present business.
