A substantial Grade II listed 7 bedroom detached house of great historical interest, retaining an abundance of period character bordering the River Torridge just 2 miles from Bideford Town. The property sits in about 2.5 acres of level gardens and grounds including a 1.1 acre paddock and there are a number of outbuildings offering scope for development (subject to planning permission).
Immediately adjacent to the house and available by separate negotiations is a further 1 acre of level land.

Notable historical features of the house include a flat Tudor Arch over the main entrance door which dates to around the 15th century and there have been later additions to it, with a sundial dated 1750 above the entrance and articles being found in the grounds dating from 1420. Pillmouth Farm was also used in the Napoleonic wars as a prisoner of war camp for 500 prisoners with one of the barns still retaining metal bars on the windows and musket balls and clay pipes having been found in the paddock which is named 'Sentry Orchard'.

This unique and very attractive property provides almost 5000 square feet of tastefully presented accommodation and occupies a splendid peaceful setting with far reaching views towards the River Torridge and over open countryside beyond.

Throughout the house are many attractive character features including beamed ceilings, exposed stonework and large stone inglenook fireplaces. The period character is blended with a classic country style kitchen with a large AGA and there are stylish modern bathroom facilities.

At the front of the house is a delightful south facing lawned garden with path to a covered entrance and the impressive front door which opens into the main hallway. From the hall is access to a useful laundry room and a cloakroom.

The dining room is double aspect with a high beamed ceiling and a large open stone fireplace with wood-burner inset and there are views over the garden.

The sitting room also has a beamed ceiling and walls of exposed brickwork with inset beams. There is also another impressive inglenook fireplace with inset wood-burning stove and attractive herringbone pattern wooden flooring.

The kitchen breakfast room is fitted with an extensive range of bespoke country style oak units with wood and tiled worktops, a Belfast sink, a large AGA and an integrated electric oven and dish washer. Adjacent to the kitchen is a utility room.

A door from the kitchen leads into a double aspect study with another stone fireplace and a door to a second staircase to the first floor and beyond this is a cosy snug with wood burning stove.

The main staircase turns gently up to the part galleried first floor landing where there are five well-proportioned bedrooms all with feature fireplaces. The contemporary family bathroom has a white suite, double ended bath and double size shower and an adjacent wc. The master bedroom has an impressive vaulted ceiling with 'A' frame beams and views over the gardens.

From the landing are stairs up to a further two double bedrooms, one with ensuite wc.

OUTSIDE
Outside, to the rear of the house is a substantial level walled garden with several mature trees, shrubs and well-stocked flower borders. Beyond this to the north is the paddock of approximately 1.1 acres bordering the river Torridge and there are fine views across the river and countryside beyond.

From the main driveway and to the west of the paddock is a slipway to the river and there is also 1.5 miles of fishing rights along the riverbank.

On the western side of the house is a pretty
courtyard, still with the original cobbles. There are two large un-converted stone barns overlooking the courtyard offering scope for conversion, subject to planning permission. One is 57' x 16 and has already been partly converted. The other is 34' x 16 with two attached rooms of 13'9 x 11' and 13' x 7'.

NB. The owner has suggested that he could fully convert the barn opposite the main house for the buyer, subject to separate negotiations. There is a further stone barn ideal as a garage.

As previously mentioned, to the east of the gardens, is further river bordered level land that can be purchased if required subject to separate negotiations.

From Bideford Quay, take the A386 signposted Great Torrington and after approximately 1.7 miles, cross the bridge at Pillmouth over the river Yeo and the entrance drive leading to this property is immediately on the left. Follow the drive along and having driven under a small bridge, the property is on the left.
