Higher Clovelly, Bideford, Devon
SMALLHOLDING OR EQUESTRIAN PROPERTY?
A substantial 6 bedroom detached farmhouse with no close neighbours, 2 attractive holiday letting cottages and an extensive selection of both traditional and modern farm buildings with scope for further conversion or a wide range of uses, with 5.
Trew farm would be perfect for anyone looking for a truly secluded home offering scope for a wide range of uses including equestrian, as a smallholding, for running a business or just as a large private family home and there is even a landing strip for a light aircraft close-by. There are already two attractive holiday letting cottages adjacent to the main house and there is plenty of scope to convert other stone barns into further accommodation if desired. (Planning for conversion to residential dwellings has lapsed on 2 of the empty stone barns).
Despite the main house requiring some updating and modernisation, it does have a recently replaced natural slate elevation to the roof and the location would justify the expense, as properties in such private settings are rarely available and there are magnificent far-reaching views over open the surrounding countryside as far as Dartmoor on a clear day.
The property is just under 3 miles from the popular village of Woolsery, which provides a more comprehensive range of facilities than most other villages in North Devon, with the popular Inn having been recently beautifully refurbished, now providing a superb and very popular restaurant. The old manor house is currently undergoing similar refurbishment to become a boutique hotel. There is also an excellent primary school, a shop/post office open 7 days a week, a fish and chip shop, a small garage, a modern village sports and community hall with a wide range of sports and social facilities, a parish church and 3 miles away on the A39, the Atlantic Academy secondary school.
Approached down a long drive passing open fields, you arrive at the property to a large yard with the house and cottages on the south side and the majority of the barns to the north and east.
The main house is accessed from the yard to a utility/boot room containing the oil fired central heating boiler and then into a sizeable kitchen with adjacent room ideal as a breakfast room. A wide hallway runs through the middle of the house and provides access to three more large reception rooms, one having an attractive stone fireplace and ceiling beams. There is also a bathroom, with airing cupboard and a pantry. Doors at the end of the hall open to the garden.
Stairs lead to a wide first floor landing and there are 6 well-proportioned bedrooms and a bathroom. It would be possible to reconfigure upstairs to create ensuite facilities if desired and the sizeable loft space also offers potential. From the landing, is a door to a small room with steps outside leading to the side of the house.
Jessies cottage is an attractive and well-presented three bedroom two bathroom stone built holiday letting cottage with it's own private garden, modern kitchen and bathrooms and splendid views which is ready to provide income straight away.
Wills Barn is a spacious one bedroom stone built holiday cottage, also ready to let out, with vaulted ceilings and exposed A frame beams, a modern open plan kitchen and shower room.
At the rear of the main house is a 70' x 70' level lawned garden with patio, established boundaries and superb far-reaching views.
To the south of the house is the 3 acre paddock and there is the possibility of up to a further 18 acres being available subject to separate negotiations in 2 adjacent fields.
Further to the empty stone barns previously mentioned, there is an array of more modern and impressively large metal clad barns, formerly used for dairy farming, including feeding sheds, hay storage, machine and vehicle storage etc.
