This attractive house currently offers well-appointed family accommodation laid out over three floors with high ceilings, an abundance of natural light and a wealth of period features. The generous proportions and layout of the house provides potential to divide the house into two or more dwellings (stp).

    The Old Farm Yard & Buildings
    The old farmyard lies between the farmhouse and the road and comprises an attractive range of traditional buildings generally of stone built and cob or block construction together with three useful portal frame buildings surrounded by concrete and hardcore yards, a paddock and large pond. Currently Mid Devon District Council has granted detailed planning permission (application number 20/00273/MFUL) for the conversion of the traditional barns to 5 dwellings and the erection of 9 new build dwellings with associated works including access improvements and landscaping. The existing planning consent allows for the demolition of many of the less historically signicant buildings and those of poorer quality.

    The buildings to be converted include the stone and cob built former granary to2 x four bedroom houses (plots 10 & 11 on plan) and a traditional range of stone and block construction surrounding a courtyard to 2 x four bedroom & 1 x three bedroom dwelling (plots 12, 13 & 14 on plan). The 9 new builds are allocated on the north-eastern and north- western edges of the site and comprise 5 x four bedroom detached two storey dwellings and 4 x 3 three bedroom semi-detached two storey dwellings (1st home restriction). Each dwelling will have 2 private car parking spaces and some will have the benefit of carports. A Section 106 Agreement outlines the designated contributions to Public Open Space, 4no, First Homes and the School Transport Contribution. Full details of the planning permission and Section 106 agreement can be found by following this link to Mid Devon District Council https://planning.middevon.gov.uk/online-applications/ & using ref no 20/00273/MFUL We understand that Mid Devon District Council chose to withdraw the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) examination within Mid Devon on 20th January 2021; therefore it is our understanding that CIL will not be payable. The entirety of Lot 1 falls within the defined settlement boundary of the village thereby offering further future potential (STP). The farmhouse and farmyard together affords potential opportunities for a host of alternative uses (stp) either as a stand-alone development/enterprise or combined with/supplementary to the farmshop and restaurant (lot 3).
