    About this property

    • Thorverton is one of the area's most popular villages and lies midway between the market town of Tiverton with Blundell's School and the university and cathedral city of Exeter.

      Thorverton is an ancient village with a thriving community and an array of interesting cob, local stone and thatched buildings, the well-known Thorverton stone was quarried from the 12th Century onwards at nearby Raddon. This wonderful village has a church, two pubs, post office, local farm shop with cafe and the Berry Dairy General Store which is part of the sale. Tiverton, Crediton and Exeter are all within easy reach, offering a wide selection of shopping, leisure and schooling facilities. The village itself has an excellent primary school with a pre school, and Berry Dairy is also within the ‘local catchment' area of the Queen Elizabeth Academy at Crediton which is approximately 20 minutes' drive away. Exeter and Tiverton also offer a good selection of private schools, including Exeter School, Blundell's and The Maynard School.

      The surrounding area consists of typical, rolling Devon farmland with many excellent walks to be had around the network of public footpaths. There is good access to the M5 with junction 27 at Tiverton just 8 miles away and excellent rail links to London Paddington and Waterloo.

    Local information

    • Berry Dairy offers an exciting opportunity to purchase a home and thriving business in the centre of Thorverton. Historically, there has always been a Dairy on the site and the current Edwardian property was built in 1906 to replace a cob and thatch dairy which was lost in the great fire of Thorverton. The property has undergone an extensive renovation by the current owners and is now attractive and characterful, boasting many original features throughout alongside modern conveniences.
    • The house itself and general store is well proportioned, with over 2800 square feet of accommodation including the shop premises, storage area and a garage/workshop with potential to convert to an annexe, subject to planning. On the ground floor, the current owners have created a beautiful entrance hall which is perfect for welcoming guests with feature tiles and a striking staircase. There are two attractive reception rooms either side both enjoying a pretty bay window and pleasant outlook. As you would expect from Edwardian architecture, there are fine proportions alongside high ceilings and feature fireplaces including a woodburning stove in the dining room. The dining area has been cleverly designed to create a separate area whilst also enjoying an open plan feel with the rest of the ground floor – ideal for family life or entertaining.
    • A noteworthy addition to Berry Dairy is the new bespoke kitchen/breakfast room had been skillfully designed to make the most of the space with an extensive range of wall, base and draw units, fitted appliances, a central island with a built in breakfast table and French doors which lead out nicely onto the courtyard.
    • The charming staircase rises to the first floor where there is the principal bedroom, reconfigured to now enjoy an en suite shower room and built in wardrobe. There are a further two spacious double bedrooms, along with a study benefiting from wonderful views over the village, and a recently fitted and attractive family bathroom with roll top bath and separate shower.
    • The general store is believed to have traded for over 100 years since the late 19th Century until it closed in 2006, and was re-opened in June 2016. Since then trade and turnover has increased rapidly and there is already an established and strong demand from residents within the village as well as passing traffic and cyclists. Being located centrally and the only shop within the village, it benefits from plenty of passing trade. It is fitted with bespoke furniture made by a local craftsman and stocks a wide range of top quality, local produce. Based on trading figures to date it is likely that the income generating abilities of the business will continue to grow. Figures are available upon request.
    • Subject to necessary planning consents, the Dairy could easily be included within the house as an extra reception room/ annex or downstairs en suite bedroom.
    • Gardens and Grounds
    • To the rear of the property is a charming courtyard garden, with established shrub and raised flower borders. In the summer months the current owners have made use of the pretty courtyard and opened this area up for customers to enjoy. There is a door leading to the extensive workshop/garage which measures approximately 56ft and provides ample storage with vehicle and pedestrian access onto the road. There is also a gardeners cloakroom and rear access to the store/utility room. To the front of the property, there is off road parking for one vehicle currently with the opportunity for two.
