An impressive Grade II listed Georgian style farmhouse with superb moor views. Secondary accommodation, further apartment and a range of outbuildings, all set within about 16.5 acres.
North Wheddon Farm dates back to the 1840's and has since been greatly enhanced by the current owners to create a comfortable family home, retaining many period features. It is also a superb business opportunity with a detached three bed dwelling and a further two bed apartment.
The main house offers extensive accommodation arranged over three floors. The house is south-facing with a pleasant outlook over the garden and to the west enjoys stunning countryside views. In addition to the main house, Farthingwood Barn and the Eden Lodge provide ancillary accommodation for staff or guests, or the opportunity to generate an income through holiday lets, which is how the current owners have them arranged.
On the ground floor, there is a superb sociable kitchen/breakfast room with stone flooring, modern shaker style units, breakfast bar, triple Aga and further gas range style cooker, clearly this room is the hub of the home with doors out onto the terrace. The rear hallway leads through the property to the dining room with impressive open fire, a further reception room and then into the double aspect sitting room, again with a fantastic open fire and views out over the garden. Further accommodation on the ground floor includes a useful boot room, boiler room and WC.
On the first floor there are four bedrooms with three benefiting from en suites and a further two bathrooms. Stairs lead up to the second floor where there are two additional bedrooms with a bathroom in-between.
Farthingwood Barn, the detached annex has superb views through the valley and its own private outside space. Inside there is a generous kitchen breakfast room, light and spacious sitting room with wood burning stove, two bedrooms (master with an en suite) and a bathroom.
The Eden lodge has its own entrance and is set in the eaves of the main house. There is an open plan kitchen/dining/living room, two bedrooms and a shower room.
The Gardens and Grounds
Outside is a delight, the formal gardens are south facing and offer a great deal of privacy. There are some fantastic views down through the valley and beyond. The garden itself is mostly laid to lawn and bordered by a range of mature trees and shrubs. There is a sun terrace directly outside the rear of the property, perfect for alfresco dining.
As the driveway leads down to North Wheddon Farm there is a generous yard area providing ample parking. Here, there is a good range of outbuildings including stables, workshops and a log store. The land, which is around 16.5 acres in total is to the west and enjoys some stunning views over Exmoor and is easily accessible from the house.
