A wonderful small farm in a magnificent position in the heart of the Exmoor National Park
Litton Farm sits at the head of a long gravel drive in a secluded and peaceful south-facing position. The main dwelling is rendered, with a tiled roof and sits in a truly stunning setting, surrounded by its own land and with far-reaching views of the Exmoor National Park. The property has very well laid out accommodation, but also offers the potential to develop into the adjacent cart shed, subject to the appropriate planning permissions. Everyday life focuses on the large double aspect kitchen at the eastern end of the property. The current owners developed this area to create a charming cooking/eating and seating area that forms the heart of the house. Adjacent to the kitchen is a well-proportioned dining room with a slate floor with doors leading directly to the south facing sun room. There is a warm sitting room, with a large wood burner set in an enclosed stone fireplace forming a lovely feature. At the western end of the large entrance hall that runs to the rear of Litton Farmhouse is a porch conservatory entrance that leads through to a covered patio area that is attached to the stone cart shed. A well-equipped utility room, adjacent to the back door, completes the ground floor accommodation. Upstairs, there are four double bedrooms, two of which have en-suite bathrooms and there is a further family shower room.
Gardens and Outbuildings
The gardens lie predominantly to the south of the main house and there is a large raised decking area that runs the length of the main house on the south side. To the west of the garden is a large stone cart shed that could be incorporated into the main accommodation, subject to the appropriate planning permissions. To the rear of the cart shed is a workshop and a substantial dog kennel. Attached to the southern end of the cart shed is a further mono pitched building.
The predominantly permanent pasture land is organic and within a mid-tier country stewardship scheme. The pasture land is split by hedgerows and stock fencing into good sized grazing paddocks. The grassland is grazed under a licence from March to October each year. The 58 acres comprises of:
Pasture land: 54.5 Acres
