Will you be looking to call Devon your home?
Hazels Farm nestles in an elevated but sheltered position. The property is set at the end of a long driveway, sits well within its own land and has no immediate neighbours.
There is 47.54 acres of land in total. Contained within a ring fence surrounding the farmstead is a block of pretty pastureland served by several useful field shelters. The land is well fenced and is also gently sloping. We can imagine a cross-country course looking particularly at home within the land, subject to planning.
There are areas of native woodland and a large wildlife pond with an island fed by a stream.
There are several outbuildings situated in the yard, including a block of eight stables, a hay barn, a general purpose barn, an open-fronted timber frame and former block-built cow stalls with a former dairy.
Beyond the wildlife pond, in a discrete location by the farm track, is the traditional open-fronted stone linhay, which offers an opportunity for conversion, subject to planning.
The range of outbuildings offer the purchaser a variety of options for multiple occupancy or to provide an income.
Outside you will also find a 20x40m outdoor school which is well fenced and has a surface.
The home is a five-bedroom farmhouse which has rendered elevations under a tiled roof and offers spacious accommodation.
The oldest part of the property dates back to the 17th Century, with later additions to the front.
