One of Devon’s oldest houses on the market on a beautiful residential farm which offers an impressive 700 year old Long house with two semi-detached cottages, a lodge and outbuildings for further development opportunities.

For many years Wood Barton has been a family home and farm. It is centred on the Grade I Listed Long house which dates from early to mid-14th century, there is a record of a dwelling on the site at the time of the Domesday survey.

The house, along with its many buildings, stands in beautiful park-like grounds with many mature specimen trees and flowering shrubs. Beyond the immediate grounds it is surrounded and protected by its own productive grasslands which extend down to a brook that forms a tributary of the River Culm.

The opportunity is there for a new owner to move in and continue using the property as it has been over many years, however there is much potential for creative changes around its traditional buildings and particularly the redundant agricultural buildings.

MAIN HOUSE
The principal accommodation runs across the house with a southerly outlook to the gardens. Its character testifies to its long history, in the large open fireplaces and the massive structural roof timbers and blackened beams. A wing projecting forward accommodates what could be an annexe but currently serves as a garden room and guest bedroom above. The service rooms run behind the house, with a kitchen with Aga at the west end overlooking a small protected courtyard.

GARDENS and GROUNDS
The gardens and grounds surround the house and contain many fine specimen trees and shrubs including magnolias, two davidia, azaleas, camellias, rhododendrons and acers, as well as several ponds and water features. Much was planted in the early 1930's, they have been developed and tended by the vendor's family over the last 40 years and have been part of the NGS scheme. Spring bulbs carpet the ground and delightful paths meander through the grounds, opening up vistas of the surrounding countryside. Immediately in front of the house there is a lawn with adjacent borders, paved terrace along the south side of the house and central sculpture area. Next to the lawn, screened by a beech hedge, is a vegetable garden with raised beds, fruit cage and pathways, and the hard tennis court screened by a further beech hedge.

ROSE COTTAGE and HONEYSUCKLE COTTAGE
A pair of attractive cottages nicely positioned on the private driveway away from the main house. They both have pretty front and rear gardens and driveway parking. Perfect for letting or for additional accommodation supporting the main house.

THE GATE HOUSE
The gate house is situated to the rear of the kitchen gardens by the drive. It has its own parking area away from the house. It provides entrance lobby/store, large living room/kitchen, bedroom and a spacious shower room.

BUILDINGS
The house is adjoined by a service courtyard of former farm buildings that have been partially brought into domestic use and offer potential for further conversion into additional ancillary or holiday accommodation, subject to planning consent.

Beyond the courtyard there is an array of traditional and modern redundant farm buildings, including a very impressive large granary barn constructed of stone and brick. There is also a brick shippen, extensive Dutch barn, former livestock building, covered silage pit and machinery store.

DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITIES
Because of the superb position of the farm, this is a very desirable location for further residential development. The buildings on the farm show potential for conversion under full planning and/or permitted development, perhaps also with scope for other planning gain which might include a new build opportunity. Clearly there is healthy potential, however this would be subject to obtaining the necessary consents.

THE LAND - Approximately 40 Acres
(Acreage quoted is an approximate guide and subject to be measured and subject to availability)

Surrounding the property, affording great privacy to the house and with some breath-taking views is an attractive run of seven pasture fields and paddocks. The land is very gently sloping and interspersed with some woodland pockets including planting in recent years. The land creates a haven for wildlife not least the superb pond in the north west corner in a beautiful setting surrounded by a copse.

RIGHTS OF WAY
The first section of driveway also gives access to the adjoining properties.
