James Baker of Strutt & Parker’s Exeter office is set to test the resilience of the lifestyle market with the launch of three attractive Devon farms.
Despite rumblings about City bonus cutbacks and banks tightening up their lending criteria, Mr Baker said there was still plenty of demand. “People are coming down here with hefty bank balances looking for their dream.”
Marsh Farm at Cheriton Fitzpaine, near Crediton, is an 86-acre former dairy unit with a six-bed Grade II listed house priced at £1.35m.
Coxland Farm at Cheriton Bishop, near Exeter, could appeal to somebody looking for diversified income. Previously home to a herd of water buffalo, a number of paddocks are now fenced for deer and there is consent to convert a traditional building into three holiday cottages. A six bed, Grade II listed house and 54 acres are included in the £1.35m guide.
Clannaborough Farm at Throwleigh, near Okehampton, comes with 83 acres, a thatched five-bedroom Devon longhouse and a range of granite buildings. The guide is £1.5m.
