Shircombe Farm is a wonderful residential farm presenting a most splendid setting to quietly enjoy the beautiful Exmoor countryside.
The former dairy farm offers a number of opportunities for an ingoing buyer; the large period farmhouse is in good condition having been extensively refurbished about 6 years ago. There are many traditional stone buildings and a substantial range of modern portal frame buildings offering potential for a number of different uses.
The land wraps around the house and buildings offering protection and privacy, benefitting from no public rights of way.
Dramatic views extend from the farmstead and higher ground to the peaks of Exmoor and surrounding countryside.
Constructed in circa 1840 this beautiful 5-bedroom Exmoor farmhouse was restored by the previous owner to offer terrific family accommodation across two floors, with extensive countryside views, plus sunny terrace and garden.
There are two excellent reception rooms, each with a log burning stove, plus a modern kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, study & store.
On the first floor there are five characterful double bedrooms, three with en-suite shower rooms, plus a stylish family bathroom.
Behind the house and to the east lie large lawns and a spring fed pond. The farmhouse also has an attached triple garage.
East Barn is a detached 3 bedroom barn conversion at the front of the courtyard. It has been sensitively restored following a planning consent granted in 2014, for use as a holiday cottage.
Located west from the Farmhouse and East Barn lies a range of traditional stone buildings currently used for storage and offering significant potential for alternative uses subject to the necessary consents.
Modern Farm Buildings
There are a range of portal frame sheds which were erected organically over the years to accommodate the expanding dairy herd. More recently the buildings have been used to house the vendors beef cattle and as machinery, straw and general purpose stores. These offer excellent re-purposing potential for a variety of uses to suit the incoming buyer.
In total there are 185 acres of pasture and 23 acres of woodland.
The higher ground which generally lies to the north, south and east of the house, is productive pasture ground with recent fencing, numerous access points and water. A steep sided valley dominates the west of the farm, providing a stunning outlook and plenty of sporting, amenity and conservation opportunities.
The farm lies in west Somerset within Exmoor National Park, close to the villages of Brompton Regis (1 mile) and Dulverton (4.5 miles).
The farm sits away from the A396 (the Tiverton to Dunster road) down a quiet country lane; a discreet gateway leads to a long private driveway of almost 500 metres before reaching the house and buildings at the centre of the farm.
Dulverton is a pretty market town situated on the banks of the River Barle popular with many visiting Exmoor. The town holds a range of day to day amenities including a number of boutique shops, cafés and restaurants. Larger supermarkets and facilities are available from Tiverton or Taunton.
Those accessing the area by train regularly use connections at Tiverton Parkway station (22 miles) which provides regular services to London Paddington in 2 hours. At the same location lies junction 27 of the M5 offering road access west into Devon and Cornwall and north east towards Bristol
