Attractive, versatile farm in the heart of Mid Devon
Perry Farm is superbly situated in an extremely peaceful location within the stunning, unspoilt mid Devon countryside. The farm lies just outside of the village of Cheriton Fitzpaine which boasts a vibrant village community and offers a good range of day to day amenities to include two pubs, a post office, leisure facilities, a local farm shop with a café. The village is well known for its historic buildings and is home to the longest thatched house in England which has recently been sympathetically converted into what now is a thriving Primary school. The market town of Crediton can be found just 4 miles south and provides a wider variety of everyday facilities including supermarkets, pubs, a well-regarded secondary school, a leisure centre and a monthly traditional farmers market. The Cathedral City of Exeter (12.2 miles) provides a full complement of cultural, commercial, educational and retail facilities.
Although the farm is located in the depth of the mid Devon countryside, there are good road links to both the M5 motorway and the A30 dual carriageway offering easy access to north Cornwall. The A361 north Devon link road is just 12 miles to the north providing access to Exmoor and the north Devon coastline (AONB), home to some of the country’s most scenic landscapes and beaches. Mainline railway stations can be found at both Tiverton and Exeter.
Perry Farm is a wonderful, diverse farm that comes to the open market for the first time in 50 years. The farm is centred around the 5 bedroom farmhouse offering comfortable family accommodation full of natural light, attractive traditional buildings, one of which has planning consent for holiday use with a further large range offering potential for development (stp) and thus potential for additional income. In addition there is a substantial 3 bedroom bungalow, separately accessed from the council road, set within a large garden and with a sheltered paddock adjoining.
There is a ring fence of highly productive land comprising a mix of level, gently sloping and sloping pasture together with pockets of woodland, high in amenity value. The land is accessible from the road and is divided into good sized enclosures, currently used for the grazing of livestock.
