Property Description

Tenure: Freehold

A truly stunning and versatile five bedroomed Grade II Listed former farmhouse incorporating a two bedroomed annexe with an adaptable range of outbuildings and adjoining land, set within an idyllic small traditional rural hamlet just 4.5 miles from South Molton. In all, the property extends to about 27.48 Acres.


Flitton Barton is centred upon a spacious detached former farmhouse providing well-appointed and versatile five double bedroomed family accommodation, which has been the subject of a substantial yet sympathetic refurbishment programme in recent years to a high standard, whilst exhibiting a wealth of character features. Offered as a whole, or with less land, it is thought that Flitton Barton may suit a wide variety of purchasers as well as those seeking a dual occupancy or letting income potential.
The property occupies a delightful elevated south facing position enjoying attractive views over the unspoilt surrounding countryside with superb and immaculately presented gardens and grounds. The property benefits from two large modern buildings and a traditional barn which may have potential for conversion (subject to any appropriate planning consents), together with the adjoining gently sloping pasture land, extending to about 27.48 acres. The property may be available with less land, if required and subject to negotiation.
The spacious accommodation which is in excellent decorative order, comprises an entrance hall with shower room off and useful utility room with loft over. The entrance hall leads to the well-appointed farmhouse kitchen with built in cooker, hob and dish washer together with a superb inglenook style fireplace inset with Redfyre oil fired range cooker. We believe behind this inglenook fireplace is an original smoke room and hence the void shown on the floorplan. Dining room with a further inglenook style fireplace inset with a Stovax wood burning stove and door to the sitting room also containing a large former fireplace recess and former door to adjoining annexe (currently discussed). A rear hall allows access to outside rear with stairs to first floor and leads to an original Dairy with slate cold shelves.
On the first floor is a spacious landing area with door to annexe and useful walk-in airing cupboard. Three lovely well proportioned double bedrooms lead off the landing all enjoying views (master with en-suite shower room) and a separate large family bathroom.
The annexe provides and entrance porch, rear hall with cloakroom off, open plan double aspect kitchen/sitting room with built in appliances. On the first floor are two double bedrooms and a shower room with door connecting to the first floor of the main accommodation.
The accommodation benefits from oil fired central heating with replacement timber casement double glazed units to all window opening except the entrance porch.
For approximate room dimensions and layout please refer to the enclosed floorplan.
