Brief Description

Main Description

Alfington Farm is situated on the edge of this desirable village surrounded by glorious East Devon countryside. This attractive Georgian farmhouse benefits from being within a few minutes' drive of the A30 dual carriageway giving swift access to the north and south including the Cathedral City of Exeter, the M5 and the coast. The surrounding countryside offers excellent walking facilities and the market towns of Ottery St Mary and Honiton are also within easy reach. The property also benefits from being within the Kings School catchment area.

This is a superb opportunity to create a substantial family home with numerous outbuildings lending for possible conversion into additional dwellings or commercial premises (subject to the necessary planning permissions/consents). There is an additional eleven acres divided into three individual fields.

The property itself would benefit from refurbishment yet the character and grandiose period features are still evident creating a lovely light and spacious feel.

The sitting room enjoys pleasant country views with an open fireplace and feature arched display recesses which continue through to the drawing room being another large spacious room. There is a cosy dining room with multi-fuel/wood burning stove and a good sized office. The kitchen/breakfast room is the heart of the home with inglenook fireplace with inset Rayburn cooker and plenty of room for a dining table and chairs. There are numerous oak effect fronted cupboards and drawers and plenty of work surfaces. A large utility/scullery concludes the ground floor and there is a large cellar for additional storage.

On the first floor are seven double bedrooms, the master with a dressing room/bedroom eight and the second bedroom has access to a large storage room which would lend itself for conversion into an additional bedroom if required. A large landing has been partially divided to create a tenth bedroom if this partition was completed. (Currently seven bedrooms, potential ten) There are also two spacious bathrooms and a secondary staircase.

The farm is approached via a five bar timber gate onto a substantial concrete driveway providing off road parking for several vehicles and room for boats, caravan etc.

There are substantial barns and outbuildings, some measuring 50' x 70' creating redevelopment or commercial premises potential subject to the necessary planning permissions/consents.
