Situation

Winson Farm is situated in a rural position close to the popular village of Chittlehampton. The village has a fine church, primary school, Post Office/general stores and popular public house, The Bell Inn. The market town of South Molton is five miles to the east and is able to meet most everyday requirements with a health centre, bank, Post Office, a good range of shops, Sainsbury's supermarket, garages, restaurants and pubs. A wider range of facilities is available in the regional centre of Barnstaple, about 10 miles to the north-west. Both the renowned North Devon coastline and Exmoor National Park are within easy reach by car.

Description

Winson Farm is centred around a large period farmhouse (Grade II listed) that offers scope for modernisation and improvement. The house is currently arranged to provide dual-family occupation with a kitchen and reception rooms at either end of the house divided by a central hallway but could easily be used as one large dwelling if required.

The house forms part of a large farmstead of traditional and modern buildings which are adaptable to a wide variety of uses and have been used recently to provide extensive stabling. The buildings also offer much scope and potential for residential conversion (subject to obtaining the necessary permission).

The farmstead lies centrally within a ring fence of level or gently sloping pasture extending in all to 34.23 acres.
