51 Acre Farm in East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

Overlooking the Umborne Valley, 2 miles from Colyton lies Lower Watchcombe Farm.  The welcoming 4-bedroom farmhouse retains many original Victorian features, with high ceilings, tiled floors and open fireplaces.  A former cart shed has been sympathetically integrated into the house, providing a stunning double height kitchen/breakfast room with mezzanine above, flooded with light from its gable end window.  

A stable block, modern agricultural building and fodder barn serve the ring-fenced land, extending to 51.49 acres with a hard track giving access to all fields.  The land abounds with wild daffodils in season, and slopes gently to the Umborne Brook, a tributary of the River Axe, attractive a range of wildlife from sea trout to otters. Fishing rights are included within the sale.

The small town of Colyton is just 2 miles away offering everyday facilities, while Axminster offers a leisure centre, supermarkets and a mainline train station.  The A30/A303 and Exeter (with its airport) are within a short drive.  The surrounding East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Jurassic Coast offer excellent walking and riding. 

This gem of a Devon farm is on the market through Symonds & Sampson in Axminster with a Guide Price of £850,000.  Contact Ross Willmington on 01297 33122 for further information
