An attractive residential farm with outbuildings, river frontage, fishing rights, and fabulous views.
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.
