6 Bedroom Farm House Sold STC

A gloriously situated residential farm, enjoying a private, tranquil position at the end of a long farm drive on the Devon/ Dorset border. Charming 6 bedroom period house with sympathetic modern extensions set in mature gardens with orchards and ponds. Flexible outbuildings, Surrounded by pretty pastureland. In all 13.89 acres (5.62 ha).

This charming early Victorian farmhouse is largely constructed of local stone under a slate roof. Whilst the original dwelling remains, the property has been re-modelled over time and recently extended in collaboration with David Highet, a well-known architect. Today Roughmoor Farm blends together very sympathetically the period dwelling with a spacious and light filled contemporary extension that connects to the surrounding landscape through its many windows and glazed doors. The resulting home combines original features such as a period fireplace, exposed beams and window seats, together with a focus on sustainability. A ground source heat pump provides hot water and underfloor heating in the extension, whilst there are Photovoltaic and solar thermal roof panels, as well as a 10Kw battery storage system and an EV charging point. At the heart of the home is the spacious kitchen with room for dining and relaxing, which opens onto a stone terrace. The modern extension offers a more contemporary feel, featuring wooden floors with underfloor heating, wood burners and high ceilings. The full height music room with a mezzanine has floor to ceiling windows on two sides and french doors giving access to the gardens. The adjoining drawing room has a vaulted ceiling and a staircase accessing the lower ground floor accommodation. The two bedrooms with bathroom and kitchenette have an independent entrance and could provide opportunities for a rental unit or multi-generational occupation. Most of the rooms have bucolic views over the gardens to the countryside beyond.

Roughmoor Farm is nestled in a hidden valley, tucked away at the end of a long track, creating a true retreat from the bustle of modern life. With no immediate neighbours, this tranquil farmstead is surrounded by the unspoilt Devon countryside on the edge of the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Close by is the pretty village of Hawkchurch with an inn, recently expanded community shop, primary school and 12th century church. The bustling market town of Axminster offers all the amenities one would expect, with a choice of supermarkets, medical centre, sports centre, swimming pool and mainline train station. Alternatively the popular Dorset town of Bridport with independents shops, Waitrose and annual literary festival is within easy reach. The Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site and popular resort of Lyme Regis with its famous Cobb and sandy beach, provides a range of independent shops and restaurants, as well as offering excellent opportunities for walking, fishing and swimming. The property is readily accessible by both road and rail, with access to the A30/A303 and the A35 coast road. The Cathedral city of Exeter (with its regional airport and access to the M5) shopping, sporting and cultural facilities, is an easy commute.
