Blatchford Farm is a traditional Grade II Listed Devon Farmhouse, dating back to the 16th Century, with many of the original features remaining, including granite inglenook fireplaces and beams. The property has been in the same family ownership for over 80 years and is in need of updating; yet provides a great opportunity to create a five bedroom family house.
The accommodation on the ground floor comprises an entrance hall, a sitting room with a granite inglenook fireplace and wood burning stove, dining room, again with an inglenook fireplace and feature bread oven, a snug, kitchen, conservatory with double doors to the garden, utility room and a boot room with a WC and further access to the gardens. The accommodation hasn’t been updated for a number of years and can be rearranged to suit the purchaser’s needs.
Upstairs are four double bedrooms, a single bedroom and a family bathroom.
A traditional range of farm buildings surround the courtyard on the north east side of the plot. The barns have two stories and are of stone construction. They are believed to date from the 19th Century. Teignbridge District Council have granted permission to convert the barns into five individual dwellings, a one bedroom house and four three bedroom houses. The purchaser has the opportunity to develop the properties for letting or to sell individually. The planning number is 14/02317/COU and details can be found on the planning section of the council’s website or obtained from the vendor’s agent.
Blatchford Farmhouse is approached off the road onto a driveway to a large courtyard, surrounded by the house and barns. The gardens at the farmhouse are south facing and are largely laid to lawn with a paved terrace, a gentle slope, ornamental planting and a thatched arbour. A further parking area for several cars is found along the driveway.
A level parcel of land, approximately 2.90 acres, lies alongside the driveway and is bordered by the river and fencing.
