A RESERVATION AGREEMENT IS AVAILABLE WITH THIS PROPERTY TO PROVIDE SECURITY ONCE YOUR OFFER HAS BEEN ACCEPTED. PLEASE ASK US FOR MORE INFORMATION.
Located in the rolling Devon countryside just to the north of Dartmoor, North Town Farm is believed to date back as early as the 16th Century and may have housed early workers for the nearby village church, and character features showcasing the home’s history can be found throughout both the farmhouse and adjacent cottage.
Offering an exceptional lifestyle opportunity to lucky new owners, this postcard-perfect property set in beautiful formal gardens combines a farmhouse including spectacular beamed double-height shippon with a detached thatched cottage, currently run as a successful holiday let. The cottage could equally offer the potential for dual occupation or space for visiting friends and family. The Farmhouse and Cottage have the potential to be connected via glass enclosure to create a single linked dwelling, subject to the necessary consents.
The adjacent paddock and modern agricultural building suitable for stabling permit equestrian use or could equally suit smallholding purposes. Further stone outbuildings around the courtyard provide workshop space and garaging, perfect for hobbies and storage.

LOCATION
Sampford Courtenay has a vibrant and active community in addition to beautiful traditional architecture and a popular 17th century inn which is within walking distance. The village is approximately 6 miles from the town of Okehampton which offers a great range of independent shops and cafes, a fantastic public park with direct access to Dartmoor, primary and secondary schooling and convenient road and rail links to Exeter and on to London.

Accommodation
The farmhouse has generous space for entertaining, including a large lounge with inglenook fireplace, and the former shippon, which is now a grand second reception room with double height vaulted ceilings and oversized french doors leading to the rear patio. Also on the ground floor of the farmhouse is a beautiful and bright modern kitchen, a large utility, and a shower room. The charm continues on the first floor where you will find two spacious double bedrooms with lovely views of the extensive gardens, along with a recently fitted shower room.

Similar to the farmhouse, the charming detached cottage is beautifully decorated and fitted with high-end finishes throughout. On the ground floor is a large open plan kitchen / diner / lounge with stone fireplace and exposed beams. To the first floor are bright double and single bedrooms overlooking the courtyard along with a shower room.

Outside
North Town Farm and Cottage are set in beautiful and extensive gardens, comprising areas of lawn, flower and shrub borders, and paved patio areas for outdoor dining. An attractive stream, a tributary to the River Taw, runs through the garden and a timber bridge leads over the stream to the adjacent mature orchard which contains a variety of fruit trees. A seating area next to the stream provides a peaceful area for reflection and relaxation.
Ample parking is present at the property, both in the three-bay carport as well as within the central courtyard and upper barnyard. Attached to the carport is the former dairy which is currently used for storage. Adjoining the cottage is a generously-sized workshop - this could be used as a home office, as a hobby space, or potentially converted to additional accommodation, subject to the necessary consents.
The property has an electric gated entrance and a modern security system is in place with cameras and floodlights surrounding the property and covering the main entrance. The gardens are securely fenced on all sides, so are dog and child-friendly.
A modern concrete-floored barn suitable for animals or stabling sits beyond the gardens. This has doors to two sides and is power, light and water connected.
