An outstanding ring fenced agricultural holding centred upon a detached dwelling (subject to an AOC), a range of farm buildings and 67 acres of pasture and arable land. EPC = D

Highlands Farm comes to the market following the vendor's recent decision to retire from farming. This sale thereby affords prospective purchasers the extremely rare opportunity to acquire a most adaptable agricultural holding occupying an outstanding position within rural East Devon.

The property is centered upon a detached dwelling which was designed by the current vendors and built in the mid 1990's and affords underfloor heating, a large farmhouse style kitchen / dining room with oil fired Rayburn, lounge with wood burning stove, utility, three double bedrooms, one with en suite, family bathroom and two further bedrooms on the first floor.

The excellent combination of modern style farm buildings and versatile level land provide an excellent setting to the house and buildings. Highlands Farm extends in total to about 67.57 Acres (27.34 Ha) and is offered for sale as a whole.

Highlands Farm occupies an enviable position at the end of a private driveway. The property lies on the western edge of the Blackdown Hills, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a predominantly agricultural landscape primarily comprising pasture and arable land interspersed with an abundance of woodland and widely regarded as some of the most attractive countryside in the county.

Whilst the setting is undoubtedly rural the property is by no means isolated with good communication links to the surrounding districts and further afield. Honiton (7 miles) provides an excellent range of commercial educational and recreational facilities as well as providing access to the A30/A303 (T) and with main rail connections to London Waterloo. Access to the M5 motorway is available at Cullompton (J28) from where the larger centres of Exeter, Taunton and Bristol are all within easy reach. Taunton lies approximately 17 miles to the north and affords a range of facilities befitting those of a county town and major regional centre.

Gardens lie to the south and west of the dwelling and mainly comprise lawns being bounded by a post and rail fence and with views over the adjoining land. To the front of the dwelling is a parking area and open fronted implement shed. Situated to the west of the dwelling is the versatile range of farm buildings which have been utilised for livestock, machinery and fodder storage.
