The Property - This charming period farmhouse, listed Grade II, dates back to the 17th century, but has evolved over time with later additions to create a unique harmonious house. Originally part of the Manor of Sidmouth, generations of the Coles family lived at Bulverton Well Farm as farming tenants. In the early 1950's the farm was put up for sale when the Manor estate was dispersed. With rendered cob elevations under a pantile roof and a later brick extension, Bulverton Well Farmhouse has retained its traditional charm. The spacious kitchen with an Aga and double Belfast sink in the island, provides room for dining or relaxing by the wood burner. A wall of glass with a French window opens onto the terrace, creating a perfect opportunity for outdoor entertaining. The adjacent utility provides further storage, as well as a sink and secondary cooking. The dining room, featuring an inglenook with a bread oven and chamfered beams, opens into the light filled drawing room creating a more formal entertaining space, Upstairs the principal bedroom has an ensuite bathroom and generous wardrobes. There are four further double bedrooms, one of which has an en-suite shower room, and a family bathroom. Most of the principal rooms have lovely views over the gardens. The adjoining double storey brick barn with a stable door opening onto the courtyard, is ready to be adapted for a variety of uses, whether as additional accommodation or as a home office or studio (STPP).
