A tucked away country cottage situated at the head of a long driveway amongst 6.5 acres. Southerly facing with wonderful views over the grounds to Luppitt Common and the rolling hills.
The cottage itself has origins dating back several centuries and is principally of stone construction with a later rendered extension to the rear. It retains much of its character which is most prevalent in the sitting/dining room which has a heavily beamed ceiling, two inglenook fireplaces and window seats.
Snooks Farm would now benefit from a programme of modernisation/restoration and offers a fantastic opportunity for those looking to put their stamp on a property, or possibly even considerably alter it with the view to creating a larger residence (subject of course to any planning consents).
Gardens and Grounds.
The property is approached via a right of way over a long track/driveway, which leads to a parking area, adjacent to which is a good sized open modern building and an enclosed timber store. To the west of the house is a detached block built stable which comprises three stables and a tack room, and there is also a further detached garage/implement store.
The house itself is surrounded by gardens which are in the main lawned, and interspersed with some mature shrubs and there is also a greenhouse where there used to be a productive kitchen garden. To the west of the property is a small holding paddock (previously an orchard) and the majority of the land lies to the south, which has been divided into two main areas of paddock, one of which incorporates a copse where there are some magnificent old Oak trees. In total the gardens and grounds extend to just over 6.5 acres.
Snooks Farm is situated in a splendid country location on the outskirts of the small village of Luppitt, which in turn is located in the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village nestles amongst some of Devon's finest rolling countryside and the property itself adjoins Luppitt Common (Hartridge), a private landholding of some 200 acres and a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Luppitt has a pretty and ancient church and a village hall. Snooks Farm sits in a slightly elevated position, thus taking full advantage of beautiful country views and there is excellent access for walking and other country pursuits in the area.
The busy market town of Honiton is approximately 6 miles distant with a main line rail link to London (Waterloo). An express rail link (to Paddington) can also be found at Taunton, some 17 miles distant, where the M5 can also be joined. Exeter, the County Town, lies some 24 miles to the west with excellent shopping facilities, theatres, arts centre and international airport. The World Heritage Coastline, known as the Jurassic Coast, at Lyme Bay is approximately 12 miles distant.
From Honiton proceed east carrying straight on at the mini roundabout at the top of the high street on to Monkton Road. Proceed over the Honiton by-pass and take the left turning signposted Dunkeswell and Luppitt. Follow this road for approximately five miles (bearing right at Limers Cross) and then after a short while on a long straight, turn right signposted Luppitt. Proceed along this lane, towards the village for approximately 1 mile. Go past the church on your right, and then the village hall on your left, and take the next left hand turning. Follow this lane for half a mile where the driveway to Snooks Farm will be found on your right hand side.
