A distinctive period farmhouse of great character with annexe, set on the outskirts of this East Devon village.
The Old Farmhouse as its name suggests, has origins dating back to the late 18th century and exudes much period character and ambience. The property is principally constructed of local flintstone and mellow handmade brick under a slated roof with Georgian style small pane glazed windows. Over recent years the property has been modernised and now offers typical spacious farmhouse style accommodation with many character features such as inglenook fireplaces, flagstone floors, exposed beams etc., and has generous accommodation that is greatly enhanced
with the East Wing Annexe.
This annexe can be simply incorporated into the principal
accommodation by leaving a door or two open or alternatively could be used separately as it has been recently, thus making the property ideal for
two families, home with an income, or extended family.
The Old Farmhouse certainly merits personal inspection by anyone seeking a large period farmhouse of character with adaptable accommodation.
The Old Farmhouse is situated in a convenient location in Maidenhayne Lane, just off the A358 on the outskirts of the village of Musbury and enjoys a sunny south facing aspect. Being on the edge of the village rural walks emanate virtually from your doorstep, yet the village itself is also
close at hand. Musbury is situated in the Axe Valley between the market town of Axminster and the small harbour village of Axmouth, which is located on the World Heritage Coastline colloquially known as The Jurassic Coast. Musbury has a pretty Parish Church (St Michael), a
Primary School, garage with supermarket and a Public House.
Axminster is a busy market town with a range of shops including the River Cottage Store and Canteen which is owned by the broadcaster and journalist Hugh Fearnley-Whittingshall and a main line rail link to London (Waterloo). The renowned Grammar School at Colyton, one of
England's top mixed state schools is approximately 2.5 miles away. Honiton is some 9.5 miles distant with a twice weekly market, a range oshops many of which sell antiques and main line rail link to London (Waterloo). Exeter, the County Town, is about 25 miles to the west with a comprehensive range of facilities including shops, theatre, main line rail
link to London (Waterloo), M5 access and small international airport.
The property is approached from the lane to a roomy courtyard parking area to the west side of the property where there is space for a number of vehicles.
Note: The barns to the rear do have pedestrian access through this courtyard but the parking is exclusive to The Old Farmhouse.
To the front of the property is a small area of south facing garden retained by a low stone wall with a pedestrian gate to the lane. There are gravelled footpaths and shrub and plant borders. To the rear is a partly covered courtyard where there is useful store and other storage facilities,
a door leads to the side where there is a gravelled area covered by a pergola and steps which lead up to a large decked area, which in turn leads to a small area of lawn and a further triangular area of lawn fenced to the east.
