The Property.
Northcott Farm is a handsome and substantial Victorian country house which has greatly evolved and been enlarged over the years, creating the very spacious and imposing home we find today. The property is of traditional construction with rendered and colourwashed exterior elevations under a slated roof and sits around the former farmyard over which many of the rooms have access through French doors.

It has well-proportioned accommodation which extends to over 3500 square feet and is also very well planned and in beautiful order. Great care and attention has been given to the fixtures and fittings, and although it retains a period ambience, it has all the modern conveniences one would expect and is decorated in a modern and neutral fashion.

A more recent addition is the stunning contemporary kitchen/family room which has been immaculately fitted with extensive units and integral appliances, granite work surfaces, large central island and 4-oven Aga. It also has beautiful porcelain tiles and bi-fold doors into the gardens. Northcott Farmhouse benefits from 3 large reception rooms and the drawing room is worthy of note with it being an airy vaulted room with inglenook fireplace and woodburner.

Northcott Farm is situated in a beautiful country location in the tiny hamlet of Northcott, which in turn is situated between the villages of Culmstock and Ashill. The property has access to some of the county's most attractive rolling countryside and beautiful walks and rides emanate from ones doorstep. Although semi-rural, this location is also very accessible with the larger village of Uffculme only a short distance away, as well as the towns of Honiton and Cullompton and the M5 motorway. This area forms part of the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which ranges over the Devon/Somerset borders. Ashill serves a small rural community and has the pretty Parish church of St Stephens and popular Public House The Ashill Inn. Culmstock also has an ancient Parish Church and a Primary School. The larger village of Uffculme is about 2.5 miles away, and this has a good range of amenities which include several shops and a Post Office/Village Store, Public House, Library and two schools, the secondary of which is rated outstanding by Ofsted.

Taunton the County Town of Somerset, is about 14 miles distant and has an excellent range of shopping and recreational amenities, as well as having a main line rail link to London Paddington, or alternatively about 5 miles away trains can be picked up from Tiverton Parkway. The Cathedral City of Exeter is about 22 miles to the south west and offers a comprehensive range of amenities including a large modern shopping centre, theatres and international airport.

Gardens and Grounds.
The property is approached from the country lane through double timber gates which lead to a further 5 bar gate opening into the former farmyard. This is now gravelled and is particularly attractive with its range of outbuildings and the front façade of the property itself. The outbuildings currently comprise a useful office, large garaging/implement store which has 3 sets of double timber doors as well as the former threshing barn which is an enormous sound building and which is currently used for storage. This range of buildings and especially the former threshing barn, has a huge variety of potential uses, and we understand that there was previously approved planning for a holiday cottage. It would also be perfect for those in need of a large studio or hobbies room, or for those requiring a home office.

The gardens surround the property and are, in the main, laid to lawns which are interspersed with a variety of fruit trees and rhododenrons. There is also a kitchen garden area with greenhouse. The gardens extend to a paddock to the south and there is also a large paddock to the west which can be accessed from the gardens through high gates, and also has access via a right of way over a track.
