A superb and ancient 4 bedroom farmhouse located in a country position with glorious panoramic views, garaging with studio/office above and a large modern outbuilding, set in about 4 acres.

The Property.
Summerway Farm is a particularly handsome detached farmhouse which has origins dating back to the 17th century and is a beautiful example of a Devon Longhouse. It is of traditional construction with colourwashed exterior elevations under a principally thatched roof with a later slated roof extension.

Summerway Farm retains a wealth of character features, all of which aid in creating a delightful period ambience, hence the property is Listed as Grade II. Features include two wonderful Beerstone inglenook fireplaces, exposed ceiling beams and cruck beams to the first floor, flagstone floors and plank and muntin screen to the kitchen/dining room.

To the first floor there are four bedrooms which can be accessed via two staircases, and the principal bedroom is worthy of note and is a large room with walk-in wardrobe and en-suite bathroom.

Summerway Farm is an ideal family property which would no doubt suit those looking for a lifestyle change and it has a great combination of space, convenient location close to the town of Colyton, and a great parcel of land.

Gardens and Grounds.
The property is approached from the lane through a 5-bar gate giving access to a parking area adjacent to which is a substantial detached 2-storey stone and tiled building which provides garaging, utility area with shower and a very useful first floor office/studio. This building has a variety of uses and would be perfect for those who work from home, or it could have further conversion potential subject of course to any necessary planning consents.

The gardens lie to the south and west of the property and are laid to level lawns and gain fabulous views over the valley. To the south is a kitchen garden with raised beds and greenhouse and a further yard with a separate lane access to a detached modern workshop and open store. The land lies to the west and runs down to the small Offwell Brook and extends to approximately 3.7 acres.

Summerway Farm is situated in a wonderful country position on the fringes of the village of Northleigh and commands stunning panoramic westerly views over some of East Devon's most glorious countryside. Set in a valley through which runs the tiny Offwell Brook (which bounds the land), Summerway Farm enjoys a quiet rural location, yet is readily accessible to the small town of Colyton some 3 miles to the south and the market town of Honiton some 5 miles to the north. The village of Northleigh serves a small community and has a village hall and pretty parish church.

Colyton offers a comprehensive range of shopping and recreational amenities, and the renowned Colyton Grammar School, one of the country's top mixed state schools is situated about a mile outside, on the outskirts of the country village of Colyford. The town, with its beautiful medieval church, is situated amongst some of East Devon's most attractive countryside, much of which is designated as being of outstanding natural beauty and there are a myriad of footpaths in the vicinity. The stunning World Heritage Jurassic Coast at Seaton, some 6 miles to the south, offers a long pebble beach and esplanade and there are beautiful coastal walks both east and west over the south west peninsular footpath.

The market town of Honiton has a great range of independent shops and sport and leisure facilities including a sports centre and swimming pool and a mainline rail link to London (Waterloo). The Cathedral City of Exeter is some 21 miles to the west and has an excellent shopping centre, theatres, mainline rail link to London (Paddington), international airport as well as M5 motorway access.

From Honiton High Street turn onto New Street and proceed to the top of the hill, turning left at the mini roundabout. Turn almost immediately right signposted Seaton. Climb the hill and continue past the Golf Course and take the third turning on the left (after about 2 miles) signposted Blamphayne. After about 200 yards take the first right hand turn and continue for about 1.5 miles to the bottom of the valley, turning right at the junction. Summerway Farm will be found after about 150 yards on the right hand side.
