Heathfield Farm is situated in a delightful, peaceful, unspoilt part of Devon, close to the Exe Valley and only 3.5 miles from the edge of the university and cathedral city of Exeter. At Heathfield there are three properties, a thatched farmhouse, a house created from a barn some years ago and this property lies on the northern side of the farmstead. It is set well back from the quiet lane. It is midway between two sought after villages being Thorverton (1.5 miles) which has a primary school, church, community hall, village shop, post office, farm shop, two pubs, football and cricket clubs whilst Brampford Speke (1.8 miles) has a pub, primary school and church. Exeter has a wealth of facilities befitting its importance as well as railway stations on the Paddington and Waterloo lines.DESCRIPTION
The detached building, as its name suggests, is a Tallet Barn being open fronted where historically cattle were kept on the ground floor with a loft over for hay.
The south facing barn has an approved imaginative scheme prepared for reverse level living to take full advantage of the attractive views from the first floor. The scheme indicates on the ground floor, hall with spiral staircase, day room, bedroom and bathroom. On the first floor will be a wonderful open plan dining / evening room, galley kitchen, plus bedroom and bathroom.
A revised scheme could be agreed with the council.
The property owns its own long drive off the road, partly bordered by an arboretum with a wide variety trees. This driveway also serving the other barn conversion at the farm (they contribute 50% of the maintenance).
There is a concrete parking area at the front, a former farm building on the west side and then existing gardens on the east and north sides. Adjoining is an excellent mainly level, high quality pasture paddock suitable for cropping and grazing.
Overall the property amounts to 4.96 acres.PLANNING PERMISSION
