Tue 9 October 2018
Invest in your very own piece of history with our pick of the market’s best Grade II Listed properties.
Dream of living in a listed home? With a fascinating backstory and a price tag that is unlikely to reduce over time, buying a Grade II Listed property can be both a privilege and a financially sound investment. Not only are they usually beautiful buildings steeped in history, but they are often surrounded by unspoilt countryside or quintessential urban crescents or terraces. To celebrate these important architectural achievements, we’ve chosen our favourite West Country Grade II Listed properties.
Set in a peaceful pocket of Mid Devon countryside, this five-bedroom cob farmhouse dates back as far as the 16th century. With wonderful views over its own 63 acres of land to the River Dalch and woodland beyond, this property promises a peaceful and secluded location.
Tucked away on the edge of the small village of Merrymeet near Liskeard, this detached home is rich in character features with a beamed ceiling, slate floors and inglenook fireplace. Outside, its acre of land comprises beautiful gardens, an outbuilding and detached garage.
Forming part of the historic Tehidy Estate, this attached four-bedroom home is handsome and beautifully-proportioned. Surrounded by 42 acres of communal parkland, the property offers wonderful walks through Tehidy woods to the South West Coast Path and beaches beyond.
Brimming with original charm through extensive exposed beams, ceiling trusses and stonework, this barn conversion dates back to the 18th century. Imaginatively converted to retain its original cider press and workings, the property is rich in cultural, historical and archaeological heritage.
Retaining original beams, impressive fireplaces and stone mullion windows, this quaint village house has been lovingly updated to offer light, spacious and contemporary living spaces. Outside, the pretty garden and sun terrace is bordered with attractive mature trees, shrubs and flowers.
Beautifully modernised, this delightful family home is within level walking distance of Bridport town centre. Semi-detached, the period cottage dates back around 200 years and still retains a huge inglenook fireplace and restored stone mullion windows while offering planning permission to refurbish the double garage.
