West Bursdon Farm, located in the small Devonshire hamlet of Bursdon, with West Bursdon Farm being one of only four properties situated at the end of a long private lane just off of the A39, giving a feeling of privacy and seclusion, yet close to amenities. It is believed that parts of the farmhouse date back to the early 16th Century with the property being since extended and more recently sympathetically renovated by the current owners in the 30 years they have lived at the farm. The buildings form an attractive traditional courtyard comprising a detached four bedroom stone and cob period farmhouse under a recently replaced slate roof and a series of useful stone barns. The farmhouse is comfortable, light and airy with country style kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, WC and two cosy reception rooms on the ground floor and four double bedrooms and family bathroom on the first floor.
The barns include workshop and storage barns as well as a detached stone barn and attached carport, which could be converted into auxiliary accommodation or holiday letting barn/income, subject to planning. The formal gardens wrap around the property, with the buildings nestling into the southern slope, giving long extensive views over the diverse surrounding countryside and woodland with glimpses of the sea.
