Positioned in an accessible rural location between the ancient rural village of Talaton and the town of Ottery St. Mary, this historic former Mill house runs down to River Tale and includes two useful outbuildings.

The village of Talaton to the north has a strong community centre with a church, village shop, parish hall and pub. The neighbouring village of Feniton also offers a range of facilities including a primary school and a train station situated on the London Waterloo line. Ottery St. Mary is situated a short distance to the south and ensures that this property falls into The King's School catchment area.

Understood to date back to the mid 17th Century, this historic former farmhouse has been renovated over the years to form a comfortable family home.

The accommodation in the house includes a cross passage hall, with electric under-floor heating, a sitting room with a large wood burner, dining room with exposed timber floor and a nice size kitchen/breakfast room with pantry and is fitted with French doors opening to the garden.
The kitchen has a central island, an Esse range cooker which does the central heating, and a selection of units under a granite style worktop; (please note the large LPG range cooker is not included, but maybe available for £1,500 to the purchaser). On the ground floor is a family bathroom with free standing bath and shower, and a study area with storage.

On the first floor are three double bedrooms and a partly completed ensuite shower room.

Partly converted to form a study/office, the old stables has electric connected. On the end is a storage area, please note the items with this area are to be left and are included in the sale.

This two storey brick barn and the adjoining 'cob barn' has partly collapsed and is currently UNSAFE TO ENTER. Please note the items with this area are to be left and are included in the sale.

Planning and listed building consent was granted (Ref 02 P2202 and 02 P2203) on 19.11.2002 for 'Alterations and change of use from agricultural building to form office and storage' of the Brick and Cob Barn. It was thought this was unimplemented and has therefore lapsed.

Please note that the mineral rights are owned separately dating from the 1970's. There was a flood event in 2008, in common with the surrounding area.

From Fairmile on the Old A30, in a short distance before you go over the A30 bridge the property is on your right.
