*Watch the Video Tour* Outstanding country views, c. 5 acres paddock and outbuildings, and a very convenient location, less than five minutes from the M5 motorway and Tiverton Parkway station. Perfect for home working or commuting from your own smallholding. No onward chain.
Hillhead Farm is the perfect property for those looking for country living, maybe with a smallholding or horses, whilst requiring very quick access to the motorway and station at Tiverton Parkway for commuting (London Paddington in c. 2 hours).
This classic Devon longhouse is Grade II listed, and offers very comfortable and spacious accommodation, ideal for a family and working from home. The enviable views can be enjoyed from most of the rooms and some fine original features have been retained to enhance the appeal and charm. The farmhouse kitchen has an Aga, providing a lovely warm and welcoming atmosphere, and there are original fireplaces, with wood burners for the winter evenings, augmented by oil fired central heating, when required.
At the front of the house, there is a detached garden room or studio, designed to make the very best of the outlook and adding a fantastic extra dimension to the living space, for relaxing and dining, or perhaps a home office.
On entering Hillhead Farm there is ample parking with garden borders and to one side, an enclosed courtyard with a useful range of outbuildings. These include stabling, storage and a workshop and have potential for further development, subject to relevant consents.
The main garden is extensive and principally laid to lawn, giving way to the paddock of approximately five acres, currently grass pasture. This is currently let to a local farmer on a one year Farm Business Tenancy until September 2021 - further details on request.
The village of Uffculme is nearby, with an extensive range of amenities, including a popular primary school, regular bus services and the renowned, Ofsted rated 'Outstanding' secondary school, Uffculme School. The market towns of Tiverton and Cullompton are a short drive away and via the motorway, Exeter and Taunton are within easy reach. Tiverton has the popular Blundells School and Petroc College for further education.
The popular Tiverton Golf Course and Tiverton Parkway Golf Centre and driving range lie within easy reach, for the keen golfer. Exeter Chiefs, at Sandy Park, and Somerset Cricket Club in Taunton, are also very handy!
