Description

Winstitchen Farm occupies a secluded rural location at the head of a long shared private drive amidst breath taking scenery. The property is thought to date back to 1840 and is traditionally built mainly of local stone with rendered elevations under a slate tiled roof. The property is typically Victorian with well proportioned rooms and good ceiling heights giving a sense of scale with the principal rooms taking full advantage of the rural setting overlooking an unspoilt landscape. Its rural position on the moor provides a genuinely peaceful setting rarely found in Southern England.

The property has been much altered and modernised over the years. The farmstead comprises two separate dwellings, the farmhouse and the cottage, plus an extensive range of traditional stables complete with tack and storage rooms, all set around a large yard.

The arrangement and measurements of the rooms can be seen on the accompanying floorplans.

Winstitchen Farm is currently a successful self catering property for up to 10 people in the farmhouse, however, it could readily be used as a private house, providing valuable income. In addition much potential exists to convert the traditional stables subject to the usual planning permissions to provide more extensive living accommodation.

THE FARMHOUSE

The living accommodation briefly comprises a welcoming reception hall with staircase leading to a well proportioned drawing room which has a fireplace with large wood burning stove and French doors leading to the enclosed garden and with extensive views to Exmoor countryside.

The spacious farmhouse kitchen has handmade maple units with oak work surfaces, double Belfast sink and two oven oil fired Aga. The kitchen has access to the spacious boot room, pantry, cloakroom and laundry room with direct access via the back door to the yard. Also on the ground floor is a large bedroom with en suite shower room. On the first floor there are three very large double bedrooms, all with en suite bath or shower rooms each benefitting from wonderful moorland views.

THE COTTAGE

The single storey cottage is built in a similar manner to the farmhouse and has recently been upgraded. The cottage is separately accessed has a superb open plan kitchen/sitting room with exposed stone wall and fireplace with log burning stove. The kitchen has Shaker style cupboards. The two double bedrooms and shower room are accessed from the hallway and overlook the courtyard.

OUTSIDE

The property is approached via a sweeping drive leading to an attractive courtyard providing ample parking around a central circular lawn. Away from the farmhouse, on the west side of the courtyard is an extensive range of traditional loose boxes with a covered passageway to the rear of the stables. Adjacent to the cottage are further large loose boxes, a large tack room with storage area. The private garden to the farmhouse lies to the south and is entirely laid to lawn with a stone paved semi circular terrace. There are three turn-out paddocks all with their own water supply enclosed by traditional earth banks, some built of stone walling and established beech hedges. In total the property extends to 5.98 acres. Excellent riding can be enjoyed directly from the property itself.
