Unique Opportunity to Stay Ahead of the Herd

March 2023

Superlatives are unnecessary when it comes to describing a “one-off” residential holding in an outstanding rural position set between Dartmoor and Exmoor.

Horridge Farm, Ashreigney, near Chulmleigh, Devon, is operated as a commercial deer farm, and has been in the current vendors ownership since 1989. They are now retiring.

Richard Webber, of Greenslade Taylor Hunt’s South Molton office, said: “The sale of Horridge Farm provides prospective purchasers an extremely rare opportunity to acquire a versatile rural property, affording an eclectic mix of residential, development, agricultural and amenity appeal.”

It is on the market at a guide price of £1.8M as a whole – extending to around 112.63 acres or the property may be available in two lots.

The farmhouse takes full advantage of the wonderful views and has been designed with an “upside down” layout to maximise its situation. Natural light floods through the triple aspect windows in the kitchen/breakfast room. A split level lounge and dining area with a central feature wood burning stove on a stone plinth provides a focal point, while this area also enjoys a triple aspect.

Converted from a traditional stone and slate barn the property retains many original features, while incorporating the best of modern comforts.

The five-bedroom accommodation incorporates a self-contained annexe with scope for providing holiday rental income.

The farm buildings have been specifically designed for deer handling and the land is deer fenced.

A large modern agricultural barn on the farm has recently been granted planning consent to create a four-bedroom home in this fabulous setting.

This is available as a separate lot at a guide price of £450,000 and includes pasture and woodland extending to about 28.45 acres.
