About This Property


A beautifully presented detached country residence together with 2 holiday cottages, studio barn conversion with 7 ensuite bedrooms set in approx. 3 acres offering considerable business potential.

Glebe Farm is an important local property thought to date back to the late 17th century and originally built as the vicarage. This Grade II listed property is now a beautifully presented 5 bedroom character home finished to a particularly high standard. The property has been the subject of an extensive yet sympathetic refurbishment and development programme, over the years resulting in well-proportioned family accommodation and now considerable business and income potential.

Situated adjacent and to the rear of the farmhouse is a superb courtyard arrangement of traditional red brick barns which afford considerable business appeal having been tastefully converted in 2018 utilising green energy sources to create two holiday units (2 bed & 3 bed disabled holiday let), a main studio benefiting from separate living & dining, a commercial kitchen with 7 ensuite bedrooms above accessed with two staircases. The studio space is considered suitable for arts and crafts and many other uses to suit individual business needs, subject to planning.

The delightful combination of a characterful house and letting units afford a rare opportunity to purchase a property with significant income and business appeal. The farmhouse, cottages and studio are further complimented by the adjoining pasture land, which also enjoys independent access from the country lane, with the property extending in total to about 3.00 Acres.

The property enjoys a delightful rural environment situated just outside the sought after East Devon Village of Payhembury in the unspoilt and gently undulating countryside between Honiton and Exeter. Payhembury enjoys a thriving local community with its village shop, post office, public house, primary school and parish church, whilst further facilities are available at nearby Feniton, which also provides a mainline railway station.
The A30 lies within a few miles of the property from where the historic market town of Honiton is readily accessible offering a useful range of everyday shops, restaurants, public houses and educational facilities, together with a supermarket, sports centre and further train station.

The A30 is readily accessible and also provides easy access to the Cathedral City of Exeter and the M5 motorway (Junction 29). Access to the M5 motorway can also be gained when heading north at Cullompton (Junction 28), with the Somerset county town of Taunton beyond.

The world heritage coastline to the south boasts pretty coastal towns and villages such as Sidmouth, Branscombe and Beer. International airports are available at Exeter and Bristol.

Gardens surround the property on two sides, to the front comprising an attractive lawned area with a privet hedge and wrought iron gate and pathway leading to the front door. The gardens continue to the side of the house extending in a southerly direction with mature plant and shrub borders. A covered passageway to the rear of the house provides access to a Office 16'7" x 13'7" (5.05m x 4.14m) and Store Room 16'7" x 11'5" (5.05m x 3.48m). Covered sitting area with flagstones and Gardeners WC. Courtyard garden with an ornamental pond. The house has a Cellar which is currently accessed from outside although internal access may be possible by reinstating a former door.

A further area of pasture adjoins the courtyard to the north with a separate gated access from the road. In total the property extends to about 3.02 Acres.
