Having been rented by our vendors family since 1897 and subsequently purchased in 1923, the sale of Bycott Farm represents a rare opportunity to acquire a versatile residential holding occupying a delightful and yet readily accessible position within an extremely sought-after part of rural East Devon. The farmhouse is well-positioned within its own land and whilst now in need of modernisation it affords great potential to be an attractive family home. Furthermore, benefiting from two staircases, with some internal adjustment it may appeal to those purchasers with multigenerational interests.
