Bridge Farm represents a versatile farmhouse currently set up as two residences occupying a beautifully tucked away position in a sought after part of North Devon yet easily accessible. The main residence is currently set up as two individual occupations with a further cider barn to the east of the main farmhouse.

The residence is centered upon a beautiful enclosed walled garden and to the west of the farmhouse the mature grounds provide a haven for wildlife. Bridge Farm is easily accessible with the A377 being located a short distance and Kings Nympton railway station approximately half a mile away.
The Farmhouse
Bridge Farmhouse is believed to date back to the circa 17th century but very possibly earlier fabric concealed, having been built for the Presbytery of Wells cathedral. The farmhouse is Grade II listed and consists of rendered stone and cob under a part thatched and part slate tiled roof, believed to have been gentrified in the Victorian era with additions including Sash windows. The farmhouse is split into two occupations, the through passage partition forming the dividing wall. Each occupation has individual entrances, however the farmhouse accommodation could easily be reinstated as one residence should a prospective purchaser desire. The accommodation is vast with the main entrance being on the south roadside. The beautifully presented accommodation of the main residence is entered via a welcoming entrance hall with French Oak flooring and an archway with access to the kitchen, reception room, living room and further inner hallway, the entrance hall also houses cupboard storage ideal for coats and shoes. The first reception room is a delightfully light room with light flooding in through the bay window, currently being used as an office the room has wonderful characterful features such as the open fireplace with timber surround, timber window seat and French oak flooring.

The living room is a superb family room with French Oak flooring, shuttered windows over looking the walled garden, woodburning stove with a slate hearth and stone surround, and a useful storage cupboard.

Bridge Farm enjoys a delightful and yet readily accessible semi rural prominent position between the village of Burrington and the River Taw valley, located approximately 100 yards down a quiet country lane above the A377. Kings Nympton railway station is also within walking distance, approximately half a mile down the road. Burrington is the nearest village, a small village set in the heart of rural Devon. The village offers a community run village shop, whilst the nearby popular small country town of Chulmleigh provides a thriving and very active local community which has managed to retain a good range of local services. The town has highly regarded schools including pre-school and an Academy College providing primary and secondary levels, a sports centre, various shops, a health centre, dentist, public houses and restaurants and a historic town hall. Despite its rural position the town still enjoys easy access to the surrounding districts and further afield with the larger towns of South Molton, Barnstaple, Crediton and city of Exeter providing an extensive range of everyday shopping, banking, recreational and educational facilities.
The property is surrounded by picturesque North Devon countryside which provides a wealth of outdoor activities including walking, horse riding, cycling, sea, coarse and game fishing, and golf courses. To the north the Exmoor National Park offers beautiful moorland scenery with many foot and bridle paths, whilst the stunning North Devon coast is easily accessible, with popular sandy beaches at Instow, Saunton Sands, Croyde Bay, Putsborough and Woolacombe. From Kings Nympton station the picturesque Tarka line runs to Exeter St David’s with further connecting mainline services to London, whilst Exeter Central station provides easy access to the excellent shopping facilities the city has to offer. From South Molton the A361 North Devon link road provides easy access to Tiverton and the M5 motorway (J27). Mainline intercity rail links are also available at Tiverton Parkway (London Paddington approx. 2 hours) with international airports at Exeter and Bristol.

To the front of the farmhouse is a mature shrubbed area with flower beds and a path leading to the front door. A driveway sweeps around to the rear of the property that provides parking for several vehicles. To the East of the farmhouse is a charming cottage style walled garden with a gate and path leading to the historic cross passage external oak door, flanked with flower beds and lawn. The Old Cider Barn can be accessed from the walled garden. The Old Cider Barn believes to date back to the 17th century with characterful features such as chamfered mullion windows with four pigeon holes to the right above an old dairy window and exposed timber beams. Cobbled floor with stairs to the second floor hay loft. There is a lean to the rear. Architectural drawings have been drawn to create a three bedroomed, two bathroom accommodation. Note: The first floor of The Old Cider Barn is hazardous and, for their own safety, prospective purchasers are requested not to enter this part. There is a single garage of stone construction with timber doors and an ancillary shed on the side. To the side of the farmhouse is a useful stone outbuilding currently used for storage. The land extends down to the main road with a former vegetable area and lawn next to the parking area and with a mixture of mature shrubs and wooded area which has been left currently as a wildlife haven and lends itself for further scope.
