Enchanting Devon farmhouse in very private location

Culverwell is a property situated in the delightful setting in a valley formed by the River Avon. For sale freehold, the house takes its name from the ‘Culver Well’ in its garden and the house is of considerable historic importance, dating back in parts to the 14th century. Later additions are of Georgian origin and the entire property has much character interest in the form of many period features including flagstone floors, decorative cornicing and open fireplaces. Bedrooms have wonderful exposed floorboards and window seats.

Accommodation in total comprises: porch, kitchen/living room, drawing room, utility room (former dairy), lean-to conservatory, three bedrooms and a family bathroom plus shower room.

In addition to the main house, there is a traditional L-shaped stone-built barn with a slate rood surrounding a very attractive cobbled courtyard with a circular pond in the centre. Part of the barn has been converted to a studio. There is also a former piggery and a former cider press. Planning permission has been granted to convert the outbuildings into residential accommodation.
