Historic Devon longhouse for sale

Wingham Farmhouse is a Grade II listed traditional Devon longhouse located in the heart of the pretty mid-Devon countryside just one mile from the village of Morchard Bishop. The property is constructed of plastered cob under a thatched roof, which was re-thatched just last year.

The house retains many of its outstanding period features including many exposed beams throughout the property, and open fireplaces in the reception rooms. The drawing room, dining room and billiard room are all superb family and entertaining spaces, while the kitchen/breakfast room has a four oven Aga – the ground floor also houses the pantry, wine cellar and home office/study.

Upstairs are four spacious bedrooms, all en-suite, plus a further bedroom, a laundry room and a cloakroom.

Attached to the farmhouse is a self-contained cottage which was added in the mid-20th century. Currently used as a holiday cottage, the house has a sitting room, kitchen with dining area, three bedrooms and two bathrooms, one en-suite.
