2 Knowle Road, EX9
Clyst Hayes Farm includes a characterful old thatched farmhouse, renovated to 21st Century standards, a recently converted barn with pretty cobbled courtyards and a three-bay garage with a generous store and lean-to potting shed. The property is surrounded by a cottage garden (0.53ha) on three sides with open fields beyond and a quiet lane in front. The garden has several fruit trees with soft fruit bushes and raised beds to the side, as well as a fig tree in the courtyard. The coast path and golf course are only a 10 min. walk away and Woodbury Common is a 20 min walk to Squabmoor Reservoir and beyond. Traditional shops in Budleigh Salterton are about a 10min. walk and the beach is at the end of the High St.
The main house is constructed of cob and stone with a thatch roof. Downstairs the windows are tall and light with three reception rooms, a modern kitchen, walk in pantry, cloakroom, laundry room and small garden room. There are two cottage style staircases up to a landing with three double bedrooms, one single bedroom, a large family bathroom and cloakroom. It is heated with a new gas boiler and has a mains pressure hot water system. The whole property is Grade II listed and has mains water, sewage, gas, electricity. The thatch has been surveyed in January 2018 and should have a few more years before re-thatching. The vendors are prepared to reduce the asking price by the re-thatching quote, both as a gesture of goodwill and to allow the new owners to design the finish they prefer.
The barn is about 250 years old and has lovely sandstone walls with a slate roof and was converted to a truly high standard by local craftsmen at the end of 2015. It was designed as a flexible property that can be used as two flats or one house via a connecting balcony, surrounding a private, pretty courtyard. There are three large reception rooms, three bedrooms with en-suites plus a family bathroom, utility room and a garage/workshop. There is underfloor heating downstairs and radiators upstairs. A bespoke oak spiral staircase connects the balcony and two main reception rooms and looks stunning.
