New House Farm, Chipstable, - £695,000 | Reduced
New House Farm has been in the same ownership since 1998 and has both space and character. Combined with its very quiet location, it makes a very desirable home, together with the 6.5 acres that comes with the property.
It is believed that the original house dates from the 17th Century and was considerably extended and remodelled in the early 19th Century. It is principally of stone construction under a mainly slate roof. The Property has particularly adaptable accommodation which can be divided to provide a completely self-contained annexe with separate entrance and staircase. In addition, the hot water supply for the rear of the house is separate from the main House.
However, the rear house is heated by the oil fired central heating system as in the main house and augmented by a solid fuel system from the wood burning stove in the dining room.
Newhouse Farm occupies a delightful rural position, close to the Devon/Somerset border, some 4 miles South East of the Exmoor National Park and will therefore appeal to those interested in walking and riding. It stands in a elevated position, sheltered to the north, with wonderful southerly views over well wooded countryside. The small village of Chipstable centres around the parishchurch, whilst the larger village of Waterrow (1.5 miles distant) has an inn. Wiveliscombe provides facilities to meet everyday needs, including shops, inns and hotel, health centre and both primary and secondary Schools.
Taunton, the county town, has an excellent range of shops, schools and leisure facilities with, in addition, a high speed rail service to London (Paddington) and access to the M5 at junction 25.
