THE PROPERTY

An intriguing period farmhouse, Listed Grade II, with immense character and charm with two bedroom annexe cottage and studio barn set within a tiny, peaceful Hamlet. The exact age of Pulmans Farm is unknown but it certainly dates back to the Sixteenth Century and is certainly worthy of its Grade II listing. Well-restored by the present owners, the property now offers three bedroom accommodation with endless character and charm. The dining room has a magnificent inglenook fireplace with Bressummer beam and open grate, plank and muntin screen, ceiling timbers and arch door frame leads into the sitting room also with a fireplace, wood burning stove and a staircase rising up to the principal bedroom. In addition to the farmhouse, the principal barn has been converted to provide two / three bedroom ancillary accommodation. Alternatively, it could be run as a Holiday Letting cottage. Other outbuildings suitable for easy conversion to a studio / home office and a small barn providing garden storage. Pulmans Farm occupies a peaceful setting within this tiny Hamlet which looks across a beautiful patchwork of farmland and hills, offering the ''country idyll'. The property is set amidst endless footpaths and bridleways which are easily accessed from the property and close by are areas of common land at Hartridge and Dumpon Hill, a local landmark and Iron Age hill fort owned by the National Trust. The small village of Luppitt is close by with its parish church and small village inn, whilst Honiton, well known for its antiques markets, is approximately four miles away and has a mainline station with trains to London, Waterloo and a range of good shopping and sports facilities. Taunton is also within easy reach with its larger shopping centre, many good schools and is the home of the Somerset County Cricket Ground. Exeter to the west also boasts an excellent shopping centre. The coasts at Sidmouth and Branscombe are all within a short drive, as is Lyme Regis, found along the Jurassic Coast. The original farmstead is grouped around a gently sloping courtyard and has steps up to the main entrance of the house. Gently sloping lawned gardens stretch out to the north and enjoy glorious outlooks across to unspoilt East Devon countryside. A further enclosed area of garden lies to the south.
