A particularly charming Devon Longhouse with converted linhay occupying a magical private setting. The exact history of Higher Lodfin is unknown but it is believed to date back to the early 17th Century and is worthy of its Grade II listing. Great character and charm is found throughout the property which has central hall with plank and muntin screens, sitting room with French windows out into the gardens, a small study area and door leads through into a utility. On the opposite side of the hall is a spacious dining room with an inglenook fireplace, painted ceiling beams and a window looking to the front of the house. The kitchen / breakfast room has a four oven AGA, a range of wood fronted storage cupboards and ample room for a breakfast table. The bedrooms are all of good size and all lie across the front of the house with lovely south facing views. In addition to the main house there is a detached converted stone linhay which provides a first floor studio with a spiral staircase leading down to a sitting room / office which has shower room and further door out to the front garden. The linhay provides perfect space for those wishing to write, or paint or indeed work from home. Higher Lodfin occupies a totally peaceful and secluded setting at the end of a No Through lane surrounded by traditional, picturesque Devonshire countryside where little has changed for centuries. The property lies close to the sought after town of Bampton. The town includes an ancient church, traditional shops, including a butcher, greengrocer, baker, a post office within the Spar and Costcutters convenience stores, library, doctors' surgery, chemist and a veterinary practice. Dulverton, the heart of Exmoor, is a short distance from the property and has excellent amenities and restaurants. A little further away is Tiverton, well known for its independent Blundells School and good shopping centre. Tiverton Parkway railway station has fast trains to London taking approximately two hours and M5 motorway Junction 27 provides fast and easy access to London and Exeter. Bampton is found on the edge of Exmoor providing excellent walking and riding countryside and further sporting facilities are found at both the Cathedral City of Exeter with its university and excellent shopping and Taunton, just over the border into Somerset, also known for its good independent schools.
