    Located in a stunning unspoilt rural setting with superb views over the dramatic surrounding countryside, Sandy Park Farm represents a unique opportunity to acquire a traditional former smallholding centred upon a smartly presented dwelling, a range of adaptable outbuildings and traditional barns, together with the adjoining gardens and paddock, extending in all to about 1.32 acres.

    Despite requiring some finishing externally, the property undoubtedly provides tremendous potential for enlargement/incorporation of a traditional barn, creation of separate dwellings/holiday letting income or dual occupancy (subject to obtaining any appropriate planning consents). A prospective purchaser may look to remove some of the more temporary lean-to barns to open up the space between the buildings and gain further usable ground to compliment the property. Beneath the render of the main farmhouse is traditional stonework, which in part has been exposed and if fully revealed would provide very attractive elevations.

    The spacious accommodation has been beautifully restored whilst retaining much of the charm and character of the original building, and in brief comprises; entrance porch, hallway, lovely living room with woodburning stove and flagstone flooring, a superb open-plan kitchen/dining room with inglenook style fireplace containing both a dual fuel range cooker and oil fired Rayburn, complete with bread oven. The hall leads to the former dairy, now used as a utility/store. The first floor provides a spacious landing, four bedrooms together with a large family bathroom with freestanding roll top bath and separate shower.

    Sandy Park Farm is approached via its own long private driveway which leads to the front parking area. A right of way leads over the initial part of the lane to benefit the owners of the modern building, which is in the process of being converted into a dwelling (as shown on the enclosed identification plan). Further detail is available upon request.


    To the front of the main dwelling is an attractive, enclosed and predominantly south facing garden laid mainly to lawn with paved areas and central pathway. Adjoining the garden is an enclosed pasture paddock.

    Beside the parking area is a useful stone building providing store areas, car port/garaging or workshop space.

    A further substantial range of outbuildings provide a superb opportunity for those seeking alternative uses.

    Please refer to the enclosed floorplan for layout and dimensions and view the Virtual Tour to walk around the property and grounds.

    In all, Sandy Park Farm extends to about 1.32 acres.


    Sandy Park Farm commands a superb elevated position just 2 miles from the popular village of Brayford, 6 miles to the market town of South Molton and 9 miles from Barnstaple, providing a balance of rural lifestyle with easy access to the close by amenities.
