A wonderful detached Grade II Listed farmhouse in a tranquil location within the Exe Valley.

Believed to date from the 15th or 16th century, Greenslinch Farm is a part-rendered cob and stone family home offering over 3,200 sq. ft. of light-filled flexible accommodation. The property is presented to an excellent standard and has recently been extensively renovated throughout. There are many retained character features including double glazed casement windows, exposed beams and open fires.

The ground floor accommodation flows from a welcoming through dining room with flagstone flooring and includes a large sitting room with a fireplace and wood burner, window seating and an original oak newel staircase to the principal bedroom, reportedly mentioned in the Domesday Book. There is also a good size double aspect family room with another wood burner, and a well-proportioned study with appealing exposed wooden flooring. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a spacious kitchen/breakfast room with flagstone flooring, a range of stylish fitted units including a central island, a Heritage Range cooker and a separate fitted utility room.

On the first floor, Greenslinch Farm offers a stunning principal bedroom with a high vaulted ceiling, extensive built-in storage, window seating and a very well-presented en suite bathroom with twin basins, a freestanding bath and modern double shower. There are also four further double bedrooms and a contemporary family shower room.

This property has 1 acres of land.

Outside

Greenslinch Farm has the benefit of a well-maintained garden measuring approximately an acre. There are spacious lawned areas to the south and west of the house, interspersed with gravel paths and mature shrubs. The garden features a swimming pool with a paved surround and covered poolside seating areas, ideal for entertaining and al fresco dining. There are also three barns, one currently used as a gym, suitable for a variety of uses.
