Property Description

It’s certainly not every day that you can buy a home with its own fishing lake, let alone two, but Cranford Farm here in the small hamlet of Cranford on the outskirts of Woolsery offers just that.

Positioned in the relative remoteness of the rolling North Devon countryside this is a place where one can truly settle into the ‘good life’ thanks to its abundance of both bird and aquatic life whilst at the same time relaxing with a fishing rod and tackle in hand. You could say therefore that this really is any keen angler’s dream home.

The 1 1/2 acre larger lake also creates a perfect opportunity, with its well stocked numbers of mirror carp, to offer huge rental income potential to any would be buyer thanks also due to the two fishing cabins at opposing shore ends of the main lake as well as washing and cooking facilities close by.

The property is complimented by two further holiday let cabins and a gypsy caravan which are situated within the grounds. There is also a mature wooded area surrounding the smaller lake and which has hardstanding already laid in advance to create further glamping opportunities, subject to the necessary consents.

Cranford farm itself is a beautifully presented and deceptively spacious five -bedroom, six bathroom period farmhouse sitting on a total plot of 3.91 acres. Awash in a white stone lime render and a slate tiled roof to its many elevations the property sits back in its plot with the majority of it laid to lawn with entertaining areas positioned in the front of the building.

Accessed by a five- bar gate, off a quiet country lane the grounds feature a sweeping shingled drive, lawn and patio area as well as extensive parking for both residents and guests alike. .

Once inside the property you enter a storm porch which leads into a central hall with stairs rising to the first floor. To the right there is an exceptionally large reception room, currently used as a study with the rest of the hallway leading to all principal rooms

To the left-hand side of the hallway is the main living room and family room which are open planned and which have feature wood burners set into the chimney and recessed fireplaces. Character beams interconnect the spaces with a ground floor bedroom and en-suite leading off its far end, ideal for duel occupation or a guest room.

A utility/store also feature off the hall which in turn leads into the beautiful kitchen, breakfast room at its far end. Undoubtably the heart of the home the farmhouse kitchen extends 22ft and is typical for the style and age of this home. Featuring black granite work-surfaces, Belfast sink, range master double oven and integral wine cooler and a dishwasher the kitchen also includes a separate walk in pantry, ideal for long life food storage.

With ample space for a sizeable dining table and chairs the room benefits from a set of French doors connecting the room to the outstanding views over the gardens outside. The kitchen area includes underfloor heating. The ground floor also has a utility / boot room and downstairs cloakroom.

Venturing to the first floor there is a large landing which is blessed with an abundance of natural light thanks mainly to a large skylight positioned at the top of the stairs. There are four bedrooms which are all large doubles with the master being an extensive size and having the benefit of fitted wardrobes and a recently re-furbished en-suite shower and bathroom. Bedroom three also enjoys an en-suite shower with the remaining bedrooms being served by the family bathroom.

HOLIDAY CABINS - There are two separate log cabins located on the grounds which currently are empty with their own decking and patio areas. The largest includes a wash area and WC

FISHING CABINS - Two hay barn designed fisherman cabins are positioned at opposite ends of the main lake and each include a decked area and jetty on the water’s edge. Washing and toilet facilities are located close-by.

OUTBUILDINGS - Close to the front of the house is a garage and work shop.

NB – The vendor has heard from his architect that the council are supportive of any future planning application to convert the ancillary building into a holiday let.
