AN IMPOSING 6 BEDROOMED FARMHOUSE WITH 17.5 ACRES IN A DELIGHTFUL RURAL SETTING

Fairwater Farm enjoys a very special location in a delightful rural area. It is totally unspoilt and tucked away at the end of a private road in the Fairwater Valley.

In addition to south facing gardens and grounds the property has farmland (pasture and woodland) providing a total of 17.5 Acres or thereabouts.

The original stone built farmhouse has been sympathetically extended to provide spacious 6 Bedroomed accommodation making the most of the sunny aspect and views across the valley. It has been well cared for by the present owner who has lived here since 1987.

It is situated about a mile from Hawkchurch which must be one of the prettiest East Devon villages with many character cottages and period houses, parish church, primary school. community shop, pub and village hall. It is noted for its strong community spirit.

The coast at Lyme Regis and the market town of Axminster (with a main line railway station on the London Waterloo to Exeter line) are both about 6 miles away.
