DESCRIPTION Lower Bagmores Farm is a period farmhouse with extensive, flexible accommodation, including five bedrooms, set on the edge of the small village of Exton, on the banks of the River Exe in the heart of Devon. The property also includes a three bedroom detached Annexe, a three bedroom Lodge and farm outbuildings, including barns and stables, plus approximately 5.8 acres of land. Due to its spacious, flexible accommodation, the property would lend itself well to multi-generational living, or the Lodge and Annexe could be let out to provide an additional income.
