Property description

A detached three bedroom farmhouse with an Old Shippon benefiting from permission to convert to a residential dwelling and approximately 29 acres of agricultural and amenity land.

Extending in total to approximately 29 acres, Higher Hare Farm enjoys an excellent reputation as a productive smallholding offering an excellent opportunity for those seeking a farm with a view in this favoured location. The farm offers a picturesque, tranquil and unspoilt position, with views over the surrounding countryside yet within minutes of all amenities.

The holding offers the original farmhouse set in an elevated position which could benefit from renovation throughout, following which will offer very comfortable family accommodation. The barn benefits from permission to convert to a two bedroom dwelling and a ring fence block of agricultural land and woodland has previously been used for grazing and cutting.

Higher Hare Farm is situated within a rural location but only 4 miles west of Exeter on the edge of the popular village of Whitestone. The village has local facilities including a community hall, parish church and local pubs. The village provides an easy access route into the city centre and to St David’s station, whereby the city provides a range of regional facilities. Access to the A30 is nearby, in the next village of Tedburn St Mary, proving an easy route to the M5 motorway and Exeter Airport without having to cross the city. The property is situated within an elevated position with stunning panoramic views over the surrounding countryside from the Exe estuary across to Dartmoor.
