14 Jan Almost 30 viewings over five weeks, and… sold
A fabulously located, double-fronted detached farmhouse with barns, outbuildings and 10 acres of Devon countryside near Ashburton attracted tens of viewers and has been sold to a local buyer for owner occupation.
The Newton Abbot branch of Rendells, the long-established firm of chartered surveyors, auctioneers, valuers, land and estate agents, marketed the property over the summer. During a five-week period, the agents conducted almost 30 viewings on the property and the sale was negotiated to a local buyer, who moved in just in time to enjoy the Christmas festivities in their new home.
On the market at an asking price of £775,000, the house itself dates from the late 19th Century and has three bedrooms as well as two attic rooms. Within its 10 acres of grounds is a range of barns and outbuildings.
Charles Morgan, sales negotiator at Rendells, said: “We received a lot of interest in this property from a wide range of buyers. Sitting in a peaceful, unspoilt rural setting with spectacular views, the house will benefit from some updating, but it will make an absolutely wonderful home.
“There is currently particular demand for property in rural Devon. Now is a great time to take advantage of that and start making plans for a move in the Spring.”
