Woodhouse Farm, South Molton


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
A superbly located barn with approval for conversion into an impressive family home. Plans indicate hall, living room, kitchen/dining/family area, utility, playroom, study, 4 bedrooms (2 with dressing room and en-suite) and bathroom. Car port, parking and paddock. Total about 0.79 acres.


The barn forms part of a traditional farmstead located at the end of a private lane within an organic farm just over two miles from the popular market town of South Molton. The town has a good range of shopping, social and banking facilities and amenities including schooling to secondary level. Dating from Saxon times, it has some fine buildings, interesting shops, a museum, stock market on Thursdays and a popular pannier market on Thursdays and Saturdays.

The A361 North Devon Link Road bypasses South Molton and provides access to the regional centre of Barnstaple to the west and to Tiverton and the M5 (Junction 27) to the east. There is a main line railway station at Tiverton Parkway on the London Paddington line.


The Atcost barn provides an exciting opportunity to create an individual rural home set in about three quarters of an acre and with superb, unspoilt views across the valley.

Currently a modern-style farm building, the plans submitted for the planning application provide for a large open plan kitchen/dining/family area, utility, cloakroom, play room, study, living room, 4 bedrooms (2 with dressing room and en-suite) and family bathroom.


As part of the change of use, provision has been made for a double car port and a private amenity area around the barn. In addition there is a gently sloping and south-facing paddock to the side of the barn which also takes full advantage of the views across the valley.
