Looking for a project? A large detached former farmhouse offering characterful and versatile accommodation. Internally, the house is currently split into main house with separate self-contained annexe but the layout could be re-arranged to provide one large five bedroom house if preferred. The accommodation comprises: main house - three bedrooms and family bathroom, hallway, large lounge, farmhouse kitchen, large utility room, cloakroom and store. The annexe comprises two bedrooms and shower room, lounge and kitchen with it's own entrance. The property is in need of some work but has some lovely features throughout, with original fireplaces including a large Inglenook and exposed ceiling and wall beams. There are plenty of storage areas and cupboards throughout the house making best use of all the nooks and crannies. Outside, there is garden on two sides with a yard and store room at the back and a gated driveway. The property has been let in recent years and would benefit from a new owner who is keen to make their own mark and turn the property back into a loved home once again.

The house is situated in Musbury village, which offers many facilities, including a shop and post office, petrol station and car repairs, village pub, Church, primary school and regular bus services. The village offers easy access to nearby towns, the railway station at Axminster, less than 3 miles away, (with trains to London Waterloo and Exeter) and good road links. The Jurassic coast and pretty Axmouth Harbour is just over 3 miles to the south. For those who enjoy walking, Musbury is well positioned with some very good walks from the door step, in particular the walk up to Musbury Castle, an Iron Age Hill fort from where there are great views over the Axe Valley.

The property was left in a poor state by the previous tenant and as a result now requires renovation in many areas. The current heating system has been de-commissioned. The electricity was cut off but the vendor assures me that it can be reconnected easily. There is a pedestrian right of way over the parking area for the owners of the adjoining cottages to reach Maidenhayne Lane.
