Property description

Location

Roborough, Barnstaple

introduction

Dating from 1851, Roborough Farm House occupies a commanding position with exceptional views over open countryside and down the Taw Estuary to the sea and yet only a few moments drive from Barnstaple centre and North Devon District Hospital. It is one of the finest houses in North Devon and now that the current owners have completely renovated and restored the farm house to the highest specification, the result is a beautiful and prestigious family residence that would be difficult to surpass anywhere. There is also the possibility to extend, subject to planning permission.

North Devon boasts some of the finest beaches in the country and together with several 18 hole golf courses nearby and the proximity to beautiful Exmoor National Park it makes the area outstanding for all forms of sporting recreation. It is just a short distance to the A361 North Devon Link Road and within 45 minutes drive from Tiverton mainline railway station and the M5.

Accommodation

The very flexible accommodation includes generous room dimensions. The lower ground/garden level has under floor heating and now houses the most spectacular Italian kitchen/breakfast room as well as the boot room and a large snug. Both rooms have French doors leading onto the lovely terrace, south-facing decking and gardens.

On the ground floor is the elegant drawing room with large open fireplace as well as a beautifully appointed guest suite and study/bedroom 3, both with working fireplaces and spectacular views.

On the first floor is the master bedroom suite as well as 2 further double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Roborough Farm House is approached over a sweeping drive with ample parking. There is a double garage, log store and large stone outbuilding. The gardens form an important part of the property. Laid to attractive sloping lawns with established trees and shrubs, a newly built ornamental pond, large sun terrace, formal walled rose and lavender garden with stone and slate privy and some of the most spectacular far reaching views of any property in North Devon.
