    A BEAUTIFUL detached thatched farmhouse set in an idyllic rural location enjoying much tranquillity, mature gardens to over half an acre with outbuildings, 4 bedroomed accommodation to about 3,000 sq ft full of character and a wealth of history dating back to 14th century – no onward chain and ready for an immediate sale!

    Thorne Farm is a beautiful Grade II* listed thatched farmhouse located in a lovely rural location, surrounded by rolling Devon countryside about 1.5 miles from the village of Bow which is a peaceful, family-friendly village with a rustic country pub, a popular primary school and a Cooperative mini supermarket. Bow sits at the edge of an expansive, wild piece of country, bordered by wind-swept fields of wheat, shadowed by Dartmoor in the distance. It shares a church and common history with the nearby hamlet of Nymet Tracey. ‘Nymet’ means Sacred Grove in Celtic and to the west of Bow is a 3rd millennium BC woodhenge, once a place of spiritual significance for Pagan worshippers in the area.

    The property is found at the end of a long private driveway (which also serves 2 neighbouring barn conversions), surrounded by its mature gardens and open countryside.  The location is beautiful, very peaceful and is well away from any main roads.

    Thorne Farm is believed to date from the late 14th Century, and possibly even before Domesday as with the nearby hamlet of Walson it formed part of the Manor of Limet which was held by Saxton Waldo before 1066, and Thorne is mentioned in the Domesday Book.

    The property itself is of rendered cob and stone elevations beneath a thatched roof and enjoys many unspoilt period features including original fireplaces, exposed ceiling beams and joists, window seats and wooden floors. It also “includes a rare and relatively complete Medieval domestic roof”. The property requires a good degree of improvement and renovation.

    It offers accommodation of approaching 3,000sq ft with entrance hall leading off the porch. The dining room has a stunning fireplace, whilst the sitting room has a further stunning fireplace with wood burner, window seat and French doors to the garden. There is also a walk-in storage room. The kitchen/breakfast room has an inglenook fireplace with massive lintel and oil-fired Rayburn and a range of fitted cupboards. A rear hallway leads to a bathroom and further storage room.

    Two staircases lead up to the first floor with impressive landing with exposed roof timbers and part-exposed stone wall with doors to the study, the bathroom and bedroom 1. The second staircase leads up to three further bedrooms and separate cloakroom.

    To the front of the property is the entranceway and parking area with a gate leading to a garden path leading through camellias to the front door. To the front is also a garage with a track leading down the side of the property to the rear garden. The gardens surround the house and are enclosed with a wide range of well-established flower and shrub beds, plants and trees. There is also a vegetable garden and pond. Due to its position, there are some lovely views from the garden across the surrounding countryside.

    Attached to the rear of the house is a range of single-storey storage sheds and outhouses. Overall the property amounts to about 0.6 of an acre.

    SERVICES : Mains water. Mains electricity. Private drainage. Oil-fired Rayburn providing hot water and some radiators. Electric night storage heaters.
