MERRYFIELDS is a traditional farmhouse in an idyllic location overlooking the Dalch Valley, and comes complete with a detached log cabin, a swimming pool, sauna, and a hot tub – all lying in more than 12 acres of land.

This secluded, beautiful property in the village of Lapford lies 10 miles from Crediton and 18 miles from Exeter. It is approached from a private lane which leads to its elevated position overlooking the property's gardens, pastures, and woodland.

Oliver Custance Baker, of Strutt & Parker, said: "Merryfields offers a buyer the opportunity to embrace the sort of lifestyle people are looking for. With the traditional farmhouse, additional accommodation with the log cabin, the garden and land, it provides a country home, while still being accessible to Exeter and Crediton."

Merryfields has three reception rooms, one of which adjoins a ground floor shower room, so would make ideal additional sleeping accommodation on the ground floor, if required; a kitchen with a Rayburn; a utility room; and four bedrooms on the first floor, one of which has en suite facilities. There is also a first floor bathroom.

Outside, there is additional accommodation in the form of a two-bedroom log cabin and there are also a number of outbuildings, including some former stabling currently used as a workshop, a mower store and adjoining workshop.

There is a four-bay open-fronted timber frame building under a corrugated roof; a formal area of garden with a pond; two paddocks adjoining the river and a broadleaved woodland with a large lake.

Strutt & Parker is offering Merryfields for sale at a guide price of £500,000. For further information or to arrange a viewing, call 01392 215631.
