This characterful farmhouse for sale is nearly 500 years old and backs onto the countryside.
Shephards Westwood, in Crediton, dates back to the 17th century, with a Salcombe sandstone plaque inscribed with the year 1659.
There are period features throughout the home, which has a thatched roof, lateral stacks, wooden window casements and a divided brick chimney shaft.
Entering the property, there is a sitting room with an inglenook fireplace and exposed timber beams, and adjacent is a study.
Also connected to the sitting room is a home gym, which could be used as an office, a reception space or a bedroom.
Across the hallway is the formal dining room, featuring an original open fireplace, while the kitchen and breakfast room has an Aga cooker.
Completing the ground floor is a utility room and a cloakroom.
There are two separate staircases leading upstairs, where there are four double bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom, and a single bedroom, as well as a family bathroom.
Outside, a five-bar wooden gate opens onto a driveway, at the end of which is parking space for several vehicles.
To the rear of the property is a large garden, which is mostly laid to lawn with border flower beds and mature specimen trees, and backs onto the open countryside.
There is also a terraced area with space for dining, a greenhouse, a workshop space, and several storage areas.
The property is being sold by Stags for a guide price of £675,000.
