Tom Bedford from Savills Exeter said: “Pitt Farm is an outstanding property in every respect. The seventeenth century farmhouse is  immaculately presented, with incredible character and style, and its elevated position affords it some of the best views of the Exe Valley I have ever seen.

“It is wrapped in acres of the most beautiful gardens and grounds, offering total privacy, while still being only seven miles from Exeter. During their tenure, the owners have stylishly converted a number of barns to create a fantastic lifestyle opportunity which generates a healthy income – yet another facet of this rare opportunity.”
