Parminters has been in the same family ownership for approximately 120 years and the current seller was born and grew up on the farm.
So conveniently located within a short drive of the excellent amenities of Braunton and those of Barnstaple, the regional centre for North Devon, this opportunity offers country living without being remote and with famous surfing beaches within approximately 6 miles.
Primary education is available at Marwood, which was judged as outstanding at the last Ofsted Inspection. Similarly, Springfield Nursery, which is in the next hamlet is highly sought after and provides a spacious outdoor playground with an undercover area, gazebo, pets corner and a vegetable garden. The Nursery has a baby unit for children aged 3 months to rising 2 years, a spacious rising 2- 3 years room and the Springfield Barn for pre-school children.
Under Planning Application number 63763 granted 9th November 2017 there is planning permission to convert two stone barns.
Barn 1 has planning permission for a one bedroom conversion to provide to the ground floor, open plan kitchen/living/dining room and family bathroom, with a bedroom to the first floor. There is an outside store located to the rear of the property.
Barn 2 has permission for a 3 bedroom conversion to provide open plan kitchen/dining room, lounge and bedroom to the ground floor, whilst to the first floor there are two further bedrooms (one with en-suite) and a family bathroom. Once again, there is a store located to the rear of the barn, accessed externally.
Situated between the two barns (as can be seen on the Landscaping Plan) there is current planning under Planning Application number 66063, for the erection of a large garage/workshop on the site of the original farmhouse.
All of the barns must be developed using traditional materials such as stone. timber, cob and natural slate, as specified in the Proposed Materials Schedule for each application.
