Pillmouth Farmhouse is a Grade II Listed family home that was built in the 1600’s and was once the home of General Monk, whom the parish of Monkleigh is named after. The house sits in an elevated position on the edge of the River Torridge and has many of the original period features including the sundial on the roof, inglenook fireplaces and exposed beams.
The accommodation comprises of an entrance hall with a sweeping staircase to the upper floors, a sitting room with an inglenook fireplace, a dining room with a stone fireplace and a wood burning stove, a countryside style kitchen/breakfast room with an Aga, a snug and a piano room. A utility room with access to the gardens, a walk in larder and cloakroom complete the ground floor.
Upstairs, on the first floor, are five bedrooms, the family bathroom and a separate cloakroom. The dual aspect master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom and bedroom two has an ensuite shower room. There are two further bedrooms on the second floor, one with an ensuite WC.
Pillmouth Farmhouse has a lawned south facing garden to the front of the house with a path leading to the main entrance. A cobbled courtyard sits to the west of the house with access to the piano room and the outbuildings. Gardens to the rear of the house are mainly laid to lawn with many seating areas enjoying views over the River Torridge and established trees and shrubs.
Lying to the north of Pillmouth Framhouse is the paddock which extends to approximately 1.1 acres. This paddock provides useful grazing and abuts the foreshore and the slipway. This slipway is accessed off the main driveway and provides a hardcore path leading directly to the water.
Pillmouth has the benefit of a number of outbuildings accessed from the courtyard and currently used for storage. A barn opposite the house has planning permission for a five bedroom dwelling.
