Situation and Description Believed to have been built in 1860's and now Grade II listed, North Beer Farm is substantially constructed of stone with brick quoins and lintels under a slate roof. The spacious accommodation retains much character having period sash windows and with strip pine panel doors. Some of the rooms still have their original slate flagged floors and both the reception rooms now have log burning stoves. The Rayburn oil fired range in the spacious breakfast kitchen also provides domestic hot water and runs the part central heating.

The current owners have lived in the property for over 20 years and used to run a small cheese making operation from the premises. The farmhouse enjoys a peaceful rural location beside a quiet little lane. A magnificent copper beech tree is a feature of the pretty front garden with a larger and enclosed more formal garden on the other side of the yard on the rear. The detached cottage annex is located beside and to the rear of the main house being approached by its own driveway which has space for parking a number of cars.
