Rainsbury House occupies a lovely elevated setting on the edge of the hamlet of Upton, being within Exmoor National Park and set within easy reach of Dulverton, thought by many to be the heart of Exmoor.
Dulverton has a good range of day to day amenities, including convenience stores, butchers and restaurants.
The area is well-known for its country sporting pursuits including hunting, pheasant shooting and fishing. Trout can be caught on the property's land on the banks of the River Haddeo.
The house dates back a couple of hundred years, bearing many of the hallmarks reminiscent of a house of this period.
Over recent years the property has been the subject of a thorough modernisation programme, and now provides well-planned and appointed accommodation with good reception space, lovely farmhouse kitchen and good-size bedrooms.
In addition to the main house, there is a substantial adjacent barn, offering four-bedroom ancillary accommodation, designed with the main reception room and kitchen on the first/garden floor in order to enjoy the views.
Also, there is a single-storey letting cottage, providing three-bedroom accommodation.
A good range of outbuildings, including a variety of stables, makes Rainsbury House an ideal place for those wishing to keep horses, and with gently sloping pasture it is an ideal property on which to keep sheep.
