A fascinating 15th Century cross passage farmhouse of immense character and charm, Listed Grade II, with stables and outbuildings, surrounded by its own land in a highly convenient setting on the lower slopes of the Blackdown Hills. In all about 14.502 acres.

Higher Ruggin is a fine example of a 15th Century cross passage hall house and is certainly worthy of its Listing, Grade II, with fine examples of inglenook fireplaces, flagstone floors and pretty leaded light windows which have all been carefully restored. The house has highly adaptable reception space with two delightful sitting rooms, both having leaded light windows and fireplaces and together with a characterful kitchen / dining room, which was created from an adjoining barn. It provides overall excellent family accommodation. A series of rooms leading off the inner hall provide a good study, an office and hobbies room and have been used as the home office. A ground floor bedroom has an en suite wet room with Fired Earth fittings, which can also serve as a downstairs cloakroom for the main house. The upstairs bedrooms lead off a lovely light galleried landing with principal bedroom having a well-fitted en suite wet room with Fired Earth fittings, further family bathroom and wet room also well designed and fitted with Fired Earth granite and travertine basins and tiles. A pretty former stone built stable and adjoining cart shed provides an ideal opportunity to convert to provide ancillary accommodation subject to all necessary planning and Listed Building consents.
