SITUATION
Pollardscombe Farm is situated within a quiet and tranquil location right in the heart of the south hams countryside. The renowned rural village of Slapton is located approximately one mile south of the farmstead being one of the most desirable coastal villages in the south-west benefiting from two renowned inns, and a well-stocked general store. Further afield, approximately 8 miles west, lies the thriving town of Kingsbridge, which contains a variety of shops and restaurants, a well sought after school, a leisure centre and local hospital. Whilst the town of Totnes located 12 miles inland provides the necessary transport links in the form of railway and motorway.

GENERAL DESCRIPTION
Extending in total to approximately 85 acres, Pollardscombe Farm is a well-equipped, ring fenced property standing in excellent order. The property, south facing, benefits from a recently refurbished farmhouse with virtually all rooms enjoying views of the surrounding countryside. The farmhouse contains three reception rooms in the form of a sitting room, a dining room and study room. The spacious family kitchen breakfast room boasts a five oven total control Aga. From the entrance hall a solid oak staircase leads to five well-proportioned bedrooms all containing en-suite facilities. Immediately adjoining the farmhouse lies one of the self-contained residential cottages, known as the Old Milking Parlour Cottage. This property has two bedrooms, whilst the other (Owlacombe) is a detached cottage and provides one bedroom. Pollardscombe Farm comprises a range of both modern general purpose farm buildings together with the more traditional stone buildings which lend themselves to a variety of uses. The farmland comprises a good block of gently sloping agricultural land currently either in an arable rotation or down to permanent grassland.

THE FARMHOUSE
Having recently been restored by the current owner the farmhouse is the centre piece of this wonderfully positioned property. The attractively designed gravel drive leads to a well proportioned house, which benefits from five en-suite bedrooms, three reception rooms, a kitchen breakfast room and utility room. Both the ground floor and first floor enjoys underfloor heating, whilst all the windows are double glazed with beautiful views across the South Hams countryside. To the front of the farmhouse lies an immaculate lawned garden, whilst to the rear of the property a large gravelled area provides ample parking facilities.
