COURT PRIOR FARMHOUSE Buyers looking for a large and comfortable village family home with extra accommodation would do well to start their search here. Court Prior Farmhouse is Grade II listed and it last changed hands over fifty years ago. It dates from the seventeenth century or earlier and it faces east, overlooking most of the village. The house has for some years been part of a holiday enterprise run by the owners - they have been living in two thirds of the house and letting the other third as a guest wing. For buyers looking for a home and income property in the glorious South Hams and within a short walk of the River Dart, this should fit the bill and it would also suit buyers with a dependant relative. Buyers wanting a big and charming old farmhouse all to themselves should find a straightforward job in converting the house back to one residence.

The larger section of the house has four reception rooms, five bedrooms and two bathrooms. The wing has two ensuite bedrooms. Outside, there is a pretty and colourful front garden, and steps outside the back door lead up to a second garden behind the house. Alongside the house, half of an open fronted barn provides garaging.
 

HOW TO GET THERE TQ9 7ES - Leave Totnes on the A381 Kingsbridge road. Towards the top of the hill turn left, signposted Ashprington and Cornworthy. Go through the villages of Ashprington and Tuckenhay (you can bypass Ashprington by turning right before reaching it) and continue to Cornworthy. On the outskirts of the village, go down the hill [Abbey Road], bear right and the property is on the right.
 

CORNWORTHY Cornworthy is a popular village close to the Dart and with a 15th century church, a pub and a parish hall. Part of the village, which has a mix of old and modern property, is in an area of outstanding natural beauty and close by are the remains of a 13th century Augustinian nunnery. Totnes, about five miles away, is known as an Elizabethan town but has much earlier origins with a castle, a wonderful position on the River Dart and a main line railway station. It has a well regarded community college, full range of shops, a weekly market, a wide choice of cultural facillites and a mainline railway station. 

SERVICES Mains electricity and drainage. Mains water will be connected to the main house - it's already connected to the guest wing. Central heating from an oil fired Grant boiler in the boiler room - underfloor heating in the guest wing and in the main house's dining room and in bedroom 1.
