SITUATION An attached 6 bedroom farmhouse which has been improved since purchase offering stunning views towards Clearbrook and beyond within easy reach of the village of Yelverton and Plymouth city.


Yelverton has a useful selection of shops, including the Coop supermarket, delicatessen, hairdressers, garage and hotel. The ancient stannary town of Tavistock is around 6 miles to the north, with the historic naval port of Plymouth about 10 miles to the south. Yelverton has regular bus services to both Tavistock and Plymouth, where the national rail network provides connections to London and countless other destinations. Plymouth also has cross-channel ferry services to both France and Spain.

Sporting and Leisure facilities throughout the region are excellent – the Cornish beaches are within striking distance, and with Dartmoor National Park extending to over 300 square miles of stunning open countryside, there is plenty for the outdoor enthusiast to find. Sailing and other water sports are available within the Tamar and Tavy estuaries, and there are golf courses at Yelverton and Tavistock with numerous others throughout the region. There are also opportunities to fish by arrangement on the rivers Tamar, Tavy and Walkham.

DESCRIPTION A traditional attached farmhouse built we understand in the 1800's and later extended creating a sizeable living space for a large family and stunning conservatory with panoramic views towards the village of Clearbrook and open countryside within Dartmoor National Park. The gardens are a particular feature with further views and seating areas from where the surroundings can be enjoyed. The property is approached via a stone chipping driveway flanked with stables/tack room which are positioned on the lower boundary. The farmhouse benefits from some major improvements since purchase including a new roof. The home is warmed by an oil fired central heating Worcester boiler, Aga pellet fed stove in the conservatory, wood burning stove in the sitting room and PVCu double glazing. The spacious accommodation comprises entrance porch, reception hall, cloakroom, sitting room, study, kitchen/breakfast room, utility and large conservatory with stunning panoramic views across open moorland on the ground floor. To the first floor there is a master bedroom with en-suite, 5 further bedrooms and family bathroom. Outside, adjacent to the conservatory is a terrace with views over the courtyard garden and surrounding countryside. Steps lead down from the driveway to a lawned garden with mature shrub and tree borders. There are also two tack rooms and a loose box and there is a further parking area to the front of the outbuildings
