OUTSIDE
Immediately behind the house there is a domestic courtyard of outbuildings with a detached workshop and studio/garden room. The studio/garden room is a bright and spacious room with a wood burning stove and doors opening onto the garden and terrace. This room would also lend itself for therapeutic or artistic pursuits. Attached to the side of the house is a substantial stone barn which offers the potential for conversion into additional accommodation STPP.

There is an enclosed garden to the west of the house which is largely walled and accommodates a hard tennis court, lawned area, ornamental trees and shrubs and views over neighbouring countryside.
Double barn doors lead to a yard with further outbuildings. The yard is formed around a range of granite pig pens/barns and an enclosed Dutch Barn with stabling beneath. This has gated access onto the lane and access into the second yard. Incorporated in the second yard is a generous concrete turning apron which runs along the front of a six bay open fronted fodder shed and an inner yard with a traditional eight bay open fronted linhay. In addition there is an adjoining large timber frame covered barn with high solid timber walls.

The Land
The land in total stretches to approximately 26 acres and comprises 10 acres of woodland and rough grazing running either side of the River Bovey opposite the house and 15 acres of pasture in two enclosures beside the house. The pasture fields beside the house are divided into a larger field which rises up gently to form a wonderful vantage point from which there are wonderful views over the fringes of Dartmoor. The combination of this and the smaller paddock provide convenient grazing immediately adjacent to the house and buildings. The land and bluebell wood along the banks of the River form a delightful contrast with the boulder strewn valley bottom with an attractive mixture of native trees broken by the fast flowing River Bovey providing a very special habitat and setting for the property.

SERVICES Private water and drainage. Mains electricity and oil-fired central heating.

FIXTURES & FITTINGS Only those mentioned in this brochure are included in the sale. All others such as carpets, curtains, light fittings, mirrors, garden ornaments etc are specifically excluded but may be made available by separate negotiation.
