Description

A detached cross-passage former farmhouse in an exceptional and convenient location, just 10 miles from Exeter. A most attractive Grade II listed property, under a part slate and part thatched roof. Sitting in approximately 1 ½ acres of delightful gardens providing a truly special setting, with a stream on the far boundary and lovely views over the garden to an approximately 5 ½ acre paddock which is approached by crossing the stream or by a separate access. There is also a small copse. The property is beautifully presented with the well-proportioned rooms offering much charm and character with the potential of creating separate living space or annexe if desired.

Situation

On the edge of the popular village of Christow, which lies in the heart of the Teign Valley, just on the eastern boundary of Dartmoor National Park. Christow has a strong community with Doctors surgery, Shop/Post Office, Village Store, well regarded public house, Primary School, Parish Church and Community Centre.

Directions

From Exeter take the B3212 Exeter to Moretonhampstead Road. At Dunsford, bear left on to the B3193 towards Christow. At the T junction turn left on to the Teign Valley Road. Ignore signposts to Christow until you reach a small crossroads signed to Ashton on the left (where there is a small coloured sign to the Manor Inn). Turn right here, up a lane; ½ a mile up the hill you come to a small group of thatched houses. Combe Farm is the second one on the right with the name 'Combe Farm' on the wall by the front door. The entrance is a narrow drive just beyond the house. It is easiest to reverse in or you can leave your car in the lay-by just beyond the signpost, not opposite the property.
