Tenure: Leasehold

SITUATION An historic Duchy leasehold detached farmhouse with a curtilage of 2.14 acres and direct moorland access, surrounded by the beautiful expanse of Dartmoor National Park.  

DESCRIPTION A desirable Duchy leasehold Dartmoor farmhouse which requires considerable refurbishment, situated at the end of a long unmade driveway surrounded by the sublime and peaceful open moorland within the National Park. We understand the property offers 2.14 acres (0.865 hectares) which is split into garden areas, courtyard and a field with direct moorland access.  

The farmhouse has a wonderful charm in an idyllic location which is a haven for cash buyers who want the beauty and lifestyle the moors offer. This historic building pre-dates the Duchy's records and is believed to be over 200 years old. There was originally an old dairy connected to the side elevation which is now a ruin and can be seen in the old black and white photograph. There are also several useful outbuildings which require updating, including a barn/garage and stable. The vendor has advised us that this outbuilding was built in the Second World War and has been used as a recording studio for famous rock bands including Status Quo. There is also the "old pony stables" which form part of the courtyard, and currently house a generator at one end, which was the only source of power before mains electricity was connected. There is a control box in the workshop area of the house where you could switch between both supplies. In addition the electricity cables in the house are in armoured casing to help prevent faults. The farmhouse also benefits from oil fired central heating from a modern Worcester Greenstar External 12/18 boiler, an Aga range cooker for cooking and hot water, open fireplaces, woodburning stove, private water with a PH balance filter from a bore hole and private cesspit. There is also a well which is located in the field just outside the boundary wall with there a right of access to for the owners of the property.  

The accommodation comprises sitting room, drawing room, inner hall, bathroom, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, porch and workshop. To the first floor are three bedrooms, mezzanine area and hayloft/store
