Tenure: Freehold

A solid granite Grade II listed moorland farmhouse converted from a Devon Longhouse in Circa 1600. Adjacent to the house there is a large stone barn offering potential for conversion into additional accommodation subject to planning permission. There are also a number of outbuildings ideal for equestrian or agricultural pursuits.

The house itself offers spacious and versatile accommodation to include two large reception rooms, farmhouse kitchen with a granite lintel over the AGA, and laundry and utility rooms. There are 5 five bedrooms on the first floor, along with two bathrooms. The mature gardens are located to both the front and rear of the house and are mainly lawned along with a tennis court to the rear.

Features Include:
Attractive Granite Farmhouse
Offered with 10.1 Acres of land, woodland and stream
5 Bedrooms
2 Reception Rooms
Extensive Barns and Outbuildings
Walled Garden

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. In all the house and buildings are set in .65 of an acre.

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. This has gated access onto the lane and access into a second yard. Incorporated in the second yard is a 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 comprises 10 acres of woodland and rough grazing running either side of the River Bovey opposite the house. 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.

There is the potential to purchase a further 15.4 acres of pasture in two enclosures beside the house by separate negotiation.

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.
