SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION A stylish and historic Grade II listed Devon longhouse dating back to the 1300's offering independent annexe, rental and holiday let potential, alongside approximately 5 acres with stables and sand school. The vendors have spent a considerable sum on extensive improvement and refurbishment since purchasing a few years ago.

This attractive detached home is beautifully presented and comprises of three connected character dwellings. The 'Threshing Barn', which is considered the main house, where the current owners reside, 'The Cottage' and 'The Dairy Barn' which are currently rented out for a combined income of approximately £1,400 per calendar month. All of the properties can be entered internally with connecting doors, making the home also ideal for a large family who want to live together but independently. The property also has a detached studio/bedroom with en-suite facilities which could also offer ancillary accommodation and /or a rentable income and is located in the pretty gardens.

These beautiful gardens are a particular feature and enjoy a south facing aspect with landscaped seating areas flanked by flower beds, lawns and colourful shrubs. The garden has several useful outbuildings including a utility/garden store, two piggeries used for storage and potting plants, and a sizeable garage with connected workshop/store, which also could be converted with relevant planning consent, adjacent to a large hard standing.

There are two main parking areas which can accommodate many vehicles, laid with stone chippings, servicing both the main residence, and then in turn at the back of the property, 'The Cottage' and 'The Dairy Barn'. Adjacent to the side elevation is the field which belongs to the property, visible from the main bedroom making it particularly easy to see the current horses plus the occasional local deer and other wildlife. The land extends to approximately 5 acres and consists of one main field, which is gently sloping, with gates into a courtyard with loose boxes, tack room and sand school. The accommodation is warmed with central heating, oak framed double glazed windows and wood burning stove.

The location is ideal for commuting to Plympton, Plymouth City and on to the main A38 road to Exeter, and is on the edge of Dartmoor National Park for all related lifestyle activities.
