Introduction - The property is in an elevated position in the rolling south Devon countryside just 3 miles from the town of Totnes. This peaceful location offers outstanding panoramic views over the surrounding countryside including Dartmoor to the west. The farmhouse is a substantial property built on a hillside and set over a number of floors. This interesting building is currently configured as a three bedroom owner's property, two cottages let for self-catering holidays and two apartments also used for self-catering holidays. As the property has full residential permission, a new owner could continue with the current successful operation or reconfigure the layout of this property to suit their needs.

There are 4 holiday cottages in a separate building, an extensive range of outbuildings and lakes. The property is available in two lots with either 13.9 acres or 41 acres.

Situation - The medieval market town of Totnes (3.5 miles) has a fabulous range of small shops, cafes, restaurants, galleries, excellent schools and a main-line station to London Paddington. The diverse South Devon coastline and stunning Dartmoor National Park are both within easy travelling distance. The River Dart offers opportunities for sailing and other sports.

Nearby attractions include the popular round robin steam train, river boat and bus trip visiting Paignton, Dartmouth and Totnes, Agatha Christie's holiday home Greenway now a National Trust property and Paignton Zoo.

Owner's Accommodation - On the top floor of the main house, this has a tucked away feel with a private entrance. A path from the parking area leads through the garden to a conservatory with tiled floor (door off to boiler room) and on into the living room. This stunning room is triple aspect with far reaching views and a vaulted ceiling. Steps up to the triple aspect kitchen with wooden floor, walk-in-larder, oil fired AGA and range of cupboards with granite worktops and butler sink.

The master bedroom and en-suite bathroom have stunning views across the valley. The second bedroom is triple aspect, again with far-reaching views and is next to the well-appointed family bathroom. A spiral staircase from the living room leads to a mezzanine level used as an office/study. Off this is bedroom 3 with WC and sink.

From the living room there is a lockable interconnecting door to a 2 bedroom cottage below. This provides options for re-organising the layout.

Also part of the main house but currently used for self-catering holidays are the following cottages and apartments. A new owner may wish to re-configure these to suit their needs.
