Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The moment you drive into Penson Farm you feel that this is a special place. Situated above its own valley with land stretching down to the River Avon the views are truly beautiful. The current owner has extended the house and has cleverly combined a state of the art kitchen and media room with the old Grade II listed farmhouse, full of beams and little nooks and crannies, including a superb inglenook fireplace in the main sitting room with an interesting circular smoke room next to it. Large beams above windows and fireplaces and
scissor beams upstairs all add to the character of the delightful property. The mix of new and old flows beautifully and creates a fabulous family home.

The property is being sold with a 3 bedroom stone barn with planning permission to renovate for ancillary accommodation or holiday let and a large American style barn housing a gym to one corner with an office on the first floor. Between the American barn and stone barn is an orangery with planning permission to build an indoor swimming
pool complex. There is also a ménage (not used recently).

The grounds of lawns and flower beds have been carefully planted with more than 100 camellias and there are swathes of azaleas and rhododendrons. The rest of the 40 acres is fenced pasture suitable for horses or sheep. An area of woodland adjoins the river where there is a half share of 70 yards of fishing.

Diptford is a village that has a strong local community, primary school, village tennis court, playing field and is surrounded by unspoilt rolling Devonshire countryside. The nearby market town of Totnes has a mainline railway station giving direct connections to London Paddington and Waterloo with easy connection to St Pancras for
Eurostar. There is also excellent access to the A38 Devon Expressway, linking Plymouth and Exeter where it joins the M5. Totnes boasts a market as well as a good selection of shops, supermarkets, restaurants and inns.
