Full description

Tenure: Freehold

DESCRIPTION Whites Farm is a semi-detached former farmhouse built to a traditional 16th century 'cross passage' plan. The property leaves potential for sympathetic improvement and offers generously proportioned five bedroom accommodation. Original character features include magnificent inglenook fireplaces, moulded beams, flagstone and early brick floors, interesting alcoves and period plank doors. This is an ideal family home, but would also adapt to dual family accommodation or character B&B if desired.
Outside is an extensive yard and parking area together with an historic former linhay barn that would have originally been thatched.
The delightful rambling country garden comprises lawn areas, meandering pathways and a productive orchard.
NOTE: There is an adjacent former garden nursery with buildings and land amounting to about two acres, available by separate negotiation. Please ask for details. 

SITUATION Whites Farm is situated in the scattered village of Dean Prior, close to the A38 Devon Expressway. On the southern fringes of the Dartmoor National Park, this beautiful area offers many opportunities for outdoor pursuits, with the Rivers Dart and Avon also nearby. The small town of Buckfastleigh is about 1 mile and provides a range of shops, health centre and primary education. The larger market towns of Ashburton and Totnes are about 4 and 7 miles respectively, both with further shops, secondary schools and the latter providing a mainline station to London Paddington. Access to the A38 is very nearby at about 0.5 miles.
