DESCRIPTION A stunning location and setting midway between Moretonhampstead and Bovey Tracey and whilst until recently the property has been lived in by a young family it is likely this is a project for future redevelopment, subject to planning.

Blackingstone Farm comprises a timber dwelling with some later additions and extensions. A workshop, garage and store are all now linked to the main dwelling which extends to some 2,750 sq ft. The property is believed to have been constructed in the 1920s and would make an interesting project and opportunity for those seeking a substantial dwelling set in its own land.
