Situation - Middle Rocombe Farm occupies an outstanding position in a most beautiful and peaceful valley, close to the stunning South Devon coastline and South West Coastal path. Accessible to excellent amenities, the pretty villages of Combeinteignhead and Stokeinteignhead are close by with the latter boasting an OFSTED Outstanding Primary School, 14th Century Church, village shop and public house. The Church House Inn is approximately 1 mile away. Marks & Spencer and Sainsbury are located approximately 3 miles away on the edge of Torquay.
The coastal area of Torbay has a good range of everyday services and conveniences in addition to its beautiful Marina and waterside attractions. The city of Exeter provides a wide range of retail, cultural and educational facilities. The mainline station of Newton Abbot offers a direct service to London Paddington in less than 3 hours and the A38 and its onward connections to the north of the country via the M5 motorway is within easy reach.
The well regarded Grammar Schools of Torquay Boys, Torquay Girls and Churston Grammar School which is a mixed school, are all within easy reach. The independent Stover School is also within short travelling distance.

Description - Middle Rocombe Farmhouse is a substantial property mainly built from stone with presumably some cob elevations, under a slate roof. The sale offers the opportunity for the house to be renovated and improved by the successful purchasers.

The attached farmhouse sits within a traditional Devon courtyard with other dwellings and provides a peaceful communal lifestyle in the sought after location of Stokeinteignhead, South Devon.
The current owners of the farmhouse will be converting a nearby barn into their new home and studio. They hope to continue the creative history of this site which has previously supported an organic Devon Farm, Rocombe Farm Organic Ice Cream business and The Art Farm Project.

Accommodation - The layout of the accommodation can be seen on the floor plans located to the rear of these details. The main entrance to the property leads through an inner lobby into the main staircase hall, with a sitting room with working fireplace to the side. There is a door to a cloakroom and door to open plan kitchen/living room. There is a range of fitted kitchen units with a coal fired Aga. The kitchen provides access to the garden, or to an internal utility room, a study and into a third reception room which has a further flight of stairs to the first floor. The main staircase rises to the landing with doors to the two principle double bedrooms to the front, a door to a useful box room/store, door to bedroom 5 and a family bathroom. There is a connecting door which could be used to divide the farmhouse into two; which in turn leads to a shower room and two further double bedrooms.
With the potential improvements to the house, it is very likely that the house will be re-configured to make some of the bedrooms en suite, with the potential for a separate annexe to the side of the house.

Outside - The farmhouse faces onto a shared courtyard which has provided parking in the past. As part of the development of the courtyard buildings, it will be landscaped into a communal area for all the residences to enjoy. This will improve the attractiveness to the front of the property. Parking for the farmhouse will be via an existing gateway below the farmhouse and will enable the occupiers to create a new private entrance. The large garden extends to the side and to the rear of the house and is planted with a mixture of herbaceous borders and trees. There is a stream fed pond at the rear of the garden.

Additional Land - The vendors own some additional land which adjoins the property and could therefore be made available in addition to the land being offered for sale with the farmhouse.
There is also an adjoining timber stable block and approx 0.39 of an acre of land which is now under offer, referred to as Lot 2 and edged blue on the plan within these particulars.

Services - The existing drainage, electricity and water supplies will need to be updated when the nearby barns are converted. The sellers are organising for new connections to be made, including connections to a new sewerage treatment plant. The purchaser of Middle Rocombe Farmhouse will be expected to pay a share of the infrastructure costs, the details of which are available from the selling agents.
