Situation - Goodstone is a 'hidden' rural hamlet located south of the A38 around a mile east of Ashburton and four miles from Newton Abbot. Communications are excellent with Plymouth, Exeter and Torbay around a thirty minute commute.
Whilst outside the boundary of Dartmoor National Park, the open moor at Cold East Cross is less than ten minutes drive away and offers breathtaking landscapes and walks including stunning Buckland Beacon. Everyday shops and facilities including primary and secondary schools are catered for within Ashburton with a wide choice of amenities including mainline railway station, on offer at the market town of Newton Abbot.

Description - Goodstone Farmhouse is a charming south facing farmhouse attractively refurbished to provide excellent, versatile accommodation. The house can easily be adapted to produce a separate annexe if desired. Whilst the house remains un-listed, much of the character remains in this historic home.

Accommodation - The house is approached from a terraced patio which leads around from the gravelled driveway. A rather grand portico entrance opens into the main hall with flagstone slate floor, off which are two reception rooms. A south facing sitting room with exposed floor boards and wood burning stove. A stunning, almost 30' kitchen-breakfast room with limestone tiled floor and two original farmhouse fireplaces - one with bread-oven and wood-burner, and one now with five oven electric AGA. There are two concealed staircases rising to the first floor. From the kitchen, the boot room with limestone floor, provides access to outside and also access into the office.
These principle rooms have south-facing sash windows overlooking the lovely landscaped gardens, which include large expanses of level lawn, and towards the picturesque countryside beyond.
Towards the rear of the hall, there is the utility room and a family room (currently used as a playroom) with a step up into Bedroom 4 which has significant potential to be altered to be used as a separate annexe. There is a door to the outside and an en suite bathroom.
The main staircase provides access to the first floor landing. Bedroom 1 with painted floor boards and a far reaching south facing view. Off the large landing is a shower room/wet room. Door to Bedroom 2, with working shutters. Bedroom 3 can be accessed from the stairs leading up from the kitchen or from Bedroom 2.
All in all, the proposed sale of Goodstone Farmhouse provides an excellent opportunity to acquire a spacious, individual residence of character with modern comforts in a very accessible rural setting.

Outside - A particular feature are the gardens and grounds which are south facing. The large paved patio leads down onto several level areas of lawn, edged by herbacious borders and a few areas of soft fruit cages. The large lower area of lawn is perfect as a children football pitch or croquet lawn. There are a number of fruit trees.
There are two driveways to either side of the house, the main gravelled drive provides parking for atleast 6-8 vehicles. The secondary drive provides bin storage and access to the rear concrete yard.

Services - Mains electricity, water, oil fired central heating, septic tank drainage
