Great Palstone Farmhouse is a substantial seven bedroom detached former farmhouse which has been extremely well-maintained by the current owner. The period property, which is notably unlisted, has many appealing character features, including high ceilings, cornicing and sash windows which are double glazed throughout.

On the ground floor there are four very spacious reception rooms comprising the study, dining room, sitting room and garden room. The frontaspect study and dining room have appealing features including a window seat, fitted cabinets and open fireplaces with decorative tiles. The sitting room has a large inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove and French doors which open out onto the south-facing courtyard. The impressively light and spacious garden room also has a set of sliding glass doors opening out to the courtyard, as well as three skylights, which provide plenty of natural light. The kitchen is at the heart of the ground floor with a gas Aga, kitchen island, electric hob and oven, extractor fan, refrigerator, freezer and dishwasher. Far reaching views to the top of Brent Hill in the distance can be admired from here. A laundry room, cloakroom and boot room complete the ground floor.

On the first floor there are four very spacious double bedrooms, each with a basin. The two front-aspect bedrooms enjoy truly fabulous views of the surrounding landscape and the countryside in the distance, as does one of the family bathrooms. There are two family bathrooms on the first floor.

Three further bedrooms are found on the second floor, one with an en suite bathroom. The second floor has a staircase which leads directly down to the back entrance, circumventing the main house, and therefore offers potential to be converted, subject to the relevant planning permissions, into ancillary accommodation. Large areas of storage are provided within the eaves of the second floor.

Great Palstone Farmhouse is located on the outskirts of the pretty village of South Brent, within boundaries of the Dartmoor National Park, which is renowned for its fine countryside and ample opportunity for a range of outdoor pursuits.
