Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Originally built as a cross passage house in the
1500’s, Old Yarde Farm has undergone complete
restoration over the past 20 years to create a
beautiful house. There are a wealth of historic
features throughout the property, most notably
exposed granite walls, slate roof and inglenook
fireplaces. Such characterful features have been
retained and combined with the conveniences of a modern home – underfloor heating, cavity walls, double glazing and good ceiling height.

From the entrance porch, a large and bright double height entrance hall leads to the beautiful dining room and drawing room which retain great character. There is a sitting room with doors opening onto the pretty gardens at the front of the property.

The kitchen overlooks the well maintained courtyard garden and is fitted with bespoke units, granite worktops, Neff appliances and a gas hob. There is a breakfast area and space for armchairs. Planning permission exists to extend the kitchen along its full length into the courtyard. Beyond the kitchen is a very useful boot room with direct access into the courtyard and to the stables beyond.

A door from the kitchen leads through the central study to the wonderfully bright Vale garden room which connects the main house to what could be used as a separate annexe. With granite walls and doors opening onto the pretty courtyard, there is also access to two further double bedrooms and shower room. It could be easily adapted for independent living.

The first floor is approached via an impressive
staircase leading to a gallery and two en suite
bedrooms, both of which have vaulted ceilings,
exposed and plenty of in-built storage. There is
also a further good-sized double bedroom and a
family bathroom.

Old Yarde Farm is peacefully located within the highly sought after Dartmoor National Park and surrounded by stunning countryside and dramatic moorland, between the small towns of Moretonhampstead and Chagford. It lies just half
a mile from the very popular and picturesque village of North Bovey with its church and renowned pub - The Ring of Bells. The diverse
habitats of the moor provide a stunning backdrop to a range of outdoor activities including walking, cycling and horse riding. Whilst benefiting from stunning rural views the house is in easy access to the A38 and the A30.

Both primary and secondary schools within the
catchment are excellent with the added benefit of a school bus facility providing a pick up and drop off service nearby. Primary catchment is
Moretonhampstead, secondary catchment is South Dartmoor community College, Ashburton. Alternatively there is an excellent choice of private education available in Exeter, Newton Abbot and Tavistock.

The small hilltop town of Moretonhampstead,
approximately 2½ miles away, provides most
everyday facilities including a church, primary school, cafes, pubs and restaurants, health
centre, dentist, excellent Sports Centre facilities
with gym, hospital, library, bank, Post Office and a good range of shops, including Family
butcher/Deli and Co-Op.

Chagford, approximately 3 miles away also offers a wide range of amenities, including church, primary school, Montessori nursery school, health and dental centre. There are also a wide range of shops, including a delicatessen, ironmongers, wine merchant, art galleries and a number of boutiques, plus a good selection of cafes, pubs and restaurants.

The award-winning Gidleigh Park Hotel is just over 4 miles away. Bovey Castle, which is overlooked by Old Yarde Farm, has a championship golf course, restaurant, brasserie and superb spa facilities. The cathedral city of Exeter is approximately 14½ miles away and has a number of excellent schools for boys and girls of all ages, a fine university, a broad range of supermarkets and excellent cultural and recreational facilities with many new restaurants, the Princesshay shopping development and a John Lewis.

Intercity high speed trains operate from Exeter St David’s to London (Paddington), the Midlands and the north of England. From Exeter Central trains operate via Salisbury to London (Waterloo). There are also a growing number of flights to UK and international destinations from Exeter airport.

The property is approached via an electric gate and has a wonderful sense of arrival with manicured open lawns and views across its own
land and beyond to Bovey Castle. The house is
accessed through a charming stone archway
and into the courtyard which is ideal for alfresco
dining. There is a large double garage, originally a roundhouse, with electric doors, as well as a paddock and pasture for horses.

The granite barn includes two stables, a hayloft and two secure storage rooms, one of which offers space for a gym/office. Subject to planning, this building could potentially be converted to create ancillary accommodation or holiday lets. To the front of the property there is a pretty, south-facing, cottage garden with original cobbled path leading to the front door.
