An immaculate DETACHED FORMER FARMHOUSE with 5 BEDROOMS providing a comfortable and versatile home with scope for an ANNEX or RENTAL INCOME. Situated on the edge of Dartmoor the gardens extend to approximately .68 ACRES and surround the property including a greenhouse, GARAGE/WORKSHOP.
SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION An immaculate detached former farmhouse positioned within the Dartmoor National Park and close to open moorland. We understand the house was originally built as a dairy farm in the early 1900s and then later extended in the 1970's providing a comfortable and versatile home with scope for an annex or rental income. The current owners have created a light and airy living space which has superb views out to the gardens and surrounding countryside. The gardens en-compass the house and enjoy a south westerly aspect at the rear. The gardens are a particular feature and extend to plot size of approximately 0.68 of an acre with stunning shrubs and flowering plants interspersed with lawns, fruit trees, seating areas and a wildlife pond. There is also a productive fruit and vegetable garden which is fenced and contains a greenhouse. To the front is a gated driveway with ample parking for several cars and a sizeable garage/workshop. There is an area of front garden with a seating terrace, enclosed and bounded by a high Devon Bank ideal for breakfast and the morning sun. The balanced accommodation offers notable character typical of the age and comprises of porch, reception/dining room, sitting room, snug, kitchen breakfast room, side lobby, utility/boot room, study and a shower room. There are two staircases to the first floor, one opens to a landing and a master bedroom suite which offers en-suite bathroom and a dressing room. The dressing room has been in the past a kitchen and therefore this area lends itself to being an independent annex or rental. A further staircase opens to a large landing with four good size bedrooms and a family bathroom. There is a loft space which could command a sublime elevated view and create further living or bedroom space subject to planning consent. The property has oil fired central heating providing hot water; there are two oil tanks, one is for the Aga which produces additional hot water. The home is also warmed with modern double glazed windows, wood burning stove and open fireplace and has the benefit of original slate floors, as well as quarry tiles and polished wood floors. There is a septic tank in the rear garden, mains water and electricity.
