Ideal for commuting and leisure pursuits in Plymouth City.
A secluded farmhouse on the edge of Dartmoor with a converted detached barn ideal for annex/rental income, surrounded by approximately 10 acres of land, 7 stables and further outbuildings. The property is not listed and is dated circa 16C initially as a cow herder's long house with early Victorian extensions. The house, barn and stables are sited around a sizeable courtyard with attractive lawned gardens, orchard and superb uninterrupted views of Devonshire fields and Dartmoor. The property benefits from direct access onto open moorland and extensive rides out, further outdoor pursuits and leisure activity. The property is also ideally located at the end of a 300 m leafy drive, so in turn feels perfectly remote, but is however a short journey from amenities in Yelverton or Plymouth, on good roads. We have been advised by the owner that the broadband speed is 15 – 30mb. Starlight broadband is also available, which is currently used by tenants, at 400mb plus.
The main detached farm house is approximately 3,000 sq ft and offers five bedrooms with en-suites to both the principal and guest bedrooms. The principal bedroom also enjoys elevated views over the grounds and Dartmoor beyond. The downstairs comprises reception/dining room, sitting room, kitchen/dining room, recently added glass room with again distant views, study/home office, cloakroom and utility room. The sitting room is in the oldest part of the house and has a beautiful fireplace with wood burning stove and original slate floor. The home is further warmed with oil fired central heating and underfloor heating in the study/home office and sitting room areas. The utility room is next to a side entrance hall which is ideal for removing boots and jackets while also being connected to a tack room with a further WC and door to the courtyard.
The architect designed detached Old Barn, which has been an income for the owners, was converted in the 1980's and has been tenanted for long periods of time. There is also a private courtyard garden for the barn and ample parking. The main living space is on the first floor and extends to almost 33ft with a kitchen area and living space plus a large corner window allowing views over the landscape. On the ground floor is the entrance hall with steps to the two double bedrooms, bathroom, shower room/utility, cloakroom and a study/home office.
The stables, outbuildings and connected fields consist of a large yard with 6 stables, tack room with WC (as mentioned in the farm house description) workshop/hobby room, cart linhay, tractor shed and 45' hay barn. There is also an isolation stable in the orchard together with a three sty piggery. The courtyard is accessed via a 5 bar gate and a separate gate leads into the stable yard. The approximately 10 acres of 7 pasture fields and an orchard are all enclosed by Devon Banks and have water by either trough or natural source.
The gardens are mainly to the rear of the main farm house and offer lawns and attractive plants and trees. A level lawned section, which was named ‘the wedding lawn' by the current owners, is ideal for croquet or tennis and entertaining friends and family.
To the side of the house is a herb garden with vegetable patch and green house, plus compost boxes. The neighbouring moors are also ideal for walking out and enjoying the wildlife and sense of space.
