Ground Floor Accommodation
As you drive through open Dartmoor you will find the gated driveway to the property passing the agricultural buildings en route to the farmhouse. You enter via the front door into an entrance vestibule where you can take boots and coats off. This opens up into the sizeable kitchen/dining area which is a beautiful room with exposed beans and stonework. To one end is the kitchen area with high quality polished granite work surfaces complete with ceramic ‘Belfast’ sink. The incorporated fridge, freezer and dishwasher are an added luxury whilst the dual control electric 'Aga' provides residual heat and cooking. A central island creates a focal point of the kitchen as well as a breakfast bar, a great place to serve up the family Sunday roast.
Ground Floor (2)
Double doors take you out to a patio area and garden which encourages you to make the most of the outdoor space during those dry and sunny days. The other end of the room has space for a large family dining table. This is a warm, cosy and inviting space to entertain friends and family. A real feature of the room is the stone chimney breast with granite lintel which houses a double sided multi-fuel burner.
Ground Floor (3)
To the other side of the burner is the living room with bi-fold doors again, encouraging you to open the room to extend it outside and also allowing the fresh, moorland air to pour in. There is plenty of space for your lounge furniture as well as, in the current owners' case, a grand piano! Doors from the living room and the kitchen take you into the hallway with stairs to the first floor as well as into the cleverly constructed oak conservatory which overlooks and provides access out to a garden area. This space can be used all year round and provides excellent additional living space. Also from the hallway a sizeable utility room with plumbing for a washing machine and further units including a sink is an added bonus. A back door and also a shower room with WC is incredibly handy if you have dogs.
As you rise up the bespoke wooden staircase you are welcomed to the first floor with the family bathroom in front of you. This modern bathroom is equipped with a sizeable oval bath with modern chrome taps and an impressive walk-in double shower with rainfall shower. You will also find the four bedrooms, all of which are double rooms with wooden flooring. The master bedroom boasts dual aspect views of both your land and the stunning Dartmoor horizon with a number of Tors in direct view. An ensuite bathroom has been exquisitely appointed with a white WC, basin and ‘P'-shaped bath with a shower over allowing you to relax and indulge in privacy.
The garden has been laid to lawn with mature hedging. The views from the garden are both far reaching and varied with an outlook over your land and Dartmoor. A patio area to the southern aspect provides an al-fresco dining opportunity.
A sizeable garage has space for four small cars or plenty of space for a car and workshop for your beloved cars and classic vehicles.
There are two sizeable modern agricultural buildings, one of which is a five bay former cattle shed with power and water connected whilst the other is a three bay former cattle shed, also with power and water connected. To the side of the smaller building is a further storage area for machinery or feed for the animals. Water is fed from a natural spring to the barns.
An older, stone built barn which has planning permission to be converted into a two bedroom holiday cottage (planning ref no. 12/02669/OTHBN/W42) would create a valuable income stream. This barn already has its own electrical supply and drainage.
The land is circa 20 acres and is gently sloping pasture, suitable for all types of livestock. The land is currently registered to benefit from Single Farm Payments which will be transferred to the new owner upon completion of the sale. The property also benefits from ‘Commoners' Rights’ on Dartmoor. Water is currently supplied to the land via a natural spring. A farmer is currently renting the land on an informal basis to graze their animals, for payment the farmer maintains the land and hedges.
This is the perfect opportunity for somebody who loves the great outdoors to run a smallholding with income potential as open moorland is just outside your driveway with endless walks and adventures to be had.
