About this property
A superb country home quietly situated in a small rural hamlet with panoramic views across Dartmoor and the South Hams and set within established grounds extending to approx. 2.7 acres.
The property is approached via a long drive serving this small hamlet located on the southern foothills of the Dartmoor National Park. The location of this beautiful rural property is remarkable, yet convenient to Ivybridge town centre with its wide range of amenities including a busy high street, leisure centre, primary schools, and an excellent community college. The A38 Devon Expressway offers comfortable commuting for both Plymouth and Exeter and there is a mainline rail station on the outskirts of the town.
Idyllically situated within the Dartmoor National Park, this splendid, detached farmhouse offers a unique lifestyle opportunity which offers the best of both worlds, while only being a short distance from amenities and good transport links. The farmhouse is strategically positioned to take full advantage of the views which surround the property with most of the accommodation, including a substantial garden room, enjoying an open aspect over the gardens and across the moor. In our client's ownership the property has been extended and refurbished to an exacting standard and offers spacious and adaptable family accommodation which would lend itself to a large family or multi-generational living. On the ground floor there is a free-flowing layout with a warm and welcoming sitting room/family room at the centre of the house with a fireplace and slate hearth. The kitchen/breakfast room has been recently upgraded and offers ample space for family dining and entertaining. The kitchen area has been fitted with a range of modern units incorporating an electric AGA, integrated appliances, and quartz work surfaces. From the kitchen a door opens into a substantial garden room which is a wonderful light space to relax whilst enjoying the beautiful views. In recent years, our clients have extended the property to the side of the house to provide a dual aspect hobbies room, study, and cloakroom/WC. This area has a private access from the parking area which works well if used for business purposes. Also on the ground floor is a well-equipped utility and boot room area with an external door leading out to the courtyard area. On the first floor the accommodation is again generous in proportion with 3 double bedrooms, all enjoying a fine aspect, and a family bathroom. On the second floor there are a further 2 double bedrooms with en-suite shower rooms and each bedroom commanding superb views across the surrounding moorland.
The property is approached via a 0.7-mile-long drive, owned by the property and the maintenance of the road is shared with the other residents in the hamlet. The entrance drive to the property passes under a 7' wide stone arch with the driveway sweeping around the farmhouse to a large courtyard area providing ample parking and garaging facilities. There is a triple garage with electric up and over doors, 1 sizeable stores and a loft room above the garage which would serve well as a gym or games room. The gardens are a particular feature of the property and have been thoughtfully landscaped with an array of mature plantings, and a wildlife pond. To one side there is a paddock with a greenhouse, vegetable plots and a chicken run. A stream forms part of the southern boundary.
Mains electricity & water supply. Private drainage. Oil fired central heating system, plus some electric under floor heated.
