Description

Tree Farm is a fantastic mixed farm offering endless opportunities. The farm is approached through private gates to a substantial courtyard of traditional stone outbuildings and is centred around a highly attractive 5 bedroom farmhouse. The south facing farmhouse is located at the centre of the holding with unrivalled, far reaching views across the Mid Devon countryside to Dartmoor.

Lot 1 – farmhouse, range of traditional and modern farm buildings - 7.78 acres

Dating back to the 1870’s, the attractive farmhouse is constructed of local stone under a new (2014) slate roof. Whilst the farmhouse is in need of moderisation, well apportioned accommodation is provided over two floors incorporating many original and interesting architectural features. A path leads to the front door opening into the entrance hall. Door left to a large, sitting/reception room full of natural light with a south facing window. There is another sitting/reception room off the entrance hall which could also be utilised as a downstairs bedroom if required. Another door off the entrance hall leads through to a spacious dining room with an original fire place which although has not been used for a number of years, could easily be returned as a superb feature of the property. From the dining room are two doors, one leading to a rear utility with a back door (farm entrance) and the other, past a downstairs WC to the kitchen which is fitted with modern units, high level integral cooker and gas hob. To the rear of the kitchen is a useful pantry area.

On the first floor, there are five bedrooms arranged as a master bedroom, three further double bedrooms, a single bedroom and family bathroom.

There are well maintained, south facing private gardens to the front of the property which offer profusions of colour throughout the year from the trees, shrubs and bushes. In addition, there are a number of potential areas for outdoor
entertaining and dining to incorporate the superb views.
Farm buildings

To the rear of the farmhouse, there is an extensive range of traditional, stone outbuildings forming a large private courtyard. The majority of the buildings are two storey and offer significant potential for alternative uses (subject to planning) having always been used for agriculture, machinery storage and more general storage. Beyond the courtyard, there are a number of modern farm buildings, previously used for the housing of livestock and more recently machinery storage. The buildings range in age and condition but offer further potential to either cater for various farming enterprises or a potential change of use (stp).

Acreage: 7.78 Acres
