Stunning farmhouse set in glorious gardens, with about 4.2 acres, stable block, artist's studio and double garage.
Rivendale Farm is a little bit of gorgeousness in the South Hams countryside. The house has been lovingly updated by the current owners and their creative design is evident at every turn. A superb living and open plan kitchen is at the heart of the house, with a unique glass wall separating the lobby and wide staircase as it rises to the first floor. The sitting area has French doors leading to the terrace and gardens and the kitchen is beautifully crafted with a range of units, a large island, wood and granite worktops and an oil fired Sandyford Range with additional induction hob and oven. Further appliances include a dishwasher and a freezer. The living room has a lovely Inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove and stone hearth and French doors again lead to the garden. The partly vaulted principal bedroom is beautifully appointed and offers lovely far reaching views. The en suite bathroom / dressing room is fitted with wardrobe cupboards, a roll top bath and a walk in shower. There are a further two double bedrooms, both with lovely views and a family bathroom and from the landing wooden stairs rise to the converted loft, which makes an ideal children's room or play den and there is a closed store room to one end.
Outside, the gardens are beautifully landscaped and well established, ensuring ease of maintenance. The lawns are interspersed with an abundance of shrub and flower beds and a beautifully designed stream fed pond. The remainder of the grounds are grassed with fenced paddock, orchard, chicken run, kitchen garden and fruit cage. There is an all-weather manege and a stable yard. The stables are currently used as a studio, work shop and store room. The double garage has a pitched first floor above where a wonderful artist's studio has been created with kitchenette, studio and sitting room.
