    About this property

    • Believed to date back to around the mid1700's / early 1800's with a later Georgian addition, Aller Farm is a stunning family home with far reaching views over the surrounding countryside. Its principally Georgian style façade and pretty sash windows really set the tone for what is to come and typical of its period offers generous proportions inside with light rooms and high ceilings. The spacious entrance hall leads to a beautiful, dual aspect sitting room which faces south and west and features an inset dual fuel burning stove for those cosy winter evenings. Opposite the entrance hall is a second, south facing sitting room with inset wood burner. The generous kitchen / dining room is clearly the heart of the home with a central island and oil fired Aga. The kitchen is well equipped with a range of units, a built-in oven and microwave and space for a dishwasher. There is also a utility / boot room and a study off the kitchen as well as a ground floor cloakroom / shower room.

      The main staircase rises from the entrance hall to a split landing on the first floor. To the south side is the fabulous principal bedroom with built in wardrobes, feature fireplace and en suite bathroom with roll top bath and a further double bedroom with en suite shower room. To the other side of the landing there are two double bedrooms and a family bathroom. There is also a secondary staircase leading down to the kitchen. Stairs rise again to two attic rooms which are currently used for storage but could be incorporated into the living accommodation if required.

      Gardens and Grounds
      Approached via a long, private drive which is shared with two other properties, the gardens and grounds at Aller Farm total 6.34 acres and are truly delightful. There is south facing walled garden which is largely laid to lawn and provides the perfect spot for alfresco dining. Beyond the formal garden are two paddocks, one with timber stables and the other with a number of fruit trees and both of which have incredible far reaching views over the rolling countryside and to East Dartmoor. Aller Farm enjoys the benefit of direct access onto Shaptor Woods which offers excellent walks.

      Outbuildings include a double garage, two stores and a timber stable block with two stables and a tack room.
