Fabulous Grade II listed farmhouse beautifully positioned within its own valley in a delightful and convenient location on the edge of Dartmoor National Park.

Accessed via a long sweeping drive, the property is nestled in a beautiful location surrounded by its own land with far reaching views over the valley.
The flexible living accommodation, much improved by the current owners, offers an excellent, versatile space for both single family and multi-generational living. The bright, farmhouse kitchen is clearly the heart of the home with a wide range of timber, bespoke wall and base units, large island and Everhot cooker as well as lovely traditional window seat. The generous utility/boot room, flooded with light from full-length windows, offers a range of units and useful storage as well as direct access to the garden, perfect for returning from long, muddy walks.
There are two very spacious reception rooms, each offering much character with period features as well as a good sized, double aspect study/third reception room. The cosy dining room with exposed beams provides a charming entertaining space with large inglenook fireplace with woodburner and stairs giving access to the first floor. The beautiful cross passage is such a charming feature of the house, with stunning front door and antique screening leading to the very spacious, double aspect sitting room.
