Outstanding Grade II listed farmhouse with guest cottage, 25.52 acres of lush pasture and woodland, nearly 4,000 sq ft of stone barns / outbuildings and all within a glorious rural setting.
Coombe Farm really does tick all the boxes. This beautifully handsome country house is complemented with a delightful guest cottage, two bedroom self contained annexe, stunning range of stone barns, swimming pool, gardens and 25.52 acres of glorious South Hams countryside. The stone built farmhouse, which is Grade II listed, dates we believe from the late 1700s. The windows are an impressive feature being mostly sash and in places featuring 4:12:4 panes. The interior is no less impressive, having been beautifully and sympathetically modernised, ensuring the 17th and 21st centuries live in perfect harmony. The wow feature is undoubtedly the full width open plan south facing kitchen / dining room at the rear of the house which extends to over 40'. This room is the hub of the house with a wood burning stove set in an inglenook fireplace and a kitchen fitted with Miele and Neff appliances including two dishwashers, two ovens, an induction hob, a combi microwave, warming drawer fridge / freezer and pantry cupboard. A door leads to the large terrace and gardens. There is a formal sitting room, again with a wood burning stove in an inglenook fireplace and a TV/ family room. Stairs descend to the converted cellars, which now provide a boot room / store room and a utility room with double shower and external access - very useful if returning from the beach with children and dogs!
The first floor is approached via a wide Georgian staircase which dog legs to a galleried landing and provides access to six double bedrooms, two with en suites and a further family bathroom.
The self contained annexe is arranged over two floors and with the opening of two internal doors, becomes an integral part of the main house at both ground and first level. The annexe offers a well fitted kitchen, sitting room with fireplace and two first floor double bedrooms and a shower room.
The Perch is a recently modernised three bedroom guest cottage with three bath/shower rooms, kitchen / dining room, sitting room, study and utility. It is beautifully presented and enjoys its own garden / terrace.
The outbuildings are an impressive feature of Coombe Farm, being stone built and very well preserved under slate roofs. In addition to the barns are two triple bay car ports and a range of store rooms. In total the outbuildings extend to over 3,700 sq ft. In 2004 the barns were granted permission to be converted into three units comprising a main dwelling and two holiday cottages. We suspect this permission has since lapsed but it can still be viewed at www.southhams.gov.uk under planning reference 32/1228/04.
Coombe Farm sits amongst 25.52 acres of its own loveliness. The south facing walled gardens are mostly lawned for ease of maintenance and feature a swimming pool with wrap around terrace, full width dining terrace off the kitchen and well stocked established beds. The fields offer lush pasture and sweeping valley views of the surrounding countryside.
