A traditional farmstead in the foothills of Dartmoor, set in about 18 acres, incorporating one of the area's most iconic visitor attractions, The Miniature Pony Centre.
The property comprises a detached 4 bedroomed farmhouse with a selection of modern and traditional buildings that have been sensitively adapted and converted to accommodate a thriving lifestyle business opportunity. The existing buildings include retail space, a restaurant and cafeteria, a 2 bedroom staff flat and office facilities. In addition, the modern barns are currently set up to include a children's play area, stock yard and stabling.
Surrounded by gently sloping grounds, enjoying far reaching views over the surrounding area, the farmhouse, which is not Listed, enjoys its own private gardens and independent access to the visitor attraction. In recent years, the building has been modernised by the present owners to create a comfortable family home, with accommodation over two floors.
In the heart of the house is the kitchen which is a good size with ample space for a table and chairs and a four oven Aga providing a warm comfortable atmosphere. Both the sitting room and kitchen open through into the south facing conservatory. On the first floor, there are four double bedrooms, one of which is en suite and two bathrooms.
The traditional outbuildings have been cleverly adapted to provide business space for a visitor attraction based upon miniature ponies. Public and staff access to the buildings is totally separate from the house, providing a useful buffer. The barns could be reused for horses or agriculture subject to planning permission.
The house is situated, together with the buildings, within about 18 acres of paddocks and lakes. The Miniature Pony Centre is completely separate from the private house which has its own drive access. At present the house is an island of tranquillity surrounded by a commercial business and its privacy can either be enhanced or reduced according to the wishes of the owners.
While the existing planning permission is for a visitor attraction, the buildings could be reconverted to agricultural or equestrian use subject to planning permission. Alternatively, future conversion to holiday accommodation may also be possible, subject to the necessary consents.
