The beautiful stone built Manor House is a Grade II* Listed House steeped in history and set in a small hamlet bordered by farmland on the fringes of Dartmoor National Park in south Devon with easy access to the A38. This wonderful home comes with 3 Holiday Barn conversions all in approx. 1 acre of grounds.
The south facing wing (known as the Farmhouse) forms the major part of the original Manor that has its earliest origins in the 17th Century. It has been recently extensively and sympathetically restored by the current owners and in conjunction with the conservation officers the house retains many original features to include open faced stone walling, vaulted ceilings, exposed beams, Victorian fireplaces and solid wooden flooring.
The main accommodation that includes the adjoining Cider Barn Annex, is suitable for comfortable family living and well laid out. It consists of a stunning vaulted ceiling, open plan kitchen/living room with an electric Aga, Butler sink, bespoke oak worktops and central island unit.
The large sitting room with a recessed fireplace which has a feature stone arch and houses a wood burner is approached by a bespoke staircase. This wonderful room also has solid oak flooring, deep recessed window seating and window shutters with views over the pretty gardens. From here is a large hallway to the front door and another door leading to the gardens.
From the kitchen, up some steps and a small galleried landing, there are the 3 bedrooms, one ensuite and a family bathroom with a cast iron slipper bath. In addition in the adjoining Cider Barn Annex there is scope on the ground floor for a large home office, or games room cum playroom.
Outside there are south facing gardens laid mainly to lawn with raised terraces and stone walling that overlook the adjacent farmland. By the main entrance and bordering the small lane there is ample off road parking. The rear garden is accessed via a side driveway and leads onto the lawned garden with post and rail fencing. Duck Pens: A useful utility area for the holiday cottages with washing machines, storage space and WC.
