12 Jun Farmhouse, barns, outbuildings and 10 acres of Devon
The Newton Abbot branch of Rendells, the long-established firm of chartered surveyors, auctioneers, valuers, land and estate agents, is pleased to offer for sale a detached farmhouse with a range of barns and outbuildings, set in 10 acres of undulating Devon countryside near Ashburton.
Tor Farm is a double fronted detached house dating from the late 19th Century, with accommodation arranged over three floors. Inside are generously sized rooms. On the ground floor is a conservatory with a Georgian reinforced glass roof, a reception hall, sitting room and dining room – each with a wood burner inset a fireplace, kitchen and separate breakfast room, rear entrance porch with adjacent boiler room and utility, and a cloakroom.
The first floor landing splits to the front and rear. To the front are two large double bedrooms, each measuring more than 15’x12’. The rear landing leads to a third double bedroom, WC and bathroom fitted with a corner bath as well as a walk-in shower, and on the second floor are two attic rooms.
The house is approached by a long private driveway and is surrounded by its own land of approximately 10 acres, mainly laid to paddock and pasture. Within the grounds is a range of barns and outbuildings.
Attached to the house is an open fronted garage, and there are two further detached garages. The former cattle building is made of stone with a galvanised roof and opens to the milking parlour with feeders and drinkers, stalls and a drain channel. The general purpose/stock building measures 60’x45’ and has gates to both the front and rear. There is an open fronted covered store area as well as a timber framed implement store, and a stable which has two stone and two galvanised walls.
Also in the grounds is a two-storey stone barn with a slate roof, former fireplace intact and a cobble ground floor currently divided into stalls. Planning consent was granted in 1994 for the barn to be converted for residential use – this has now lapsed, but there is potential for conversion, subject to new planning consent.
Charles Morgan, sales negotiator at Rendells in Newton Abbot, said: “Tor Farm is fabulously located – it sits in a peaceful, unspoilt rural setting and has spectacular views over open countryside, but is still only a couple of miles from the A38 Devon Expressway and the facilities in Ashburton. The farm has plenty of potential – the house itself has spacious living accommodation, which would benefit from a little updating, but there is also plenty of scope for the land and outbuildings, particularly since consent has previously been granted (although now lapsed) for conversion of the stone barn. We are receiving interest from a wide range of buyers.”
