Old Brook Farm is a pretty Dartmoor farm offering a combination of exceptional farmhouse plus an extensive range of traditional barns and a separate cottage. The house is built principally of stone with part-slate elevation under a slate roof and is full of character.

Period features include exposed beams, multi-sash windows, slate floors and impressive fireplaces; the house also has all the necessary modern conveniences.

Accommodation is arranged over three floors and comprises: entrance hall, drawing room, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, boot room, and on the first floor are the master bedroom suite and three further bedrooms plus a family bathroom; the second floor has two further bedrooms and a shower room. Next to the main house is a heated granite barn currently used as a hobbies room.

The granary cottage is in good condition and offers one bedroom, a sitting room and a kitchen/dining room. The property also has a charming courtyard more or less encompassed by a range of outbuildings which provide extensive storage and stabling together with a tack room, feed room, workshop and car port.

The gardens lie immediately beside the property providing lovely patio and lawned areas, while the land lies mostly to the north west and comes to around 25 acres of pasture and hay meadows. All the paddocks are well-drained – one has a large timber barn and there is also a large outdoor riding arena.

The River Mardle runs through part of the land.

Old Brook Farm is on the south eastern fringes of the Dartmoor National Park and occupies a wonderfully peaceful position in the Mardle Valley just two miles from Buckfastleigh and close to Holne and Ashburton. Dartmoor is renowned for its wonderful riding and walking and the house is well placed for easy access to sailing, boating and fishing on the South Devon Coast.

The guide price is £1.8m. For further information please contact Knight Frank on 01392 848 823 or visit www.knightfrank.co.uk.
