Dreamy Devon farmhouse with lake for sale

Slade farmhouse is a Grade II listed late 17th century plastered cob farmhouse with a slate roof. The property has been modernised to provide a charming and comfortable family home with many period features including lovely fireplaces, ceiling beams and casement windows. In the kitchen the AGA sits in the original fireplace with a bread oven and a stone dating the house to 1692.

The accommodation comprises entrance hall, drawing room, sitting room, kitchen/dining room, utility room, study, office and four bedrooms, one en suite with shower room and another bathroom. There is also a charming separate Grade II listed two bedroom barn conversion which could provide a separate income.

Outside the land comes to just over 30 acres and makes for a beautiful little estate. The house is approached up a tree-lined driveway with wide, mown grass verges through an area of park-like pasture with vistas down to the lake and wetland area to the left. Behind the house is an area of woodland with oak, ash, cherry, and other broad leaved trees and a gently sloping field of around 15.5 acres provides accessible grazing plus fantastic views of the surrounding countryside and over towards Dartmoor.
