Wallon is a 16th century farmhouse which has been subsequently often updated, and the property now offers modern comforts for a family looking for a peaceful situation in Devon, in the Dartmoor National Park.
Reception rooms make the most of the views: the sitting room has French doors out to the walled garden and the kitchen/breakfast room comes with a wonderful fireplace with a wood burner, and doors out to a covered veranda which also opens onto the walled garden. The drawing room and dining room are both charming, and the library is an excellent place to relax. The house comes with a secondary kitchen and a secondary sitting room. Upstairs are nine bedrooms and a number of family bathrooms, as well as a fine playroom.

Outside are a range of traditional cob and stone barns and farm buildings, as well as a former threshing barn. The gardens are divided into different areas including the walled gardens with lawns and borders, a courtyard area and a selection of small, fenced paddocks as well as the old orchard which has been recently planted fruit trees including apple, pear and crab apple. To the east is a beautiful, unspoiled valley bisected by a tributary of the River Teign. Further pasture paddocks slope down towards the wetlands and on the opposite side of the valley is an extensive area of plantation made up mostly of birch and oak. The entire area is a haven for wildlife and the owner is self-sufficient in timber. There is a family shoot with potential for expansion. The land comes to 108 acres.
The property is located in Wallon, just inside the eastern boundary of the Dartmoor National Park. The nearest villages are Drewsteington, just over two miles away, which has a pub, church and shop, and Dunsford. There are further amenities to be found at Oakehampton, which is around ten miles.
The guide price is £1,750,000. For further information please contact Strutt & Parker on 01392 215 631 or visit www.struttandparker.com.
