A superb Grade II Listed detached farmhouse with approximately 1.1 acres.
Believed to date from the 16th century and formerly a granite Devon longhouse, Aller Farm offers over 3,700 sq. ft. of beautifully presented flexible accommodation. It has been sensitively modernised to combine the amenities of contemporary living including solar panels which generate an annual income, excellent broadband speed and a home office, making it ideal for home working. Complimenting these are a wealth of retained period features including original fireplaces and exposed beams.
There are three reception rooms on the ground floor: a spacious dining room; an extensive drawing room featuring two large granite fireplaces with original bread ovens; plus a fabulous bespoke green oak garden room with a high vaulted ceiling and French doors to the rear garden. There is also a well-proportioned front aspect office/study. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a large kitchen with a separate neighbouring utility/boot room, both offering a range of fitted units. The kitchen features an exposed granite chimney, ideal for an AGA-type stove, a Belfast sink, large central island with a breakfast bar, plus a handmade Norfolk pamments floor. The utility/boot room has an island, double Belfast sink, space for utilities and quarry tiled flooring.
On the first floor, the property offers a large principal bedroom with window seating, a walk-in wardrobe and a spacious en suite bathroom with a stylish freestanding cast iron bath. There are three further bedrooms on the first floor, one with a contemporary en suite shower room, and the others serviced by a family bathroom. The loft on the top floor has been totally converted into open living accommodation comprising a seating area, kitchen area, bedroom area and a large contemporary en suite shower room. This space provides excellent potential for use as a guest suite, as self-contained accommodation for an au pair, teenager, dependant or as office/study space for working from home.
This property has 1.1 acres of land.
The property is approached through bespoke double five-bar gates over a private side driveway providing private parking and giving access to a substantial granite barn comprising a triple carport, workshop, store, stable and fully-insulated wine store. To the rear, a courtyard garden features an area of level lawn with mature borders and a large paved terrace; perfect for entertaining. Across the lane is a further garden area with lovely views, a pond, vegetable and fruit beds and a greenhouse. There is also an enclosed paddock with direct access to the moor. Further land may be available by separate negotiation.
Aller Farm is peacefully located within the highly sought after Dartmoor National Park and is surrounded by stunning countryside and dramatic moorland. It is just half a mile from North Bovey, an exceptionally pretty village with a church and renowned pub, The Ring of Bells. The diverse habitats of the moor provide a stunning backdrop to a range of outdoor activities including walking, cycling and riding. Whilst benefiting from excellent rural views, the house is within easy access to the A38, A30 and Exeter with all its cultural, recreational and educational facilities, just 15 miles away.
