Stippadon Farm is located in the Dartmoor National Park between the towns of South Brent and Buckfastleigh. Both are thriving communities with a range of shops, primary schools and other local facilities. Totnes and Ivybridge are also accessible with both providing train stations and secondary schools. The property is also within easy reach of the A38 the main road between the cities of Plymouth and Exeter.


Stippadon farmhouse is a large property of about 2,740 sqft and is stone built with traditional slate hangings to the elevations under a slate roof, with a mixture of Georgian sash and casement windows, period features and is Grade 2 listed.


The house has 5 bedrooms, 3 reception rooms, 2 kitchens, 2 bathrooms and a utility room. The farmhouse is approached over a cobbled yard via a heavy oak door to a small hallway which gives access to both sides of the house. The door to the left leads into the western part of the house comprising a large farmhouse kitchen with wooden parquet flooring with an inglenook fireplace housing a Stanley range cooker. A further door leads to the dining room which has a slate floor and door to the outside terrace. Another door from the kitchen leads to a small back lobby, the utility room and WC, the back kitchen and the back stairs to the first floor.

The eastern half of the house consists of a sitting room with a large stone fireplace with a wood burning stove. A door then leads into another hallway and the main staircase to the first floor. The second sitting room is also accessed from this hallway and has a large fireplace with an oil fired stove. There is also access to the back kitchen which has a Sandyford cooker. The main staircase leads to a half landing where there is a bathroom and then proceeds to the main landing which leads to the 5 bedrooms and the back stairs where the second bathroom is located again on a half landing.


There is a good range of stone outbuildings configured in an L shape which are unlisted. These buildings have the potential for conversion (subject to relevant consents) with many existing door and window openings with brick quoins under a slate roof. They are currently used for storage although they have been previously used for agricultural and equestrian purposes. To the front of the buildings is a large concrete hard standing with a 3 bay timber framed open-fronted garage.


Stippadon Farm benefits from a very private and peaceful location owing to its long private drive and also to the agricultural land surrounding it. Included in the sale are 5 fields, as shown on the farm plan which are all laid to permanent pasture and currently let on a Grazing Licence to a local farmer, which expires on 29th September 2020. All the fields have access to a water supply and could be utilised for agricultural or equestrian purposes. The land extends to about 17.5 acres and is registered under Defra s Basic Payment Scheme.


Oil-fired central heating. Heating is via the Sandyford and Stanley ranges. Private spring water supply is connected to the properties and the land, with mains electricity and septic tank drainage.


The land is farmed subject to the existing Grazing Licence which expires 29th September 2020
