Full Details

FULL DESCRIPTION Enjoying an exceptional elevated rural location with panoramic rural views, this outstanding 5 bedroom detached farmhouse is offered for sale collectively with 2 further properties within its grounds which provide an impressive income from holiday lettings. All 3 dwellings are maintained and presented to a high standard and viewing is essential to fully appreciate all that they offer. Ample gardens, parking, garage, barn providing stabling for 6 horses and potential to take over the additional surrounding land on rent amounting to around 15 acres.

ABOUT SLACKS FARM This wonderfully located traditional detached farmhouse and barn conversion enjoys a stunning elevated rural location with far reaching views over the surrounding countryside. It is offered for sale complete with 2 further dwellings which are operated as a successful holiday letting business generating an impressive income for the owners.

The main farmhouse is a traditional stone built cottage which has been extended into the converted barn at the rear. Renovation works to this building were carried out by our clients circa 2004. Since then the property has undergone more recent modernisation works to ensure that the many traditional features are complimented by quality contemporary fixtures and fittings.

The property is entered through a spacious entrance hall which has a utility room to the side. There is also an impressive dining kitchen with large island unit and cosy sitting room with flagged floor and log burning stove in the original house. A door from the kitchen leads into the former barn which forms a fantastic living room with amazing views to each elevation, most notably through the arched barn window. There is also a second entrance hall providing access to the garden and 2 further rooms currently used as a sitting room and home office.

On the upper floor there is a galleried landing area over the lounge leading to the master bedroom which has its own en-suite bathroom, 4 further double bedrooms, bathroom and shower room. All three bathrooms have recently been refitted to an excellent modern standard.

There are ample gardens, parking and a modern barn providing stabling for 6 horses. Our client also rents an additional amount of surrounding land from the Dartmouth Estate which may also be available to rent by the new owners.

Across the yard from the house are the two semi-detached properties currently used as holiday lets. We anticipate that buyers may look to purchase these either as a business opportunity or possibly as a joint family purchase. These properties are believed to date back to the late 18th century and are grade II listed. Our client converted them from a formerly derelict barn and cottage circa 2009-2014.

The cottages provide a healthy annual gross income in excess of £70,000 per annum and are marketed by Sykes Holiday Cottages. Bookings are already in place into 2020, meaning that this is a ready to go business opportunity. Whilst it isn't our client's intention to sell the cottages separately at this time they may consider selling the main farmhouse and retaining the cottages.
