Originally built as a cross passage house in the 1500s, Old Yarde Farm has undergone complete restoration over the past 20 years to create a beautiful house. There are a wealth of historic features throughout the property, most notably exposed granite walls, slate roof and inglenook fireplaces. Such characterful features have been retained and combined with the conveniences of a modern home – underfloor heating, cavity walls, double glazing and good ceiling height. From the entrance porch, a large and bright double height entrance hall leads to the beautiful dining room and drawing room which retain great character. There is a sitting room with doors opening onto the pretty gardens at the front of the property. The kitchen overlooks the well maintained courtyard garden and is fitted with bespoke units, granite worktops, Neff appliances and a gas hob. There is a breakfast area and space for armchairs. Planning permission exists to extend the kitchen along its full length into the courtyard. Beyond the kitchen is a very useful boot room with direct access into the courtyard and to the stables beyond. A door from the kitchen leads through the central study to the wonderfully bright Vale garden room which connects the main house to what could be used as a separate annexe. With granite walls and doors opening onto the pretty courtyard, there is also access to two further double bedrooms and shower room. It could be easily adapted for independent living. The first floor is approached via an impressive staircase leading to a gallery and two en suite bedrooms, both of which have vaulted ceilings, exposed and plenty of in-built storage. There is also a further good-sized double bedroom and a family bathroom. The property is approached via an electric gate and has a wonderful sense of arrival with manicured open lawns and views across its own land and beyond to Bovey Castle. The house is accessed through a charming stone archway and into the courtyard which is ideal for alfresco dining. There is a large double garage, originally a roundhouse, with electric doors, as well as a paddock and pasture for horses. The granite barn includes two stables, a hayloft and two secure storage rooms, one of which offers space for a gym/office. Subject to planning, this building could potentially be converted to create ancillary accommodation or holiday lets. To the front of the property there is a pretty, south-facing, cottage garden with original cobbled path leading to the front door.
