Extremely attractive and unspoilt period farmhouse with outbuildings, mature gardens and pasture field. About 6 acres.
Higher Torr Farm is a traditional attached period farmhouse, attractively enlarged in Victorian times, but with much earlier origins. The accommodation, which leaves scope for improvement, is bright and very generously proportioned and provides 4/5 bedrooms, large living room and a handsome kitchen/dining room with Aga. There is also a useful ground floor office/studio with separate entrance.
Outside; The house is bordered on three sides by a mature landscaped garden with a wealth of shrubs, wild flowers and seating areas. There is a beautiful dilapidated former granary and former stone piggeries. The field lies to the south and west of the house and comprises excellent gently sloping pasture enjoying unspoilt rural views.
Higher Torr Farm is the principal element of an historic former farmstead, enjoying good seclusion and rural outlook, with the comfort of neighbouring properties. The surrounding South Hams countryside is delightfully unspoilt and offers excellent opportunities for outdoor pursuits. The village of East Allington is about 2 miles which provides a parish church, primary school and noted local inn. The market town of Kingsbridge is about 4 miles and has excellent shopping facilities, cafes, restaurants, superb secondary school and leisure facilities, particularly on the lovely River Avon estuary. Celebrated Salcombe is about 10 miles and a similar distance takes you to Totnes with a main line station to London Paddington.
