A superb and versatile country smallholding with extremely spacious family house, detached holiday/letting cottage, agricultural barn, productive land with young trees and pasture. About 5.5 acres.
Budock Vean is an exceptionally attractive smallholding offering significant potential. There is a fine individual modern house providing spacious and well presented 6 bedroomed accommodation, which benefits from double glazing and central heating. The property benefits from a detached one-bedroomed holiday/letting cottage, known as ‘The Honey Pot’ within the grounds. There are various timber outbuildings, the principal agricultural building with open fronted storage and excellent workshop.
There are mature gardens surrounding the house which give way to a very gently sloping field, predominantly planted with young trees and also divided into flower, fruit and vegetable growing enclosures.
To conclude; Budock Vean is a property of great versatility and appeal, without agricultural occupancy restrictions. The components of a fine quality family house, additional cottage and enough land for smallholders or equestrian enthusiasts, amount to a highly attractive opportunity.
Budock Vean occupies a delightful gently sloping south facing position at Mill Cross, which is about 0.5 miles from Rattery. This favoured South Hams village is attractive and unspoilt with ancient parish church, noted local inn (The Church House) and lively village hall which hosts many interesting events. The surrounding countryside is very scenic with many opportunities for outdoor pursuits. Dartington is about 3 miles and is a world-renowned centre for performing arts and progressive education. The celebrated South Hams town of Totnes is about 5 miles and provides an interesting range of shops, restaurants, cafes, galleries, recreational and educational provision and a mainline station to London Paddington. Access to the A38 dual carriageway is about 2.5 miles from the property with the Dartmoor National Park and beautiful South Devon coast both within short motoring distance.
