This attractive four bedroom farmhouse is situated in a picturesque position on the outskirts of the popular village of Payhembury. Although an idyllic rural retreat, it is easily accessible to city life as the village is only a short walk away.
Monkton Park Farm comprises 16.8 acres of pasture, several outbuildings with optional planning permission and a beautiful detached farmhouse with origins dating back centuries.
Over time, the farm has been enriched with two large extensions that have helped create a spacious family home.
The property has undergone a considerable program of restoration and refurbishment and now stands in beautiful order, where contemporary features sympathetically blend with its traditional character. This is particularly evident in the glorious oak and glass veranda with its roof lantern. Period features include beamed ceilings, exposed stone walls and an impressive inglenook fireplace in the living room.
On the first floor there are four bedrooms, where the master has a dressing room with fitted wardrobes, an en-suite shower room and fabulous countryside views.
Without a doubt, one of the main features of Monkton Park Farm is its beautiful setting which offers great privacy and is a haven for wildlife. The gardens are laid mainly to lawn and dotted with well established trees and shrubs. There is also an orchard with several mature apple trees, a pond and a more formal garden to the north.
To the east there are old farm buildings which have obtained planning permission for a two bedroom detached residential dwelling. These include an old pigsty and attached traditional barns, as well as a modern block built garage/workshop which could be connected to form a U-shaped barn conversion.
