Devon gem offers privacy and good land

Anyone looking for a slice of history, privacy and good farmland could be tempted by Bradstone Manor Farm, a new West Country offering from Savills.

The farm, mentioned in the Domesday Survey of 1066, is near Tavistock in Devon and has a Grade II* listed stone four-bedroom manor house dating from the 16th century and a Grade I* listed gatehouse.

There is also a courtyard of traditional stone barns including reception barn and games barn, a stable courtyard with 12 loose boxes and a two-bedroom stable flat plus a pair of cottages.

The well-drained, fine silty and fine loamy soil runs to 469 acres in a ring fence; most is part of an arable rotation. There is also an area of water meadow and woodland. Modern farm buildings include workshop, general store and large timber-framed and panelled building with five loose boxes, tack room and office plus manège.

With the residential element approaching half the overall £4.75m guide price, George Alder of Savills believed the buyer was likely to be someone relocating to the South West but interested in farming the land either themselves or through a third party. (Savills 01392 455 747)
