Winsor Farm is an important and historic former farm centred upon a beautiful period house of Georgian and earlier origins. The well-presented six bedroomed accommodation retains a wealth of character features including five fireplaces, flagstone floors, exposed beams and a farmhouse kitchen with Aga and a beautiful Victorian range. There is a self-contained one bedroomed annex ideal for holiday or permanent letting, for additional income.
Outside is extensive mature gardens and a well-equipped equestrian facility with indoor stabling, tack and feed rooms and a superb sand school/ménage. The fields are in good order, well fenced and lead down to a small area of woodland.
To conclude; Winsor Farm is a property of significance with a handsome and versatile house, good facilities and useful amount of land, all easily accessible to main road and rail links.
Winsor Farm occupies an attractive elevated position in a tiny hamlet, amidst unspoilt rolling
countryside. This is fine walking and riding country with numerous footpaths, bridlepaths and tracks in the vicinity. There are good sailing opportunities on the nearby River Yealm. The historic village of Yealmpton is approximately 1½ miles away and offers a parish church, shops, two pubs and a thriving primary school. Plymouth is about 8 miles and provides a fantastic range of amenities, including top-rate educational facilities. The junction of the A38 dual carriageway is within a short and convenient distance.
