Creek Farm occupies a wonderful counrtyside position around a mile east of the town of Ashburton and the A38 which brings Plymouth and Exter within comfortable commuting distance. There are lovely walks on the doorstep within the high hedged minor lanes and the wide open spaces of Dartmoor are just a short drive away. Ashburton is a vibrant town with an active community and excellent shops and facilities including fish deli, bakery, butchers, greengrocers, pharmacy, newsagent and post office. There are local primary and secondary schools and a health centre.

The property has lots of possibilities (subject to consents) and is currently arranged as a two-storey period farmhouse with adjoining single-storey annexe and sizeable 'hall' building. It has been home to the school of Rainbow Tai Chi for Health Centre. The current owner has had plans drawn up to create a four bedroom bungalow on the site of the hall building but this has not been submitted for planning.

Some general updating of the house and annexe is required but the whole site is bristling with potential to have a home with income, or for an extended family. There are views towards Dartmoor from the rear of the property.

The gardens and grounds have a total plot size of around 0.7 of an acre (according to the Ordnance Survey plan) and are level with lawned areas, shrubs, many trees, an outdoor swimming pool, open summerhouse/gazebo and sheds/stores.

We are advised by the seller of the following:
Mains electricity. Mains water. Private drainage. Oil fired heating. Large number of Solar roof panels on the front of the farmhouse.

Travelling south on the A38 towards Plymouth, take the Linhay exit at Ashburton. At the end of the slip road turn left and then take the second left into Pitley Hill Road (unmarked). Proceed up this lane for 0.8 of a mile and the entrance will be seen on the left.
