An historic, now derelict, Grade II* Listed farmhouse with traditional Shippon with potential (STP), modern farm buildings, pasture & woodland totalling 25.82 acres in all. Additional land available (up to 116 acres in all).
Addislade Farm is situated within Dartmoor National Park and lies about two miles south west of the small market town of Buckfastleigh from which there is access onto the A38. The A38 runs between Plymouth and Exeter and provides communications to these main centres and beyond.

Dartmoor National Park provides a wide array of recreational opportunities on the doorstep with fantastic walking in Hembury Woods, riding and cycling on the open moor and kayaking and fishing on the River Dart. Amenities, professional services
and a selection of individual shops, galleries and delis can be found in the nearby towns of Buckfastleigh, South Brent and Ashburton, and many of the regions finest beaches are within easy driving distance.

Addislade Farm comes to the market for the first time in almost 60 years, having been acquired by the vendors from the Yarde Buller Estate in the early 1960s. Addislade Farm actually pre-dates the Domesday Book, and is believed to have been established as a smallholding in the 12th century.

The farmhouse is Grade II* Listed, and is believed to date in parts to Medieval times, with additional construction in the late 16th century. It is built of roughcast stone and rubble and is notable for its scantle roof (a traditional method of roofing involving
traditional peg & lime techniques), which has been the subject of an extensive restoration project in the last decade. The farmhouse itself is derelict, with no mains services connected and with part of the upper flooring missing. Please take extreme
care when viewing. The property does retain many original features including ancient oak beams and trusses, cobbles and fireplaces. Subject to a programme of renovation and modernisation, the farmhouse has the potential to become a fantastic historic family home.

Across the courtyard is a Grade II Listed barn known as The Shippon, which has potential (STP) for ancillary or alternative uses, as well as a range of modern farm buildings suitable for a mixed farming system.

The land at Addislade is a mix of gently sloping and sloping pasture suitable for mowing and grazing, as well as some arable cropping.
