Brief Description

Main Description

Victoria Dairy Farm is an attractive, detached farmhouse residence standing on the outskirts of Payhembury, surrounded by farmland with far-reaching country views and includes formal gardens, yard, outbuildings and a field, amounting to approximately 4.26 acres in all.

The house has been in the same family for many years and provides a very comfortable family home with light and spacious, adaptable accommodation previously used as the base for a successful dairy farm together with a bed and breakfast business. The attached 3 bedroom annexe gives separate accommodation to the main house for letting if required, or easily incorporated back into one large home.

There are a total of six bedrooms, an en-suite bathroom and two shower rooms, all on the first floor.

On the ground floor is a fitted kitchen, lovely family/dining room leading into a conservatory, cloakroom and sitting room together with another kitchen and living room in the annexe.

Wonderful views are enjoyed from the PVC double-glazed windows over the lovely surrounding gardens, land and countryside for miles around.

There is an extensive concrete yard with a very useful range of outbuildings suitable for storage, animals or even conversion into holiday letting units subject to any necessary planning consents.

Although in a lovely rural location, the village with its many amenities is within walking distance.
