Christopher’s are delighted to present to market this large portion of a former farmhouse offering almost 3000 sq ft and bursting to be renovated to create a fabulous period home in a rural yet convenient position between Lee Mill and Yealmpton.


Having been in the same family ownership for some 40 years, it has already been subjected to a substantial extension back in 1991. Sitting within large gardens and grounds Choakford Farm House offers flexible accommodation currently comprising entrance hall, boot room, utility, downstairs cloakroom, snug, dining room/parlour and farmhouse kitchen. In addition, this property showcases an impressive sitting room boasting a fireplace housed within an attractive exposed stone wall. Upstairs are six double bedrooms, some with built in storage and a family bathroom.
Choakford Farm House is approached from the lane through an open gateway to a shared driveway (one other property). This leads to a private parking and turning area with space for a number of vehicles. Adjacent to the parking area is a substantial outbuilding with an open fronted garage , lockable workshop and storage room. The principle garden lies to the rear and invites you to a number of areas of level lawn interspersed by mature trees and shrubs. Part of the garden has previously been appointed as a paddock. There are plenty of spots tucked all around this garden to sit and enjoy this charming space including a patio with a feature stone well. The garden also houses several sheds and a summerhouse. A 5-bar gate at the rear of the garden gives further access to the lane.
Properties as unique and truly special as this rarely come to market and would offer a tremendous renovation opportunity to create a super family home and allow a new generation to start their own memories. Choakford Farm House is offered with no onward chain.
