The Leighon Estate is situated in the most magical and secluded Dartmoor Valley with its diverse countryside of beautiful formal specimen gardens, extensive mature woodland, lakes and moorland. The estate is entered off a very quiet country lane close to the Becka Brook. The beautiful drive meanders through mature woodland gardens with specimen trees. The Becka Brook follows one side of the drive whilst passing an ornamental pond on the other and the gardens between are filled with large banks of world class rhododendrons. It continues on past the Lodge Cottage and up to the house itself. The drive to the house slopes up to a large parking area where are you are immediately struck by the stunning views over the farm with Hound Tor above.

Leighon House is a very attractive and substantial period Manor farm house in the most incredible setting with far reaching Dartmoor views. The house is entered through a double front door into a small entrance lobby and larger entrance hall beyond. The house is extremely well laid out for both large-scale entertaining but also family life with a number of spacious reception rooms with high ceilings.

Off the hall is the well-proportioned sitting room with larger drawing room beyond and dining room across the hall linking through to the open plan kitchen and breakfast room along with a large larder. There is also a utility room, downstairs loo and cloak area. There is a back hall with further stair case and study.

From the main hall, stairs rise up to a spacious first floor landing off which are the well laid out bedroom accommodation. The principal bedroom has lovely views over the gardens and a large ensuite bathroom. In addition there are seven further bedrooms and three bathrooms.

Whilst one of the main features of Leighon House are the breath-taking views over Dartmoor, there are beautiful formal gardens around the house with well stocked herbaceous borders, immaculate lawns, beautiful mature trees and large rhododendrons in addition to the woodland rhododendron gardens that line the drive.
Behind the house is a sheltered walled garden with lovely borders and a productive vegetable garden.

To the side of the house are an extensive range of traditional stone built farm buildings which have huge potential for a wide range of uses. Of particular note is the beautiful cobbled courtyard off which are the former tack rooms and staff annex which could easily be reconfigured as guest or staff accommodation. Opposite is a further beautiful stone barn with 4 fine traditional loose boxes along with loft space above.

The adjacent barn has a wonderful full length open plan room open to the eaves with a beautiful wooden floor. In addition is a former cart shed and a double garage. This whole area is a hugely exciting project for a new owner.

The pretty period Lodge is situated off the private drive in a delightful secluded position. It is currently let on an assured short hold tenancy to a tenant who also helps on the estate. The Lodge has a sitting room, kitchen, utility, WC and 2 bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor along with a private garden to the rear.

The land is wonderfully diverse with the Becka Brook running through the stunning valley along with a series of magical lakes making it a wonderful area for walks and riding. The land would also lends itself to a family shoot if desired.

There is excellent grazing across the whole farm of which are made up of 37 acres of pasture and 413 acres of moorland. There are approximately 118 acres of woodland much of which is also grazed. In addition, there are 194.9 acres of 1/4 owned grazing moorland over Hound Tor. There are phenomenal views from this land. The grazing is currently let to two separate farmers on annual grazing licences.
