This fascinating period farmhouse has endless character and charm and is certainly worthy of its Grade II Listing. Believed to date back to the 16th Century, the house is believed to have formed part of Sir Francis Drake's estate. Traditionally built of local flintstone elevations under a thatched roof, Drakes Farm has been subject to a careful restoration programme over the years and is now found in good decorative order throughout. A cross passage hall with beamed ceiling and plank and muntin screen, has doors leading into the dining room with handsome cut stone fireplace and a double aspect. Opposite, a door leads into the spacious drawing room, which is arranged on two levels, providing sitting area with large inglenook fireplace with a Clearview wood burning stove and a further sitting area with French door leading out to the front of the house. An inner hall leads to the study and shower room and in turn through to the garden room with French door out into the garden. The kitchen/breakfast room is well fitted and has a range of hand painted cupboards with granite tops and includes a large island with five ring induction hob, built-in ovens and a microwave and a concealed refrigerator. There is a four oven AGA set within the original inglenook fireplace and there is plenty of room for a breakfast table beside a dresser style range of cupboards and shelves. A utility/rear entrance lies beyond the kitchen with the central heating boiler, a deep sink and range of useful cupboards. On the first floor the principal bedroom is particularly spacious with exposed Cruck beams, windows enjoying lovely southerly views and a fireplace with cut stone surround. The door in the bedroom leads down to a dressing room. Steps lead up to an inner landing with doors into a double bedroom with double aspect and adjoining bathroom. There are four further bedrooms found along the lower landing, one with good built in cupboards and three enjoying lovely easterly views across unspoilt farmland, the fourth faces south over the garden. There is a good size family bathroom with shower.
