Offering sublime PANORAMIC VIEWS over miles of Devonshire countryside, a sizeable and incredibly light 5 BEDROOM FAMILY HOUSE which also has a SEPARATE 1 BEDROOM DETACHED DWELLING 'The Cottage' which would make an ideal annex or rental income. Grounds of approximately 0.70 Acres.

SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION Offering sublime panoramic views over miles of Devonshire countryside, a sizeable and incredibly light five bedroom family house which also has a separate detached dwelling 'The Cottage' which would make an ideal annex or rental income.

The property is located away from the main thoroughfare on a private road which turns off the open moor of Dartmoor National Park. The house is ideal for commuting to and from Plymouth city and is a short distance from the amenities in Yelverton. A long sweeping drive with ample off road parking means the property is nicely hidden from view and is notably private. The detached dwelling, which is currently used for occasional guests and family, is positioned close to the entrance gates and also has a further parking area and surrounding garden. The main house gardens are mainly laid to lawn with a paved patio which is ideal for entertaining and is nestled next to the doors from the main living areas and partly under a balcony which is accessed from the first floor landing/sun lounge. These gardens have a south westerly aspect and arguably the most panoramic vista in this area. We understand the property was built in the 1970s, benefiting from excellent storage cupboards, large windows and airy rooms and lends itself to a large family or buyers who require a more contemporary living space.

The accommodation comprises porch, reception lobby, hall, living room, family room, kitchen/dining room, pantry, utility/boot room, cloakroom and three walk-in store cupboards. To the first floor is a landing area and sun lounge with connection doors onto the balcony, master bedroom, en-suite shower room and ample wardrobes and walk-in wardrobes, guest bedroom with en-suite shower room, three double bedrooms, family bathroom, laundry room and home office. The home benefits from mains gas central heating and PVCu double glazed windows.

The Cottage/potential annex is essentially a modest bungalow which was built originally to be a double garage and the accommodation comprises porch, hall, sitting room, kitchen, bathroom and a double bedroom.
