SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION A spacious character property situated on Dartmoor, but not off the beaten track, offering sublime views over the surrounding rugged landscape, a private south-facing garden and ample off-road parking.
This extended semi-detached period house benefits from notable character, well-presented living spaces, which are light and airy, with accommodation over three storeys, including a loft room which has scope to be a third bedroom. We understand the property was built in the late Victorian period around the 1880s and was the home for the local quarryman.
The current owners have extended the property on the rear elevation, creating a useful boot room/utility, which is ideal for kicking off boots and hanging coats after enjoying the lifestyle on the surrounding moors. The home is warmed by two 8kW multi-fuel stoves and modern storage heaters. It also has attractive double-glazed sash windows. The ground floor sitting room has a beautiful French oak floor, multi-fuel stove, direct access out to the gardens and dual aspect southerly views over King tor and the Walkham Valley. The kitchen/dining room is a good size and is perfect for entertaining with space for a sizeable dining table and further views to the side aspect. An original kitchen fireplace harbours the other multi-fuel stove which is a feature of the room along with a range cooker, solid beech kitchen cupboards/worktops and porcelain sink. The first floor main bedroom features windows that also look directly out across Dartmoor and enjoys uninterrupted views.
The south-facing gardens are mainly laid to lawn with well-stocked borders, vegetable patch and a summer house. There is a gated entrance to the side of the property which allows off-road parking for several cars. The house has private water from a borehole, septic tank drainage and mains electricity. The property is approximately 10 minutes by car to Tavistock, 5 minutes to Princetown (for any amenities) and a short walk to the Merrivale Inn public house.
