SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION An extended and elegant 1920's residence set at the end of a leafy sweeping driveway with beautiful established gardens around half an acre and positioned close to the centre of Yelverton in a convenient and secluded situation. The home has been improved since purchased in 2010 and now includes a light ground floor annex area, modern style kitchens/utility rooms, replacement PVCu double glazing and doors and a new heating system which is now mains gas and continued quality maintenance. There are still notable character features including stained glass windows, original doors, fireplaces and working servant bells in the main rooms.

The gardens are a credit to the owners and have been opened for charity over the years for all to appreciate with many specimen and rare trees and shrubs. The rear garden faces in a southerly direction and is adjacent to the cricket ground with views from the first floor windows and balconies to the surrounding moorland of Dartmoor National Park. The accommodation comprises porch, reception hall, cloakroom, sitting room, drawing room, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, utility/annex kitchen, wc, annex living room and annex garden room. To the first floor is a landing, inner landing, four bedrooms, three en-suites and a family bathroom. There is also a sizeable detached double garage with a games room above which provides scope for a further independent living area/bedroom.

We are also understand that the property was once a guest house hence the number of en-suites, ideal for those who would like to enjoy a holiday on Dartmoor. The recently opened Drakes Trail runs along the woodlands adjacent to the front of the house and provides cycle lane and pedestrian path to Yelverton and down to Plymouth.
