SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION This fine property is situated in a quiet, rural location, with far-reaching views to the surrounding countryside, yet offering convenient access to the A30 and the Dartmoor National Park.
The property is a short distance from the pretty Devon village of Sourton. The village is just outside the western boundaries of the Dartmoor National Park with easy access by footpaths and bridleways onto the open moor from the village. Sourton is served by a historic parish church and the very interesting Highwayman Public House. It is also on a regular bus route and access to the A30 dual carriageway and garage services is literally a short drive away at Sourton Down which in turn provides easy access to the Cathedral City of Exeter. The local town of Okehampton lies approximately 6 miles east of the property while Exeter is approximately 30 miles east.
Okehampton lies on the northern edge of Dartmoor National Park. It is approximately 30 miles from both the north and south Devon coasts. There are superb local beauty spots where one may enjoy walking, riding and fishing. The shopping area contains a bank and supermarkets, including Waitrose, as well as many interesting locally owned shops. Primary and secondary education is well catered for in local schools. The recreation ground and park contains, amongst other things, a covered heated swimming pool. Most sports are available including 18 hole golf course, squash courts, indoor rifle range and thriving rugby and soccer clubs.
A superb detached property, which has been constructed in recent years by the sellers, to a very high standard. The spacious and well presented accommodation comprises of sitting room; a dual aspect study/ground floor bedroom; an impressive open plan kitchen/living/dining room with bifold and French doors leading, to a raised terrace and offers lovely views over the land and towards surrounding countryside. There is a large utility room and boot room and ground floor shower room. To the first floor is a spacious landing, with doors leading to a dual aspect master bedroom, with excellent far-reaching views and an ensuite shower room. There are two further double bedrooms and two further bath/shower rooms. The property has full double glazing to all windows and doors and benefits from a state of the art air source central heating system.
To the outside, the property is approached from the quiet country lane, into a driveway, providing off-road parking for numerous vehicles. There is a substantial outbuilding, which has a section of it converted to secondary accommodation, which has been used in recent times for letting purposes, and would be ideal as accommodation for a dependant relative. The remainder of the outbuilding is currently used as storage, yet could offer scope for further accommodation, subject to the necessary planning consents being granted. There is also a former piggery, currently used as a substantial store.
There are extensive gardens, which are currently undergoing some landscaping and offer the prospective purchaser a 'blank canvas' to create some wonderful outside space. The remainder of the land predominantly consists of woodland, with Devon Bank and fenced boundaries, and some great vantage points to enjoy some excellent views of the surrounding countryside.
There is an additional 3 acre paddock which is available by separate negotiation, further details upon request.
We are delighted to be appointed as sole agents for the sale of this excellent property, which is offered with NO ONWARD CHAIN and viewing is highly recommended.
