SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION On the market with the benefit of no onward chain, a sizeable and elegant Victorian House, totalling 3897 sqft, which is situated in a desirable village on the edge of Dartmoor National Park.
This impressive family home benefits from modern and period features, large front driveway, garaging for several vehicles and elegant central entrance adding to enviable curb appeal. Built in the 1880's, one of the oldest houses in the village, it is steeped in history having once served as the Pilot Officers Mess and accommodation for the Harrowbeer Airfield in World War II. Extended to the rear in the 1970's to almost double its original size and recent additions included the adjoining garages and new conservatory with garden store underneath. The house was also once home to a well-known musician and also comprises a recording studio which is now a living room and study at the rear of the house. This family home also offers the comfort of mains gas central heating, restored and improved original sash windows to the front elevation, PVCu double glazed doors and windows, plus further insulation measures. There is also a solar water heating system and a bank of 16 photo-voltaic cells which provide hot water, electricity and an income. The kitchen is the heart of a house with a mains gas Aga nestled within a beautiful bespoke and handmade oak fitted workspace with generous cupboards, and storage areas topped with granite work surfaces. The majority of the downstairs living spaces have solid oak flooring along with an attractive original tiled hallway which complements the further original stain glass porch door.
The house also has a library area with attractive fitted shelving and French doors opening to an improved decked seating terrace and in turn the garden. There is a utility room with plumbing for appliances which has a door which leads out to a small courtyard with a further pedestrian door into one of the garages.
Upstairs the landing has further fitted book shelves and opens to several good size bedrooms, one of which is currently a dressing room with fitted wardrobes. There are several shower rooms across the house including a large family bathroom and spa bath.
The property has many other qualities especially the amount of storage which includes a large loft space with two Velux windows which is boarded and insulated, cellar rooms (some of which have restricted head height), fitted wardrobes, under crofts and good size garages on each elevation creating ample space for everyday items, classic cars and outdoor pursuit equipment which is ideal for the owners of this residence on the edge of Dartmoor.
The house is ideally positioned around the corner and yards from open moorland, local transport links and in an excellent catchment for schools. The village is also considered an excellent distance from Plymouth for commuting and a slice of city life while Tavistock is approximately 15 minutes by car.
