STUNNING MOORLAND PROPERTY set within grounds of APPROXIMATELY ONE ACRE, with moorland and estuary VIEWS, the house is located adjacent to open moorland and includes SWIMMING POOL, PADDOCK and mature gardens surrounding the property. Outbuildings include a DETACHED BARN and further GARAGE. The accommodation includes five bedrooms and four reception rooms. It is the first time in 30 years the property has come to the market. The accommodation lends itself to providing a separate ANNEXE if required and village facilities are within one mile.

SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION Delightful detached property set within generous and mature grounds amounting to almost an acre, which includes a paddock and swimming pool. Situated in Dartmoor National Park with rural views towards the Tamar estuary and Dartmoor. Dating, we understand, from the mid 1920's, the property has been greatly improved and extended over the years and now provides comfortable family accommodation, which balances the wonderful outside space.

Less than a mile from the excellent facilities of Yelverton village, the property stands on the edge of the former Harrowbeer Airfield, previously used as a wartime airbase, which now forms part of the surrounding moorland. The cottage has the most wonderful views in all directions which include an outlook towards the nearby higher moor in one direction, and across open countryside towards the Tamar estuary and Brunel's famous railway bridge into Cornwall, in another.

Available for the first time in 30 years, the property includes extremely pretty gardens with numerous large shrubs and trees including rhododendrons, wisteria, camellias and azaleas. A detached two-storey barn/stable building is ideal for storage and implements. A detached garage offers further storage space.

The accommodation is versatile and has evolved over time. If required, the layout lends itself to providing a two storey separate annexe with wheelchair-friendly access. In all there are four/five bedrooms and three/four reception rooms.
