Enjoying super VIEWS in all directions, a BEAUTIFULLY RESTORED four bedroom DETACHED COUNTRY HOUSE with private garden, garage/outbuildings, parking and hardstanding. and one acre PADDOCK in an enviable position on the edge of Dartmoor but still within easy reach of Tavistock Town.
Located in an enviable position on the western fringes of the Dartmoor National Park, and within easy reach of the pretty market town of Tavistock, this handsome, detached country house has recently undergone an extensive, yet sympathetic, restoration, resulting in a stylish home, beautifully designed and finished yet still full of warmth and character.
The large, spacious rooms have been carefully reconfigured, with the principal reception rooms and all four bedrooms taking full advantage of the super unobstructed views that extend in all directions, over the surrounding Devon countryside towards the tors of Dartmoor, the iconic Brentor Church and to Cornwall in the distance.
The current owners have spared no expense in restoring the house and adding modern features where appropriate and in keeping, including a new Delabole roof at the rear, improved levels of insulation and double glazed sliding sash and casement windows with slate cills and new doors. Old open fires have been replaced with efficient woodburning stoves on slate or granite hearths, most of the joinery work is new, including heavy oak doors throughout, a new oak staircase and handrail, fitted cupboards and wardrobes. New floors have been laid in either oak or limestone tile, with carpet in the bedrooms. In addition, unseen, but equally as important, improvements include a full electrical re-wire and new plumbing and heating system, served by an oil fired boiler.
Arranged around a new reception hall, the sitting room, dining room and snug are perfectly proportioned rooms, ideal for entertaining guests or you can settle in on a cold night around one of the recently installed woodburning stoves. The large, family sized kitchen has been completely refitted with a good quality range of units, granite worktops and an Everhot (electric) Range Cooker has been installed. A passage leads to a newly constructed utility room and an inner courtyard from which a door enables access to the garage. A bootroom and cloakroom completes the ground floor.
Upstairs, arranged around a galleried landing, are four double bedrooms, most with fitted wardrobes and storage, but all enjoying stunning views over the surrounding Devon and Dartmoor countryside. The main bathroom includes a cast iron roll top bath, with separate double shower, wc and wash basin and a separate shower room has been fully refitted and is ready for guests.
Situated on the western flanks of the Dartmoor National Park, the house is located off a minor country lane, in a peaceful, rural but not isolated position, within its own extensive grounds and gardens including a one acre paddock suitable for a pony or other livestock. The gardens are a particularly attractive feature, level, lawned, with well stocked beds and borders providing an array of seasonal colour. A Garden Store (7'4" x 4') houses the lawnmower, tools etc. The paddock lies to the side of the garden and is generally level pasture curtailed by traditional Devon hedging. A five barred gate gives independent access to the road.
A gravelled parking area is edged with newly built dry stone walling and a wooden gate leads to the front garden with cobbled path and ornamental beds, shielded from the road by high hedging. A second driveway provides another parking space/hardstanding in front of the attached single garage and workshop.
