ON THE EDGE OF DARTMOOR NATIONAL PARK is this equestrian property with land totalling approximately 10 acres with detached STABLE BLOCK, yard and SAND SCHOOL. Detached indoor SWIMMING POOL with potential to convert subject to the necessary planning consents.
SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION
Located in a desirable hamlet just two miles south of Tavistock and within easy commuting distance of Plymouth, this detached three bedroomed house and adjoining pasture land would be perfect for those with equestrian interests, particularly given the excellent riding in the area, especially along the Walkham River valley, to Long Ash or West Down which can be easily accessed from the property via small country lanes or cross the A386 and ride directly to Plasterdown and the vast, open expanse of Dartmoor.
Approached via a long, sweeping driveway and affording a high degree of privacy and security, this detached family home affords very spacious accommodation arranged over two floors, with large reception rooms including a family sized kitchen breakfast room, downstairs shower room, cloakroom, utility, and boot room plus three double bedrooms (master ensuite) and a family bathroom.
Horses are equally well catered for, with a detached stable block and yard (which can be seen from the house) with 5 loose boxes, power, light, and water. Adjacent is a double detached garage currently incorporating a feed room. The pastureland extends from the front of the house where jumps are set up, to the side and rear where there is a sand school which could easily be extended. The current owner has informed us that the land with the property totals approximately 5 acres and is well maintained and securely fenced.
Beyond the house is a large indoor swimming pool which has provided great family fun in recent years but is now in a state of disrepair. In our opinion, the pool could be recommissioned or perhaps converted for residential use as an annexe, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents.
A track leads up to another large parcel of good quality pastureland which the current owner has informed us totals approximately 5.75 acres and incorporates a detached, purpose-built barn with later extension housing a stable block with 4 loose boxes (11'2" x 11') plus a covered area (29' x 10'10)" and small concrete turnout yard. Adjacent, in the extension, is a Tractor Shed and Workshop/Store (29' x 23'), with power, light and water on.
