A five-bedroom period detached property with outstanding views towards Dartmoor with large mature gardens and grounds totalling 1.75 acres.
SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION
Located just to the north of Yelverton is this detached period house set within mature gardens and grounds of around one-and three-quarter acres.
The property is situated at the end of a private road and enjoys wonderful views toward the western slopes of Dartmoor National Park. The grounds include part of the old track bed of the former South Devon and Tavistock railway, dating back to the middle of the 19th century. Adjacent to the existing property are extensive gardens/grounds with a level square of land where a separate property, also with stunning views over Dartmoor once stood. This land has had planning permission in the past for a new dwelling, which has now lapsed.
The accommodation includes separate living and dining rooms, taking advantage of the moorland views, and a good-sized kitchen/breakfast room also with views over the gardens and terrace towards the moors. The ground floor also has a cloakroom/w.c and adjoining bedroom or study. The first floor includes four bedrooms, the principal of which has ensuite facilities and further views across neighbouring farmland towards the western tors of Dartmoor. There is oil-fired central heating, and the windows are double-glazed.
Outside are two garages (one double and one single) and parking for a number of vehicles. The grounds include lawned areas and numerous mature shrubs and trees together with a terraced area leading from the principal ground floor rooms. The driveway, from the first of the neighbouring properties, is owned by Dolphin Cottage. The old railway bed is partially wooded and allows additional privacy. There is oil-fired central heating, and the windows are double-glazed.
A further approximate 8.5 acres is potentially available by separate negotiation. This land adjoins the property, is enclosed, and is gently sloping pasture.
