SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION
A secluded property, away from main roads and hidden from view with attractive courtyard for al-fresco dining. The property is approached by a large gated gravelled driveway suitable for up to six cars at the front of the property. There is approximately half an acre garden with the property which is mainly laid to lawn with a mixture of specimen trees, herbaceous borders, a wild meadow area, fruit trees and is bordered on three sides by mature Devon hedges. There is a tremendous sense of space and peace at the property with south-easterly views up the valley towards the open moor. There is also a separate field, approx. two-acres, which has a natural spring water supply feeding a water trough and standpipe and is currently home to some alpacas. This field is yards from the barns and also has panoramic views to Brentor in the North, Bodmin to the West and Plymouth to the south. Externally the layout of the two barns gives a wonderful open courtyard, which is ideal for entertaining family and friends in this beautiful setting.
This idyllic residence comprises of two natural stone constructed barns which originally formed part of a small farm in Lovaton and are believed to date back to the 1800's. The main house retains many original features and oak beams and includes three double bedrooms, two bathrooms (one ensuite) and a very spacious boot-room and utility with slate flagstone flooring. The family kitchen, with its own large four oven AGA is the heart of this now open plan property, leading down oak steps to the dining and sitting rooms.
The 'Hayloft' or ancillary barn, comprises on the ground floor a large workshop/store and is now home to the water treatment system. There is also a further useful ‘gardeners WC' and utility room plus a lobby which has stairs up to the living areas. The upper ground floor has been converted to provide a double bedroom, living space with wood burning stove, bathroom, and modern kitchen area. There is also a door out to the gardens at the rear. In this area of the garden is a spacious studio/office with two separate phone lines, Wi-Fi and broadband (separate from the main house) and electrics. At the back of the garden is a greenhouse and chicken coup.
Lovaton falls within the Parish of Meavy and is only ½ mile to this popular moorland village or a 20-minute ramenities and 20 minutes to the market town of Tavistock.
