An Arts and Crafts residence, located on the edge of Yelverton within DARTMOOR National Park, offering beautiful gardens, MOORLAND VIEWS, detached STUDIO/GYM and OUTBUILDINGS, plus enviable tranquillity in arguably one of this area's most desirable positions.

SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION
An elegant, detached house built originally, we believe in the 1800's and then later extended mainly in the arts & crafts period. The house has also undergone recent extensions and improvement by the current owner, creating a double garage and principal bedroom suite at the rear of the home.

Built in the traditional manner under a slate tiled roof, the property benefits from incredibly light living areas which gaze and open out to the south facing gardens and terraces. The gardens are a particular feature and the plot approaches one acre. The house is hidden from view at the entrance gates with a drive that sweeps along the eastern boundary to the parking area beside the house and in front of the double garage with remote sensor door. The drive continues to a further large splay next to the outbuildings on the northern boundary. These detached outbuildings are currently used as a gym/studio and offer space for a sauna and hot tub, plus additional storage above. There is scope for converting into annex or additional ancillary accommodation, subject to planning permission and approvals. There is also a further attached garage, workshop and tool shed, plus a wooden children's playhouse. To the side of the house the outbuildings continue with a further utility/wash house, log store, gardeners WC, and boiler room.

Internally, the home opens to a traditional porch, which has a glazed roof and ample room for removing garments, shoes, and boots. The entrance hall has an original floor which has been exposed by the current owners. There are three main living rooms to south facing side of the house, including an open plan kitchen/dining room, perfect for entertaining/cooking for guests and family. This room leads to a useful pantry and cloakroom with a door to the side garden and courtyard. There is a cosy lounge at the rear of the house which arcs back to the earliest and original building, with a wood burning stove and cottage character. A further sitting room to the side of the house is currently used as a study/home office with doors to the conservatory. This lovely conservatory has been recently modernised and has a panoramic view across the gardens and vista.

To the first floor is a spacious landing with a wonderful atrium providing additional light. The principal bedroom is now three rooms, which include a sizeable bedroom, ensuite, and dressing room. The dressing room was the originally a double bedroom and therefore could be used this way or makes an ideal nursery. There is a family bathroom and a further four bedrooms, all doubles, and all with additional characteristics including a balcony and elevated views across the landscape.

The gardens have several areas to relax and be at one with the surroundings, enjoying peace and sense of space. Mainly laid to lawn with an abundance of scented and colourful flowering shrubs within planted beds and secluded courtyards. There is a walled section of garden which is currently used for growing a productive array of vegetables and fruit, with a greenhouse and shed. The main area of garden to the front of the house has a sunny aspect and the home is a true summer retreat for those who want to be away from main thoroughfares but within easy reach of them.

Yelverton has a useful selection of shops, including the Coop supermarket, delicatessen, hairdressers, garage, and hotel. The ancient stannary town of Tavistock is around 6 miles to the north, with the historic naval port of Plymouth about 10 miles to the south. Yelverton has regular bus services to both Tavistock and Plymouth, where the national rail network provides connections to London and countless other destinations. Plymouth also has cross-channel ferry services to both France and Spain.

Sporting and Leisure facilities throughout the region are excellent – the Cornish beaches are within striking distance, and with Dartmoor National Park extending to over 300 square miles of stunning open countryside, there is plenty for the outdoor enthusiast to find. Sailing and other water sports are available within the Tamar and Tavy estuaries, and there are golf courses at Yelverton and Tavistock with numerous others throughout the region. There are also opportunities to fish by arrangement on the rivers Tamar, Tavy and Walkham.
