SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION
This incredibly appealing period home is nestled into a quiet and sheltered position on the edge of the village of Horrabridge, enjoying a very good degree of privacy and an attractive outlook over its own gardens towards the surrounding countryside. The house is perfectly located for active families and those who enjoy an outdoors-oriented lifestyle, being within a short distance of the village centre yet with open moorland nearby and a stop on the Tavistock to Plymouth bus route also within easy reach. Horrabridge is a beautiful village with a medieval bridge and village green, on the banks of the River Walkham. It is serviced by a selection of shops including Post Office and Stores, bakery, fish and chip shop and art gallery as well as a Church, two pubs and an Ofsted Outstanding-rated primary school. Tavistock, a thriving market town rich in history and tradition dating back to the 10th century is just 3.5 miles away to the northwest. Yelverton with its popular parade of shops, GP and Veterinary Surgeries, fuel station and post office are only 2 miles to the southeast. Open moorland at Plaster Down is 1.5 miles to the north, leading onto the full expanse of rugged Dartmoor, which offers unlimited opportunities for exploring.

This exquisite period house has retained many of its original and attractive features including beautiful traditional fireplaces, sash windows and high ceilings. The versatile accommodation, comprising four bedrooms and three reception rooms, offers a spacious comfortable home with warmth and charm in equal measure. Externally, this house is complemented by a well-established south-facing garden that wraps around the property on three sides. Finally, there is a unique opportunity to acquire additional adjacent land of 2.47 acres available by separate negotiation, ideal for amenity use and may present an option for those with equestrian interest or looking to accommodate domestic livestock.

This is an extremely elegant period house that contains many original and classic features of its time, including substantial, solid timber panelled doors, detailed architraves, ceiling mouldings, picture rails, sash windows and fireplaces. The accommodation is accessed on the ground floor into a welcoming reception hallway, with high ceilings and original tiled floor, and stairs rising to the first floor. The sitting room is an attractive, bright, and spacious room with a large sash bay window overlooking the gardens. The room is complete with ornate coving and cast-iron fireplace on a marble hearth and a timber mantel surround. Timber folding doors lead from the sitting room into the dining room, where there is a matching cast iron fireplace on a slate hearth and French doors leading out to the patio. Across the reception hall is the kitchen/breakfast room, which is equipped with an excellent range of cupboards with black granite worktops, a Neff electric oven and four-ring gas hob with extractor fan over, plus a 1.5 bowl Franke sink. There is a space beneath the counter for a dishwasher and a separate space for a fridge. Set into a tiled recess is a gas-fired Rayburn Nouvelle cast iron stove. The utility, which has a ceramic butler sink and a side door into the garden, provides spaces for the laundry appliances and leads onto a cloakroom. Finally on the ground floor is the study, which has formerly been used as a formal dining room and enjoys an attractive outlook over the property's side gardens through a large bay window. From the hallway there is an attractive staircase with an ornate carved newel post leading and turning up to the first-floor landing , from where there are doors off to each of the bedrooms. The principal bedroom is a beautiful, bright and square room enjoying an attractive verdant outlook across the gardens and fields and finished with traditional period detailing. Across the landing is a useful linen and airing cupboard housing the gas combi boiler. The second bedroom, served by its own ensuite, is currently utilised as a guest suite and benefits from a dual aspect, thereby enjoying good views of the garden. The third bedroom is another bright and well-presented room, with two sash windows providing a view over the gardens towards surrounding countryside. The fourth bedroom is currently adapted for use as a dressing room, with several large, fitted wardrobes across three walls also incorporating low-level drawers and overhead storage. The family bathroom is beautifully finished with an extremely tasteful suite to include a freestanding oval, clawfoot bath with shower attachment, and a corner shower cubicle.
