An elegant period residence with an enviable veranda, located in a no-through road in a peaceful setting on the edge of Yelverton, offering balanced and sizeable living spaces, modern zonal heating and notable character.

A semi-detached period home built we understand in the late 1800's, offering open and light rooms, wonderful character and stylish décor. The house is located in a desirable private road, away from the main thoroughfare of the village, however incredibly convenient for amenities and transport links in Yelverton and Dartmoor.

The property is approached from a long drive, allowing ample parking, flanked by an attractive level lawned garden. To the side of the house is a detached garage and shed, which was a former stable. To the rear, there is a small area of garden and courtyard with two further stores, one of which is the site of the new Vaillant boiler, and the other is a general store. On the side of the property is a staircase to the 1st floor with another store underneath.

At the front of the house is the main garden and original veranda, with climbing plants and a beautiful wisteria. This sheltered canopy is perfect for sitting out, rain or shine. Off the veranda is a sunroom, with space for seating, which has been used as a playroom. The central porch opens to a reception hall with stairs rising to the 1st floor. The main living spaces are versatile and can be adapted to meet peoples needs. The main sitting room has a Morso wood burning stove and original features. This room opens to the dining area which creates a lovely entertaining space. The two other reception rooms are again of good size and are currently used as a sizeable home office, with an open fireplace and family room. There is also a useful shower room with a WC at the end of the reception hall and in turn the kitchen breakfast room. The kitchen offers opportunity for modernisation and provides space for a good-size family table and plentiful storage spaces. The side wall of the kitchen area requires repair and reinstatement. Off the kitchen is boot room, which has space for further appliances, and is a perfect space to remove coats and wellies after a walk, plus dog beds. There are PVCu double glazed doors to the rear courtyard and the main gardens at the front of the property.

The property is warmed with a main gas modern Vaillant combi boiler, which has zonal control for upstairs and downstairs. The current owners control the heating with Google Nest. The windows are a mixture of original sash, with secondary glazing and double-glazed units.

To the 1st floor is a landing space with four double bedrooms and a single bedroom. The bedrooms are well lit, with views to the front, and original features. Off the landing is a corridor which is flanked with a separate WC and a lobby/store. This room once housed a kitchenette and has a door out to the external staircase leading down to the side garden. To the rear is a further landing space, which could be an occasional bedroom, with a large cupboard, ideal for housing clothing, linens, and towels; this room leads to the contemporary bathroom with a separate shower at the back of the house.
The property is located a short walk from the centre of Yelverton and open countryside. The village of Meavy is down the lane, with a traditional Dartmoor pub and sought after primary school.
