As you enter into a generous entrance hall through a large solid wooden door, you have plenty of space to hang your coats or take your boots off after a day in the garden or on the moor. Through the original front door into the hallway you immediately notice the air of quality with tiled flooring, original wooden doors and neutral decor which makes it feel very welcoming. On your left is the sitting room which is a spacious and light-filled room with high ceilings, picture rail, cornice and a wood burner, as well as a square bay window which offers space for seating so that you can relax and enjoy views of the garden and, in the distance, the Dartmoor landscape. The adjoining dining room is generously proportioned with plenty of space for formal dining and again benefits from an outlook over your garden.

The kitchen is a large, light, spacious room where preparing and eating meals with family and friends makes it the hub of the house. The kitchen has slate flooring and a range of solid wooden units with a polished granite work surface. An 'Aga' emits residual warmth and extra cooking potential is provided by a ‘Neff’ oven and bottled gas hob. A stable door leads you to the back door and small porch with access to a large walk-in larder. Underneath the stairs is a WC and basin with access down a number of stairs to a laundry room which has plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer and space to hang your drying clothes.
The original staircase leads you to the half landing where you have access to the first of the bedrooms, currently utilised as an office however it could easily fit a double bed and furniture. The main large landing accesses the remaining four bedrooms. On your right you have bedroom two and the master bedroom, both overlooking the garden with fabulous views to Dartmoor. The master bedroom benefits from an en-suite bathroom, complete with roll top bath. Bedroom four is a further double room with another single room and the family shower room also found on this level. A further flight of stairs takes you to the converted roof space. These attic rooms have been used as an extra bedroom, a children’s snug and a television room as well as an artist’s studio/office with a picture frame window giving truly breathtaking views; not sure how you would manage to concentrate with a view like this!
A long basement room can also be found which is accessed externally and is currently utilised as a print studio but has been used as a games room.
As you approach the property through the granite posts into the driveway there is plenty of space for a number of cars and a double garage allows for further storage or space to park a prized possession. Historic stables can also be found with further storage for garden equipment and a gardener's WC is accessed to the rear of the property.
The gardens are extensive and offer a range of separate areas. The main garden is to the front of the house and is level, believed to be a croquet lawn enclosed by a Victorian stone wall with a range of mature shrubs and trees, creating a private and beautiful area to enjoy. Beyond is a further area of grass which formerly had a number of vegetable beds in; a secluded and safe place for children, pets or yourself to hide away from everybody and relax. To the side is a small orchard with a number of fruit trees, again mainly laid to lawn the boundaries are clearly defined with mature trees. The garden offers plenty of scope to try growing your own produce for you to make great use of in the fantastic kitchen, rustling up delicious homegrown treats!
