Torvescan House is situated in an enviable position adjoining open countryside and overlooking a pretty wooded valley. Built in the 1960's and starting life as a traditional bungalow, this property has no immediate neighbours and sits within an established plot of land amounting to circa 8.7 acres. A previous owner extended the bungalow by adding a two storey extension which was designed to take full advantage of the beautiful countryside views from the first floor.

You enter the property into a large and welcoming entrance hallway leading into a newly fitted bespoke kitchen with integrated appliances and attractive solid stone worktop. From the kitchen views can be enjoyed over the garden towards woodland beyond. Adjoining the kitchen is a separate dining room with a bay window and Jack & Jill multi fuel burner. There is also a cosy snug which our vendors particularly enjoy in the winter months with the focal point of the room being the multi fuel burner. Beyond the reception rooms and kitchen are three double bedrooms, two of which enjoy striking views. A well appointed bathroom and separate shower room provide flexibility.

First Floor

On the first floor is a generous dual aspect sitting room with a large sliding door accessing a large balcony where a most stunning view is enjoyed over the established gardens and adjoining countryside towards a wooded valley with Dartmoor National Park beyond. Leading off the sitting room is a separate study area with a window looking up the driveway. A further door gives access to a large loft area which has the potential to be converted into an additional bedroom with en-suite or reception room, subject to planning consents.

Self-Contained Annexe

Below the sitting room is a self-contained annexe which offers a large bedroom, kitchenette and shower room. Our vendors currently utilise this space as a hobbies room but this area would also make a spacious home office.

Garden Room

To the rear of the property is a garden room that is well positioned for enjoying the morning sun and also has access to the land.


Underneath the property is a cellar currently utilised as a workshop which is divided into five separate rooms with power and light connected.


The jewels in the crown of this property are the well established and mature gardens which have been lovingly tended by our vendors. The gardens are divided into various areas predominantly located to the side and rear of the property and contain a variety of specimen trees and shrubs including rhododendrons and azaleas. Adjoining the rear of the property is a most appealing terrace perfect for al fresco dining. The tarmac driveway sweeps to one side of the property and offers off-road parking for several vehicles and a detached double garage. An expanse of lawn leads from the garden area and could ideally be transformed into a vegetable patch for those aspiring to a self-sufficient lifestyle. A separate 5 bar gate and lane gives access to the rear gardens and lawn.


A further 5 bar gate leads from the lawn directly into the pasture land amounting to circa 5.3 acres which is currently divided into three separate enclosures with well defined hedge boundaries. The middle field has mains water connected. The fields are gently sloping and free draining. To the lower side of the fields is approximately 2.3 acres of deciduous woodland. The land may be of interest to those who are looking to establish an equestrian facility or perhaps those looking for a slice of the good life!
