You enter a useful porch which is the perfect place to kick off boots and hang up coats after a walk out on the moor. From here you are led into the large kitchen/dining/living room with a part double height vaulted ceiling. There are windows to the front and rear all enjoying a pleasant outlook. The dining area is very homely with wooden floors and space for both dining table and chairs and ‘lounge’ furniture. The kitchen features a range of modern wall and base level units under a bespoke highly polished granite worktop, and from here you overlook the dining area; perfect for entertaining guests or keeping an eye on the children. A separate sitting room is found to one end of the property, with windows to three sides, offering views over the surrounding gardens. This generous room with a vaulted ceiling is centred around a fireplace housing a multifuel wood burner, ready for cosy winter evenings. French doors lead out to a private decked entertaining area taking advantage of the southerly orientation. To the far end of the property is a central hallway leading to bedrooms 2, 3 & 4 plus a family bathroom. Bedroom 2 is a dual aspect double room with ensuite shower room leading off. This room is a great guest room for visiting family and friends. Bedroom 3 is also another dual aspect double bedroom. Finally bedroom 4 is good sized double bedroom, however used by our vendor as a study. The family bathroom has a matching three piece suite including a shower over the bath.
A staircase leads up from the living area to the galleried mezzanine area. This useful space could be used in a variety of ways; maybe a reading retreat, hobbies area or dressing room. The master bedroom suite has half the first floor to itself and is a sizable double room with an ensuite shower room.
The property is accessed via a private driveway over common land leading up to a 5 bar gate, the driveway continues around to the rear of the property. The enclosed gardens which surround the property amount to circa 1.25 acres. Beautiful mature Pine trees are a real feature of the garden and offer a degree of shelter and privacy. The lawns meander in between the trees and beyond creating interest and are perfect for children and pets to play on. A gate leads off from the gardens into the pastureland. To one side of the garden is a double garage and large utility room with a shower room. Beyond here is a workshop (previously a hay store) which is attached to a tack room, loose box and recently created studio/home office (converted from 2 former loose boxes). One side of the property is flanked by the Walla Brook, which flows eventually into the nearby East Dart River.
Approximately 5.5 acres of pasture surround the property to 2 sides. The larger of the 2 fields has been divided into 2, great if you need to rotate horses or other grazing animals. Beyond the stables and studio is a gateway into another field which is also fully enclosed to all sides. The fields have potential for a whole variety of uses including equestrian, grazing animals or somewhere enclosed to walk the dogs.
