The details

A spacious semi-detached Victorian family home with a garage, five bedrooms, a large garden, cellar and superb views over the town and countryside in the market town of Newton Abbot.

A tarmac/gravel driveway leads to the front of the property where there is parking for several cars beside the detached single garage which has lights, power and folding double doors. Inside, the property is well-presented with stylish d├ęcor, is warm and welcoming with gas central heating and has retained many period features such as sash windows, deep skirting boards, high ceilings, picture rails and period fireplaces. The entrance hallway has a decorative tiled floor with bright red skirting boards and architraves and leads through the centre of the house. The living room is filled with light from a wide sash window from where there are stunning views over the garden to the countryside beyond. It has a papered feature wall and a fireplace which has a polished stone mantle and a granite hearth, fitted with a wood-burning stove, making a nice focal point for the room; wonderful with a roaring fire on a dark winter night.

A dining room has pine floorboards, another sash window with fabulous views and a decoratively tiled fireplace, and there is plenty of space for a dining table and seating for eight or more places, perfect for a dinner party or a family celebration. This room flows through an opening into a fabulous modern, galley-style kitchen with a tiled floor and elegant solid-granite worktops with tiled splashbacks. There is a range of maple door fitted units and wall-cabinets providing ample cupboard space, complete with under-cabinet feature lighting, an inset stainless-steel one and a half-bowl sink, with a draining board carved into the granite worktop, a built-in fan-oven with a gas hob and grease hood above, an integrated microwave, an alcove for an upright fridge/freezer and space with plumbing beneath the worktop for a dishwasher.

To the rear of the property is a light and airy utility extension with a tiled floor and dual-aspect windows. It has a tiled worktop with a stainless-steel sink, together with space and plumbing beneath the worktop for a washing machine and tumble drier. There is a convenient ground floor cloakroom with a WC and basin, a shower room with a double shower enclosure, and a handy storage cupboard also containing a condensing system boiler for the central heating and hot water.

There is a lobby which has hanging space for winter coats opposite a back door to a tiled courtyard where there is a log store, plenty of space for drying laundry, and a gate to the front providing alternative access.

A sitting/music room is another generous reception room which is carpeted, has stylish papered walls with picture rails and built-in cupboards on either side of the fireplace, one containing an insulated hot water cylinder and shelving. A door beneath the stairs in the hallway opens to reveal stairs down to the cellar where there is a wine store and two good-sized workshops with windows in each providing natural light.

Upstairs, there are five light and airy bedrooms, three spacious doubles, two having wash-hand basins, and two large singles. The master bedroom has pine floorboards, a papered feature wall with a fireplace, built-in wardrobes providing an abundance of clothes storage space and stunning views over Decoy park and surrounding countryside. On a half-landing there is a modern L-shaped bathroom with an elegant roll-top bath and shower attachment, a corner basin, a WC and a chrome heated towel rail, and walls tiled to dado height. The galleried landing has an elegant balustrade above the stairs and at the end of the landing there is a deep store cupboard with shelving, and hatch in the ceiling providing access to the loft.

Outside, the garden is split-level and surprisingly large with raised terraces of lawn with timber balustrades making wonderful venues for alfresco dining or a barbecue. Steps lead down to an extensive lawn bordered by trees, stone walls and well-stocked flower beds. There is a pond, a greenhouse for the tomato plants and children’s playhouse, and plenty of room for children to run around, and southeast-facing, it enjoys long hours of summer sunshine.
