Converted approximately 30 years ago, the property has lots of character, is light, warm and welcoming, a fabulous synergy of rustic charm and modern convenience. It is well-presented, with light and neutral décor throughout and is warm, being fully double-glazed and having oil-fired central heating.
The entrance hallway has a beautiful tiled floor with a convenient ground-floor cloakroom to the side, that has plenty of storage for coats and shoes and contains a WC and basin. French doors open into a carpeted snug or study, a lovely room with a stone fireplace making a lovely feature. There is a door leading into a utility room with bare stone walls, a slate-tiled floor and a door to the garden, along with a high-level window providing natural light. It contains an oil-fired boiler for the heating or hot water and there is floorspace, with plumbing and services, for a washing machine and tumble dryer.
Steps lead down from the entrance hallway, beside a beautiful stained-glass window, into a spacious and light kitchen/breakfast room which has more of the tiled flooring, plenty of solid-granite worktops along every wall, with a wonderful bespoke kitchen that has a range of cream cupboards and drawer units with matching wall cabinets, complete with tiled splashbacks and undercabinet feature lighting. Well-equipped too, there is a fabulous range oven providing the excellent cooking facilities, a twin Belfast sink beneath the window and integrated appliances include two freezers, a fridge and a dishwasher. There is plenty of space for a farmhouse-style dining table and chairs, ideal for informal dining. A separate dining room is perfect for a formal dinner party or a family celebration and is currently used as a playroom.
A solid-oak door leads down, with a couple of wooden steps, into a fabulous living room which is filled with light from arched windows and doors on both sides and despite its generous proportions, it feels cosy, warm, and welcoming. There is beautiful, solid-oak flooring and a vast stone inglenook fireplace, with a slate-tiled hearth and a chunky oak lintel above, fitted with a wood-burning stove and inset mood lighting, making a fabulous feature and wonderful with a roaring fire on a dark winters night.
Upstairs, is the master bedroom, a spacious double, filled with light from dual-aspect dormer windows, from where there are fabulous views over the garden, to the rolling Devon countryside beyond. There is a built-in wardrobe with sliding doors and an ensuite shower room which is modern and elegant, fully-tiled, containing an integrated bathroom storage/vanity unit with an inset basin, a large wall mirror, a hidden-cistern WC and a shower, together with natural light from a Velux window.
There are three further bedrooms, two doubles and a single, the largest of which has a dormer window with fabulous rural views and a large built-in wardrobe, with internal lighting and sliding mirror doors, providing an abundance of storage. The family bathroom has a durable vinyl floor and fully-tiled walls, containing a white three-piece suite, comprising of a bath, with a shower and glass screen above, a WC, a pedestal basin with an illuminated mirror above and a chrome heated towel rail. The landing has two generous sized cupboards, providing an abundance of storage space and a hatch in the ceiling provides access to the remaining loft space.
Outside at the front, a shared gravel courtyard has parking for three cars, beside the entrance of this attractive property which still has its original granite steps as features at the front and side of the building.
To the rear there is an extensive fully enclosed garden, perfectly safe for children and pets and from where there are fabulous, far-reaching views over the surrounding countryside. A private terrace of paving is perfect for entertaining guests, be it a family barbecue or alfresco dining, while the children amuse themselves on the large and mostly level lawn. There is a granite-walled bed of flowers and plants, a gazebo, draped in sweet-smelling honeysuckle, a perfect space for a hot tub perhaps. Granite steps lead up to a further area of lawn, where there is a stone-walled enclosure, hiding the oil-tank, for the central heating and there is a bin storage area, beside a five-bar gate leading to the driveway.
A paddock, with a couple of apple trees at the end is ideal for keeping a horse or pony perhaps, and a large timber shed, which has power and lights, provides extensive storage for a ride on lawn mower and gardening tools.
A viewing is essential in order to fully appreciate all that this wonderful family home has to offer.
