The details

This fabulous, substantial property was originally constructed in 1910 and later extended with the addition of the family and utility rooms. It was completely refurbished and remodelled approximately six years ago, creating what is now a fabulous spacious and light family home which takes full advantage of the superb views and it sits within grounds of approximately one fifth of an acre.

Inside, the property is beautifully presented with light and neutral decor throughout and is arranged over two floors offering spacious and versatile accommodation for a growing family. It is warm and welcoming with oil-fired central heating, double-glazing throughout and has two wood-burning stoves.

Double doors open into a fabulous entrance hallway which is carpeted, has an inset doormat and is open to the top-floor sloping ceiling giving a sense of space. It has dado rails and a decorative archway leads into an inner hallway where a staircase rises to the first floor with a handy cupboard beneath.

A spacious drawing room is carpeted and filled with light from wide sliding patio doors to the terrace from where there are stunning views over the surrounding countryside. A wood-burning stove on a slate hearth with an oak mantle makes a lovely feature and focal point for the room, wonderful with a roaring fire on a dark winter night and there is display shelving built into an alcove on one side of the chimney breast.

Next door the sitting room has a multi-fuel stove and further sliding patio doors open into the garden, which makes the room warm and cosy in winter, light and airy in summer.

A generously-sized kitchen/dining room has a tiled floor and loads of light from dual-aspect sliding patio doors both with fabulous rural views. A modern fitted kitchen has elegant solid-quartz worktops and an extensive range of oak-fronted fitted units, with matching wall-cabinets, providing ample cupboard space. There is a built-in eye-level double-oven, a separate ceramic hob with an integral extractor hood above, an inset stainless-steel one and a half-bowl sink with a mixer tap and a draining board carved into the quartz worktop, an integrated dishwasher and an alcove in the units has a space ideal for a large American-style fridge/freezer.There is plenty of room for dining table and seating for eight or ten places, perfect for a dinner party or a family celebration. One of the two radiators has the versatility of being dual fuel.

To the side is a utility room which has more of the solid-quartz worktop and oak units with a ceramic sink and space with plumbing beneath for a washing machine and tumble drier. There is a door to the garden and another door into a handy store cupboard with a worktop and shelving.

A double bedroom completes the ground floor with a handy understairs cupboard, a walk-in wardrobe providing plenty of clothes storage and has doors to the kitchen and hallway.

Upstairs, on the half-landing is a convenient cloakroom with a WC and basin and the staircase continues up to the first floor where there is the master bedroom, a fabulous double with a papered feature wall and loads of light from dual-aspect windows, from where there are stunning views over the surrounding Devon countryside and woodland. It has a fitted wardrobe and an en suite bathroom containing a bath with a shower attachment, a separate shower, a WC, a pedestal basin, a dual fuel heated towel rail and has plenty of natural light from an obscured-glass window and a Velux skylight.

There are two further spacious double-bedrooms, both flooded with light from wide windows to the front with more of the superb countryside views and both with papered feature walls and fitted wardrobes. A family bathroom has a durable vinyl floor and contains a bath with a shower attachment, a separate shower with a rain head and a second showerhead, a WC, a pedestal basin and a dual fuel heated towel rail. The landing has a built-in airing cupboard containing an insulated hot water cylinder and a shelf for linen and hatches in the ceilings of the master bedroom and landing, provide access to loft spaces, both with drop-down ladders and lights for convenience and partial-boarding providing extensive additional storage.

Wrought-iron gates open to allow access onto a block-paved driveway where there is parking for at least four cars. There is a block-built workshop/store which has lights and power and provides extensive storage.

An area of paving leads along the rear of the property where there is a boiler room containing the oil-fired boiler, a low-level storage area with a removable hatch, a plastic double-bunded oil tank for the central heating and a back door to utility room. Steps lead down to a terrace at the end of the property where there are sleeper-edged beds of plants, shrubs and flowers and a greenhouse for tomato and bedding plants. An extensive paved terrace at the front of the property is perfect for entertaining guests, be it alfresco dining, a barbecue or sharing a bottle of wine in the tranquil surroundings serenaded by wild birdsong. There is another log-store and steps lead down to a manicured, level lawn bordered by neatly-edged beds well-stocked with all kinds of shrubs, plants and flowers, a small wildlife pond and the boundary is marked by a neat hedge of Privet, Leylandii, Beech and Laurel.
