Nestled amid grounds amounting to just over nine tenths of an acre this impressive property was constructed in 1939 and was architect designed. It has been well-maintained and extended in the past to create what is now a fabulous and very spacious family home with an abundance of living space for a growing family.
The property is well-presented with light and neutral décor and feels warm and welcoming with oil-fired central heating and double-glazing throughout and also has a wood-burning stove; wonderful with a roaring fire on a dark winter night.
The entrance porch has hessian matting and plenty of space for hanging winter coats. A door leads into a large hallway which has a carpeted staircase to the first floor, two useful cupboards beneath, automatic lighting on a movement sensor and the original servant-call panel on a wall making a nice feature.
A fabulous, modern kitchen has a durable and stylish chequered vinyl floor, loads of elegant solid-stone worktops with tiled splashbacks and an elegant range of gloss-maroon fitted units with matching wall-cabinets, providing ample cupboard space complete with under-cabinet feature lighting. There is a one and a half-bowl ceramic sink with a mixer tap, two built-in fan-ovens, a separate induction hob, a fabulous Aga range and an integrated dishwasher.
The room flows into a dining room which has a built-in dresser and display shelving and plenty of room for six places around a table, ideal for a dinner party or a family celebration. An elegant glazed door leads from the kitchen into a utility room which has a vinyl floor, worktops with space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble drier, a double ceramic sink and mixer tap beside a back door to the garden and a cupboard contains a condensing oil-fired boiler for the central heating. A sitting room has pine floorboards and loads of light from French doors to the garden and a generously-sized living room which is carpeted and filled with light from a wide window and a glazed door to the garden with fabulous views over the garden and rolling countryside beyond. A modern wood-burning stove sits on a slate hearth and makes a lovely feature and focal point for the room making the room feel warm and cosy despite his generous proportions.
At the end of the hallway is a small library which has a solid oak floor and built-in bookshelves, leading into a spacious family room which has more of the solid-oak flooring and plenty of light from dual-aspect windows and a half-glazed door to the garden.
A sliding door leads from the hallway into a wet room which has a sealed vinyl floor and fully-tiled walls containing a shower area with a folding glass screen, a WC, a basin and a chrome heated towel rail.
Upstairs, the master bedroom is a spacious double filled with light from dual-aspect windows from where there are fabulous far reaching views over the Devon countryside. It has a huge fitted wardrobe, with sliding mirror doors, and an en suite bathroom which is modern and has part-tiled walls containing a bath with a shower and glass screen above, a vanity unit with a basin and storage beneath for toiletries, a WC, a medicine cabinet with mirrored doors and feature lighting and a chrome heated towel rail. There are three further light and airy bedrooms, all doubles with rural views, the smallest being l-shaped and currently used as a study, ideal for those working from home. A family bathroom is spacious and modern with a durable vinyl floor and part-tiled walls containing a p-bath with a shower and glass screen above, a pedestal basin and a WC, the landing has an airing cupboard containing an insulated hot water cylinder and slatted shelving for linen, a store cupboard above the stairs and a hatch in the landing ceiling with a drop-down ladder for ease of access into the loft space where there is plenty of additional storage. The loft also houses the inverter for the photovoltaic panels on the roof which generate electricity and greatly reduce the running costs of the property.
Outside, a gated entrance bracketed by granite pillars opens onto a tarmac driveway which leads through the gardens, flanked by shrubs, bushes and spring flowers on either side and widens beside the house providing parking for at least eight cars. Steps at the rear of the property lead up to an orchard with a greenhouse, a large timber shed, a fruit cage and the oil tank for the central heating. There are a number of moss-covered granite boulders which make a nice rustic feature and a couple of outbuildings for storage, one being derelict. French doors from the sitting room lead out onto a huge terrace of flagstone paving bordered by walled flowerbeds making a fabulous venue for entertaining guests, be it alfresco dining, a barbecue or sharing a bottle of wine in the tranquil surroundings. Steps lead down to a large area of lawn bordered by mature bushes and a number of trees. There is an outside tap for convenience and steps at the front of the property lead down to the driveway. There is a log-store at the side of the double-garage, which has lights and power, an up and over door, storage above in the rafters and a courtesy door to the side.
