guide of 600,000 Freehold

Built in 1984 in one of the most desirable positions in the picturesque village of Meavy, this individual house was re-roofed, extended and comprehensively refurbished in 2002, which has resulted in an exemplary and spacious country home. Behind a comparatively unassuming frontage is an exceptionally well-appointed series of logically ordered living spaces. All of the principal rooms, except for the east-facing kitchen, which overlooks Ringmoor Down face south and enjoy wonderful views across the garden and adjacent meadow with the River Meavy in the distance.
Evident throughout the interior is a high level of attention to detail that has been paid to the joinery by local craftsmen. Of particular note, are the windows and exterior doors in the African hardwood, Iroko by F.D. Hall and internal Ash doors and fittings by Dartmoor and Tamar Joinery. These are complimented in the entrance hall with Oak flooring (also seen in other reception rooms) and staircase, while   the fitted oak farmhouse style large kitchen has a ceramic tiled floor,and range cooker. Adjoining the kitchen, with double French doors opening onto a veranda is a superb, triple aspect dining room and this leads, in turn, to the open plan sun lounge which features a pitched roof with glazed panels and sitting room, fitted with a Clearview wood burning stove.
The upstairs accommodation includes splendid master bedroom which is triple aspect with a glorious vaulted ceiling and comes with its own dressing room and ensuite bath/double shower room. On the east elevation is a further single bedroom which is currently utilised as a second study, whilst the two further double bedrooms have built in wardrobes and the family bathroom boasts a separate walk-in shower.

Accessed via the rear porch, a double garage with electric roller up and over door and separate workshop open onto the front of the property which is demarcated by  electric gates leading  into a private driveway providing parking & turning for 4 vehicles. Double wooden gates on the western elevation lead to tarmacadam parking for a further two vehicles, or perhaps a motor home or boat and rear garden which faces south across pasture to the valley of the River Meavy towards Hay Wood and combines mature small trees and mixed borders within a beech & stock proof hedge.  There are two ornamental cherry trees, an Acer, a silver weeping pear and numerous shrubs including Camellia, Deutzia, Hydrangea, Abelia and Viburnum.  The main border has been planted for three seasons of colour and interest, while spring bulbs carpet the edge of the lawn in front of the house.  A further area of planting is divided by a paved path into two herbaceous borders and enclosed by low box hedges.  To one side are two raised beds used for vegetables and annuals, as well as an alpine bed on top of a dry stone wall.

Despite being rural, Meavy is within easy reach of amenities at Yelverton which include a garage/Post Office, pharmacy, vets, co-op, butchers and general store. Further afield, Tavistock and Plymouth are within easy reach.
The village is home to the renowned Royal Oak Inn (a short walk from the house) which overlooks the village green and was voted Pub of The Year by CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) which also serves good food. The area is well served with places to eat and drink to suit all tastes.
