Edge of West Devon village

389,500 Freehold


Set back from the road between Tavistock and Lewdown on the edge of the village, an immaculately presented four-bedroom family home in the Georgian vernacular. Built in 2007, the principal rooms are all double-aspect, featuring classic large, multi-pained window openings bathing the rooms in natural light whilst providing beautiful views to the garden and the surrounding rural landscape.

Entered via a vestibule with a tiled floor, the hallway offers cloakroom and under-stairs storage. The ground floor living rooms are laid with Oak or Bamboo wooden flooring and under-floor heating.  To the left is a large sitting room with period style mouldings and a slate fire surround and hearth with fitted wood burner. The window overlooking the rear garden is a generous three-quarter height and double width, taking full advantage of its aspect. Also entered via the hall is a large kitchen/breakfast room. The beautifully appointed space features a comprehensive range of high quality cream base units and oak wall units (to echo the oak flooring). Work surfaces are black granite and all appliances are Bosch. Off this space is a utility room with fitted sink, wall and base units. Also on the rear south west elevation, French doors open onto a raised deck taking full advantage of its aspect and overlooks and accesses the garden.

Stairs lead from the hallway to the upper floor with a fine, recently refurbished family bathroom on the left with full-height tiling, doubled-ended Jacuzzi-bath with multi-jets, and matching white suite and corner shower cubicle.  Bedroom three with double-width windows, overlooks the rear garden; bedroom four is a generous single sized room that would admirably double into a study; bedroom two is double aspect. The en suite master bedroom is double aspect & overlooks the rear garden landscape – enhanced by a double width window opening. 


The property sits in a fine, well-planted garden, concentrating around the south and west elevations, that gently slopes from front to back and is accessed by a sloping path from the driveway which provides parking for three vehicles. Mature plantings feature Japanese Maples, rhododendrons and camellias and the experience is greatly enhanced by the sound of tumbling water from a stream that runs along the boundary with an adjacent field. Beneath the large raised deck are two large concrete dry stores ideal for garden machinery and barbeque equipment.
