Dartmoor National Park

Walkham Valley

Guide of 498,500 Freehold


One of eight semi-detached Victorian Villas standing proudly in an enviable location in one of the most coveted western edge Dartmoor villages, capturing a superb panorama over the Walkham Valley. Both the attractive façade and the internal period detailing have been sensitively renovated retaining charming details such as sash windows, French doors and period fireplaces whilst cleverly dovetailing these with the expected features of a modern family home

The imaginative remodelling of living spaces is particularly noteworthy. On the ground floor an ‘opening up’ creates an exceptional day space which incorporates a beautifully fitted kitchen with granite worktops, fitted wine cooler and under floor heating with an architectural wood burner in the living, dining areas under a glazed atrium roof. On the first floor is the main area of sleeping accommodation, the master with its own en suite, and two further bedrooms sharing a family bathroom. On the second floor which is set beneath a recovered twin and part hipped gabled roof, are rooms which offer flexibility of usage. They are presently set out as a fourth bedroom with a landing/study area leading into a double apect loft-style living area and would be easily adaptable to a fifth bedroom – which commands the best aspect for the stunning views.

Completing the essence of this fine property is its plot. Set off the road, at the front is a parking forecourt for up to four vehicles (there is planning permission for a double garage) with steps leading down past the twin-gable side elevation with the front door which opens onto the side terrace which also wraps around the rear elevation and included and Gazebo with Jacuzzi. The lawned rear garden slopes gently away from the terrace towards adjoining pastureland that sweeps down to the Walkham valley.

Horrabridge is a well catered for village and has a thriving spirit including the recently opened community based public house & cafe.  Amenities include a post office/stores; bakery; fish & chip shop; florists; hairdressers; garage and a respected primary and nursery school. The main artery route is the A386 Plymouth-Tavistock of which the village has a covered bus stop.
