An enchanting mews house standing in delightful gardens of about 1/2 acre tucked away in a sheltered location, just outside the village of Horrabridge, which straddles the river Walkham on the western edge of the Dartmoor National Park. Adjoining the Mews is a further 7 acres of pasture land available under separate negotiation.

Description

The house is built of stone and part rendered elevations and probably dates from the late Victorian era. The first floor living spaces are impressive, not only in size and layout but in utilising the light and vistas out over parklands and gardens. It has been thoroughly and exquisitely refurbished in recent years utilising natural materials in a contemporary, practical and simple design. The sitting room is very large and has windows on all four sides. It leads into the large kitchen/breakfast room which again is flooded with light. This in turn leads into the conservatory, with lantern roof and French doors onto a terrace leading to the rear garden. In addition there is a "snug", currently used as a study, but could equally well serve as a fifth bedroom or TV/play room which has a cloakroom/utility room off (formerly a shower room ). Completing the first floor space is a large walk-in kitchen pantry. The ground floor comprises of a master bedroom with walk-in wardrobe and en-suite bathroom, three further bedrooms and two bathrooms.

The Mews is accessed from a country lane by a shared private drive, which leads to a granite set courtyard, providing parking for several vehicles. To the south of the courtyard is the stable block with 2 stables and an open fronted carport while opposite is the house, which includes a further double garage.

The mature gardens surround the mews, to the front is the paved courtyard leading to the double garage ( offering option to create further living space ) & opposite the stable building. The gardens behind the house are bounded by Devon hedges and tree line boundaries and include lawn, mature beds and water course & summer house.

Further Land Option : The grounds beyond lie beyond the gardens and comprise of 2 separate paddocks which extend to approx. 7 acres, both with field shelters (one requiring refurbishment ), 2 areas of woodland, an old quarry and some very fine mature trees. The ancient Grimstone and Sortridge Leat flows through the grounds providing a constant water supply to both paddocks.
