An architect designed country house set on the fringe of the desirable village of Crapstone, on the western edge of Dartmoor National Park. The property built in 1977 was extended in 1988, and now provides extensive accommodation best desribed as a modern day version of the traditional Devon ‘Long House’.
Thoughtful consideration to the design is evident, especially in its siting, size and aspect. Good room proportions enabling the accommodate of period furniture; front to back light; delightful  views from many aspects and a south-westerly rear sun terrace & garden enhance the properties appeal.
The current layout offers a good deal of flexibility. Currently set out as a four bedroom family house with first floor guest suite/home office, there is potential, with little alteration, to create a one bedroomed apartment. Reconfiguring the garage into living quarters and with minor first floor alteration, a 3 bedroom self-contained wing could be created, either being suitable for an extended family or for rental purposes – building regulations and/or planning permission maybe required.
