Located in what many consider the most desirable section of Yelverton, on the western edge of Dartmoor National Park, Rough Torre is a truly exemplary detached family home and one of only eight in the village to possess the rare combination of the finest views with a favoured southerly aspect. Built in 1980, the property was comprehensively refurbished, by the current owners, in 2007 under the supervision of architects Scaratt and Martin, by a reputable local builder, reconfiguring the internal layout of both floors.
The ground floor boasts a generous 28’ sitting room with a separate snug off the hallway. Perhaps the finest feature of the refurbishment, however, is the pitch height 38’ deep open plan day space bathed in natural light by virtue of integral roof glazing, and bi-fold curtain doors (also fitted in the sitting room). Within the space, which features under-floor heating, is a state of the art kitchen/breakfast room (see specification) and family dining area which leads into a sun room. The space enjoys fine views over its garden and on towards Sheeps Tor and Ringmoor Down overlooking the Meavy valley. It opens onto a generous deep terrace which runs almost the entire length of the property’s rear elevation. Upstairs, there are four bedrooms including master and guest suite of which together with the third bedroom enjoy similar views.
Rough Torre sits in an approximately 0.4 acre of lawned gardens of private aspect, which are well-established and manageably planted with a carefully chosen range of woody plants that includes camellias, magnolias and rhododendrons.


Rough Torre is just a short walk from Yelverton Tennis Club, Bowling Green and Yelverton Memorial Hall. Yelverton village centre provides a useful selection of shops including a Cooperative supermarket, post office and petrol station, butcher, pharmacy, doctors surgery, dentist and vets.
There is an excellent watering hole just 20 minutes walk away at the Royal Oak, Meavy.
The property is located within the catchment area of a number of well-regarded schools including Meavy Church of England Primary School, Penmoor Nursery School (Yelverton Memorial Hall), Lady Modiford’s Church of England Primary School at Walkhampton and Horrabridge Community Primary School.
