Presented in immaculate condition throughout, this really is a very rare opportunity to purchase a stunning property which offers a delightful blend of period features and modern living accommodation. It really is a 'must see' home! With the original barn believed to date back over 200 years, this historic property is understood to have had links to Arthur Conan Doyle, the author of Sherlock Holmes and The Hound of the Baskervilles, who stayed in Park Hill House. The property boasts generous proportions with a flexible, interesting layout and could suit a 'two family' home, or purely as a wonderful family residence, offering excellent accommodation inside and out, along with easy access to Newton Abbot, Totnes and beyond.
On the ground floor there is a modern bespoke kitchen dining room with granite worktop and space for a dining table. Linked to the kitchen there is also a sun room which the family uses as the main access in and out of the property and also a utility area. There are two double bedrooms on the ground floor along with a superb shower room and a second living room with dining area. Two staircases rise to the second floor (via the inner hall and the living room). Occupying the majority of the first floor, is the simply stunning vaulted living room with exposed A' frames and painted stone walls combined with a contemporary wood burner and picture 'floor to ceiling' double glazed window overlooking the gardens, paddock, neighbouring countryside and out to Dartmoor in the distance, believed to be the inspiration of The Hound of the Baskervilles, at Buckfastleigh.This level also boasts a master bedroom, a second double bedroom used as a dressing room, and a contemporary bathroom with roll edge, claw foot bath, effectively creating a 'master suite'.
Externally, the property does not fail to disappoint! The front garden is laid to level low maintenance gravel. A side gate from the lane links to the rear via an enclosed kennel area and to the rear garden with a private lawn, substantial entertaining deck, ideal for alfresco dining, and leading to a detached triple garage, with remote door, power and lighting and photo voltaic panels and the parking area for four cars off a private drive with a five bar gate. Subject to the necessary planning permissions, the garage could be converted to provide auxiliary accommodation for a relative, or used as a home office. From the driveway, steps rise to a block of stables with vehicle access from a separate gate and in turn open out onto the paddock to the rear via a five bar gate, understood to be just under an acre, an ideal pony paddock, horse enclosure, hobby farm or a small holding and ideal for those looking for a 'slice of the good life'. There is also a run down block built outbuilding, ideal as a chicken shed and from the top of the paddock you can enjoy stunning, far reaching views out over the surrounding countryside.
