VENDOR COMMENTS As locations go, there cannot be many that could equal the setting on the Warleigh Estate of this fabulous home, with its sweeping lawns down to the edge of the River Tavy.

“In 2005, we purchased a derelict two bedroom cottage on this site which was demolished then, working closely with a renowned architect, the perfect home was designed.” says Neal “Using my previous experience in house building and having a keen interest in the environment, I included into the design many of the ideas and techniques learned throughout my career. Much use has been made of wood, which is all from sustainable forests, a ground source heat pump provides hot water, plus a ‘whole house’ fresh air system, all helping to give the house the top efficiency rating that can be achieved. I thought about every minute detail during construction, the result being, this brilliant, contemporary family home containing every conceivable luxury and comfort. The open living space has proved to be perfect for the hustle and bustle of family life, with the snug or games room being perfect for children and their friends. Not to be outdone, a snug is also part of the design of the master bedroom, a superb retreat.”

“Large folding doors from the living space lead onto a spacious sunny terrace, which is a fantastic place for outside dining or quiet relaxation, especially with a glass of cold beer, enjoying amazing views across the river and beyond, watching stunning sunsets, or just listening to the sounds of wildlife from the nearby nature reserve. Fishing is possible from the foreshore at the end of the garden and mooring rights are also enjoyed.”

“Tamerton Foliot is just minutes from the house and is where schools, shops and other facilities, including a new leisure centre, are located and it is just a fifteen minute drive into Plymouth for a wider range of facilities, including a main line station providing a service into London Paddington. The house is also near to the A38 trunk road for journeys to explore and enjoy this wonderful location.”

“I do feel a great sense of pride in this house and shall miss everything about living here.”
