Tenure: Freehold

Approached through a wooden gate via a
gravel drive, 1 Hele House stands in an elevated
position with stunning south facing views over
the gardens and surrounding countryside. It
maintains many original features including high
ceilings, cornicing and windows.

Several steps lead you through the main
entrance into a spacious hall with stairs leading
to the first floor and the main reception areas
on either side. To the left is the bright dining
room featuring a wood burner with a marble fire
surround and a large bay window overlooking
the gardens and views. An archway takes
you through to the kitchen with a double oil
fired Aga and onwards into the walk in larder
and separate laundry room, which also has a
secondary electric oven and hob.

To the right of the entrance hall is the sitting
room, again with a large bay window and
Ashburton marble fire surround. Ahead of you
from the entrance hall is an additional utility
room, downstairs WC and a log store which
houses the boiler.

Upstairs on the first floor is the master bedroom
suite, including a dressing room and ensuite
bathroom. This bedroom also connects with
another room, currently a single bedroom. Two
further double bedrooms, a family bathroom
and separate WC complete this floor. A door
from the dressing room leads to the stairs to
the second floor and stairs back down to the
ground floor. A door leads outside to the garden
and cobbled seating area.

On the second floor are three further bedrooms,
a bathroom and plenty of eaves storage
space. This is currently used as additional
accommodation for extended family stays but
with the separate access through the back (side)
door, it could be made into an annexe or flat.

The house enjoys outstanding views over the
surrounding countryside and although in a tranquil
rural location, the property is only a mile from
access to the A38 dual carriageway at Ashburton.

The former stannary town of Ashburton,
approximately a mile from the property, has
a lively range of shopping facilities, with a
range of independent shops offering vintage
goods, antiques, a family-run ironmonger's, a
delicatessen, an artisan bakery, a fish deli and
the renowned Ashburton Cookery School.

Exeter, 20 miles away, offers a wide range
of cultural and recreational facilities with the
Princesshay shopping centre and recently
opened John Lewis store, several leisure
centres, theatres, cinemas, the Royal Devon
& Exeter Hospital and the Nuffield Hospital.
There are mainline train services from Exeter
to London Paddington and Waterloo and
international and domestic flights, notably to
London City Airport from Exeter Airport.
The property is also well located to take
advantage of a number of excellent independent
schools, including Exeter School, the Maynard
School, a new Steiner Academy in Exeter and
Mount House, Devon's leading prep school and
Kelly College near Tavistock. Exeter also has a
fine university.

The historic naval port of Plymouth is 25 miles
away and offers extensive cultural, recreational
and educational facilities including three
theatres, Drakes Circus shopping centre, many
sporting facilities and a fine university. The
Barbican area has retail art galleries, numerous
bars and eating places including Tanners and
The Barbican Kitchen and there is the River
Cottage Canteen at Royal William Yard and Gary
Rhodes at the Plymouth Dome. The port has
regular cross-Channel ferry services to Brittany
and northern Spain.

Grounds and Gardens
Hele House sits overlooking its south facing
lawned garden and paddock. The garden has
flowering borders and many established trees
and shrubs. To the east of the property lies a
cobbled area and garden with seating area and
three greenhouses.

To the east of the house there is a separate
garage, a barn, currently used as a workshop
and for garden machinery storage. The stables
at the top of the garden are a wooden walled
construction with a concrete floor. It has four
stables and a tack room.
