Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Wilsworthy sits back from the road and is surrounded by its own land. The house is an original stone cottage that has been sympathetically extended to offer extensive accommodation to take advantage of the wonderful outlook over surrounding countryside, Dartmoor and the Haldon Hills. All the main rooms are double aspect and the property benefits from being un-listed.

Approached from the drive you are led up stone steps to a wide terrace with a stone barbeque. A pretty wooden and stone porch leads into the entrance hall with stairs to the first floor. Straight ahead are the boot room, - with door to the outside, downstairs shower room, family room - with log burning stove and an additional flight of stairs. To the left of the hall is the bright and spacious kitchen/breakfast room, a double length room featuring a skylight, dining area, bespoke wooden kitchen with built in appliances, granite work surfaces, induction hob and convection oven as well as a double oven Sandyford range. At the rear of the kitchen is a separate utility room with sink, storage and door to the rear.

To the right of the entrance hall is the lounge, with a large inglenook stone fireplace and log fire and the dining room with double doors leading into the conservatory room. The conservatory is carpeted and centrally heated and has stunning south easterly views over the gardens and ponds, swimming pool, tennis court and surrounding countryside. Steps lead into the gardens.

On the first floor there are four double bedrooms. The master bedroom suite with bath and shower room and fully fitted dressing room and the second bedroom which benefits from an ensuite shower room are on the south west aspect with the third and fourth double bedrooms on the South East and North West side.

Adjacent to the house steps lead to the first Annexe (the Cat Shed) currently used as an office, with ensuite shower room and far reaching views. The second and larger annexe (the Dog House) is off the drive with views over the duck ponds and also has an ensuite shower room, this is currently set up to accommodate a family of four.

Wilsworthy is situated on the Eastern edge of the Dartmoor National Park surrounded by farmland and 2 miles from Bovey Tracey and the A38. It is set back off a country lane and has exceptional views over the surrounding farmland and woodland. The open spaces of Dartmoor are only a short distance to the west.

The property benefits from an idyllic country location, yet 17 miles to the west is the county's capital Exeter. The city offers a wide choice of cultural activities with the theatre, the museum, arts centre and a wealth of good shopping and restaurants including John Lewis. There is also a Waitrose supermarket in the city.

The M5 motorway at Exeter provides links to the A38 to Plymouth or the A30 to Cornwall to the South and Bristol and London to the North and East. There are regular rail services to London Paddington from Exeter in just over 2 hours. Exeter International Airport provides an ever increasing number of domestic and international flights including flights to London City.

Outbuildings
The property has a number of outbuildings including triple garage with a barn, stables and log shed enclosing a large yard.

Grounds and Gardens
The drive arrives at the property and divides with one spur serving the yard with its outbuildings and the other spur leading up to the house and Annexes. There is a water garden adjacent to the yard and above this a large pond with staging and decking to take advantage of the views. A stream feeds the pond and water garden and then runs down to a number of picturesque duck ponds adjacent to the drive.
The house is supported by the immediate amenities of a heated swimming pool, hard tennis court, stables, paddocks and other outbuildings creating many opportunities for outdoor recreation on the doorstep.
At the lower end of the garden, safely enclosed behind timber railings, there is the leisure complex in a paved terrace with heated swimming pool, about 12m x 6m with steps and a Roman end. There is an adjoining pool house with kitchenette and WC. Adjacent to the swimming pool area is the hard tennis court, fully fenced and with a raised seating area.

Woodland
The woods total approximately 16 acres and lie principally behind the house. There is a network of rides and tracks, giving good access to the whole area which is mainly stocked with Douglas Fir, Ash, Beech, Oak and Chestnut. The woodland is habitat for roe deer and many native species which also provides stalking and shooting. A valley descends on the western side of the woodland, in which a spring provides the water for the ponds below. In addition to the woodland, there are three paddocks around the house served by the outbuildings off the drive.
