4 bedroom detached house for saleMonks Cross, PL17 8HB
Formerly known as Luckett Station, until November 1966 the line transported both commodities and passengers. With the decline of rail travel in favour of road transport and the infamous Beeching cuts to the national rail system, the property was sold into private ownership and named Old Luckett Station. The current vendors of the property have sympathetically modernised the property while maintaining it`s charm to present a quite stunning family residence. To the front of the property is a large decked area where one can take full advantage of the stunning 180 degree view across open farmland and beyond to the hills of Dartmoor in the distance. The grounds have been landscaped and include formal garden areas, wildlife ponds and paddock area. The old waiting room and ticket office has been rebuilt as a replica of its former self and now houses a spacious leisure complex housing an indoor swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna, shower and cloakroom/WC. Ample parking is provided by the gravel drive leading to a large detached triple garage with an integral workshop/storage room that offers the potential to be converted into a self catering apartment, subject to the appropriate planning permission.
The property briefly comprises a covered storm porch with access to the utility room, an entrance hall with stairs leading to the first floor and access to the study, downstairs bathroom and kitchen. The kitchen comprises a range of base and eye level units with granite worktops and a panoramic rural view from its dual aspect windows.
