SITUATION A substantial family house with annexe requiring update and improvement offering a rental income/annexe potential with approximately 1.5 acres of paddock and formal gardens and several sizeable outbuildings conveniently situated along a leafy country lane a short drive from Yelverton and Plymouth City.


Yelverton has a useful selection of shops, including the Coop supermarket, delicatessen, hairdressers, garage and hotel. The ancient stannary town of Tavistock is around 6 miles to the north, with the historic naval port of Plymouth about 10 miles to the south. Yelverton has regular bus services to both Tavistock and Plymouth, where the national rail network provides connections to London and countless other destinations. Plymouth also has cross-channel ferry services to both France and Spain.

Sporting and Leisure facilities throughout the region are excellent – the Cornish beaches are within striking distance, and with Dartmoor National Park extending to over 300 square miles of stunning open countryside is on your doorstep, so there is plenty for the outdoor enthusiast to find. Sailing and other water sports are available within the Tamar and Tavy estuaries, and there are golf courses at Yelverton and Tavistock with numerous others throughout the region. There are also opportunities to fish by arrangement on the rivers Tamar, Tavy and Walkham.

DESCRIPTION An enviably positioned 4 bedroom period family house which provides scope for update and improvement and priced to take into account works required. Built originally, we believe, in the 1800s in the traditional manner there is also the benefit of an attached two bedroom cottage (date unknown) which currently provides rental income/annexe potential. The property has a considerable number of useful outbuildings including a detached barn which is understood to be constructed circa 14th/15th Century. The property has approximately 1.5 acres of land which is separated into formal gardens with a westerly aspect and heated swimming pool, outbuildings including further barns, hay stores, garages, car port and pigsties with connected courtyard leading to the paddock. The garden continues down into an orchard with some fruit trees and a collection of around 200 different varieties of daffodil which gives a wonderful display in the spring. The house benefits from solar panels which are located on the old barn roof with an annual income we understand of approximately £1,000. There are oil fired Aga range cookers in both the house and cottage supplying hot water and cooking facilities. Wood burning stoves complement the main rooms of the house. The accommodation in the main house comprises of a drawing room; kitchen/diner; utility/boot room; garden room; master bedroom with en-suite; 3 further bedrooms; family bathroom and shower room. The attached cottage comprises sitting room; kitchen/diner; utility room; store; cloakroom; two bedrooms and bathroom.
