Tenure: Freehold

A magnificent Grade II* Listed 17th century stone house with superb original features, 1 bedroom annexe and large detached barn, set in approximately 1.78 acres in a charming countryside location.

This superb Grade II* listed south facing property is situated in beautiful countryside between Totnes and Dartmouth and is packed with character features. It is approached through stone pillars leading to a parking area and most attractive walled garden. The wonderful entrance has an old solid wood door opening to the imposing reception room with the superb, mid 18th century staircase with a magnificent balustrade and handrail. There is a raised, slate fireplace with wood burning stove and original oven.

From the reception room a door opens into the beautiful drawing room, with many period features including a Devon limestone chimney. The impressive farmhouse kitchen leads down some steps to the dining room with an exposed stone chimney breast and fireplace.

The first floor landing leads to the stunning master suite, with a high vaulted ceiling and an exposed oak frame. There is en-suite bathroom with a spiral staircase rising to a mezzanine floor, ideal as a dressing room or study. The property has a further six bedrooms, two with en-suite bathrooms.

To the rear of the property is the self contained annexe, which would have originally been the kitchen, dairy and back stairs to the servants rooms. The annexe has a kitchen/dining room, sitting room, bedroom and bathroom and can be accessed via the house if needed. The east wing is accessed from the courtyard and is currently a games room.

There is a substantial two storey detached barn, which was formerly stabling and offers potential for development, subject to planning permission. Marking the entrance to the gravel driveway are stone pillars which lead to the parking area in front of the house. A charming pathway leads to a south facing walled garden and the front door.

There is also a south facing lawn area in front of the barn and a large paddock. Behind the house and leading off the master suite is a paved terrace with steps down to the courtyard outside the kitchen.
