Situation - Springdown sits in a delightful and temporate 'sun trap' position in the desirable hamlet of Lowertown, just below Leusdon within Dartmoor National Park. The property is on the doorstep of equestrian facilities with superb accessible Moorland riding only a short distance from Springdown. The popular stannary town of Ashburton is merely 10 minutes away with a wide range of individual shops, delicatessens, bakeries and amenities, along with professional services including banks, medical practice, excellent local primary school and a secondary school at South Dartmoor Community College. There are endless recreational opportunities on Dartmoor and communications are easy on the A38/Devon Expressway linking to the M5 motorway network and mainline railway stations in Totnes and Newton Abbot provide direct links to London Paddington.

Description - Designed in the late 1990s by renowned Dartmoor Architect Alan van der Steen, Springdown combines modern insulation properties and large south and west facing windows to achieve much warmth - and also to provide fine views over the stunning gardens and the dramatic Dartmoor surroundings. Springdown sits in a generous private plot on the edge of the delightful and much sought after hamlet of Lowertown below Leusdon giving a tranquil rural feel, yet with several close neighbours and community at hand. This gorgeous contemporary home is immediately liveable, a blank neutral canvass for personal choice of paint colours and furniture design.
