Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Footaway is a pretty detached 1930’s built 4 bedroom family house set in the heart of its grounds. The property is well maintained and very
private, having no near neighbours, yet is only half a mile from the town centre. The house and grounds are surrounded by fields and woodland.

The accommodation on the ground floor comprises an entrance porch leading into an entrance hall with the staircase to the first floor, a triple aspect sitting room with an open fireplace and sliding doors to the gardens and a dual aspect dining room. The kitchen/breakfast room has wooden fitted units, a Belfast sink, integrated appliances and a dining area. A study, conservatory with access to the gardens and a cloakroom complete this floor.

Upstairs are four bedrooms and a family bathroom, all with views over the gardens and surrounding countryside. The dual aspect master bedroom has an en suite shower room.

Footaway is situated just outside the ancient
stannary town of Chagford, located in the heart of Dartmoor National Park. Dartmoor, with its
stunning countryside, attracts many people to the
area and provides a vast array of activities such as fishing, walking and cycling which are all within easy reach of the property.

Chagford offers a wide range of amenities, including churches, a part time Post Office, library, health centre and private dental practice and excellent sports facilities. There is a primary school, pre-school and Montessori. It was recently
mentioned in The Times as one of the most sought
after towns to live in. There is also a wide range of
shops, including a butchers, baker, village store,
delicatessen, ironmongers, wine merchant, art
galleries and a number of boutiques, pubs and cafes. The award-winning Gidleigh Park Hotel is
just over two miles away. Bovey Castle, three miles away, has a championship golf course and superb spa facilities.

Okehampton, approximately 8 miles away, has
extensive shopping facilities, two supermarkets, one of which is a Waitrose, Okehampton College, rated ’Outstanding’ by Ofsted and the Okehampton hospital with excellent health services and an A&E department.

Exeter, approximately 21 miles away is the most
thriving city in the South West and offers a wide
choice of cultural activities with the theatre, the museum, arts centre and a wealth of good shopping, including John Lewis, and restaurants.
Many primary and secondary schools can be found in Exeter including Exeter School and The Maynard whilst Exeter University is recognised as one of the best in the country.

The M5 motorway at Exeter provides links to the
A38 to Plymouth, the A30 (4 ½ miles away) to
Cornwall to the South, and Bristol and London to
the North and East. There are regular rail services
to London Paddington from Newton Abbot and
Exeter. Exeter International Airport provides
an ever increasing number of domestic and
international flights including two flights a day to
London City Airport.

Footaway is approached, through a gated entrance, over a private gravelled drive to a parking area for several cars with access to the house and the large, double height garage. The gardens surround the house and are mainly laid to lawn, interspersed with well-established trees and pretty flowering shrubs. There are seating areas enjoying the fantastic views over the surrounding countryside and Dartmoor and a natural leat running through. A decked terrace and gravelled seating area are accessed from the sitting room and conservatory and make an ideal space for ‘alfresco’ entertaining. A productive vegetable garden is found to the rear of the house with tiered gravelled paths and a trellis with climbing roses, alongside a gardeners shed. Two further sheds are used for storage and tools.
