The Property
A RARE OPPORTUNITY TO PURCHASE A FORMER RAILWAY STATION HOUSE NESTLED ON THE SLOPES OF KIT HILL WITH SIMPLY STUNNING PANORAMIC VIEWS ACROSS DARTMOOR AND THE CORNISH COUNTRYSIDE.

A truly fantastic family home, set in approximately 2.5 acres, Old Luckett Station offers privacy & seclusion, without being remote, in a dramatic setting overlooking the Tamar Valley. The property has a large garden of great character with stunning views, pony paddocks, a fabulous indoor swimming pool with spa and sauna and a generous decking area from which to enjoy the breathtaking scenery.

The old Waiting Room and Ticket Office has been rebuilt as a replica of its former self and now houses a spacious leisure complex. On the opposite platform, the main house invokes a 'wow factor' as one could easily imagine the trains stopping to pick up passengers before the line was finally closed in 1966.

Immaculately presented, the house contains a comprehensively fitted kitchen enjoying panoramic views over the valley, a spacious lounge with dining area and a conservatory leading off, a home office or 4th bedroom with adjacent bathroom, while upstairs there are three generous-sized double bedrooms, two with en-suite facilities as well as the family bathroom adjacent to bedroom 3 that has a balcony affording stunning far-reaching views.

The beautiful gardens surrounding the house incorporate wildlife ponds and a variety of seating areas, as well as a private studio offering independent living accommodation or a separate home office base with en-suite facilities. There is also a large greenhouse, a field shelter and two large workshops. To the front of the house there is a large detached triple garage with an integral workshop/storage room that could easily be converted into a self catering apartment, subject to the appropriate planning permission.

This really is a unique family home in a truly unforgettable and historic setting and properties of this type rarely come to the market.
