DESCRIPTION

An inspiring country home, this circa 1950's semi-detached dwelling is an exception due to the clever relationship between its architecture and aspect. It has been hugely enhanced by the addition at one end of an oak-framed living space, designed to take maximum advantage of the spectacular 270 degree views to be had over the surrounding pastoral landscape and Dartmoor National Park beyond.
This south facing home extends to nearly 130sq metres with generously sized rooms which have been enhanced and updated with thoughtful touches and now provide flexible modern living spaces. The original 17'+ dual aspect living room doubles up as a perfect guest suite as located off this, at the rear, is a shower room. The former dining room is now a cosy 'snug' with original parquet flooring, alcoves and a picture window which gives you a glimpse of what is to unfold as you pass the dual sided fireplace and step up into the dramatic and outstanding new day space.
Those few steps are transitional in all senses. The height gained creates a feeling that you are floating in the landscape within a majestically formed, vaulted 21' kitchen/dining/day room that is exquisite in its subtle yet thoughtful detailing, and how it relates to both the inside and outside spaces either via the raised terrace or the utility room.
The first floor accommodation remains true to its original layout with the landing window delivering the first impression of the views to be gained from the three bedrooms and bathroom. The stunning view starts over the rear garden and adjoining fields onto a few farmsteads, to the start of the River Burn Valley and on to Dartmoor. The main bedroom, to the front, gains a sweeping view around to the landmark of St Michael De Rupe church sitting on top of Brentor at 1100' above sea level.
The property sits at the head of a quad of two pairs of semi-detached houses, secluded, with its gable end facing onto the dramatic view in a beautifully detailed fifth of an acre garden, expertly planted for a long season of interest in a traditional 'cottage' style along with beds of soft fruit & vegetables.
