Full description

Two bed 19th century Victorian school house with PLANNING PERMISSION to enlarge into a 3 bed high spec dwelling in a popular Devon village. Rural village location, planning permission granted for a contemporary 3 bed house, countryside views, good sized plot, garage, parking and garden. EPC Band F.

Situation - The attractive popular village of Lutton lies within the glorious countryside of the South Hams, just outside the south western fringe of the Dartmoor National Park. Locally, the nearby village of Cornwood (approximately one mile) benefits from a primary school, small shop and post office, church and public house. The renowned Treby Arms gastro pub and Dartmoor Zoological Park are also close by in Sparkwell. Britain's ocean city, Plymouth, with all of its regional centre facilities, is only 10 miles away by car or public transport and the more local shopping centres of Plympton and Ivybridge are within easy reach and the A38 provides easy access to all parts of the region. The beautiful South Devon coastline is within a short drive and the city of Exeter and its airport are less than an hour away. The wide open spaces and natural beauty of the Dartmoor National Park can be accessed only a short walk from the property.

Description - Dating back to the 19th century, this former schoolhouse still retains some of its original charm in the shape of the old reading room. Planning permission has been granted which will keep this old charm and extend to create a wonderful 3 bedroomed, 3 bathroom house sitting on a good sized plot with garden, garage and views over the local countryside.

Accommodation - Approached from a quiet residential road on the edge of this pretty village, a 5 bar gate opens to the parking area, with plenty of space for parking and turning, which in turn leads to the detached garage. Currently a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom single storey house with the unique and spacious living space, the old reading room, which opens onto a small terrace, with pleasant rural views.
Approved plans remodel and extend the existing dwelling into a 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom family sized home, fusing old with new by retaining the stunning reading room. These can be viewed by using the following link:

Gardens & Grounds - There is currently a separate garage but the plans have the garage being incorporated onto the end of the extension. The gardens are a mixture of lawns, mature borders and beds, an orchard/vegetable area and parking. To the rear of the house is a small terrace with good views and aspect.
