A STUNNING gentleman's residence situated on the outskirts of Yelverton standing in ONE ACRE. Perfect for entertaining, private grounds, stables, garaging and outbuildings, 3736 square feet of accommodation, beautifully presented, exceptionally private. EPC Band G.

Situation - The property lies on a private road on the rural outskirts of the attractive moorland village of Yelverton and within walking distance of the wide range of shops and other facilities available. Further afield is the delightful and popular ancient market/stannary town of Tavistock. The area has an excellent choice of first class independent and grammar schools located in Tavistock and Plymouth. The Dartmoor National Park, with its 368 square miles of spectacular scenery and rugged granite tors, is literally on the doorstep. This heather clad moorland, with deep wooded valleys and rushing streams, provides unlimited opportunities for walking, riding and fishing. Sporting pursuits in the area are second to none, the south coasts of Devon and Cornwall, with their beautiful estuaries, beaches and coastal walks, are within easy reach as well as the rugged coastline of North Cornwall.
Follow the Tamar Estuary past Derriford Hospital and the maritime port of Plymouth will be found, with direct links to London and excellent facilities for sailing, including comprehensive marina provision and access to some of the finest uncrowded waters in the country.

Description - In a remarkably private setting this extremely impressive detached residence is representative of a very fine family home. This substantial house is laid out over three levels and is located on the edge of Yelverton, the gateway to the Dartmoor National Park.
The house dates back to around 1880 with later additions and retains many original features. It is beautifully presented and is in very good condition, having been the subject of a substantial amount of work in recent years. Many large light rooms with high ceilings and views over the pretty parkland gardens are a major feature of Heath Cottage.
There are numerous outbuildings including: double garage, stables and tack room that offer much potential (subject to the relevant permissions), greenhouse and log store as well as an artist's studio in the basement. Heath Cottage offers excellent entertaining space and represents a fine lifestyle investment.

Accommodation - Crossing the threshold, an enormous vestibule welcomes you and offers the opportunity to be another reception room, playroom or home office, if needed. The entrance hall leads to the principle reception rooms and stairs rise to the first floor and to the utility room.
The interiors are well laid out and flow from one light and airy room to another. The kitchen is beautiful, with Aga and appliances allowing plenty of space for a large breakfast table and is perfect for informal supper parties. At the other side of the house is a double reception room, loosely arranged as sitting and formal dining. This really is a terrific room, with tall ceilings, large picture windows and splendid views over the pretty gardens and to Dartmoor in the distance. A wood burning stove, creates a warming atmosphere, and offers a focal feature.
To the first floor there are five bedrooms that share the family bathroom, the master bedroom has its own en suite facilities. To the second floor there are two further bedrooms, one of which is currently used as an artist studio. The views to Dartmoor from the upper floors are spectacular.
There is a sizable basement area, which has recently had the floor lowered to increase the ceiling height. This again is currently used as an artist studio but obviously has the possibility of other uses.

Gardens & Grounds - These stunning landscaped gardens offer a wealth of potential; they extend to 1.327 acres and are bordered by a small leat. The walled Victorian garden is laid out to flower beds, a rockery and lawn. Beyond this are level areas that could be used for grazing. Currently there are some raised vegetable beds and a productive orchard.
There is substantial room for parking and turning at the entrance to the property attractively laid in granite stone sets. Heath Cottage enjoys an extensive range of outbuildings including stabling and double garage offering numerous opportunities of usage or storage. It is believed that there might be a development opportunity in the north east section of the garden, subject to the appropriate planning permissions.
