Situation - Trusham Heights sits in a secluded spot in the Teign Valley village of Trusham, which is tucked away on the eastern slopes of the Haldon Hills.

The larger village of Christow (5 miles) has a doctor's surgery, post office/village store, pub, primary school (Ofsted - good), parish church and community centre. From Trusham there is convenient access to the A38 which provides excellent communications with the rest of Devon. The property is situated approximately a mile from the boundary of the Dartmoor National Park which is renowned for its spectacular scenery and its many thousands of acres of unspoilt moorland countryside in which to enjoy a range of outdoor pursuits including walking, riding, cycling and fishing. There is golf at the Teign Valley Golf Club nearby. There are also excellent walks in the nearby woods of Haldon Hill, where there is also Exeter Racecourse. The property is within easy reach of the beautiful South Devon coast with its beaches and estuaries.

Description - Trusham Heights is a substantial former mid-Victorian Rectory offering spacious 5 bedroom accommodation with a substantial annexe adjoining which could either be incorporated into the main house as additional accommodation, or could form a further 3 bedroom dwelling either as separate accommodation for an extended family or dependent relatives, or for letting including holiday lettings or home office accommodation, subject to the necessary consents. Overall the accommodation amounts to over 4,400sq ft.

Accommodation - The entrance porch has attractive stained glass leaded light panels and door to the entrance hall. The drawing room has two large bay windows, timber fireplace with inset wood burner and parquet flooring. The formal dining room has a marble fireplace, parquet flooring and picture rails. From here is access to a wine cellar. The kitchen has an oil-fired Aga with a number of fitted eye and base level units with space for several appliances.

On the first floor are five bedrooms one with en suite shower room together with family bathroom.

The main part of the house does require modernisation.

On the first floor are two bedrooms and a further former kitchen as well as a former bathroom. There are two further rooms in the attic together with a cellar.

The gardens are laid mainly to lawn with a wide range of mature shrubs and trees. There is a small store to the side of the annexe with access to the gently sloping paddock which runs up to the top with excellent views. Further views could be restored with some tree felling. Behind the house is an area of woodland together with a fruit and vegetable garden plus greenhouse. Overall the property amounts to 2.75 acres.
