Property Description

Full description


The Wilderness is positioned towards the upper end of East Street, in a hidden spot, within the historic South Dartmoor town of Ashburton.

Excellent local shops and amenities are within walking distance including: two butchers, artisan bakers, fish deli, cafes/restaurants, award winning delicatessen, Post Office and Lloyds Bank.

There are primary and senior state schools within the town as well as the independent Sands School. Stover School is just a fifteen minute drive away via the A38 Expressway which also gives quick, easy commutable access to the two Devon Cities of Plymouth and Exeter, and the national motorway network beyond.

The towns of Newton Abbot and Totnes (each around 7 miles) have comprehensive shopping centres and main line railways.

The scenic rugged landscape of Dartmoor is a couple of miles away and the South Devon coastline can be reached within around half an hour by car.


The Wilderness is an elegant period house, understood to have been built circa 1912 for local Seed Merchant, Edwin Tucker.

The accommodation, arranged over two floors, offers nicely balanced rooms with many interesting features including several marble fireplaces, corniced ceilings, a marble-lined bathroom and wood-panelled bedroom.

The property is virtually detached, being linked for a small part only to a neighbouring property - The Old Stables. The majority of windows have secondary double glazing and many rooms have radiators serviced by a modern gas fired boiler.

The extensive gardens and excellent parking facilities are a rare find for such a conveniently located town property.
