Situated in a wonderful elevated position with panoramic moorland views towards Chagford, this detached country period property full of character, is very accessible to the A30 to Exeter. The original house dating back to the 15 century was originally two cottages which were later joined to create one, three bedroom farm house with 2 reception rooms, conservatory, farmhouse kitchen, utility, family bathroom and downstairs cloakroom. More recently a self-contained 2-bed annexe has been added with a large kitchen/diner/family room, separate lounge, conservatory, utility, two double bedrooms and family bathroom. The house stands in total grounds of approximately 4 acres – this includes the paddock, orchard and gardens. There is a double garage, stone built shed and log store and a large Devon Contractors barn suitable for a variety of uses.
East Tordown has no close neighbours and is situated within the northern boundary of Dartmoor National Park between the villages of Whiddon Down, Drewsteignton and Chagford. Drewsteignton has a strong community with popular pub, post office/store and 15th century church. The ancient moorland Stannary town of Chagford has a larger range of amenities including specialist shops, village school, pubs, restaurants, doctors surgery, vets, and various sports clubs.
The A30 dual carriageway is 1.5 miles away at Whiddon Down giving easy access to Cornwall in the west and the university and cathedral city of Exeter in the east. Exeter has a wide range of amenities befitting a centre of its importance including excellent shopping, dining, theatre and sporting and recreational facilities. From Exeter there is good access to the M5, as well as mainline railway stations to London Waterloo and Paddington. Exeter International Airport lies about 4 miles to the east of the city.
The Dartmoor National Park with its many thousands of acres of unspoilt moorland countryside provides excellent opportunities for outdoor pursuits including walking, riding, cycling and fishing.
The house itself is believed to be several hundred years old and has a wealth of character, behind its thick rendered stone and cob walls, including some very substantial inglenook fireplaces, a wonderfully charismatic staircase, granite stone arched entrance, original exposed beams and kitchen with electric Aga. Despite its age and abundance of character features, the property is not Listed. The current owner has added a charming, self-contained 2-bedroom annexe with exposed feature beams, offering extended family accommodation or income potential.
In the original part of the house is a lovely sitting room with feature inglenook fireplace with bread ovens and inset wood burner, and exposed ceiling beams. Off this is a conservatory enjoying views of the garden and across to Dartmoor. The farmhouse kitchen has a range of fitted units with Aga and ample space for dining table and chairs. Of further note on the ground floor is a utility room and cloakroom, with rear porch.
The property is in good decorative order and benefits from oil fired central heating and solid wood windows throughout, replaced seven years ago.
