Full description

Firlee, we are advised, was designed and built in the mid 1980's by an architect for his own occupation and is a 'one-off' home attractively nestled into its moorland surroundings.

The accommodation is centred around a lovely living room with double height ceiling, gallery landing and feature stone fireplace with wood burner. The kitchen has been re-modelled in recent years with island unit and polished granite worktops. It has a dining area which connects through to the living room, giving a semi open-plan feel. Bedrooms are located in suites at either end of the building with two staircases. A full oil fired central heating system was also installed within the last five years.

Outside, superbly stocked, well tended gardens provide peaceful surroundings for Firlee and are planted with a wide variety of specimen plants and trees including some Fire Rhododendrons and Azaleas.

SITUATION
Firlee occupies a wonderful setting within Dartmoor National Park towards the end of a public bridle path, just below Haytor and Pinchaford Ball.

There is spectacular walking and riding country literally on the doorstep. Haytor Vale has an excellent public house and restaurant, The Rock Inn, whilst the nearby village of Ilsington has a village store, primary school, church, village hall, public house and Country House Hotel with a fitness centre.

The towns of Bovey Tracey (around 5 miles) and Ashburton (around 7 miles) each offer a good range of everyday shops and amenities, whilst the larger market town of Newton Abbot lies around 8 miles to the south. The A38 at Drumbridges, for Exeter and Plymouth, is about ten minutes by car.

DIRECTIONS
On approaching Haytor via the B3587 (Bovey Tracey/ Widecombe road) turn down over the cattle grid towards Haytor/Ilsington. After 0.7 of a mile you will reach Smokey Cross. Turn right here into the public bridle path and Firlee will be found towards the end on the left.
