Description
Within the moorland village of Dousland strands the imposing structure, built in 1907, that was formerly the Grange Hotel, whilst writing The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady, author Edith Holden, stayed here. One of three flat formed from its central portion is No. 7 on the top floor, recently refurbished, with three bedrooms. The property sits in a quiet residential area that offers easy access to open moorland as well as an excellent selection of local shops at Yelverton just a five minute drive away.
The immediate impression is of a bright and airy set of rooms with very fine views of the surrounding landscape especially to the north-east, towards the western tors of Dartmoor and Peak Hill. There are two staircases, the principal access from a beautiful tiled vestibule at the front of the building via a flight of stairs to a private entrance from the first floor landing, whilst the external and more utilised staircase leads from the rear garden rising directly to a covered porch and into the living room.
This generously proportioned flat provides a 28 ft. fitted kitchen/living space features a wood-burner and recessed bookcases plus insulated eave's storage. There is much borrowed light from a velux window in the large 23' boarded and insulated loft space above. Two doubles bedrooms open off this space whilst a third single bedroom is adjacent to the main entrance. This third bedroom features an unusual ceiling detail from the leaded cupola above as well as having a built-in raised bed with a desk area beneath and a 3 bay window from which lovely views are gained towards the Walkham valley. A family bathroom comes with an over-bath shower.
To the rear, there is a small lawned and level back garden with well-stocked granite set raised flower beds. There is also a single garage at the end of a block and parking.
