Property Description

Full description

This superb modern home occupies a delightful position on the banks of the river Mardle at Buckfastleigh. 'Michaelmas' is one of six executive houses found on the private development of Springfield Park. This property enjoys the unusual attraction of adjoining the Primrose Line of the South Devon Railway, a charitable Trust-run organisation providing a glimpse of the past with its steam locomotives. The Railway operates principally in the summer months for tourists.

Buckfastleigh is an historic mill town lying on the southern edge of the Dartmoor National Park. The town has interesting shops, a post office, small supermarket and good community activities combined with a primary school, churches and easy access to the A38 for Plymouth and Exeter, and the southern part of the moor.

Totnes lies approximately six miles to the south and has historic Elizabethan connections, mainline railway station and the river Dart for water sports.

'Michaelmas' was constructed in 2003 to a high specification with particularly light and airy accommodation.

A spacious reception hall with double height ceiling and galleried landing gives access to three reception rooms, a ground floor cloakroom and a large well equipped kitchen/breakfast room with plenty of cupboards and polished granite work surfaces.

There are four bedrooms, the two largest having built-in wardrobes and en-suite shower rooms. The remaining two bedrooms are served by a family bathroom with spa bath.

Outside, a smart brick paved drive with a pair of timber gates by Rattery Sawmills provides lots of parking and leads to a substantial, larger than usual, double garage.

The gardens have good expanses of lawns, mature trees and shrubs plus there is a wrap around sun deck which runs along the rear of the house, with access from the numerous patio/French doors making this the ideal home for entertaining. The sycamore and red cedar trees by the driveway are protected and provide a lovely parkland-like setting.
