Property Description

Full description

THE GLASS HOUSE is located towards the upper end of East Street, one of the main thoroughfares within this lovely old Dartmoor town.

Ashburton has a thriving local community and a great range of independent shops including butchers, patisserie/bakery, delicatessen, fish deli and greengrocers. There are numerous cafes, restaurants and inns, and in recent years the town has become a centre for antiques and crafts.

The rugged landscape of the open moor is just a few minutes car journey, and the A38 Expressway brings the cities of Plymouth and Exeter, with the M5 motorway link, within easy reach.

THE GLASS HOUSE is one of Ashburton's most distinctive and architecturally interesting Listed buildings.

Behind its bay-windowed and hung slate façade lies extensive accommodation, with many lovely period features including wall panelling/joinery, numerous fine fireplaces and plaster ceiling cornices.

This is harmoniously combined with some modern kitchen and bathroom fittings, gas fired heating with condensing boiler and secondary double glazing to the East Street elevation. There is some scope for refurbishment in places to further enhance the property.

The walled garden is laid out on two levels, with enclosed courtyard and patio seating areas giving access to a very private upper lawn.

Conditional planning has been passed for a stylish architect designed extension incorporating the courtyard with the ground floor accommodation, if desired.
