Tenure: Freehold

This substantial, detached family home, is located in a sought after area, close to the centre of Bovey Tracey. It offers five/six bedrooms arranged over two floors, beautiful and extensive rear gardens and a workshop/garage. Beautifully presented throughout, this fabulous family home is spacious and versatile and must be viewed in order to fully appreciate all that is on offer.

A wide, brick-paved driveway opens out in front of the property, providing ample off-road parking and leads to the entrance porch. With a vaulted glass roof, this room is extremely light and airy. It has built-in storage along its length and an attractive and practical laminate floor. The entrance hallway has wood laminate flooring and feels warm and welcoming. A staircase with pine banister leads to the first floor and there are doors to a convenient WC, three bedrooms and the kitchen which opens into the dining room and living room beyond.

The kitchen is a lovely room, it has a pine-panelled ceiling with spotlights and a skylight and with two more windows, it is spacious and light. There are a variety of teal-coloured kitchen units which complement the solid wooden worktops perfectly and provide ample storage space. There is also a double corner sink and an integrated double fan oven with a separate gas hob. A door to the rear leads into an L-shaped utility room, which houses the boiler and has worktops with a butler sink and space, with plumbing for washing machine etc. From here a door gives access to the workshop which has plenty of shelving, light and a door to the front driveway. This versatile space could easily be converted back into its original form, as a garage, if required. The dining room has solid-pine flooring and double doors which open out into the garden, a fabulous wood burning stove and two sets of French doors lead down a step into the wonderful living room. Sunlight pours in through the southwest-facing windows making the spacious room feel warm and welcoming. It has attractive solid maple flooring and an impressive fireplace with a slate hearth and elegant pine mantel housing a wood-burning stove, a wonderful and practical feature. Double doors open out onto the patio, extending the inside space, outside.

From the hall, a door leads to the master bedroom with a large en-suite bathroom, containing both a bath and a shower, WC and basin. Bedroom two/the second reception room is another light, double room which the current owners use as a hobbies room. Bedroom three benefits from an en-suite wet room containing a large bath, shower and basin. This room also has disabled access to the bath and bed with a ceiling track and hoist.

To the first floor, there are three more spacious double bedrooms, one of which is currently used as a study. The bedrooms are all filled with natural light from the additional Velux windows and there is plenty of storage space within the eaves. The family bathroom also has a skylight and has a bath, WC and basin.

Outside, the garden is fabulous. A large paved terrace has a timber veranda providing shade, with fruit-bearing grape vines climbing the vertical supports and along the rafters. A stunning venue for outside dining, a family barbecue perhaps or simply enjoying the tranquillity and beauty of the garden. A large lawn continues to the boundary bordered by a wide variety of colourful mature shrubs, bushes and plants. There are also apple and plum trees, a lovely magnolia, a greenhouse and a couple of sheds. Raised beds for growing vegetables, neatly trimmed hedges, and much more.

This wonderful property must be seen first-hand in order to appreciate all it has to offer.

What the owner loves most..
"The garden is so peaceful, yet we are so close to the town and bus service".

Bear in mind...
Although situated on a road, once in the property or out in the rear garden you feel as if you are in the middle of the country with a Mediterranean feel.
