Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Rebuilt in 1991 for the present owners, Rydon Brake is a spacious modern home built in the traditional style with over 5,000 sq ft of accommodation and gardens and grounds measuring c.1.94 acres, all set in a peaceful and secluded position between the villages of Ogwell and Denbury.

The ground floor rooms radiate from an impressive hallway and upstairs a full-length bright landing leads to the main bedrooms, bathroom and sauna. An adaptable annexe above the garage has a kitchenette and shower room as well as separate access to the garden and has been used as a gym, snooker room and studio flat at different times by the current owners.

The gardens are well maintained and beautifully landscaped and provide outstanding views across the Devon countryside towards Dartmoor. There is a large sunny terrace to the rear giving access to the swimming pool and tennis court and at the top of the garden is a copse which is understood to be part of an original green lane.

The sweeping drive leading to the front of the property passes the paddock and stables (available by separate negotiation) and brings you to the generous parking and turning area and double garage with remote controlled doors. Further development is possible as plans to enclose the swimming pool with a 2-storey extension were passed some years ago.

Ogwell is on the outskirts of Newton Abbot which has a bustling centre with a very good range of shops, restaurants, cafes and a weekly market.

The A380 dual carriageway links Newton Abbot to Exeter and the coastal towns of Torquay, Paignton and Brixham, aptly named the 'English Riviera' in Victorian Times. The A38 Devon Expressway is also close at hand providing excellent links between the maritime port of Plymouth and the cathedral city of Exeter, where it joins the M5 motorway. Exeter airport has twice daily flights to London as well as flights to other UK cities and international/business destinations. The mainline railway station at Newton Abbot links the South West with London Paddington and Waterloo Eurostar.

Ogwell has superb access to one of Devon's greatest amenities, Dartmoor National Park, which is only a short distance away and provides opportunities for horse-riding and walking. Other leisure pursuits nearby include golf, tennis and wonderful sailing in the waters of Torbay.

Rebuilt in 1991, Rydon Brake is a spacious modern home. A sweeping drive brings you to the front of the property passing the paddock and stables (available by separate negotiation) and leading to a parking and turning area.

The gardens to the front provide an impressive outlook from the house, as well as wrapping around to the rear where a wooded area, seating and the tennis court are just a few of the features that make this such an attractive home.

A particular feature of the property is its commanding views across the rolling Devon countryside towards the 'Tors' of Dartmoor in the distance.

Rydon Brake has an impressive ENTRANCE HALL and staircase.

To the ground floor there is a good-sized KITCHEN/BREAKFAST ROOM with DINING ROOM off as well as a SNUG and a STUDY. A generous split-level, dual aspect DRAWING ROOM with feature fireplace and wood-burning stove enjoys stunning views across the parkland-like front gardens and has access to the terrace overlooking the swimming pool.

A GUEST SUITE is also laid out to the ground floor with its own EN SUITE and lovely outlook to the rear.

A UTILITY ROOM leads off the kitchen. From this a passageway leads to the DOUBLE GARAGE and has separate stairs to a very useful STUDIO/GAMES ROOM which has been used for a multitude of purposes. Alternatively this part of the house could be used as a self-contained ANNEXE as it has its own kitchen and shower-room as well as separate access to the garden.

A stunning MASTER SUITE with dual aspect offers a very large bedroom with walk-in DRESSING ROOM and EN SUITE BATHROOM. THREE FURTHER BEDROOMS all with stunning views over Dartmoor are laid out to the first floor and benefit from built-in wardrobes and eaves storage. There is a recently refitted FAMILY BATHROOM whilst a further SAUNA and SHOWER ROOM add those little extra touches to this lovely home.

The formal gardens extend to approaching 2 acres and have been landscaped to provide a mix of mature planted borders with a variety of trees and perennials and large areas of lawn. The gardens wrap around the property and to the rear is a full width block paviour patio. Steps lead up to the TENNIS COURT.

A superb tiled SWIMMING POOL (10x5m), pool house and changing room are located to the far side of the house.

The PADDOCK is available by separate negotiation and measures c.2.34 acres and has stabling for 3 horses plus tack room and its own water supply.
