DESCRIPTION
The charming and delightfully quirky vernacular form of this detached home attests to the social history of its village location. It was constructed in 1866, originally as a school master's cottage with adjoining classrooms that comprised a small village school. Further rooms were added in 1880 and like the other principal rooms overlooked what was once the playground, now the rear garden and fields beyond. As the need for a village school subsided the building was given over entirely to domestic living.
Next to a quiet village road between Tavistock and Lewdown, with a small front garden, the property is mainly stone-built with brick quoins and a natural slate roof. A covered front porch leads into the hallway, stairs accessing one half of the sleeping accommodation on the first floor of two bedrooms and a shower room whilst the ground floor a sitting room to the right, with a wood burner installed in its open fireplace. This, in turn, leads to the utility room with a further fireplace augmenting an exposed stone wall and a sink and fitted units adjacent to exterior access.
To the left of the entrance hall is the principal living area with its original herringbone 'parquet' flooring. This generous 25 ft. space is double-height and bathed in natural light from pairs of French doors on both the ground floor and in a 'Juliet' opening on the mezzanine above which is accessed via spiralled iron and timber staircase (which offers future potential for further accommodation). A stunning feature of this room is a full height exposed stone chimney breast with period timber mantle and wood burner. The space also boasts attractive bespoke kitchen joinery by John Lewis with integral Aga-style Alpha range cooker and boiler.
Off this living space, double doors lead into what was formerly a classroom now providing a ground floor bedroom wing comprising a master and en suite bathroom overlooking the rear garden and further bedroom and bathroom; both bathrooms enjoy under-floor heating.
The outside space offers parking at the side of the property with a good sized level garden at the rear than faces west taking full advantage of the afternoon and evening sun. Bounded on three sides by stone walls the garden has been very attractively landscaped with lawn, flower borders, an arched walkway and vegetable garden and is overlooked by a paved terrace. There is also a lined timber outbuilding and lock store behind which might be relocated to allow space for a garage (subject to planning)
