The Property
Oak House is a beautifully presented property that lies within a little known valley and while the property is neighboured, charming views, together with peace and quiet, give the distinct feeling of being within the heart of the country.
The accommodation is particularly light and well laid out. A large galleried hallway provides access to generously proportioned rooms, together with a well appointed kitchen/breakfast room, comfortable snug and study. Impressive fireplaces, woodburner and exposed beams provide character and warmth to the property. There are 5 bedrooms with the master and guest bedroom having en-suite facilities, while a family bathroom, with a
sauna, service the other 3 bedrooms. From virtually all the rooms there are lovely views over the landscaped gardens, grounds and neighbouring countryside. Within the curtilage there is a very impressive detached bungalow providing open plan accommodation and 2 bedrooms. There are glorious gardens and grounds, together with stables and double garage with ample parking.
West Ogwell is located on the outskirts of the historic town of Newton Abbot, which is set on the banks of the Teign Estuary.
Newton Abbot is served by the A380 dual carriageway linking it to Exeter, its nearest cathedral city. The charming medieval town of Totnes is only some 10 - 15 minutes away, with all of its facilities, which include excellent shops, restaurants and schools. The A38 Devon expressway is also close to hand, providing excellent communications between Plymouth and Exeter, where it joins the M5 motorway. There is the added advantage of the mainline railway station at Newton Abbot and Totnes, which links the South West with London Paddington and Eurostar. Newton Abbot benefits from a bustling shopping centre with a very good range of shops, restaurants, weekly market, cafes and a choice of inns. West Ogwell also has superb access to three of Southern England's greatest amenities, Dartmoor National Park, Torbay and the South Hams.
