DESCRIPTION The entrance of Little Bradley House is a lovely first impression and sets the scene for the whole house. Stepping into the lobby you'll soon realise that this is a home full of quality, with everything having been done to a very high standard using the finest materials. The entrance hall for example has a reclaimed French oak sleeper floor, and the floor coverings throughout are all 100% wool carpets or Amtico flooring.

There is plenty of space for all the family both with bedroom space and living accommodation. On the ground floor, there is an impressive living room with open fire and views out over the gardens, you can access the garden terrace via a porch from here. A door from the sitting room links to a lounge with open fire and views over the garden, this room has a lovely cosy feel and gives access to the beautiful spacious conservatory. Currently used as a dining room, it is a superb addition to the house and wraps around the side of the house to give access to the kitchen breakfast room.

The handmade custom kitchen has lots of storage and granite worktops and has a beautiful glazed extension which floods the room with light, it has a lovely outlook which looks over the gorgeous walled cottage garden. There is access from here to a utility room, separate WC and out into the cottage garden.

Upstairs there are four generous double bedrooms and a large bathroom complete with steam room. The master suite is on the top floor, a large welcoming space with exposed beams and lovely views out over the gardens and neighbouring fields. The suite has a sitting area, dressing area and ensuite facilities.

The house also has a two-bedroomed cottage, which although needs updating, could create superb guest accommodation, or could provide potential rental income if kitchen facilities were installed. It has a large reception room with fireplace on the ground floor and two bedrooms and bathroom on the first floor.

Linking the cottage to the lobby of the main house is a pitched conservatory space which is currently set up as a useful office.

Our clients have developed the gardens from a few grass lawns into what is now a series of feature areas including a bog garden linking the house to the stables, a wildlife pond, traditional rose garden, herbaceous beds and a very pretty and secluded walled cottage garden.

Next to the cottage are the old stables, not currently used for anything other than storage. Set in two blocks on opposite sides of a courtyard.  

SELLERS COMMENTS Our client's aim was to maximise the house, gardens and stunning location and create a unique equestrian home for their family. Over the years, they have painstakingly refurbished the house and built the stables to accommodate their yearlings and young horses close to home. They have certainly achieved exactly what they set out to do. The attention to detail and the quality, in the home, gardens and stables is superb.

When designing the interior, they were keen to inject a combination of traditional and contemporary styles, and everything has been carried out to exacting standards, from the sourcing of original French sleepers for the hall floor to the meticulous laying of each individual cobble in the stable yard.

The stables and yard were carefully designed and thought out, with 17 stables in all, along with sand school, feed room, tack room, office, facilities and 11 acres of land split over three paddocks.

Selling Little Bradley House has been an incredibly difficult decision, and understandably so. The property is truly very special indeed. This really is a unique opportunity to buy an equestrian home on the edge of Dartmoor National Park which is still very accessible.

 

EQUESTRIAN FACILITIES Our clients designed and built this superb stable yard to the side of Little Bradley House to the highest standards, with 16 stables, mare and foal stable, feed room, tack room, office, kitchen and facilities and a sand school. The 11 acres of paddocks are all close by and have auto filling water troughs.
 

LOCATION Situated just outside Dartmoor National Park and less than a mile from the bustling town of Bovey Tracey, (known locally as the gateway to the moor) where there is an excellent range of local amenities. These include a health centre, restaurants, public houses, a primary school, post office and a bank etc.

The market town of Newton Abbot is approximately 15 minutes' drive away where there is a comprehensive range of shops, a mainline railway station (London Paddington approximately 2.5 hours). The A38 dual carriageway provides access to Plymouth to the South and Exeter to the North and the M5 motorway is approximately 5 minutes away. Exeter international Airport is approximately 30 minutes away.

The costal resorts of Teignmouth and Shaldon can be reached in about 20 minutes and Torquay with its Marina is approximately 30 minutes away. 

EQUESTRIAN COMMENT This exceptional home is perfect for a growing family, whilst offering fantastic equestrian facilities for those who have a love for horses. Situated in a stunning rural location, on the edge of Bovey Tracey, the property is nestled within the countryside, surrounded by gardens and paddocks. Little Bradley is positioned in a great location for venturing out of the yard on hacks, being only a short distance to local bridle paths linking to the local common, surrounding villages and even Dartmoor itself.

The stables are approached via a five-bar timber gate, off the main driveway to the house, offering a spacious open hard standing parking area, which is great for enabling convenient parking for horse boxes and providing other vehicular access.

The main stable block has been individually designed with stylish cobble decoration and features an island with planting and topiary horse. The facilities provide 16 loose boxes, mare and foal box, tack room, feed room, office, store and WC.

A sand school is located to the front of the stable block, providing an ideal lunge area. This is not a full-size ménage, but there is scope to create one. There are three separate fields, two of which can be accessed across the quiet country lane, combining to 11 acres, all paddocks are enclosed and have auto filling water troughs.

Located to the other side of the main house, there are 5 further stables, which are adjoined to the cottage, these would have been the original stables to the property which are traditionally built.
