Property description

Tenure: Leasehold

A spacious first-floor apartment with two double-bedrooms, a garage and parking, in the historic and grade II listed, Devon house, formerly The Devon House of Mercy, a refuge for fallen women, established in the 1860's and converted to residential accommodation following WWII, in the sought-after moorland town of Bovey Tracey.

A tarmac driveway continues round to the rear of the building to a residents' parking area and a door leads into the communal entrance lobby, which has an original decoratively tiled floor and a turning staircase rising to the upper floors, leading to the entrance of the apartment on the first floor.

Inside, it is well-presented with light and neutral decor throughout, is spacious and has plenty of character with wonderful architectural features such as gothic arched windows, high ceilings and thick stone walls, and feels warm and welcoming with gas and community central heating.

The roomy entrance hallway is carpeted and has an inset hessian doormat, and a door leads into the kitchen, which is an unusual shape and has a wood-effect laminate floor. It is well appointed, with plenty of wood-effect worktop space, tiled splashbacks, and a range of white fitted units and shelving providing ample storage. It has a stainless-steel circular sink with a mixer tap beneath the window, a fan oven with a five-burner gas hob and stainless-steel filter hood above, there is space beneath the worktop for a fridge, freezer and dishwasher.

A utility area has a worktop with a tiled splashback, storage units, and space with plumbing beneath the worktop for a washing machine, and a wall mounted condensing combi-boiler provides the hot water and heats one radiator in the hallway. The remaining rooms are heated by cast-iron radiators on a building-wide heating system.

The wonderful living room is carpeted and spacious, with a high ceiling that adds to the sense of space. It has two fabulous feature windows with gothic arches, filling the room with light and from where there are fabulous views over the grounds. There a picture rails, and there is plenty of room for dining table and seating for six or more places, ideal for any occasion.

The master bedroom is a generously sized double with a feature window to the front and the second bedroom is another excellent double with a window to the rear, currently used as a study, ideal for those working from home. A modern shower room is fully tiled, containing a large shower enclosure, a WC, a chrome heated towel rail, and a vanity unit with an inset basin, storage beneath for toiletries and a medicine cabinet above with a mirror door and feature lighting.

Outside, there is a single garage in a nearby block, one allocated space in the residents' carpark at the rear, and at the front of the property there are a number of visitors parking slots. The communal grounds are an added attraction, beautifully maintained with manicured lawns, impressive trees, a wide variety of bushes, shrubs and plants, and several benches, allowing residents to sit and enjoy the tranquil surroundings.
