An outstanding example of a late 18th century Vicarage positioned beautifully within its exceptional garden. The garden has manicured lawns, pond with planting and a tennis court. The view of Dartington Estate woods can be seen in the distance. There are very few houses built with this perfect south-facing aspect.

The front aspect of the property has wonderful symmetry with sash windows framed by a beautiful veranda which is also noted in the listing supported by thin moulded columns with arched spandrels, topped with a slate roof.

You enter the house into a reception hall, which leads to a generous sitting room with central floor to ceiling window. From here you enter the formal dining room, a sunny light filled room with a pair of floor to ceiling sash windows, at the end of the room is an impressive working fireplace. The drawing room is a matching two window room again with a marble fireplace and slate hearth. There is a rear entrance where there are three doors, one into the four-car garage, a large utility and into the kitchen. An electric Aga welcomes you in and you are immediately drawn to the large sash windows with working shutters and the inviting window seat. There is also plenty of space for a dining table and chairs. Upstairs you have five generous bedrooms all with original windows and shutters. Picture rails are present in all rooms and two of the rooms have en-suites and there is one separate family bathroom. Off the first-floor landing is a doorway leading up to the second floor which is laid out as large living area but offers a versatile space and could be used as an additional bedroom, study or studio.

A magnificent boundary wall surrounds the property, again this is late 18th century and is slate rubble with rounded cement capping. It runs for 85 metres from the vicarage to the churchyard. There is a mounting block with four steps, an often-lost feature. The wall is 2-3 metres high offering lots of privacy. Alongside the wall is a stunning bed that is full of mature shrubs, a path runs the length taking you to a stone pillared gate which leads into the church yard. Beneath the path is a large flat lawned garden, perfect for croquet or the occasional marquee. On the east gable end there is a wooden lattice porch with a door that would have welcomed parishioners in to visit the vicar. On the wall here is a spectacular mature magnolia setting off the end of the house. The front of the house has a level grassed terrace that drops to a second terrace with a centrally located pond and steps down to the side with another terrace. The tennis court is all in good working order and was resurfaced approx. 10 years ago. There is a summer house positioned at the top of the terrace where you take in the garden below. Car enthusiasts will be excited by the triple door
generous garage that accommodates four cars.

This property offers a truly rare opportunity to buy a special family home positioned perfectly in its grounds in a very sought after village with the river just a hop and skip away.
