Situation - This superb property is situated in Horrabridge, on the edge of Dartmoor National Park. Horrabridge is a beautiful village with a medieval bridge and village green on the banks of the River Waklham. It is serviced by a selection of shops including a Post Office and Stores, bakery, fish and chip shop and art gallery as well as a Church, the popular village school and two pubs. Tavistock, a thriving market town rich in history and tradition dating back to the 10th century, is just 3.5 miles away to the northwest. Yelverton, with its parade of shops, GP and Veterinary Surgeries, fuel station, Post Office and various sports clubs, is only 2 miles to the southeast. Open moorland at Plaster Down is 1.5 miles to the north, leading onto the full expanse of rugged Dartmoor, which offers unlimited opportunities for walking, cycling, riding and exploring. The maritime city of Plymouth is 11 miles to the south and Exeter, via the A30, is 45 miles to the north. Both provide rail and motorway connections to the rest of the UK, whilst Exeter benefits from an International Airport and Plymouth from cross-Channel ferry services.
Description - This hugely interesting and attractive late-Victorian former school house, built in 1875 of local stone and slate, presents a wonderful lifestyle opportunity on the very edge of Dartmoor. With over 4,500 sq.ft of characterful and comfortable living accommodation, comprising a 5-bedroom house with adjoining 2-bedrooms cottage, the house is ideally utilised as an expansive family home but other possibilities are many and varied. Our clients currently let out all but two of the principal bedrooms at present, as well as the cottage. Additionally, we understand that there is planning consent to demolish the adjacent garage building and construct a new 3-bedroom detached holiday cottage, adding a further dimension.
Accommodation - The 4,500 sq.ft of accommodation, which is all extremely well-proportioned, is shown on our accompanying floorplan, but is briefly comprised as follows; entrance hall; study/office; dining hall; primary kitchen with adjoining utility and pantry; boot room; 39' reception room with patio doors to the garden; cloakroom; ground floor en-suite bedroom; two en-suite first floor bedrooms; two further bedrooms with separate bath/shower rooms, including an impressive master suite. The cottage is configured with a separate entrance, hallway, open-plan kitchen/reception room, shower room and two double bedrooms.
Outside - In front of the property is a large parking area with space for up to 8 vehicles plus a covered carport. A large lawned garden can be found at the rear of the house, ideal for an active family and potentially for small functions. A detached garage/store building lies adjacent to the house and planning consent has been granted to replace this with a detached, 2-storey holiday letting cottage. In all, the plot, as identified on our land plan, amounts to 0.519 acres.
The Guest House - The current owners have run the property as a guest house for 12 years and have established an excellent reputation, forming strong links within the local community. Repeat trade is strong and guests review their stays at an average of 4.9/5 stars on Google, 9.3/10 on Booking.com and 4.5/5 on Trip Advisor (as at February 2020). The room rates range from £80 to £120 per night, according to room size, with evening dining options. The cottage is currently let with a minimum stay of three nights, sleeping up to 6 people. We would recommend visiting the website, The Rateable Value is currently £5,000 (Feb 2021).
