Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Named after the Firs that surround it, Sitka Lodge has stood overlooking both Bodmin and Dartmoors for some 13 years. With its high ceilings, Galleried landing and central feature staircase, not to mention the huge dimensions of the rooms, one could be forgiven for thinking the home is Georgian, especially given the amount of light that pours in through the sash windows. It is not easy to replicate the character home we all seek in a modern property, but this home does it so well. It is not the through fireplace and burning stove between the Sitting and Dining Rooms, nor is it the hotplate stove in the kitchen, the under floor heating, or indeed the pretty stone walls. It is the fact that the home conjures memories and visions of the perfect Christmas. It is perhaps what we all have envisaged with a move to a perfect home, a house full of people, a grand tree in the hall and the sound of laughter. The home houses three generations currently and offers something for them all.

Is it perfect then? No. Like all homes there are compromises. There is a relatively busy road in front of it. I say relatively as it is a Devon road and therefore not busy by comparison to Surrey or London for example. Once in the home, that fear is set aside by the sheer size of it for the money and the unrivalled views which steal your attention.
The home would appreciate floor coverings on the stairs and landing, and some are well used, and could do with an update. Having three generations living there, there are a lot of items, but these will be removed as we go. The windows could do with a coat of sadolin and the exterior render a lick of paint. The gardens are now too much for the current owners for reasons you will see when you visit. Other than that, it really could be perfect.

Assuming a lack of neighbours, grounds approaching an acre, large outbuildings, immediate access to a bridleway and close proximity to amenities, easy access to the City of Exeter and the A30 are on your tick list - you may have a winner.

You wont know until you look and get a real feel for the home. I would encourage you to do so as soon as possible. This home ticks 9 out of 10 of the most commonly asked for attributes. Viewings are by appointment and available immediately.
