Situation Stone Lodge is pleasantly situated on the edge of ever-popular Bishopsteignton. A nearby footpath crosses lovely meadows and leads to an appealing estuary beach. The village has a strong sense of community, being set above and beside the beautiful Teign Estuary. The village has many local amenities to include a Post Office/store, a chemist, a garden centre, a church, a village hall, two public houses, a local real ale brewery, a vineyard and the Cockhaven Manor Hotel. Additionally there is a well-regarded primary school. The seaside town of Teignmouth is around 2-miles away, with its promenade having a classic Georgian crescent, a sandy beach and a wide range of shops and amenities to include a Waitrose store, a mainline railway station, a secondary school; Trinity School offering private education and many cafes and restaurants etc. The estuary offers good boating opportunities and Teignmouth golf course is only 2-miles away. Good accessibility is enjoyed to the A380, making for a fast commute to the Cathedral City and county town of Exeter with its International Airport and University. 

Description Stone Lodge is an excellent home, having once been the lodge house to the rather grand Bishopsteignton House. There is a stone pillared and gated entrance, giving a sense of past grandeur to the drive approach. The property has something of an interesting contrast with the characterful accommodation of the original lodge house melding into a beautifully finished owner architect-designed single storey extension with free-flowing light and spacious reception rooms being arranged around an elegant luxury kitchen area with these spaces opening to and interacting with the beautiful gardens and grounds. There are good views from many of the windows towards the estuary, countryside and the sweeping lawns and outside spaces. As well as the extensive family-sized accommodation within the main house there is also a useful studio/annex as well as an attached double garage and timber outbuildings. The lovely mature gardens enjoy privacy and seclusion and are bordered by a stream which have extensive lawns, gravelled, decked and undercover areas. An additional garden houses the wonderfully hand crafted yurt, which has provided good income as a successful holiday let and has a separate timber summerhouse outbuilding with vintage-style suite, shower and WC.. 

Accommodation A welcoming entrance porch with retractable awning leads to the Reception Hall entrance door , having good views through multiple windows towards the estuary and rolling countryside beyond. There are double doors to a large Study, with views over the garden. A feature arch opens to the Sitting Room with bay windows, stairs to the first floor and a feature fireplace with stone surround and log-burning stove. A lobby opens to the Ground Floor Cloakroom /Shower Room. To the first floor the landing is set on two-levels and opens to the bedrooms and the Family Bathroom. The Master Bedroom Suite is spacious, being set on two levels with a Dressing Room area set at a lower level, being dual aspect and opening to a large En Suite Bathroom with a 5-piece suite with Jacuzzi-style bath, separate shower cubicle and bidet. Bedroom 2 enjoys good views over the gardens and beyond and opens to a further versatile dual aspect room that could provide additional bedroom space/studio with built in cupboards and window seat. Bedroom 3 is another good-sized room with some outlook and Bedroom 4 has a built in cupboard housing the boiler & h/w cylinder supplying gas-fired central heating.

From the aforementioned ground floor sitting room, a feature oak panel door leads to the extended/refurbished part of the house being wonderfully light and free-flowing. The elegant Kitchen area has a stylish range of units with high-gloss fronts and is complimented by extensive and contrasting areas of quartz-style work surfaces together with oak block surfaces. There is clever lighting, and an expansive island unit has an inset ceramic hob with filter over. Integrated appliances include a full-height fridge and separate freezer, an oven, microwave, warming drawer and dishwasher. There is a separate Laundry Room, also being very well-equipped with a good range of units, extensive work surface and under-surface space for utility appliances. The wonderful open-plan reception rooms wrap around the kitchen/laundry room space and comprise a Conservatory / Atrium area opening to the outside and with good views across the gardens that in turn opens to a wonderful Dining Room/Entertaining Space with feature hipped lantern skylight, contemporary style column radiators and sliding-folding doors to two elevations leading onto extensive decking, creating a wonderful sense of inside/outside living. This space opens to a higher level stylish Living room with another skylight as described and 2 contemporary-style column radiators that in turn opens to a Snug, completing these spaces perfectly and opening back down into the kitchen. 

The Studio/Annex Accessed from an undercover decked ramp to the rear of the house, with hot tub, shower and sitting areas, there is a well-proportioned Studio/Annex with vaulted ceiling, skylights, bay windows and en suite shower room.

The Annexe has its own combi boiler situated in the garage for central heating and hot water.

Access also from undercover decking to rear door of the garage.  

Outside The gardens and grounds are beautiful and expansive, enjoying excellent privacy and seclusion. There are lovely sweeping lawns, many mature shrubs and trees, decked and undercover areas and a large pond with water features and rocky surrounds. The plot is bordered by a stream, adding to the wonderful sense of tranquillity, with 3 bridges over to a beautiful orchard which, while not part of the property is subject to a long-standing lease agreement with Western Power Distribution. There is a large boundary fence on the eastern side of the plot as well as a large timber outbuilding/workshop. There is a well-proportioned double garage as well as expansive parking areas to the front and side.  

The Yurt An additional parcel of land, which adjoins the gardens to the north, has its own oak gated entrance from the lane, provides a wonderful setting for the beautiful Yurt, which has generated an excellent holiday let income. The yurt has a large 20ft diameter hand-made solid ash frame and raised floor, oak doors and window and is remarkably comfortable and very stylish indeed. This is near perfection for those seeking a glamping experience. There is a solid ash super king-sized bed with 'sunburst' headboard (subject to negotiation), a solid ash insulated raised floor, a wood burner, fridge, power and lighting. There is a separate luxurious shower room adjacent to the yurt within a new summerhouse with shower, WC, Victorian-style wash hand basin, electrically heated towel rail, automatic lighting and Megaflo hot water system. The surrounding outside areas, including barbecue area, provide the perfect place for guests or family to relax.
