Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

We've been to every corner of the UK on our travels, over the years and seen some incredible spaces. To this day, things don't ever get boring, and it's houses like this Unique home, tucked away in quite possibly the prettiest enclave we've ever visited. Days like this make what we do, so special.

The pretty village of Cockington is located just outside Torquay.  Just 10 mins on foot to be more precise, not that you'd know it!  The Gothic styled Victorian house is planted on the edge of a 400 acre protected estate and is so quiet, you feel like you're on the edge of nowhere.

We've often said it's the owners of these unusual properties that give them a unique edge, this house is no exception. There is a documented passion for period architecture, within this place, detailing the owners' dedication to the genre. This was their final foray in unique ownership and they've painstakingly gifted the place it's special feel.

Once through the gated entrance, the sweeping gravel driveway is able to accommodate a generous number of cars, without detracting from the rest of the grounds.  All of which have been meticulously manicured. The entire garden is screened with trees, providing a wonderfully private environment. There's also a number of entertaining spaces, dotted around, perfect for house parties and gatherings in any weather.

Accessing the house via the conservatory leads through to family size kitchen.  All of which has large windows overlooking the garden.. Taking you through to a cosy sitting room, with industrial size wood burning stove.

Climb the stairs to the first floor and head along the passageway, taking in the master bedroom to the left, with mullioned windows and oversize original bare boarded floors.

The next room on the tour doubles up as a utility room or reinstated to an additional bedroom.  Drop down, into another room and you are now over the arch of the house. Here are two more bedrooms, all continuing the period theme.

Two bathrooms are available, the ground floor with its 1000-year-old wash hand basin and the first floor serving the bedrooms.

This really is a one-off home, it ticks all of the requirements for that idyllic home!  It would also, make the perfect home for city dwellers planning on decamping to a rural life. Depending on how much space you require, the option of separating one side of the house to provide an income producing holiday let is also there.
