Humblebee represents a unique opportunity to acquire a wonderful property where architectural excellence and interior design combine perfectly with quality materials and contemporary flair. Standing in almost half an acre, the property has been built to a most imaginative and impressive design, with construction and finish specifically in mind for easy maintenance and high thermal value designed by architect Paul Humphries, the property is located in a gated and walled parkland setting and was featured in the Home Building and Renovating Magazine in December 2014, the year the property was built. It was also a finalist in the Best New Homes in the South West competition in 2015

The rooms are bright and spacious, especially the wonderful living area with bi-fold doors creating a spectacular feature perfect for entertaining. The quality to the fixtures and fittings
emphasise the attention to detail in particular to the beautiful
hand made oak stairwell. As much as the property makes for a lovely family home it would also adapt comfortably to lavish ground floor living. The elegant reception hall flows into a lovely open plan living area while a peninsular work surface give separation from a well appointed kitchen breakfast area. Bi-fold doors, extending almost the full length of the room, open onto a large covered veranda (with electric blinds) which in turn creates a fabulous room for entertaining or venue for alfresco dining. The ground floor master suite with twin dressing rooms and twin showers rooms ( separated by floor-to-ceiling shoji screens) again benefits from floor to ceiling bi-fold doors to two elevations opening either on to the gardens or veranda creating a wonderful airy and open feel. On the first floor there are three further bedrooms (One en-suite) and bathroom together with two roof balconies, one of which enjoying far reaching views towards Dartmoor. The gardens complement the property beautifully, carefully landscaped to encourage year round colour and the minimal of maintenance. The property is approached by a gravel drive (via electric security gates to the development) leading to ample parking and a detached double garage with electric doors.

The gardens are beautifully landscaped and planted with numerous exotic plants. Immediately to the south elevation, a level area makes for an excellent sun trap and area to relax and entertain. Well stocked flowerbeds separate this area from lawn. There are a number of features including a living wall, just before the entrance, and a tropical courtyard that is located behind the property. There a number of areas in which to sit and enjoy the garden including a balcony and a large roof terrace in which views to Dartmoor can be observed.
