Tenure: Freehold

Stoodley is a Grade II Listed family house thought to date back to the 18th Century (c1716) and a previous property on the site is mentioned in the Doomsday Book. The house stands in the middle of its own land and gardens with south facing views over the surrounding countryside and Dartmoor National Park. The house is part thatched and both the back of this and the ridge were redone 2 years ago. The house is bright and spacious with a wealth of character features including oak beams.

On the ground floor there is a lovely sitting room with an inglenook fireplace and a wood-burning stove. There is also a multi fuel stove in the dining room/kitchen. There is a useful utility room off the kitchen and beyond here is a large study/bedroom 4. This is adjacent to the garage/log store area and there may be potential here to develop/extend (subject to the necessary planning permissions).

Wooden turning stairs lead to the first floor where there are three bedrooms with pretty views across the gardens and open countryside. The master bedroom has an en suite bathroom. The front of the house has attractive leaded windows and the property is heated via night storage heaters and wood-burning stoves. Contact us for Virtual Tour link.

Stoodley is set in a peaceful location just outside the village of Holne, and is ideally located for those who wish to live in a glorious rural position whilst having good communication links with Exeter and the rest of the country. Holne has a pub, tea room, village church, playground and general store for everyday amenities.

The former stannary town of Ashburton, 3.7 miles from the property, has a lively range of shopping facilities, with a range of independent shops offering vintage goods, antiques, a family-run ironmonger's, a delicatessen, an artisan bakery, a fish deli, wine, tapas bar and cocktail bar and the renowned Ashburton Cookery School.

There is an abundance of wonderful walking, cycling and riding opportunities in the surrounding countryside and the property enjoys stunning south facing views across the Moor.

The cathedral city of Exeter, 24 miles away, is the most thriving city in the South West. The city offers a wealth of cultural activities with the theatre, the museum, arts centre and a variety of good shopping, including John Lewis, Waitrose and restaurants. Many primary and secondary schools can be found in Exeter including Exeter School and The Maynard School, whilst Exeter University is recognised as one of the best in the country.

Communications are excellent with the M5 motorway at Exeter providing links to the A38 to Plymouth, the A30 to Cornwall and Bristol and London to the North and East. There are regular rail services to London from Newton Abbot and Exeter St David's, taking as little as 2 hours. Exeter International Airport provides an ever increasing number of domestic and international flights, including two flights a day to London City Airport.

A cobbled yard lies directly in front of the house with a useful log store and open garage area. The majority of the gardens lie to the front of the house and have been a project of the current owner even featuring in Devon Life magazine. Large lawned areas have been created and lead down to a feature pond with a stone seat and a path loops around the entire garden. The garden is surrounded with trees and mature shrubs including various breeds of cornus, hydrangea, rhododendrons and camellias, plus fruit trees including pear and apple. The garden is approximately 1.41 acres in total. There is also a lovely pathway leading through an avenue of trees out to the land.

The land is formed of approximately 18.57 acres of pasture land. This land lies to the South of Stoodley and is currently let on a Farm Business Tenancy. The tenant has been served notice and this tenancy comes to an end on 24/03/18.
The land is formed of sloping pasture which runs down to a goyle with a natural stream running through it. Access is provided by two gateways off the public highway and the land is well fenced.
The land also has commoner's rights which provides grazing for 13 cattle and 50 sheep on the moor and estovers to take stone and sand. Further details and information on this and Farm Business Tenancy are available from the vendor's agents.
