Tenure: Freehold

'Kemps House' is a magnificent Grade II listed detached residence which occupies beautiful large south facing gardens. The property has been sympathetically and tastefully refurbished and renovated with great care being taken to enhance the Georgian character features which are commensurate with this era. Believed to date back to 1720, and built as the Dower House to Cann House, the features include four projecting slate hung bays, ornamental mouldings and various fireplaces.

Some of the improvements have included the installation of gas fired central heating, a security system and there is underfloor heating in the kitchen and nearby bathroom. A fabulous recent addition was the conversion of the adjoining stone barn to provide an outstanding and delightful kitchen/breakfast/family room which has vaulted ceilings, a range of built-in quality appliances (Miele dishwasher, full length fridge, a full length fridge/freezer, a two oven gas Aga with a 'Companion' incorporating two electric ovens and a gas hob). There are splendid modern bi-folding doors which then lead from this wonderful family room to the south facing terraces and gardens.

The original Georgian section of the accommodation comprises an impressive entrance hallway, a drawing room and a dining room on the ground floor. There is a sitting room, an office, internal access to the garage, a laundry room and a shower room on the lower ground floor. On the first floor there are two double bedrooms, one of which has an en-suite bathroom and the other an adjacent shower room. On the second floor there is a family bathroom and two further bedrooms with eaves storage.

The recent additions to the accommodation include the kitchen/breakfast/family room, a double bedroom with dressing room area and an en-suite shower room on the ground floor together with a further double bedroom with en-suite shower room on the first floor.

The beautiful south facing rear gardens are laid mainly to large sweeping lawns and also feature fabulous terraced seating areas. There is a summerhouse, an outside cloakroom suite, a workshop, a magical treehouse and an external store. The gardens are truly an exceptional feature of this property.

From the road there is a 'drive through' garage, via an electrically operated sectional door, which provides further access to a large turning bay and access to an Oak frame double carport. The recent changes to the garage and parking form an important improvement to the property and grounds.

Tamerton Foliot is a historic village which has three pubs, a church dating back to the 12th century and a variety of village facilities including shops, Post Office and a well-respected junior school. Derriford Hospital and various Science and Business Parks are nearby, and there is regular public transport to the City Centre some 5 miles distant.

The property overlooks its own garden and on towards extensive and protected Woodland beyond.

To the front of the property is a low wall with an established and well kept yew hedge, within set wrought iron railing opening to a stone pathway.
